The Democratic Political Alliance PAC has previously expressed support for Council-at-Large candidate Elvin Dominici, which they reiterated today, and endorsing his running mates Christ Gadsden and June Jones.
In the ward races, the DPA PAC is supporting Kristen Zadroga-Hart, Danielle Freire, Solomon, and Frank “Educational” Gilmore in A, D, E, and F, respectively.
“Big business has made huge profits in Jersey City, while small businesses struggle from the pandemic. We need fresh, innovative ideas on our city council that will look out for the needs of working families, small businesses and those most in need of support,” HACA President Luis Jimenez said in a statement.
“Independent leadership on the city council will make sure our voices are heard and taken into consideration when funding and prioritizing municipal programs that will help those in need, be it children, families, or small businesses.”
They declined to endorse anyone for mayor or in Wards B and C.
HACA is currently the largest small business association within Hudson County and their membership is currently made up of over three hundred local small businesses who are actively promoting the candidates.
The DPA PAC does not currently have any filings listed on the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission’s (NJ ELEC) online database.
