â€œMayor Fulop has become a leader not just of Jersey City, but of Hudson County as our area takes its place as the economic driver of the state,” Sacco said in a statement.
“He has assembled an excellent record as a Mayor, always taking time to help residents with their everyday issues while still keeping his attention focused on Jersey City’s future. I am proud to support Mayor Fulop for re-election and look forward to continuing to work with him.â€
The endorsement comes after Fulop received the support of notable fellow local elected officials state Senator (D-33)/Union City Mayor Brian Stack and County Executive Tom DeGise last month.
At Stack’s endorsement event, Hudson County View made note that Sacco would be following suit in the coming weeks.
â€œI am grateful to receive the endorsement Senator Sacco, as he has such a strong record of public service and community involvement,â€ added Fulop.
“Senator Sacco continues to demonstrate his commitment to residents and I am proud that he has expressed his confidence in me to serve another term as Mayor.”
The endorsement the most recent endorsement took place at a $500 a plate fundraiser at Liberty House in Jersey City, where the Fulop campaign says 200 supporters were in attendance.
Fulop currently faces challengers in former city Corporation Counsel Bill Matsikoudis and ex-Assemblyman Charles Mainor. The Jersey City municipal elections are on November 7.
