I would like to take the time to thank the following individuals for their service to the City of Jersey City: Ward A Councilman Michael Sottolano, Ward B Councilman David Donnelly, Ward C Councilwoman Nidia Lopez, Ward D Councilman Bill Gaughan, Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop and Councilwoman Viola Richardson. Even though we may have not agreed on every issue, I believe you all did the best to serve Jersey City well. I know it wasn't an easy job but you guys stayed in it.
Out of the seven people, I would like to specially thank our new Mayor Elect Steven Fulop. For years, he has been planning his run and in the end he did very well. Even though I was apart of his team in the beginning and then switched to join Jerry Walker's Team doesn't mean I have no respect for him. I joined Jerry Walker's team because I felt he was the best choice for our city.
For the new council, I would like to congratulate you. I’m hoping you be your own independent voice and not a rubberstamp. Please be sure to put the residents concerns first over politics. All of you ran on Team Fulop's ticket except Yun and Boggiano so you guys all talked about reform, well I want to see it. Also I can't forget about Mayor Jerremiah Healy. I would like to also thank him for his years of service to the city. He has done this city well. From the gun buyback programs to bringing more businesses to our city to Moody's upgrading our city, Healy has always put residents first. Over the next four years, I will be carefully monitoring The Fulop Administration because residents deserve a world class city.
A Young Strong Voice for Jersey City
