West Orange, New Jersey – Essex County Democratic Chairman LeRoy J. Jones, Jr. endorses Congressman Rob Menendez for re-election to Congress.

“Rob is a fierce champion for the people of the 8th Congressional District. His focus on kitchen table and pocketbook issues and his commitment to strengthening our families and empowering our communities have distinguished him in his first term,” said Chairman LeRoy J. Jones, Jr. “Rob is responsive to the needs of his constituents, securing millions of dollars in federal funding for the district to help fund everything from infrastructure to healthcare to childcare. He is a fierce advocate for gunsense legislation and opposes efforts to infringe on women’s reproductive freedoms. And, in just a short time, Rob has been appointed and elected to leadership positions in Congress. Rob is a hard worker who knows how to steer the path of his own legacy, and effectively lead the district well into the future.

We need representatives in Congress who can forge relationships, be effective, and actually get legislation passed. That is what Rob has been doing and I’m proud to support him in his re-election.”
