“Over the years, you have shown great leadership and integrity during your tenure as Freeholder for the 5th District of Hudson County, a county in which many of our members reside,” said NJFOP President William Provost.

“This record of service to the community, including your career in both law enforcement and as an educator, has impressed our organization. This organization has reviewed your goals for the City of Hoboken … we find your candidacy represents the best opportunity for the residents of Hoboken to continue and prosper in the coming years.”

With just 22 days to go before the municipal elections, mayoral candidates are expected to roll out a number of endorsements in the 11th hour as they try to build momentum leading up to November 7th.

Romano, who also has the support of the Hudson County Central Labor Council, squares off with Council President Jen Giattino, 1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco, Councilman-at-Large Ravi Bhalla, business owner Karen Nason and activist Ronald Bautista in the crowded mayor’s race.
