“This is an important day not just for our campaign, but also for Hoboken. Election Day is 100 days from today and that’s when we’ll have the opportunity to bring new ideas and new energy to City Hall,” DeFusco said in a statement.

“I’m humbled and proud to have submitted 564 signed nominating petitions for Mayor today, showing the tremendous support our campaign has received so far from throughout our city. We will be continuing to collect petitions up to the deadline in September, each one a personal conversation about the future of Hoboken.”

DeFusco, who announced his candidacy in late May, added that it’s time “for new leadership and a progressive agenda that will allow Hoboken to thrive.”

Council President Jen Giattino was the first mayoral candidate to submit her petitions for nomination, delivering the minimum of 360 signed petitions, on Thursday.

The deadline to file petitions for nomination for the Hoboken municipal elections is September 5th.
