It's all about money: contracts and patronage. This is the fuel that makes the HCDO run. The more money you can spend the more power you have.

This is a continuation of the fight between Menendez and the late Glen Cunningham over the control of the county politics. Glen and Tom both ran for mayor, Glen won. Then Glen went to control the county politics as many mayors do in Hudson County. Menendez was in control and gave the Hudson County Executive seat to Tom DeGise to get back at Glen. JC mayors have not wanted that control until now. The only way Fulop can have that control is through Brian Stack who has been the power broker of Hudson County for some time.

Fulop, Stack, Bhalla, Roque call for change in county leadership
A whole year ahead of the primary to select candidates for the 2019 Hudson County Executive election, a number of prominent elected officials publicly called for a change of leadership.

“Today, we stand with State Senator Brian P. Stack, Mayor Steven M. Fulop, Mayor Felix Roque, and Mayor Ravinder Bhalla, as we collectively seek change in the leadership of Hudson County government,” said a statement released Thursday and signed by Assemblywoman Angela V. McKnight, Jersey City freeholders Bill O’Dea and Joel Torres, Union City Freeholder Tilo Rivas, County Clerk E. Junior Maldonado, County Register Diane Coleman, and Jersey City Council members Joyce Watterman, Daniel Rivera, Denise Ridley and Jermaine Robinson.

The big question is: Who do these officials want to replace Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise? Do any of them plan to run, or do they have another candidate in mind?
