3rd Ward Bayonne Councilman Gary La Pelusa has been unveiled as the first running mate on Mayor Jimmy Davis’ slate in his bid for a third term.
“Serving alongside Mayor Davis, I’m proud of the progress we’re making in Bayonne and the fact that we are consistently improving our city services while keeping property taxes stable, especially during these challenging economic times,” La Pelusa said in a statement.
“Bayonne’s future is bright and I believe that we need to continue moving forward with Mayor Davis’ leadership, so I’m proud to once again run on his team.”
La Pelusa is the founder of the Gary La Pelusa Association, a non-profit group dedicated to informing the public, helping create a better quality of life, and helping others in need while recognizing deserving individuals for their dedication and hard work in the community.
He also successfully ran with Davis in 2014 and 2018.
“Gary La Pelusa is one of the hardest working public servants Bayonne has ever seen and I’m excited to once again run with him on our team,” added Davis.
“We’ve worked together to move our city forward and make progress in so many key areas, but there is more that must be done and there is no one I would rather work with to deliver for the people than Councilman La Pelusa.”
Davis officially announced his re-election campaign earlier this week and will be rolling out additional members of his slate as well as endorsements and other news in the coming weeks.
