Outgoing Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson Endorses Perez
Trenton’s incumbent Mayor Eric Jackson has formally endorsed businessman Paul Perez to become the next Capital City’s Mayor.
Jackson, who won his seat over Perez in Trenton’s 2014 Mayoral runoff election, decided not to run for a second term. On Monday, he thanked his former opponent for continuing to proactively serve Trenton during the past four years.
“Following the 2014 election, Paul continued his efforts to revitalize our community by educating youth, supporting seniors and matching families to resources through his non-profit, Partnerships for Trenton. He has earned my respect, as well as the solid support of so many of our citizens as demonstrated by the May 8th election results.” Jackson said.
“My successor must possess the honesty, strength, integrity, resilience and vision to work with our new Council and all community stakeholders in order to effectively tackle the issues our City faces. That person is Paul Perez. I ask Trenton voters to select Ballot position #1 and vote for Paul Perez on Tuesday, June 12th,” the Mayor concluded.
“I have come to know Eric Jackson and respect him personally and professionally. His endorsement is humbling and also signals his administration’s commitment for a smooth transition as we prepare to lead Trenton for the next four years,” Perez said.
But the question is does this endorsement help or hurt Perez..?
