From John Milardo, President, Middletown Managers and Professional Association
Members of the Middletown Managers & Professionals Association (MMPA) have voted to endorse individuals seeking to represent Middletown residents and taxpayers in the upcoming election. It is the first time since the inception of our Union, 27 years ago, that we have decided to become involved in local elections. Many issues involving Middletown have prompted our concern, and in turn, our action.
The Middletown Managers & Professionals Association has not been solicited to endorse any candidates. We have studied their track records, regardless of party affiliation, and endorsed those we believe can make a difference for the City of Middletown.
We feel strongly about the direction our City is being taken, and believe a change needs to be made. Understanding the City’s socioeconomic issues, we believe the endorsed candidates, have the knowledge and leadership to make the City of Middletown a better place to live and work in, for everyone. They are strong labor oriented individuals, not only for union workforces, but for the general working class citizen, and will serve the City well.
The Middletown Managers & Professionals Association is proud to endorse the following individuals for the 2009 Middletown Municipal election:
Incumbent Republican, Sebastian Giuliano
For Common Council:
Incumbent Republican, Joseph Bibisi
Incumbent Republican, Philip Pessina
Republican Candidate Michael Marino
Republican Candidate, Matthew Scarrozzo
