Dear Jersey City residents,

As early voting begins in New Jersey this Saturday; I encourage residents to vote early. As a native of Jersey City, there is a very important upcoming election in Jersey City for mayor and city council.

Over the past eight years, Jersey City has seen tremendous progress and growth for working and middle class families under Mayor Steven Fulop.

The reasons I fully support Mayor Steven Fulop for re-election:

Pandemic Management: Jersey City was amongst the first in the country and State of New Jersey to put restrictions and curfews in place to keep residents safe. The city also provided relief and resources to residents and small businesses.

Health and Human Services: Under the leadership of Director Flanagan, the department has become a national leader with helping homeless residents, senior affairs, veteran outreach, and healthy food access.

LGBTQ Rights: Most LGBTQ Friendliest city in State of New Jersey, and leader on LGBTQ issues.

Public Safety: Diversity & Inclusion implementation on the police force.

Stable Taxes, Economic Development and Youth Development

Lastly, it’s important to understand Mayor Fulop needs the right team to continue the progress.

It’s crucial you elect Team Fulop on the city council:
Council President Joyce Watterman
Councilman-at-Large Daniel Rivera
Ward A Councilwoman Denise Ridley
Ward B Councilwoman Mira Printz Arey
Ward C Councilman Richard Boggiano
Ward D Councilman Yousef Saleh
Ward F Councilman Jermaine Robinson

Jake Hudnut to Ward E City Council
Amy Degise to Council-at-Large

  1. How long has Tom DeGise been county ex? Now Amy will be calling the shots. In NYC we are about to witness Nepotism with the new figurehead mayor elect. Curtis really is too radical. Mayor Fulop hosted a Senior luncheon to encourage us to vote ; when will we Seniors get to go to MOVIES at Newport? When will the JERSEY JOINTS play at the Loew’s at XMAS? These events are cancelled due to Covid? Mayor Healy distributed turkey’s for Thanksgiving. Can Mayor Fulip do anything 4 us 4 the Holidays??

  2. I called and needed help from resident response about a young man who’s living with a resident in my community disturbing the whole community with playing loud music from day to well over one in the morning even signed a petition with the people in my community and no one would help us . Till this day it’s still going on were this person stays is the boyfriend of the resident who lives in the building and is not on her least can someone please try to help us . You people want us to vote for you but will not help the residents when they need your help in the community in no kind of way
