Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise was endorsed for re-election by three Hudson County mayors on Tuesday.
DeGise received the endorsement of Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, West New York Mayor Felix Roque and Guttenberg Mayor Gerald Drasheff. DeGise publicly secured the endorsements at the North Hudson Campus of Hudson County Community College, located in Union City.
Six other Hudson County mayors have already endorsed DeGise’s re-election bid and more announcements are expected soon. DeGise is the only announced candidate for County Executive in the June 2015 Democratic primary election.
Hudson County Freeholder Bill O’Dea, a Democrat, is reportedly considering a primary run against DeGise.
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, the Democratic chief executive of the largest of Hudson County’s twelve municipalities, has yet to endorse any announced or potential candidate.
