“Brian Stack is more than just a respected leader within our Senate caucus. He’s a trusted friend whose generosity is matched only by his ability to motivate his supporters,” Scutari, also the chair of the UCDC, said in a statement.
“I am truly grateful for Brian and each and every person who showed up on a holiday weekend to help bring home victory for our Democratic team on Column A.”
Other elected leaders in attendance included Assemblywoman Linda Carter (D-22), Assemblyman Reginald Atkins (D-20), Union County Sheriff Peter Corvelli, Union County Commissioner Chair Sergio Granados, Commissioners Al Mirabella and Lourdes Leon, Commissioner candidate Michele Delisfort, Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp, Roselle Mayor Donald Shaw, along with several members of local governing bodies.
“I am so happy to support my good friend, Senate President Scutari and his team. These are dedicated leaders and volunteers and I’m thrilled to support these great Democrats in Union County,” added Stack, who brought approximately 300 volunteers.
The premiere Union County matchup for the June 6th primary pits Shaw against Jamel Holley, a former mayor and state assemblyman, a matchup expected to be close enough that Stack’s help was enlisted, as HCV first reported.
Scutari endorsed Stack and six other legislative candidates on the June 6th ballot back in January, when the Hudson County Democratic Organization made their endorsements in the 32nd and 33rd Legislative Districts official, along with county executive.
Earlier this month, Stack was widely credited with helping former U.S. Rep. Albio Sires once again become mayor in West New York.
