“Anthony has always been there in support of labor union since we’ve known him, both as a freeholder and hopefully as the future mayor of Hoboken. There is no other candidate more qualified than him to serve as mayor,” HCCLC President Peter Busacca said in a statement.
“We are there for him since he has always stood for the rights of our union members.”
“I’m very humbled and honored because of the close relationship I’ve had all my life with labor, my father was a union president, I was a labor officer, I stand with my brothers and sisters of the CLC,” Romano added over the phone.
“I am extremely grateful for their confidence in me to support the initiatives of the council.”
The HCCLC is an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and they represent the interests of a number of trade workers.
