HUDSON COUNTY - State Sen. Nicholas Sacco (who also serves as mayor of North Bergen) and State Sen. Brian Stack (who is mayor of Union City) have been Democratic rivals for some time. But with the legislative primary coming up this Tuesday, they released a joint statement on Friday.

The statement read: “As many know, there has been a perception of political discord in North Hudson. While differences have existed, we both recognize the need to work together for our respective constituencies. Furthermore, it is also recognized that certain political forces perpetuate the politics of division. Bearing this in mind, we wish to make public that we both support and endorse the candidacies of each other and that we strongly disapprove of other candidates using our names in campaign literature in order to give a false sense of endorsement regarding their candidacies. Now is the time to put politics aside and continue to work for our respective constituencies.”

Poor Brian. You wanted to be king but now you're on Steve and Nick's leash. Maybe they'll scratch you behind the ear and tell you how important you are to help you pretend.

After they take you to the vet don't worry about the bits that get left behind, you don't need them now anyway. Truthfully you never knew what to do with them in the first place.
