Tom DeGise has picked his daughter to run for Hudson County Democratic Chair.
Jersey City School Board of Education member Amy DeGise announced tonight that she will challenge Union City mayor Brian Stack in the June election.
“Hudson County is the most diverse, dynamic and exciting place in New Jersey and it’s time for our Democratic Party to reflect the energy and progressive values that our residents live every day,” said Amy DeGise. “I’m running to lead our county party into a unified, strong future that is open to everyone who cares about their community and wants to see progress in our county. I’m incredibly excited to begin this journey and look forward to working as hard as I can for each and every vote and for the future of our Hudson County Democratic Organization.”
The incumbent, former Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, is not seeking re-election in order to concentrate on his new job as chief executive officer of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.
