Sacco staying lowkey on JC mayor’s race

TRENTON – North Hudson Mayor/state Senator Nick Sacco (D-32) isn’t yet ready to dive into the Healy versus Fulop fray in the lead-up to next year’s Jersey City mayor’s race.

At least that’s his public position.

“Do they really care what someone whose district no longer includes Jersey City has to say about the Jersey City mayor’s race?” said Sacco as he gaveled to a close his Senate Transportation Committee hearing.

Political observers regard Sacco as the face of North Hudson County Democratic Organization power.

But he insisted he’s not ready to endorse. 

"I’m an undertaker by trade, so when I bury somebody, they don’t come back."
