“We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we received at the opening of our campaign headquarters. It is clear that the people of Jersey City are ready for change and are excited to be a part of our movement,” O’Dea said in a statement

The campaign headquarters, located at 1590 John F. Kennedy Blvd., will serve as a hub for Team O’Dea to convene with volunteers, organize events, and other community engagements.

“We are so grateful to everyone who came out to support us despite the rain. With your help, we will be able to bring about positive change for the people of Jersey City,” he added.

O’Dea is one of three declared candidates for the non-partisan November 4th, 2025 mayoral contest, with former Gov. Jim McGreevey and Council President Joyce Watterman also in the race as of now.

Ward E Councilman James Solomon, Hudson County Commissioner Jerry Walker (D-3), and former Board of Education President Mussab Ali are other potential candidates widely viewed to be in the mix.

Incumbent Steven Fulop is a declared Democratic candidate for governor, opting to run statewide next year instead of seeking a fourth term.
