Grogan, a Hoboken resident, served in City government from 1947-1965, but he was also an officer at several levels over the years for a union, International Union of Marine and Shipbuilding Workers of America (IUM-SWA). Some of those positions required elections and it has not been determined if this button was for a Hoboken election or union contest.
