Dawn Zimmer Endorses Ravi Bhalla for NJ State Assembly Column C

An endorsement of Ravi Bhalla for NJ Assembly from Mayor Dawn Zimmer:

Dear Friends,

My name is Dawn Zimmer, Mayor of Hoboken. This coming Tuesday, June 7th are Democratic Primary and Democratic Committee elections throughout Hudson County. In the 33rd Legislative District, I am enthusiastically supporting Hoboken Councilman Ravi Bhalla for State Assembly in Column "C". I urge you to do the same.

Like me, Ravi is an independent idealogical Democrat, working to end the machine culture of patronage, ensure fiscal responsibility, and fight for strong public schools. With Ravi's help on the Hoboken City Council, we have improved City services, replaced political hires with professional and highly qualified directors and cut taxes by 10% over the past year while the rest of the state, including Jersey City and Hudson County keep increasing taxes.

Ravi to his credit also worked with me this year to introduce campaign finance reform legislation in Hoboken that would help end the culture of corruption in the Democratic Party.

I know that Ravi will work to bring these same reforms to Trenton. We need legislators at the state level who are willing to work with local government on issues like tax reform, campaign finance reform, improving educational achievement, and sustainable job growth.

We must change the way the Democratic Party operates here in Hudson County. I urge you to vote for Ravi Bhalla in Column "C" for Change.
