Neil Makhija, who is running for Montgomery County Commissioner in Pennsylvania, announced April 19, 2023, new endorsements with just weeks to go until the primary election May 16, where he is seeking the Democratic Party endorsement.

Calling them “major endorsements” Makhija identified three organizations, End Citizens United, SEIU Local 668, and Second Generation, as well as former PA Governor Ed Rendell, and former Montgomery County Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz.

End Citizens United works “to fix our democracy by getting big money out of politics and protecting the right to vote,” on its website.

SEIU Local 668 represents 20,000 social service workers — their members, including those in Montgomery County, work with some of the most vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, and people with mental illnesses and developmental disabilities, Makhija noted in his press release.

Second Generation is a national group that promotes the political engagement of immigrant communities to increase their participation in the political process where they live.

Rendell and Schwartz are long time leaders in the Democratic Party, and according to Makhija, they have “deep ties” to southeastern Pennsylvania and Montgomery County.

“I am more honored than I can say by their support,” Makhija said, saying he would be announcing more endorsements in coming days.
