PARSIPPANY — Parsippany Mayor-elect Michael Soriano and Councilwomen-elect Janice McCarthy and Emily Peterson announced their support for Mikie Sherrill for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District.
“Since announcing her campaign in the spring, Mikie has shown that she has the poise, intelligence and strength to fight for the people of Parsippany and the 11th District in the House of Representatives,” Soriano said. “I could not imagine a better representative for Morris County than a prosecutor and veteran of our armed forces. We need a leader in Washington who will fight for our men and women in uniform, at home and overseas.”
Sherrill, a former helicopter pilot in the United States Navy, announced her candidacy in May.
Janice McCarthy added, “Mikie Sherrill: courage, character, proven leadership and judgment. Her credentials are unquestionable. She has served our country honorably and now represents our best hope for New Jersey’s future. She is a voice for a new generation; that’s why I’m supporting Mikie Sherrill for Congress to represent the 11th District.”
“I fully support Mikie Sherrill for CD 11. Her military service and professional experience as a prosecutor compliment her compassion and commitment to working families in New Jersey. As a working mom myself, I couldn’t ask for a better representative in Washington,” stated Emily Peterson.
Soriano continued, “I had the privilege of knocking on doors with Mikie in Mount Tabor over the summer. Nothing shows a commitment to learning the needs of the people quite like canvassing door-to-door. I know that Mikie will spend 2018 running a grassroots campaign, knocking on doors across the 11th District and bringing the concerns of the people directly to Washington. That’s how we begin to change our country for the better.”
