Mayoral candidate Peter Cammarano has received so many endorsements from all corners of Hoboken that I cannot keep up. See one from the Karasick’s here – and Michael Cricco and the Hoboken Fire Department after the break.
Community leader Ira Karasick endorses Cammarano:
“Hoboken is especially in need of a steady hand with solid professional judgment”
Ira Karasick and his father, decorated World War II veteran, Bernie Karasick have endorsed Peter Cammarano for mayor of Hoboken. After closely observing the race, Ira Karasick released the following statement:
“I have now looked at Peter and Dawn very carefully and am convinced that Peter would provide the leadership that Hoboken needs. In particular, Hoboken is especially in need of a steady hand with solid professional judgment, an understanding of and connections to the county and state governments, without being the tool of outsiders, and with a heavy infusion of common sense. It’s not a time for
uncharted diversions and personal agendas, as typified by the Lenz/Mason duet. Forceful calm is required.”
Bernie Karasick, a current resident Hoboken, was the Grand Marshal of the Memorial Day Parade a few years ago. Both father and son publicly endorsed Peter after this weekend’s celebration. Karasick states, “My abiding fondness for Hoboken tells me that in the current crisis times; steady, solid, unassuming competent leadership is needed. Peter Cammarano is best prepared — by training, temperament and integrity — to meet the needs of Hoboken”.

Fire Officers Association support Cammarano
The Hoboken Fire Officers Association Local 1076 and Hoboken Fire Fighters Local 1078 today endorsed Councilman Peter Cammarano for Mayor and Angel Alicea, Vincent Addeo and Raul Morales, II, for City Council at-large in the Tuesday, June 9th election.
“Peter Cammarano and his team have demonstrated their support to ensuring that Hoboken remains one of the safest communities in New Jersey,” said Anton Peskens, president of Local 1076 at a news conference on the steps of City Hall.
“It is my honor and privilege to endorse the Cammarano team for their commitment to the Department and to the public safety of the residents of Hoboken,” said Peskens. “Peter has shown great leadership on the City Council and has pledged to work with us to maintain and improve services throughout the community.”
“Public safety is the number one quality of life issue in our community and the men and women of our fire department have a time-honored tradition of putting their lives on the line every day to protect our residents,” Cammarano said. “I am honored to receive this endorsement and thank every member for their professionalism, bravery and loyalty.”
The Fire Officers and Fire Fighters endorsement comes less than a week after the Hoboken Police Benevolent Association announced their support of Cammarano and his City Council team. “Hoboken is a safe community thanks to its dedicated fire and police departments and all of their employees,” Cammarano said. “We need to maintain staffing, training and equipment to allow these individuals to continue to perform their duties in the highest manner.”
Former Councilman Cricco backs Cammarano
Michael Cricco, who served on the Hoboken City Council from 1995 to 2007, said:
“It is an honor that I write you to join me this Tuesday, June 9th to elect Peter Cammarano as our new Mayor and Angel Alicea, Vinny Addeo and Raul Morales, II for City Council.
Peter will provide Hoboken with decisive leadership during this crucial period of local and national uncertainty. He has demonstrated his ability to rise above politics and concentrate on prudent municipal policy.
In my many years as your representative on the City Council I witnessed government in crisis and learned that we need to take into consideration the interests of all before making informed decisions.
Peter has that ability and that is why I am supporting him for Mayor. Please join me on Tuesday, June 9th, and vote for Peter Cammarano for Mayor and his Council team, Angel Alicea, Vinny Addeo and Raul Morales, II.”
