Today, Mayor Jerramiah Healy announced Janet Chevres as the latest addition to his Council slate. A community activist, Chevres will be running in Ward C.
“In putting together a Council team that reflects our city’s tremendous diversity, I’m continuing to look for those who share my same motivation for both running for office and for governing – namely, always doing what’s best for the families, taxpayers and small businesses of Jersey City,” said Healy. “Janet Chevres fits this bill - because we share the same values of always putting Jersey City first.”
“After a century of no new municipal parks, now there are five new parks in different stages of development throughout Jersey City. I look forward to being a part of the Healy team to keeping the progress going,” said Chevres. “Together, we will always put our kids first. This is a diverse ticket, and I’ll work with Mayor Healy towards making this city an even safer place for our children to play and grow.”
Since 2011, Chevres has worked at JP Morgan Chase – where for the past seven years she’s served as a business analyst and reporting specialist. The mayor said Chevres’ business skills will be helpful.
An active member of the Parent Teacher Organization, Chevres served as PTO president of Middle School 7, Vice President of Public School 6 and Vice President of Dickinson High School.
For the past 20 years, she has been heavily involved in the Jersey City community, and played key roles with many non-profit organizations through the years, including: Boys & Girls Club of Jersey City, Puerto Rican Association Organization (P.A.C.O), Friends of Liberty State Park, St. Joseph’s Home, Action 21, Parish of the Resurrection Little League Baseball, Washington Park League, JPMorgan Chase’s Good Works Employee Volunteer Program, Jersey Cares, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Healy and Chevres also opened a campaign headquarters in Ward C today - located at 582 Summit Ave. Chevres joins previously announced council candidates, community activist Dan Levin, Ward F Committeeman Omar Perez, former Jersey City Schools Superintendent Charles Epps and Council President Peter Brennan.
