NEWARK, NJ – U.S. Representative Donald M. Payne, Jr., (D-Newark) is announcing the endorsement of the leaders of the County Board of Commissioners in each of the counties within the 10th Congressional District. Essex County Commissioner President Rufus Johnson, Hudson County Commission Chair Anthony Vainieri and Union County Commission Chair Rebecca Williams are the latest public officials to join the Payne for Congress campaign.

“I served in county government and know how much the work that gets done there can impact residents’ quality of life, so I’m very thankful to receive this support from the leaders of each county board,” said Congressman Payne. “Elected officials at the local and county level know what their constituents need from the federal government, and I’m gratified they recognize the work we’re doing to deliver for working families across the 10th District.”

Prior to his election to the House of Representatives, Congressman Payne served as an Essex County Freeholder at-Large from 2006 to 2012. During that time he worked to improve public services at the county level while keeping expenses in check and stabilizing county taxes. As a Congressman, Donald Payne has continued fighting for working families by passing legislation to create over 400,000 infrastructure jobs in New Jersey, expand health care access and keep neighborhoods safe.
