Robles ends mayoral campaign, backs Torres in Paterson

Paterson mayoral candidate Lydia Robles ended her campaign today and threw her support behind former Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to withdraw my own candidacy to support and work with the candidacy of former Mayor Jose ‘Joey’ Torres on his journey to becoming mayor in the May 13, 2014 election,” said Robles, a local volunteer and member of the 6th Ward.

“Like myself, Joey is committed to providing the highest quality service and resources to maximize Paterson’s potential, to maximize community engagement and improve the quality of life for every resident of Paterson,” said the born and raised Paterson resident.

Robles said she plans to help Torres on the volunteer front.
