JERSEY CITY - The Hudson County Chamber of Commerce (HCCC) has announced the receipt of a $100,000 gift by philanthropist and former Congressman Frank J. Guarini, in recognition of the 10th anniversary of the chamber’s rebranding effort. It comes on the eve of Legends 10, the annual event at Liberty Science Center honoring outstanding members of Hudson County’s business community. The unprecedented donation was followed by additional gifts to 39 non-profit organizations who are members of the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce.

“It is most important that our business community supports the good work of the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce and harnesses the energy and dedication of our non-profit community. Our future depends on working together with a common purpose. Together, through the chamber, we can assure a successful and prosperous tomorrow.” Guarini stated.

The 129-year-old Hudson County Chamber of Commerce presently has a diversified membership of more than 600 businesses located throughout the County. It supports 50 programs annually and is ranked in the top 25 Chambers in the State of New Jersey by NJBiz.

Maria Nieves, president and CEO of the HCCC, recognized Congressman Guarini as a treasured leader, resource, and contributor to the energy and growth of business in Hudson County and the state:

“Frank Guarini’s timely support provides critical and immediate funding to a diverse and growing community of non-profit organizations in Jersey City which contribute greatly to elevating the city’s quality of life for all.”

I’m not a bit surprised that Frank Guarini would leave some money to the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce. They have 39 “non-profit” organizations as part of the Chamber. Since when does a non-profit have anything to do with the Chamber of Commerce when their mission statements have NOTHING in common? The dirty little secret is that the majority of these “non-profits” are shell corporations for Democrat political largesse. That’s why Frank donated that much of the shakedown money he accepted over the years. Not to mention the tax write off he will claim. Once a crooked Democrat, always a crooked Democrat. That’s Frank Guarini’s legacy.
