Ramos campaign of events week, Mayor Dawn Zimmer campaign picks up Laborers Union endorsement

The Ruben Ramos campaign for mayor announces:
Less than one month until Election Day!

Sprinting to the Finish

In more ways than one!

We're less than a month from election day and the candidates are kicking the campaign into high gear! Last Thursday we hosted the first of several "Whine" and Cheese events at campaign headquarters to talk about solutions to Hoboken's flooding problem. On Saturday morning, our candidates gave out free coffee and donuts to other soccer moms and dads at 1600 Park. On Saturday afternoon, Ruben ran the City Challenge obstacle race - the above photo shows him crossing the finish line with his son Ryan!

The re-elect Mayor Dawn Zimmer campaign announces:




NJ Laborers Union Supports Zimmer for Hoboken Mayor

The New Jersey Laborers Union has announced that it is supporting Dawn Zimmer and the Zimmer Team in their respective races for Mayor and Council of the City of Hoboken.  The union cited Mayor Zimmer’s policies to modernize both the city’s government and its infrastructure as one of the reasons for the endorsement. Both Zimmer and her council candidates combine a keen understanding of the needs of Hoboken residents with the unparalleled skills to deliver results.

 Laborers Vice-President and Eastern Regional Manager Raymond M. Pocino voiced his support:  “In just four short years Dawn Zimmer has taken a strong community and made it stronger, and looking forward, the Zimmer Team has the vision and the ability to make Hoboken even stronger in the future,” said Pocino.  “Dawn Zimmer has helped Hoboken become a place where quality of life has improved, businesses have thrived, and visitors can enjoy themselves.” 

The New Jersey Laborers Union is the statewide affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), with more than 20,000 members statewide. During the weeks leading up to the election, the New Jersey Laborers Union will mobilize hundreds of member-volunteers who will work on get-out-the-vote drives and member-to-member political education.
