The New Jersey Young Democrats have fully endorsed Thomas Bushnauskas as the Second Ward Candidate for Hawthorne.

The New Jersey Young Democrats is “the official youth arm of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee. From ages 14-36, our members are making a difference at all levels of government. From grassroots activists to government staffers to elected officials the NJ Young Dems are working to effect progressive change in the great State of New Jersey.” (

Bushnauskas, who has been a very active Passaic County Young Democrat since the age of eighteen, said he is “very grateful to be recognized by Passaic County Young Democrats as well as the New Jersey Young Democrats. To be endorsed by my peers for the work we have done, and we continue to do, is an absolute honor. I look forward to working with the Young Democrats on both the local level and the State level as we continue to keep doing the excellent work we have been doing. The Young Democrats of the county and of the State are our future leaders and I am honored to be amongst them.”
