Fulop, Sacco, Stack and Wainstein help make Thanksgiving complete for families


Hudson County Mayors Steven Fulop, Nick Sacco and Brian Stack, as well as community activist Larry Wainstein, all played their part to make sure those less fortunate had a scrumptious turkey dinner on their plate for Thanksgiving.

Fulop, the Jersey City Mayor, helped the Jersey City Youth Foundation distribute approximately 7,400 turkeys at the Jersey City Medical Center on Saturday, with Care Point Health also contributing to the cause.

Sacco, the North Bergen mayor, as well as the State Senator of the 32nd district, handed out turnkeys, canned goods and trimmings to over 500 North Bergen residents at the township recreation center at 6300 Meadowview Ave. on Monday.

The event was organized by North Bergen Emergency Relief.

Stack, the Union City mayor and State Senator of the 33rd district, is notorious for handing out an unfathomable amount of poultry for turkey day, teaming up with Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-3) to give away 20,000 turkeys on Sunday.

Additionally, Wainstein, the leader of the North Bergen Concerned Citizens Group who many expect to run a ticket against Sacco in the May 2015 North Bergen election, hosted a formal dinner at Schuetzen Park last Friday, where he says roughly 1,800 residents came out to kickoff the holiday season.

“It was an honor to be among many friends, family, and neighbors. The turnout was very humbling, as many residents expressed their passion for positive change in North Bergen,” Wainstein told Hudson County View in an email.

“I would personally like to thank all the volunteers who donated countless hours in making this event a great success. We will continue to provide free classes and social services to all and be a voice for those in need of help.”

  1. It’s amazing in the past 30 years, how Sacco has never given away turkeys or even cared about feeding the needy in his town. Yet, now since it’s coming to election time, he hands out just 500 turkeys. Really? I applaud Mr. Wainstein for continuously feeding thousands year after year. Plus, for the past few years he has offered free social services and classes to people in town. What has Sacco offered? Absolutely Nothing in 30 years.

  2. Larry Wainstein is trying to preserve the Palisades in North Bergen. He is against chopping into the Palisades and building high rises. River Road cannot handle the additional traffic. Senator Brian Stack is also lobbying for the preservation of the Palisades. Bravo for Stack and Wainstein !!

    • I certainly M not a Sacco-ite, but…Whatever Larry is doing is news to me…Maybe he shud come to THM’s & share…I know 11 AM is not a good time for…but If Larry wants to be Mayor…he shud at least be there! Herb Shaw & I rn’t running for anything, but we show up, none the less!

  3. It’s truly amazing! where did Mayor Sacco get the turkeys from? It should be public record? Did he shakedown Walmart? Was he asking target to give more donations? Nothing came out of his pocket directly. He is a tired old man who reaps the benefits of the tax payers and gives nothing back to the community.
