Pascrell unveils support of former Bergen Chairman Mecca

U.S. Rep Bill Pascrell, running in a 9th Congressional District Primary against U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman, today showed off the support of former Bergen County Democratic Chairman Dan Mecca.

“For years, I’ve known Bill Pascrell as a man who is deeply embedded in the neighborhoods he serves,” said Mecca, who served as Bergen County Democratic Chairman from 1988 to 1991. “Bill doesn’t fight for political agendas, he fights for people and the things they need to get a fair shake in this tough economy. Now more than ever, northern New Jersey’s middle class needs Bill Pascrell to stay right where he is: in Congress fighting for us.”

Congressman Pascrell said he was grateful for former Chairman Mecca’s support.

“Chairman Mecca understands how important it is for Democrats to stick together during this critical time,” said Pascrell, a former mayor and lifelong resident of Paterson. “That is why I greatly appreciate his kind endorsement. The campaign’s strong momentum just got another boost thanks to Chairman Mecca.”
