“Pete represents what millennials do best,” said the 50 mayors in USA Today Op-Ed
Roselle Park Mayor Joe Signorello joined more than 50 mayors from across the country to endorse Pete Buttigieg for President. Other mayors from this region included: Ron Strouse (Doylestown, PA), Ross Swords, Jr (Brownsville, PA), Noam Bramson (New Rochelle, NY), Mark Barbee (Bridgeport, PA), Matt Shorraw (Monessen, PA), Shawn Raup-Konsavage (Bernville, PA),
They made the announcement in an op-ed penned for USA Today.
“Here’s what Mayor Buttigieg gets that other Democrats don’t: Liberal ideals like supporting green energy, equality, and expanded healthcare are all pretty popular, but the deck has been stacked against the left since the 80’s. In order for Democrats to enact meaningful generational change, we need a seismic shift in how our government works, and how the system is structured.
‘Pete represents what millennials do best, we address the cause instead of continually plugging away at fixing symptoms.”
Along with this announcement, Pete for America is launching a “Mayors for Pete” program. This program will comprise of a growing network of mayors and former mayors who will actively engage their communities in support of Buttigieg.
