Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer has hired Vijay Chaudhuri, a Hoboken resident who recently worked as the Director of Community Relations for U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY, D-14), as her new chief of staff.
â€œI look forward to working closely with Mr. Chaudhuri in the years ahead to make Hoboken an even greater place to live and work,â€ Zimmer said in a statement. â€œHis experience and knowledge of Hoboken will be a tremendous asset as we bring many exciting projects for our community to fruition.â€
Chaudhuri also expressed his excitement about the new opportunity.
â€œIâ€™m grateful for the opportunity to join this administration and serve the people of Hoboken,â€ Chaudhuri said in an e-mail.
â€œI look forward to working with Mayor Zimmer as we continue to address the issues that matter most to our community.â€
Chaudhuri replaces Daniel Bryan, who left the chief of staff position after over five years to join high-powered Hackensack public relations firm Beckerman Public Relations.
