Jersey City mayoral candidate Steve Fulop now has all but one of his city council candidates in place toward his 2013 bid to take charge of City Hall.

His slate includes Diane Coleman for Ward F Council; Candice Osborne for Ward E Council; Sean Connors for Ward D Council; Khemray “Chico” Ramchal for Ward B Council; Frank Gajewski for Ward A Council; Joyce Watterman for Council-At-Large; Daniel Rivera for Council-At-Large; and Rolando Lavarro for Council-At-Large.

“Our council candidates reflect the diversity of the city more than any other ticket in the history of the city,” Fulop said in a post on his website. “We have many new faces and a couple long time community leaders, but for the vast majority this will be their first run for office.

“My intent in assembling the ticket was to focus on bridge building and inclusiveness. It captures some of the best aspects of Jersey City with expertise ranging from budgets, to recreation, to public safety, to education, to community responsiveness. The bottom line is when we said we were going to do things differently and pick the best people for the long term prospects of the city and not necessarily the most politically known name in every case - we meant it!”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
