JERSEY CITY — Three Filipino-Americans, Council President Rolando Lavarro, Bergenfield, N.J. Council President Arvin Amatorio and Bergenfield Councilman Buddy Deauna, led the Fil-Am contingent in the pre-election rally of Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez.

Venue was the Zeppelin Hall Beer Garden in the downtown area of Jersey City on Oct. 28, 2018.

Menendez, in a brief interview with this reporter, denied the accusations hurled at him in television advertisements of his opponent in the Republican Party.

“Those are lies. My opponent will say anything to gain political power,” the senator said.
