Shortly after speaking at a Democratic event in Woodland Park on Tuesday, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop spoke to Hudson County View about the rumblings of a 2017 gubernatorial run, NJ Transit’s proposed nine percent fare hike and the federal corruption charges against U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). [fve]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwiLrPT0Dy4&feature=youtu.be [/fve]
When asked if he considered the event a precursor to a 2017 gubernatorial run, Fulop was dismissive of the notion, saying that he could not predict the future and was content to serve the people of Jersey City.
Fulop also spoke about how NJ Transitâ€™s proposed nine percent fare hike could impact Jersey City residents.
Finally, after noting earlier in the night that running against then-Congressman Bob Menendez in 2004 was â€œlife changing,â€ we asked Fulop for his take on Menendez being indicted on federal corruption charges.
