Department of Public Works Director Eric Jackson dropped out of the race and endorsed former Mercer County Freeholder Tony Mack for mayor.
Mack welcomed the endorsement as he looks forward to his June 15th runoff contest against At-Large Councilman Manny Segura.
“I have known Eric for a long time,’’ Mack said. “Although we have been opponents on some of the issues during this campaign, the common ground we share is our love for and commitment to the City of Trenton. Eric always has been an advocate for what is right and we are proud to have him in our corner.’’
Jackson finished third in the May 11th mayoral race behind Mack and Manuel “Manny’’ Segura.
“Tony and I both ran very dignified and professional campaigns,’’ Jackson said. “Although I was in this to win it, I am proud to give my support to my friend at this time. Tony knows the issues, he can handle the issues and he is the one best prepared to move our city forward.’’
