” … As election day fast approaches, I’m glad to lend my full support to Mayor Ravi Bhalla and his Council team: Jim Doyle, Joe Quintero, and Emily Jabbour,” Russo, who had briefly considered challenging Bhalla, said in an email blast yesterday.
“The pandemic has tested Hoboken residents in ways that we’ve never experienced in our lifetime. But throughout it all – Mayor Bhalla, along with his team in Emily and Jim, worked around the clock to ensure that Hoboken shut down to stem the spread of the virus – a decision that led the rest of the country into taking the pandemic seriously.”
Jabbour tweeted her thanks for the endorsement last night.
“Part of being an effective leader is working across the community to build consensus for a better #Hoboken. I appreciate Councilman @MichaelRussoNJ’s support & recognition of all that we have been able to accomplish together. #TeamBhalla.”
While Bhalla is running unopposed, there are 10 council-at-large candidates seeking three seat and early voting is available at City Hall through Halloween.
