DeGise wins landslide re-election

By David Wildstein, November 06 2019 12:28 am

Democrat Thomas DeGise won 83% of the vote in his bid for re-election to a sixth term, defeating 18-year-old Republican Kennith Gonzalez.

Last year, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop sought to oust DeGise from the Democratic organization line.  DeGise fought back and got his daughter, Amy, elected Hudson County Democratic Chair.

Sheriff Frank Schillari was re-elected with 84% against Adela Rohena, who lost the support of the Hudson County Republican organization after she made anti-gay comments at a Jersey City Council meeting.

In the race for Surrogate, Freeholder Tilo Rivas defeated Republican John Muniz with 82%.  The incumbent, Joseph Ryglicki, did not seek re-election.
