LINDEN, NJ -- Hillside Council President Don DeAugustine has thrown his support behind Nick Scutari for Union County Democratic Chair.

“Senator Scutari is good for Hillside. He will fight for our cities and suburbs to unite us so that we all continue our singular mission--  electing Democrats in the fall,” DeAugustine said.

“Nick grew up with working class parents and put himself through college then went on to graduate school and law school. His profile in Trenton, fearless leadership in the face of right wing Republicans, roots in Union County, and hard work is why I support Nick,” concluded DeAugustine.
