Gov. Phil Murphy approved State Senator Brian P. Stack (D-Union City) for re-election in the 33rd constituency and praised State Senator Nicholas Sack (D-North Bergen), who announced today that he would not seek re-election and return. The re-election after the re-election of the district clashed the two giants of Hudson County in possible democratic primaries against each other.
“In the Senate, Brian led the fight to take extensive action to prevent evictions and emergency rent assistance to families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic – legislation I proudly signed last August in Union City,” said Murphy. “As mayor, Brian has identified himself as one of the most responsive and efficient civil servants in the country – providing comprehensive services to voters, handing out turkeys and gifts to families in need of the holidays, and addressing quality of life issues ranging from garbage. self-pickup to potholes. That’s why the residents of Union City re-elected him again and again with overwhelming support. “
Murphy declined to take part in the race on Wednesday, waiting for Saka to announce his resignation.
“Nick Saka has honorably served the people of Hudson County for decades, including for the past 28 years as a state senator,” Murphy said. “While working in the legislature, Senator Saka helped pass a law to expand the Urban Entrepreneurship Program (UEZ), contributing to the economic development of urban areas and bringing much-needed investment to communities such as North Bergen. He also supported legislation to expand the use of DNA analysis in criminal cases, giving law enforcement a crucial tool for detecting crime.
