West Ward Councilman Ronald C. Rice delivered a fiery speech to backers last night at the Spot in Newark where sentiment turned into pre-campaign slogan.
“It’s time,” was the Rice mantra.
Son of state Sen. Ronald L. Rice (D-28), the councilman is exploring a run against veteran incumbent U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10).
