City Council President Jen Giattino the First Mayoral Candidate to File 360 Nominating Petitions
Hoboken City Council President and mayoral candidate Jen Giattino became the first
candidate to file nominating petitions with the Hoboken City Clerk today. She announced her
candidacy on June 27th shortly after Hoboken’s current Mayor Dawn Zimmer declared she would
not be running for re-election in November. Giattino submitted the 360 signed petitions that are
required in order for candidates to be placed on the ballot for the election in November.
“I am honored to receive so much support from across Hoboken for my candidacy.” said
Giattino. “This is such an important election for all of Hoboken and I am encouraged that so many
people share my vision for an agenda that addresses community needs, manages our explosive
growth and protects the quality of life we are so fortunate to enjoy.”
Giattino will continue to collect further signatures between now and the deadline of
September 5th for both her candidacy and for her City Council slate. She will be announcing her
City Council slate tomorrow July 28th at 12:30 pm at Church Square Park in Hoboken.
