Speaking of his running mates, Gonzalez stated,” I am extremely excited about the caliber of knowledge, character, and service experience of my two running mates. Having extremely qualified council members servicing the City of Perth Amboy is essential. The City Council serves as the legislative branch of government that passes all of the ordinances required to govern our city effectively. Ana Maria and Kevin are persons of excellence who have shown a  deep commitment to our city and will also demand the best from myself and my new administration.”

The three candidates have announced that they will run under the PERTH AMBOY DEMOCRATS FOR CHANGE banner and look forward to taking their campaign directly to the people of Perth Amboy.

“The three of us have spent a great deal of time together exchanging our ideas on how to make Perth Amboy a better place. Now we look forward to taking our case directly to the people of Perth Amboy via door-to-door contact and media interaction” said Zevallos.
