Roque v. Munoz Part 2: Rodriguez launches Hudson Freeholder bid out of West New York

Key power players in the Democratic Party establishment this afternoon coalesced around West New York Commissioner Caridad Rodriguez for the office of Hudson County freeholder.

A former assemblywoman, Rodriguez is challenging incumbent Freeholder Jose Munoz, who was the feds’ star witness last year against Mayor Felix Roque in a federal hacking trial.

Roque beat the rap, and now he wants Rodriguez to beat Munoz.

Along with the mayor, Rodriguez has the backing of U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8), state Sen. Nick Sacco (D-32), Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32).
