TRENTON — Governor Phil Murphy today endorsed Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh for re-election, encouraging voters to support the Mayor in the May 10 municipal election.

«Since taking office, Mayor Sayegh has led the City of Paterson with integrity and purpose. He promoted economic development by creating good-paying jobs, supporting small businesses, encouraging tourism through Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park,  and restoring the historic Hinchliffe Stadium, among other achievements.

«During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Sayegh was a strong partner in keeping the people of Paterson safe and healthy. He broadened access to testing, set up community vaccination sites at houses of worship, and communicated vital public health information clearly to residents. Paterson is one of the most highly-vaccinated cities in New Jersey in no small part due to the Mayor’s relentless efforts.

«Andre knows that Paterson’s best days are ahead and shares my vision for a safe, affordable, and family-friendly city that serves all its residents. I encourage the voters of Paterson to re-elect Mayor Sayegh on May 10 and keep moving the city forward.»
