NJ PBA is Citing Guy’s Extensive Experience and Dedication to Public Safety
Democratic candidate for Hudson County Executive Craig Guy is announcing that his campaign has been endorsed by the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association. The prominent law enforcement union which is made up of 33,000 members is citing Guy’s extensive experience in government and law enforcement, as well as his dedication to public safety and progress.
“The State PBA knows that Craig Guy will serve as Hudson County Executive with honor and focus on his constituents' needs. We look forward to continuing to work with Craig in this new role,” said Pat Colligan, PBA State President. “There are few elected officials who will enter office with Craig’s experience as both a police officer and government administrator. Those skills, combined with his obvious care for the men and women of law enforcement in Hudson County makes him uniquely qualified for the job of County Executive.”
Craig Guy served as an officer with the Jersey City Police Department for more than two decades prior to taking on his current position as Chief of Staff to County Executive Tom DeGise. He retired from law enforcement with the rank of Lieutenant, and has remained deeply invested in standing up for the law enforcement community, and ensuring that public safety remains a top priority in County Government.
“The NJ State PBA’s endorsement is a tremendous honor and I am grateful to Pat Colligan, his executive board and the entire membership for their support,” said Craig Guy. “I look forward to collaborating with the PBA to make sure that we always support the men and women in Hudson County law enforcement who sacrificing so much to keep us safe. We must continue to fight to make sure that our police departments have the funding, training, and other resources that they need to do their jobs effectively and keep our communities safe.”
Craig Guy has previously been endorsed by leading Democratic elected officials like Governor Phil Murphy, Senator Bob Menendez, Senator Cory Booker, and all 12 of Hudson County’s Mayors, as well as leadership from the statewide and Hudson County Fraternal Order of Police and the Hudson County Building Trades.
