Ragheb was the field director of Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis’ 2018 re-election campaign, and serves as an aide to Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalloti (D-Bayonne).
DeGise announced that Felix Henriquez, a commissioner of the North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority, will serve a vice chair. Kearny Mayor Al Santos is the recording secretary and West New York Commissioner Gabriel Rodriguez is the corresponding secretary. The new treasurer is Craig Guy, the chief of staff to Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise.
The new county chair says that a slate of second vice chairs will be coming at a later date.
“The work of rebuilding our county party and bringing all Hudson County Democrats together to support Senator Bob Menendez and fight for progressive values starts now, and I could not be more excited to have such a great team with me to make that happen,” said DeGise. “I would like to once again thank the committee members for their trust in my leadership and everyone who supported my campaign. I pledge to continue working hard to live up to that trust and to once again make the HCDO the statewide force it should be.”
