“With the leadership of Councilman Doyle and Councilwoman Jabbour, Hoboken has become an even better place to live and raise a family. As a mom, there’s nothing more important than keeping my kids safe,” Khanna said in a statement.
“I have been very impressed with the progress of the Vision Zero pedestrian safety program that has added curb extensions, raised intersections and more throughout our city.”
She also credited them for helping get construction moving at the 7th and Jackson Street park, the Northwest Park, the Southwest Park, and 800 Monroe St.
Furthermore, Khanna referred to Jabbour as “a close friend of mine” and that her and Doyle have a track record of getting things done, as well as welcoming the addition of Joe Quintero – who is Colombian – to the team to add further diversity to the council.
“I’m thrilled to support Councilman Jim Doyle, Councilwoman Emily Jabbour, and first-time candidate Joe Quintero this election cycle, and I hope you’ll join me in voting for them, as well as the Hoboken School Board slate of Aileen McGuirk, Tom Kluepfel, and Malani Cademartori (2-3-4),” she concluded.
The non-partisan Jersey City municipal elections are on November 2nd, with early voting available between October 23rd and October 31st.
