Mayor Felix Roque was joined by State Sen. and North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco, State Assembly Speaker and Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairman Vincent Prieto and others to endorse Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, a former 33rd District Assemblywoman, will run for a seat on the Hudson County Freeholder Board against incumbent Freeholder Jose Munoz.
“Since she was first elected to the West New York Board of Commissioners 12 years ago and throughout her tenure as Public Safety Commissioner, Caridad Rodriguez has been a dedicated public servant. She’s an energetic and consistent individual who always advocates for initiatives to move our town forward and make it a better place to live,” said Mayor Felix Roque.
Rodriguez said that until this point she thought her political career was coming to an end, but said she was proud and honored to be supported by these public officials for District 1 Freeholder seat. If elected she will represent West New York, Guttenberg and two thirds of Weehawken. -- Al Sullivan
