Connors, a Jersey City police detective, announced his candidacy via his Facebook page at the end of July.

“I usually do not ask people for assistance but I am seeking help from friends and supporters. I have taken out the petition to run for Council at Large in our November Election,” Connors wrote.

“If you see the petition, could you please consider signing it to allow me to become a candidate. Thank you very much for any consideration! One of my biggest loves is our city. In my eyes, there isnt [sic] a better place on earth! My passion goes from the Greenville Section to the Heights Section,” he continued.

Connors, also a former board of education trustee, sought the Ward D council seat in 2013 but was bested by Michael Yun.

Currently, Rolando Lavarro, Joyce Watterman and Daniel Rivera occupy the three at-large council seats in Jersey City.

Also challenging for those spots on the council are Esther Wintner, Esmeralda Trinidad and Dr. Michael Winds: who are all running on mayoral challenger Bill Matsikoudis’ ticket.

The Jersey City municipal elections are on November 7th.
