Hudson County Building Trades 22 Unions Endorse Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Zimmer Team Council Slate

Hoboken, New Jersey—Today the Hudson County Building Trade, comprised of 22 local unions, announced it is endorsing Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the Zimmer Team Council Slate of David Mello, Ravi Bhalla and James Doyle in the November 5th election.

The Hudson County Building Trades (HCBT) cited Mayor Zimmer’s proven track record of accomplishments and her commitment to improving infrastructure and creating jobs for working families as some of the reasons that union members are supporting Mayor Zimmer and her council slate.

President of HCBT Patrick Kelleher stated: “Mayor Zimmer and her council team have shown extraordinary leadership in the course of four years. From walking into a City Hall in the middle of serious financial trouble, to Hurricane Sandy, the Mayor and her team have proven time and time again that they are the real deal when it comes to addressing the major concerns of the working families in Hoboken."

He went on to note, “This team has an innovative and comprehensive plan to protect Hoboken from future storms and reduce flooding. They are also rolling up their sleeves and tackling Hoboken’s infrastructure challenges. This proactive approach will improve the quality of life in Hoboken and create needed jobs."

“My team and I are honored to have the endorsement of the Hudson County Building Trades," said Mayor Zimmer. "In four years, the Zimmer Team and I have worked hard to get Hoboken back on the right path. We are working to make sure we have smart development, are protected from flooding, are creating jobs, and improving overall quality of life for all of Hoboken. This endorsement highlights that the people of Hoboken know we are working to lead this city forward.”

The HCBT includes 22 local building trades (complete list is below). This major union endorsement for Mayor Zimmer and her team significantly adds to an already impressive amount of union support for the Zimmer Team. The IUOE Local 825 and New Jersey Laborers endorsed Mayor Zimmer and her Council slate on October 15th and October 7th respectively. All of the endorsements highlighted the Mayor’s response to Sandy and her work to stabilize a City in crisis as reasons for support.
