“Great early morning w/the Ward “F” team campaigning for Assemblywoman Angela McKnight and Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalotti – looking forward to June 6th and supporting the Hudson Democratic ticket on Column “E,” Fulop said in a Facebook post.
McKnight and Chiaravalloti are facing spirited challengers in the form of veteran Jersey City Education Association operative Kristen Zadroga Hart and Bayonne Board of Education Trustee Christopher Munoz.
Fulop’s support is a welcome boost for the incumbents, who are running on the Hudson County Democratic Organization line.
Thus far, the major formal endorsements in the race have come from the Jersey City Education Association and the New Jersey Education Association, who both broke rank and went with a split ticket of Chiaravalloti and Hart.
