Today, Donald Norcross was sworn in to represent New Jersey’s First Congressional District in the 116th Congress and his first votes were in favor of two bills to reopen all government services that have been shut down since December 22nd and ensure workers get the paychecks they earned.
Rep. Donald Norcross, D-1st of Camden, also weighed in, saying federal workers would suffer “because of Trump’s egotistical, politically motivated temper tantrum.”
“In New Jersey alone, more than 5,000 federal employees will be impacted by this reckless Trump shutdown. It’s heartless,” Norcross added.
U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, D-1st of Camden, said the contract was welcome news for the region as it will add to the work performed at the site and help ensure high-paying jobs remain there for the foreseeable future.
“Today’s news means more high-tech jobs are coming to South Jersey to support our national defense,” said Norcross, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee overseeing defense spending and policy. “In an ever-changing and volatile world, we must ensure our military has the tools and manpower needed to defend our nation. This award for Lockheed Martin in Moorestown means South Jersey’s workers will be building the best equipment possible to counter threats for our military.”
