Lawmakers in the 33rd district will announce their formally announce their re-election campaigns Friday.
State Sen. Brian Stack (D-Union City) and his running mates, Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro (D-Hoboken) and Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-Jersey City), will announce their bids for new terms in the safely Democratic district at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Union City Friday afternoon.
“Although the past year has been a difficult one for all, I wanted to come together with Annette, Raj and our constituents to share our accomplishments and our goals for what will, hopefully, be our next term serving the wonderful people of the 33rd Legislative District,” Stack said. “As a young boy, I knew my calling was to serve the public. It’s has been my absolute honor to serve as a state senator.”
There’s little chance of Republicans winning the Hudson County-based district. The GOP last held a seat there in 2003, when Assemblyman Rafael Fraguela defected to the Republican Party before returning to the Democratic fold eight months later.
Stack won his seat in the next election.
“We have a responsibility to shape policy in New Jersey in a way that will have a positive impact on the lives of our constituents and to make Hudson County and the State of New Jersey a better place to live,” said Stack. “I am hopeful that the people of the 33rd Legislative District see the merit of our accomplishments and send us back to Trenton to continue what we have started.”
