The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) this morning endorsed Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy’s re-election.
“Having been in office during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, Mayor Healy set the right course for Jersey City to dig out of this recession and has an aggressive plan for our future,” said Ray Greaves, NJ State ATU Chairman. “Mayor Healy’s leadership is especially impressive given the tactics of his opponents who remind me so much of the obstruction the Tea Party unleashes against President Obama.”
“Mayor Healy always does what’s best for Jersey City and all our working families,” said Earl Hardy, President of Local 821. “He fights for the things we care about and takes peoples’ concerns to heart. Mayor Healy tirelessly fights block-by-block for Jersey City’s working families.”
“Every action I take and decision I make is motivated by what’s best for Jersey City and our future,” said Healy. “I’m honored to have the support of the transit workers union – who keep things moving in this city I love and where I’ve raised my family.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
