Mahwah PBA Local 143 backed Emerson Council President Gerald Falotico’s Assembly bid Monday.
“Because of his experience as the head of Mahwah’s collective bargaining unit and his law enforcement related interactions with the general public, Gerry truly understands issues, like the complexities of healthcare, facing not just police families, but all families in New Jersey,” Mahwah PBA president Bill Hunt said. “At a time when more and more police officers, as well as average residents, are watching their paychecks shrink and the security of their retirement benefits disappear, we need people like Gerry representing us in Trenton.”
Falotico was a police officer in Mahwah for 28 years. For 10 of those years, he was president of PBA Local 143
He’s running to ouse Assemblyman Bob Auth and Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi.
“It was an incredible honor to serve alongside my brother and sister officers in Mahwah for 28 years, and to represent their interests as PBA president,” Falotico said. “It is a similar honor to have won their confidence and their support as I run for Assembly.”
