Democrat Craig Guy is announcing that he has been endorsed by the Hudson County Black Caucus in the race for County Executive. Black Caucus leaders are citing Guy’s long career in public service and his commitment to prioritizing diversity and racial justice in county government.

“I am so honored to receive the endorsement of the Hudson County Black Caucus led by Assemblywoman McKnight, and I pledge to work closely with her and all members to advocate for the issues that are most critical for all Hudson County residents,” said Craig Guy. “I am proud to have served in county government working with Tom DeGise, where our cabinet was over 50% women, and 50% of those were women of color. I’m committed to growing these numbers,and to championing racial justice in government, as well as in our schools, police departments, and throughout Hudson County. I look forward to continuing to partner with Assemblywoman McKnight and the entire Black Caucus to get this done.”
