Jen Giattino personifies service to others and that's what we need."

"I met Jen Giattino many years ago as I was walking along with my then three young boys. Jen stopped me to introduce herself as she had three boys younger than mine. A fun, random Hoboken moment. I realized over the years that this was so typical for Jen. She is friendly, thoughtful, fearless and always interested in ways to connect the community.
"I believe it’s these same traits that have served her well on the City Council. She has remained true to her grassroots style approach in advocating for all residents in Hoboken. If you stand next to Jen for more than five minutes that is perfectly clear…..people stop to chat, honk and wave as they pass and the phone dings nonstop. Not only is she a true Ward leader but has earned a well-deserved reputation throughout Hoboken for answering the call no matter where you live. She does not stop until your issue is resolved or she has connected you with the person who can help.
"Jen Giattino, a strong reform leader, has proven herself again and again to be a true advocate for her 6th Ward constituents and all Hoboken residents. I hope you will join me in supporting “Jen again” so she can continue her hard work the community we all love!"
