Pair of local trade councils give Haberek their support


STONINGTON — Two local trade councils have endorsed First Selectman Ed Haberek Jr. in his bid for re-election.

The Norwich-New London Building and Construction Trade Council and the Southeastern Connecticut Central Labor Council haven given Haberek their support for the Nov. 5 municipal election.

Haberek said he was honored by the endorsements.

“In six years, we have worked hard moving Stonington forward,” Haberek wrote in a press release. “We are working to make sure we have smart development, quality infrastructure, creating jobs, and improving overall quality of life in Stonington. I thank them for their support.”

Keith Brothers, business manager of the Norwich-New London council, said, “First Selectman Haberek has a proven track record of accomplishments and his commitment to improving infrastructure and creating jobs for working families is what we need to continue.”

The New London-Norwich Building And Construction Trades Council consists of 13 crafts representing 10,000 members and their families.
