As a Jersey City resident and voter, I was pleased with the decision of Ward E Councilman Steve Fulop announcing that he will introduce an ordinance at the next City Council meeting that will place a referendum on November’s ballot that will allow voters to give their preference for the date of school elections.
As everyone in our city knows, Mr. Fulop supported the past two board of education elections which led to the majority in the current board. It was so easy to let the current board members decide to keep the election on April or to move it to November with a very simple vote, especially if they have the majority.
Mr. Fulop chose to let the Jersey City residents and voters decide what they want to do.
I would like to thank you personally because you set an example of powering the voters and residents. I know you believe like many of us that if we all work together we can make a big difference in our city’s future.
