“We are proud to enthusiastically endorse the Team Bhalla slate. Mayor Ravi Bhalla, Councilman Jim Doyle, Councilwoman Emily Jabbour and Joe Quintero stand out for their active support for full equality for LGBTQ+ communities,” GSE Executive Director Christian Fuscarino said in a statement.
With 150,000 members statewide, GSE works closely with leaders in Trenton to ensure that the communities it serves experience lived equality.
“We look forward to working with Garden State Equality to ensure full equality for all Hoboken residents and all New Jerseyans. We strongly believe that our diversity is our strength,” added Councilwoman-at-Large Emily Jabbour.
Throughout Hudson County, the GSEAF also endorsed all nine state legislators, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, and Chief Municipal Prosecutor/Ward E council candidate Jake Hudnut.
Speaking broadly about the dozens of candidates they are backing throughout NJ, Fuscarino said they do not take their endorsement process lightly.
“Throughout our endorsement process, we carefully consider what each candidate will do to help marginalized communities across our state, through schools, healthcare, and much more. We are proud to support these candidates for office in 2021 and look forward to working with them to ensure equality for New Jersey’s marginalized communities.”
Early voting is underway at Hoboken City Hall and will continue through Halloween.
