BAYONNE – Mayor-elect Jimmy Davis announced the selection of Joe DeMarco as transition team chairman on Monday, June 16, less than a week after Davis’s upset victory over Mayor Mark Smith in their June 10 runoff.

“Joe has the requisite experience, leadership skills, and knowledge to lead this effort,” said Davis. “He has my full faith and confidence, and he will jump start the transition process.”

“It’s an honor to be chosen to lead Mayor-elect Davis’ transition team,” said DeMarco, who serves as West New York business administrator, a post he’s held for three years. “Our number one priority is to spend the next two weeks transitioning Bayonne’s government, so that a Davis administration can be prepared to govern on day one.”

DeMarco, a Jersey City native, received his jurist doctor from the Fordham University School of Law, B.A. from Boston College, and graduated from Saint Peter’s Prep in Jersey City. DeMarco served a term on the Bernardsville municipal council from 2009 to 2012.

I am happy to see them all go.

The departing City Council are just as responsible for a "divided' city as is the Former Mayor.

If any one of the former council ever run for office they will never be elected.

The vote's that any one of them ever received were for the former Mayor and not for them.(coat tails votes).

In a City where over 52% or 16,000 of voters boo them out.

Now lets talk about the rest of the residents 40,000 or so who did not like the Former Mayor or the team who were not able to vote.The street message was get The former Mayor out.

From the teenager to the Senior Citizen,whole families from block to block from up town to mid-town and downtown did not like the Former Mayor nor the team.

And what The Former Mayor represented.

I did what I could to could ouster them...............And it worked. Bye
