Thanks Al. Your description of DeFusco's supporters ' expectations that he will pad their pockets at residents and taxpayers' expense with overdevelopment and by encouraging more pukefests is spot on. Hopefully Councilman DeFusco will be as honest about whose interests he will represent as you were.

The bigger question is once they rescinded the original endorsement why didn't they support Munoz ?

JERSEY CITY -- Bike JC, a nonprofit organization that promotes bike-friendly streets, is hosting their annual Ward Tour, which will conclude with a party at the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza. Registration is open for the Jersey City Ward Tour & Festival, slated for June 4. The 15-mile tour, which is in its eighth year, will touch all six wards of Jersey City, and organizers are expecting about 2,000 riders to participate. The Tour is presented in partnership with Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council, and the Office of Cultural Affairs. The tour starts on a Sunday morning at 11 a.m. on Montgomery Street and Grove Street, next to City Hall (280 Grove St.). Protected by rolling street closures implemented by Jersey City police, riders will make a clockwise loop around the city, at a manageable pace (10 mph at the front) with several rest breaks, and finish on the Plaza between 1 and 1:30 p.m. The following Finish Line Festival will continue all afternoon until 5 p.m., and will feature live music, food and drink, an expo with community/nonprofit organizations, and more. Bike JC is also setting up discounts for riders at cafés and restaurants surrounding the City Hall start. The Sirelo Entertainment community drum circle will again warm up and send off the riders at the start (all are welcome to participate with their own percussion instruments). Registration for the tour is required and is free at bikejc.org, with a $5 suggested donation to Bike JC. Riders must be age 12 or older, and must wear helmets. Younger children may be carried securely on an adult’s bike. This year the tour is rain or shine. “We couldn’t do it without the city’s help,” said Bike JC President Patrick Conlon. “Of course, that’s also true of our larger goals: Creating a network of protected bike lanes around the city, and enabling more, and better, and safer cycling here.”
