Mayor Nick Sacco and his team kicked off their campaign with a massive show of support last night at their Re-Election Kickoff Rally. Well over 1,200 supporters packed the Schuetzen Park Catering Hall in North
Bergen, along with political leaders from Hudson County and throughout the state all together for one reason -- to show their support for Four More Years of the Sacco Team. Mayor Sacco and his Commission Team of Hugo Cabrera, Frank Gargiulo, Allen Pascual and Julio Marenco were cheered wildly by the enormous crowd of North Bergen residents and supporters and will now begin their door-to-door campaign from now right up until May 12.
"This rally was packed from wall to wall and the outpouring of support we received from so many friends and neighbors who see the progress our community has made and the bright future ahead was truly inspiring," said Mayor Sacco. "I would like to thank everyone who attended for their support and make them a promise that we will work harder than ever to earn every vote we can here in North Bergen and roll to victory on May 12."
In addition to the Sacco Team, the event was attended by political leaders from throughout Hudson County and New Jersey. They
included Congressman Albio Sires, Union City Mayor and State Senator Brian Stack, Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, Freeholder Anthony Vainieri, Freeholder Chairman Anthony "Stick" Romano, Freeholder Ken Kopacz, Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez, Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis, West New York Mayor Felix Roque, Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, Secaucus Mayor Mike Gonnelli, New Jersey Democratic Chairman John Currie, Bergen County Democratic Chairman Lou Stellato, Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo's Chief of Staff Phil Alagia and many more.
"Union City will stand shoulder to shoulder with Mayor Nick Sacco and his team in this election and we will be here in North Bergen to help in any way we can," said Union City Mayor and State Senator Brian Stack at the event.
Rally attendees were treated to sandwiches, refreshments and music at the event, which filled the massive catering hall to capacity. A slideshow played showing scenes from Mayor Sacco's administration over the past few years, highlighting the tremendous number of community events and public functions he participates in.
At the end of a great night, Mayor Sacco was joined on stage by his son Nick and grandson Nathan, who had a front row view to North Bergen history.
