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.”
