“I have known Anthony for over 20 years. I believe he is the best person to move the City of Hoboken forward and my hope is that the citizens of Hoboken vote for Anthony as their next mayor,” PBA Local 109 President Derick James  said in a statement.

“Anthony is a strong advocate for the people and I have witnessed this first hand, both as a county freeholder and community activist. Anthony knows Hoboken’s history and he is a true public servant.”

Romano, a retired Hoboken police captain, received the endorsement of the local branch of the Fraternal Order of Police earlier this week.

This morning, Councilman-at-Large Ravi Bhalla secured the backing of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 825 and the Laborer’s International Union of North America (LIUNA) New Jersey.

Shortly after that, 1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco announced he had the support of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters.


  1. Duh
    This union works for the county
    If anyone could be more aligned with corrections officers it’s Anthony Romano

    Moron thinks this helps?
    We aren’t Camden you idiots

  2. And Ravi keeps collecting endorsements from labor unions who will expect to be paid back with massive over development. That makes sense since he and Zimmer have been building higher and wider to satisfy their contributing favored developers.

  3. Romano was very quiet at today’s debate
    Guess that deal to be Ravi’s OEM director is confirmed ?

    Bhalla is offering jobs up the wazoo to everyone

    Promising to keep the Marineview PILOT for wealthy people like Romano and The Flower lady

    His new pal Tim has the largest floor at Neuman Leathers that he sublets out and Ravi will make sure guys like Leo keep their jobs as long as they turn out applied for votes

  4. With a side of Carmelo

    Ravi importing the Mason losers who moved away but come back to wreak havoc on the HHA and left us with millions in potential lawsuit awards

      • Who can forget those putrid purple and green shirts Mason made for herself and her former campaign manager wore in the runoff where they supported the Applied candidates for at large, Ravi and Dawn. Then they ruin the HHA and Washington St then walk out when the going got tough.

    • Are you referring to former HHA chairwoman Dana Wefer? I don’t blame her for anything that happened at the HHA. I’m sure that she’ll be vindicated by the evidence when the case goes to trial.
