REGION, March 3rd- Lackawanna County Mayority Democratic Commissioner Corey O’Brien is challenging incumbent United States House of Representative Paul Kanjorski (Democrat-11th Legislative District) in the May 18th Primary Election and recently received the endorsement of the two building and construction trades labor federations in the region.

On March 3rd, Mr. O’Brien’s campaign announced the Scranton Building and Construction Trades Council in Lackawanna County and the Northeastern Building and Construction Trades Council in Luzerne County voted to support his attempt to defeat Mr. Kanjorski. Mr. Kanjorski is seeking a 14th two-year term as the Representative from the 11th Legislative District in Washington. The district includes the three major cities of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton.

The President of the Scranton Building Trades Council is Drew Simpson, an Officer of the International Brotherhood of Carpenters Union, and the President of the Northeastern Building and Construction Trades Council is Mike Rozitski, a retired Officer of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT).

The majority of unions affiliated with the two labor federations have not endorsed either candidate.
