Menendez grew up in Union City and now lives in Hoboken. He faces State Sen. Tom Kean Jr. in the Nov. 7 U.S. Senate election.
The ribbon-cutting was headed up by Hoboken Mayor David Roberts, the Hoboken City Council, local North Hudson officials, and Rob Menendez Jr., who has been steadily working from Hoboken on his father's campaign.
"This election is about restoring faith and hope in our government, and to change the direction this country can go in with your support," said Menendez Jr.
"[The younger Menendez] is someone who went to school in Hoboken, has many friends there, and blends right in with the new face of Hoboken; it's like being an ambassador," said Maurice Fitzgibbons, freeholder and former Democratic chairman of Hoboken. "He's been at the headquarters every day working alongside councilmen Campos and Ramos, and getting a lot of people registered to vote."
While the senator's main headquarters is in New Brunswick, this new headquarters will allow him to work closer to home.
"It's been great to talk to the people about the issues and what affects their lives, and what they want to see change in the future," said Menendez Jr.
As far as his own future in the world of politics, it's something that could be under consideration, but is still a while off.
"I still have to finish college and maybe go to law school," said Menendez Jr.
Other guests at Monday's event included keynote speaker Sen. Frank Launtenberg, and Menendez's fellow running mates on Column B, Albio Sires for the 13th Congressional District, and Willie Flood for Hudson County Register.
"As you know, I'm the other guy on the ticket," said Sires. "We are working on an important election; this election [will determine] the balance of the senate, and the fate of the country."
Sires is currently a state assemblyman, as well as the mayor of West New York. Flood is councilwoman-at-large for Jersey City.
"I am proud to be on this ticket, I am proud of representing you, and you will never be disappointed in my representing you," said Flood.
Other politicos in attendance included Assemblyman and Union City Mayor Brian Stack, and Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner.
"We don't want to be the country that loses young people and loses face with the world at large, which is what will happen if we elect Trust Fund Kean" said Lautenberg. "You must tell everyone to go out and vote on Nov. 7 for Bob Menendez and Albio Sires, and pray to God that the America we see on Nov. 8 is a different America."
