â€œMayor Zimmer has been a strong and effective advocate for Hoboken and a great partner, working with me to support our region and our State,” Stack said in a statement.
â€œMayor Zimmer has held the line on property taxes while achieving an AA+ bond rating, implemented real solutions to flooding, created many acres of new open space and so much more. She has led by example, setting a strong example for other local leaders. Iâ€™m proud to offer my support.â€
Zimmer of course graciously accepted the endorsement, also praising the job Stack has done in District 33.
â€œI thank Senator Stack for his important endorsement. We are honored to have him represent our City in the State Senate and I look forward to continuing our work together, as we make Hoboken an even better place to live,” Zimmer said.
Stack, who also seeks re-election in the Senate, already bolstered Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop’s re-election back in January.
The 33rd Legislative District includes Union City, Hoboken, Weehawken and the Jersey City Heights.
