Endorsements roll in for Cammarano
Another day, another round of endorsements
Supporters are coming out in droves to back Mayoral candidate Peter Cammarano.
Police Officers Back Cammarano; “Best Qualified” to Protect Public
The Hoboken PBA is endorsing Peter Cammarano for Mayor of Hoboken.
“We strongly encourage all residents who care about the future of this city to join us in supporting Peter Cammarano on June 9,” said PBA President Vince Lombardi. “Peter is fully committed to public safety and will work with our membership to make sure that our families, homes and businesses are protected today and tomorrow.”
Lombardi said that Cammarano is showing real courage by opposing the state plan to lay-off 16 police officers as a budget-cutting measure. His opponent Dawn Zimmer has said she supports the lay-offs. “Peter Cammarano is proving that he has the right priorities for Hoboken and that he understands that sacrificing public safety is the wrong choice.”
Cammarano said he is proud to receive the police officers’ endorsement. “On July 4, about 35,000 visitors are coming to Hoboken to watch the Hudson River fireworks show,” he said. “Cutting public safety personnel is reckless and foolish.”
Cammarano is dedicated to creating a safer and more secure Hoboken for all of our families and residents and Lombardi’s endorsement underscores this commitment to the City.
Former Councilman Richard DelBoccio
“As a life-long Hoboken resident, educator and City Council member, I have had the pleasure to meet many of you over the years and, hopefully, have been of assistance to you as a neighbor or public official.
As we approach the crucial June 9th municipal elections, I urge you all to support my friend and former City Council colleague Peter Cammarano for mayor, as well as his entire at-large council slate of Angel Alicea, Vincent Addeo and Raul Morales, II.
Over the past four years, Peter has shown professionalism and leadership on the City Council, rising to every occasion to separate politics from sound policy. Peter has demonstrated compassion and objectivity in facing the issues of the day. This was especially evident by his fulfilling the responsibility of a council member to introduce the municipal budget. His opponent, meanwhile, chose to abstain and allow state intervention of our fiscal matters.
Peter is not afraid to confront tough issues and reach fair conclusions. He will serve us well as mayor in a time of uncertainly on a local and national level.
Please join me and support Peter and his team on June 9th.
Richard Del Boccio“

Cammarano Announces Key Community Endorsements
“Hoboken mayoral candidate Peter Cammarano today announced the support of three key community leaders and former candidates in May’s mayoral and city council election.
At a City Hall news conference, former mayoral candidate Ryn Melberg and city council candidates Chris Carbine and Timothy Occhipinti announced their support of Cammarano, citing the need to restore fiscal responsibility and return control to the city.
“Ryn, Chris and Tim reflect all elements of our community and their input to my administration will be very helpful as we move forward,” said Cammarano. “This will be an inclusive administration and we need to hear all voices. They will play a crucial role in my administration as we move forward.”
Melberg, Carbine and Occhipinti and others will play leading roles in the transition process in regard to searching for a business administrator and identifying new technology to help usher Hoboken’s government into the 21st century.
They will also serve on a citizen committee in planning a long range budget as the city moves out from under from state control.
Today’s endorsement comes a day after Assemblyman Ruben Ramos, Jr. announced his support of Cammarano, citing his leadership ability and vision to move forward an inclusive and responsible platform.
Cammarano has also received support from major labor unions, as well as numerous other community leaders.”
