Union City Mayor Brian Stack, running unopposed, received 11,211 votes. That’s 2,210  votes more than he received in 2014, running unopposed. If he’s trying to make a statement with his massive voter-turnout operation, message received.

Stack’s entire city commissioner slate was unopposed.  Newcomer Wendy Grullon was elected to replace Tilo Rivas, who did not seek re-election to spend more time on his post as a Hudson County Freeholder.  She received 10,000 votes, running just slightly behind incumbent Celin Valdivia (10,020).

Commissioner Maryury Martinetti finished fourth with 9,915 votes, followed by Lucio Fernandez (9,895).

A pre-election rally two weeks ago drew over 3,000 people, including U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, Gov. Phil Murphy, and Senate President Steve Sweeney.

Stack, a State Senator, is a candidate for Hudson County Democratic Chairman in June.  The incumbent, former Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, is not seeking re-election.
