Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis and his running mates, the five incumbents of the city council, submitted over 4,700 petitions for nomination this afternoon, their campaign announced.

“I am deeply grateful to every single person who has signed a petition for my team,” Davis said in a statement.
“Our official campaign slogan on the ballot says it all — ‘I Love Bayonne,’ and I know that everyone who calls Bayonne home also shares that sentiment and that the city is excited to work together with us to continue building a brighter future for our community.”
The Davis Team includes Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski, Councilman at-Large Juan Perez, First Ward Councilman Tom Cotter, Second Ward Councilman Sal Gullace and Third Ward Councilman Gary La Pelusa.
“We are looking forward to continuing the progress that has been made in revitalizing Broadway, developing MOTBY and creating new tax revenue for the city,” added Nadrowski. “Team Davis is the only choice to continue this progress in our city.”
The Davis team has previously touted the administration’s economic development plans that include $2.5 billion in new development and $10 million in new annual tax revenue, officials said.
Meanwhile, former Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell, Davis’ main adversary in the May 8th mayoral contest, and his slate have repeatedly blasted the Davis administration for continuing to give out tax breaks to developers.
Today was the filing deadline in the Peninsula City and Clerk Bob Sloan could not immediately be reached to see if any independent candidates for mayor or council had submitted their petitions.
