Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and former state Senate Majority Leader Bernie Kenny (D-33) were just a couple of notable Hudson Dems who came out to support Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s five council candidates at a fundraiser last night.
Hosted inside Arthur’s Steaks on Washington Street, with appearances from the likes of Fulop, Kenny, City Council President Ravi Bhalla, Democratic District 33 Assembly nominee Annette Chaparro and Craig Guy – Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise’s Deputy Chief of Staff – Zimmer expressed her excitement about the “fantastic team” she is supporting.
Mike DeFusco, Dana Wefer, Tiffanie Fisher and Jen Giattino, running in the 1st, 4th, 2nd and 6th Wards, respectively, all addressed the room as well.
Ward 5 Councilman Peter Cunningham, who arrived late due to a committee meeting, also has the support of Zimmer in this election cycle.
After their remarks, Zimmer explained to Hudson County View why she choose to support this slate of candidates, further stating that she believes every race – aside from the uncontested 3rd Ward – will be equally tough.
