She will work with county and federal candidates to ensure their campaigns all have the necessary resources and organizational capacity needed to win, the HCDO announced this morning.
Assisting her will be HCDO Vice Chair Felix Henriquez, a trusted ally of state Senator (D-32)/North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco, who will serve as deputy coordinated campaign manager.
“We as an organization cannot stress enough how critical this June’s primary election is in protecting the future of our country. As we continue to keep fighting to elect the leaders who are committed to the values of the Democratic Party, it is essential for us to provide campaigns with the essential support team they need to be successful,” HCDO Chair Amy DeGise said in a statement.
“When I was elected Chairwoman, I promised to diversify our party, engage more women and young people in politics and promote policies that make our community stronger. Julietta and Felix are both seasoned campaign operatives and I am confident their experience will help pave the way for another high turnout election and bring outstanding representatives into office to represent the people of Hudson County.”
The HCDO endorsed their slate of candidates for the June 2 primary 11 days ago, with U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) expected to be on top of the ticket, anchored by eight of nine incumbent freeholders.
They held back on a presidential endorsement at the time, ultimately supporting U.S. Senator Bob Menendez’s (D-NJ) call for an open primary last week, which he doubled down on yesterday.
