About Ron Bautista
Ron is a Hoboken High School alum (Class of 2004), and while he has a full-time job as a marketing executive, he has dedicated his life to public service. He gets his inspiration to run for office from his 4-year-old daughter and his 69-year-old mother living in Hoboken; people like them are the most vulnerable to unsafe streets, air pollution, and the inequalities perpetuated by our politicians. Our County Commissioners have acted in secrecy for as long as we can remember. Instead of solutions, they give excuses. They ignore you and only respond to their big donors and political party bosses, while Ron doesn’t take any money from real estate developers or political bosses. That’s why Ron Bautista is running for County Commissioner, so our government can serve everyday people, not the politicians.
For years he has been a champion for safer streets, keeping government accountable, and addressing homelessness. Ron has served as a member of the Hoboken Vision Zero Task Force, the Port Authority Bus Terminal Advisory Council, and the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy. See his platform here.
“Ron has that kind of problem solving mind and the ingenuity and creativity to lead us through these crises and find the necessary solutions to the challenges we will face.” – Elizabeth Ndoye, Hoboken Democratic Committeeperson
“Ron’s commitment to everything from safer streets (we have so many seniors and young families!) to climate justice is exactly what Hoboken needs.” – Samantha Tringali, Hoboken Resident
Bautista’s Code of Political Ethics
There’s too much at stake in our local government, and that’s why we cannot let decisions be made only by those privileged with the back of political party bosses. As everyday people, we need to be at the decision-making table, we need a voice and a vote that represents the best interest of all our neighbors. This code of political ethics is Ron’s first commitment to our community, a set of values that neighbors, public servants, friends, and family will expect him to follow and that he’s happy to be accountable for.
Ron Bautista pledges to work so everyday people will be treated fairly and respectfully, and have equal access to opportunities and resources.
At the end of the day we’re all neighbors, which means we’ve all decided to be part of one community. We are all in this together and when we look out for one another we all grow. That’s why Ron pledges to have people’s lives always come first in government decisions, starting with our most vulnerable neighbors.
