Team Buono and Silva make first appearance on campaign trail in Willingboro - NJ Workers' Voices, 31 July 2013 [cached]
WILLINGBORO - A day after Barbara Buono, introduced Milly Silva, a Hispanic labor leader, as her running mate, the pair took their middle-class message to a senior center in Burlington County.
Buono announced the 42-year-old Silva would be her lieutenant governor candidate Monday in one of the most energetic events in a campaign that has been hobbled by inter-party strife and defections.
A longtime labor organizer, Silva is the vice president of SEIU 1199, which represents 7,000 nursing home workers in 74 facilities.
But her political resume is bare - having never held elected office and voting sporadically in recent elections - leading the Christie campaign to charge that Silva is uncommitted and unqualified to be governor.
Milly Silva has spent her life standing up for people like us, the middle class."
She suggested the criticism was more about Silva a woman and noting that two former California governors - Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger - didn't have to answer those questions.
Silva conceded that her lack of voting in recent legislative and gubernatorial elections was "embarrassing," but said she worked hard as a union leader to get thousands of people to the polls.
"Milly Silva has been more responsible for getting people to the polls than Chris Christie ever has," Buono said.
"As to Ms. Silva, I never heard of her until this weekend so it's hard for me to have any judgment on her," he said.
"Me and Barbara share the same values, we know about struggling," Silva said.
James McGreevey, got the room full of supporters fired up in the minutes before Buono and Silva took to the microphone.
