Legislators say time for DeGise to go

Assembly Majority Whip Raj Mukherji (D-Jersey City) and his running mate, Assemblywoman Annette Chapparo (D-Hoboken) have signed on to the move to find a new Hudson County Executive.

“County Executive Tom DeGise enjoys a distinguished and admirable record of public service, but it’s time for a change,” Mukherhi and Chapparo said in a statement released this afternoon. “We join Mayor and Senator Stack and Mayors Fulop, Bhalla, and Roque in seeking to usher in a new era of leadership in New Jersey’s most densely populated county, which has the potential to be the economic engine of the region.”

DeGise said today that he will seek re-election despite the call from a group of key Democrats to retire when his term is up next year.
