In a web video released this afternoon, County Executive Tom DeGise announced his candidacy for re-election next year. DeGise, who will be seeking his fourth full term in the Democratic Primary in June 2015, becomes the only announced candidate in the race.
The video highlights many of the County Executive’s accomplishments, including the expansion and improvement of the county park system and efforts to preserve open space, the economic development initiatives financed through the Hudson County Improvement Authority, the growth and success of the Hudson County Community College and Schools of Technology and most importantly the strong new ethics reforms he initiated shortly after taking office.
"The job isn’t finished and there is work to be done," says DeGise in the video. "That's why I am running for County Executive again next year."
