Healy crowd honors former Jersey City Councilman

JERSEY CITY – Among the supporters of Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy tonight at Casino in the Park was Peter Zampella, former Jersey City councilman and former Hudson County freeholder.

The 90-year-old retired politician who now lives in Arizona received a warm welcome back to Jersey City from the Healy crowd. 

Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairman Mark Smith introduced him from the stage.

“It’s a close race so they brought in a powerhouse,” said Zampella’s daughter, Jeannine Zampella.

"I’m excited as hell about CD 5. We have encouraged Congressman [Steve] Israel to get involved in CD 5."
