NORTH BERGEN, NJ – (October 30, 2017) President Harold Daggett told hundreds of ILA Members at a meeting and rally in support of New Jersey Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Phil Murphy that they get their family and friends out on Election Day and “vote for Phil Murphy.”
“I’m calling you Governor Murphy already because you are going to win,” said ILA President Daggett.
The ILA leader said Murphy was a fighter who was going to “fight like hell for the working man.”
Phil Murphy entered the ILA meeting and walked through a sea of cheering members holding up red, white and blue signs proclaiming “ILA Loves Phil Murphy”!
Election Day is a week from tomorrow, on Tuesday, November 7 and Democratic Candidate Phil Murphy is endorsed by the New Jersey AFL-CIO and many other unions. New Jersey AFL-CIO President Charles Wowkaneck and Secretary-Treasurer Laurel Brennan were present at the ILA meeting for Murphy.
“This guy’s the real deal,” said Dennis Daggett, ILA Executive Vice President and President of ILA Local 1804-1, the local that hosted the meeting for Phil Murphy. “He’s one of the few if not the only one who really understands how important the port is to the economy to the State of New Jersey.
“He also understands that it’s not right that our (ILA) people have to go to work each and every day walking on eggshells because of a Gestapo regulatory agency.”
When Phil Murphy spelled out four major commitments of his campaign, he concluded with a promise: “To figure out the damn Waterfront Commission once and for all.”
