State Sen. John Girgenti (D-Hawthorne) is no push-over.  After it was reported last week, that there was speculation that Girgenti could face retirement in two years as Latinos eye his Senate seat.  Girgenti is a white man in a district where Latinos and African Americans outnumber whites.

“Any suggestion that the Passaic County Democratic Party does not stand fully in support of Senator Girgenti is ridiculous,” Passaic County Democratic Chairman Currie said.

The Passaic County Democratic Chairman  says that Girgenti is a lock on re-election, and went on to announce that Girgenti will also enjoy the support of Assemblywomen Nellie Pou (D-North Haledon) and Elease Evans (D-Paterson), as well as all seven Democratic Municipal chairs in the 35th district:  Anthony DeNova of North Haledon; Barbara O’Byrne of Totowa;Irene Brown of Glen Rock; Delores Sykes Williams and Rev.  James Kuykendall of Paterson; Jerry Volpe of Haledon, and Mayor Mohamed Khairullah of Prospect Park.
