Stick Kicks-Off in Hoboken

Freeholder Anthony “Stick” Romano kicked off his mayoral campaign this morning with a press conference at his headquarters on Washington Street, in the aftermath of Mayor Zimmer’s decision to opt against running for a third term.


“I am proud to be one of three generations of Hoboken natives, a grandson of immigrants,” Romano told the crowd.  “My parents instilled upon me the value of hard work, education, perseverance, loyalty, leadership, and friendship.  I am deeply committed to this great City of Hoboken and to all of you.  My primary goal is to be an advocate for the people.  Anyone who knows me knows that I fight for the rights of the people and I care deeply for their needs from all segments of the community.””


He joins a crowded field.  Councilman Mike DeFusco is already in.  Councilman Bhalla entered last week, Zimmer endorsement in-hand.  And Councilwoman Jen Giattino is poised to enter the race later on today.  Ronald Bautista and Karen Nason are in, too.


With the HCDO in a holding pattern, the multiple mayoral candidates are jockeying for influence with Senator Stack to obtain his endorsement – though he may decide against endorsing anyone, burned that he went with Zimmer only to have her abruptly exit the race last week.
