“I have had the pleasure of knowing Jimmy Davis for many years and I have seen firsthand how hard he works for the people of Bayonne,” Kopacz said in a statement.
“Our community is in a better place today because of the work Mayor Davis has done and he has my total support and confidence to continue to lead Bayonne forward over the next four years.”
Kopacz made his endorsement known at a fundraiser at the Chandelier restaurant on Thursday, also signaling he planned to seek re-election next year.
Also a Bayonne assistant superintendent of schools, Kopacz was first elected in 2014, replacing Doreen DiDomenico, and was re-elected in 2017 and 2020.
Team Davis has also recently secured the support of the Hotel and Gaming Trades Council and the Bayonne Education Association.
“It’s an honor to have the support of Commissioner Kopacz and I want to keep working with him to improve our city, delivering the quality of life that Bayonne residents deserve,” added Davis.
“The partnership between city and county government has already brought great results to Bayonne like the improvements at Stephen Gregg Park and much more, and I’m excited to work together to keep delivering for Bayonne.”
While Kopacz’s support is certainly welcome, it is not surprising, as he was one of many members of the Hudson County Democratic Organization who attended Team Davis’ formal campaign kickoff in February.
