Jersey City Council Members Ridley & Prinz-Arey Endorse Rob Menendez for Re-Election to Congress 

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Today, Jersey City Councilwomen Denise Ridley and Mira Prinz-Arey announced their endorsement of Rep. Rob Menendez for re-election to Congress. 

The councilwomen join a broad range of elected officials who represent Jersey City that have previously endorsed Rep. Menendez, including State Senator Raj Mukerji, State Senator Angela McKnight, Assemblyman Will Sampson, Assemblywoman Barbara McCann Stamato, Assemblywoman Jessica Ramirez, County Commissioner Bill O’Dea, County Commissioner Yriada Aponte-Lipski, County Commissioner Jerry Walker, County Commissioner Anthony Romano, and Jersey City Councilman Danny Rivera.

“In just one term, Rob has proven that he is dedicated to the residents of the 8th District,” said Councilwoman Denise Ridley. “Whether it was bringing more federal funding to local housing authorities to assist with housing disparities or supporting higher education by providing additional finances to Hudson County Community College, our Congressman has shown up. He understands the needs of our district and takes his experiences as a resident with him to DC. I’m proud of the work the Congressman has done and am proud that he is not only our congressional representative, but also our neighbor in Ward A. I am asking our Jersey City residents to support our Congressman, neighbor, and friend by sending Rob back to the Hill to represent us.”

“Rob’s track record of tangible results, commitment to our communities, and responsiveness to residents have earned him a second term in Washington,” said Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey. “Since taking office, his efforts have delivered millions in federal funding to transform our district and improve quality of life – including environmental justice grants, Safe Streets and Roads for All grants, or addressing housing disparities. Rob also knows the importance of collaboration and proactively partners with our local leaders to make change. We are deeply impressed by the team of civil servants he has assembled to make the mission of his Congressional Office possible. For these reasons and so many more, I am proud to endorse my colleague and friend Rob Menendez. I know our Jersey City residents are devoted to uplifting our neighborhoods and that’s why they will join me in supporting Rob’s re-election to serve us in Congress.”

“I am grateful for the support of my friends Councilwomen Denise Riley and Mira Prinz-Arey – dedicated public servants and effective advocates for Jersey City residents,” said Rep. Rob Menendez. “With their support, I look forward to our continued collaboration and work to improve the lives of our friends and neighbors in Jersey City.”
