Jersey City Ward C council candidate Tom Zuppa launches his campaign website earlier today, outlining his position on issues such as quality of life, public transportation, and affordability.
“I have walked every inch of Ward C, block by block, listening to neighbors and learning what’s on their minds as they make this community their home,” Zuppa said in a statement.
“This understanding has shaped my vision for representing Ward C’s needs within Jersey City and the solutions I’ll bring forward to positively impact residents’ lives. If elected, my priority will be addressing the priorities of those I serve.”
On his website, he commits to building and executing a long-term public transit infrastructure plan, rehabilitate Journal Square and its iconic landmarks into community spaces, identify housing and resources for neighbors currently without homes to assist them in their time of need, investing in children’s future by funding public schools, and
supporting local businesses to help them thrive in a post-pandemic world if elected.
Zuppa is a fourth generation Jersey City resident, a former Hudson County assistant prosecutor, and current associate at Chasan Lamparello Mallon & Cappuzzo, PC.
He also led all council challengers running against Mayor Steven Fulop’s slate when it came to first quarter fundraising this year, reporting $43,332 cash on hand.
Zuppa, who was expected to compete in the Journal Square race since last year, is in a three-day dance for the Ward C council race, challenging incumbent Rich Boggiano – who is running with Fulop – and fellow independent Kevin Bing.
The non-partisan Jersey City municipal elections are on November 2nd.
