#29 William Mullen Building and Construction Trades Council, President
He’s another regular on the list. And how can he not be? As president of the state’s Building and Construction Trades Council, he works closely with 13 local building trades councils, more than 100 local unions and more than 150,000 individual members. That brings an ability to have a huge impact on business and politics. The council’s support of Christie over Buono — one of many things to doom the state senator’s 2013 campaign — was huge.
