Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy, Hoboken Mayor David Roberts and Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise have disavowed their connection to a fundraising for Hudson County Freeholder Maurice Fitzgibbons.
"Yesterday, fundraising invitations for a 'Power Lunch' benefiting Freeholder Maurice Fitzgibbons arrived in mailboxes all over Hudson County. We were surprised and disappointed to see our names listed on this ticket as "special guests" €” creating the impression that we are supporting this event and its sponsor," the three said in a joint statement. "The truth is that our names were printed by the freeholder without our authorization. We want to make it very clear to everyone that we have nothing to do with this event and are not supporting it in any way."
