Paterson Arab American Civic Organization Endorses current Mayor Jeffery Jones for re-election to the City of Paterson 2014
At least three top members of the Paterson Arab American Civic Organization attended Mayor Jeffery Jones’ campaign head- quarters opening, to show their support. Vice President and Director of Public Relations, Khader “Ken” Abuassab, reiterated Jones’ words that all of us must come together and bring Paterson to what it should be. “We don’t want this man, Mr. Jones, to ever leave this office. He took us out of the deep hole which others left for him – that seventy- something million dollars that was put on his shoulders, and everybody knows he took that off of our shoulders and we should thank him. Thank you” Abuassab stated to the mayor at the opening. He continued that Jones has been working on a lot of different issues to bring Paterson together again, with all the 52 ethnic groups, “This would not happen if he leaves office.” Abuassab stated.
“We want to make sure he is still here the next four years, stand by him, fully, give him all your support. Who’s with Mayor Jones?!” Abuassab shouted. “We need him to stay in that office. We need him to finish the job. Anybody else would need 12 years, not four years”
When asked if that meant he endorsed Jones, Abuassab called out the name of his organization, the Arab American Civic Organization, and explained that they support Mayor Jeff Jones on his campaign to be re-elected for his position.
