WE DO of Bergen County Endorses Esther Suarez for U.S. Attorney

Women Empowered Democratic Organization of Bergen County (WE DO) proudly endorses Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez for the state’s U.S. Attorney. If confirmed Ms. Suarez would become the first Latina United States Attorney from the state of New Jersey.

WE DO represents a women’s grassroots political organization in Bergen County who support women to run for office or be appointed to important governmental positions. We are a diverse and inclusive group of volunteers from all parts of Bergen County who believe women should have a greater voice in government.

Esther Suarez previously served in Bergen County as chief counsel and chief legal advisor to the County Executive, eight county departments, including the Bergen County Police Department, and all elected and appointed Constitutional Officers, including the Bergen County Sheriff, the Bergen County Prosecutor, the County Clerk and the County Surrogate.  She left Bergen County government when she was appointed as a New Jersey Superior Court Judge and within the last five years she was appointed to serve as Hudson County Prosecutor.

Ms. Suarez surpasses all the professional qualifications and experience to serve as U.S. Attorney for New Jersey.  There are too few women representing the law enforcement community, and Esther has the skills, experience and integrity to continue to move women forward in government.  A lot of us know Esther personally and are inspired by her work which is why we continue to support her career.

WE DO joins the Alliance for Latinx Leadership and Policy, the Hispanic National Bar Association, New Jersey Women Lawyers Association, LUPE PAC, LUPE Action, Latino American Democratic Association and the Hudson County Chiefs of Police Association who have all issued their support for Suarez.
