“I stand fully behind my friend John Currie for another term as Chairman of the State Democratic Party,” Sacco said in a statement released over the weekend.
“John Currie has worked tirelessly to unite and strengthen our party, and his leadership and experience is invaluable as we all work together to move our party forward.”
Currie has a earned a solid reputation throughout the party, also earning the support of South Jersey Democratic leader Senate Pres. Steve Sweeney (D-3).
Serving as the deputy vice chair of the State Democratic Party from 1995 until 2013, when he was unanimously elected to the party’s top post, Currie was one of dozens of Democrats that attended Sacco’s annual mayor’s ball last month.
“It’s an honor to be here tonight with all of you, but particularly my good friend and senator, mayor, you know we’re there for you each and everyday,” Currie said during some brief remarks at the event.
Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32), another top Democratic ally of Sacco, was once again chosen to serve in the powerful position earlier this month.
