At St. Pat’s Parade, Healy goes for Obama association with Healy

In campaign mode at the Jersey City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Mayor Jerry Healy this weekend marched with Irish citizen Henry Healy, who is actually a cousin to President Barack Obama.

Henry Healy also did a $100 per-head fundraiser at the Liberty House for the mayor, who’s in a May re-election battle with Downtown Jersey CIty Councilman Steve Fulop.

Healy met Healy at the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

He is currently in the United States for a month and landed in Jersey City as part of his travels.

Marching in the parade with the mayor and his Irish guest were U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6), Fanwood Mayor Colleen Mahr, Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell (D-31), and Hoboken Councilman Tim Occhipinti.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is generally acknowledged to be the symbolic starting point for the mayor’s race.
