Redistricting produces emotions. Anger and anger and anger are some, particularly in Republican circles right now.
For state Sen. Nicholas Sacco (D-32) of North Bergen it was Thomas Wolfian wonder at coming home to West New York where he was raised.
“My parents will finally have an opportunity to vote for me,” said an emotional Sacco this evening, appearing with his newly forged team, Assemblyman Vincent Prieto (D-Secaucus) and Angelica Jimenez of West New York.
An ally of West New York Mayor Sal Vega’s, Jimenez joined the ticket after redistricting forced Sacco out of Jersey City and into West New York and Gutenberg, which were political catnip for state Sen. Brian P. Stack (D-Union City) until redistricting pushed him into picking up that piece of Jersey City that Sacco lost.
This evening, in addition to building up Vega – who’s in a re-election battle against challenger Dr. Felix Roque – Sacco formally re-introduced JC police detective Sean Connors to the Hudson County Democratic Organization-oiled crowd.
Connors is running with Stack in the 33rd.
