Downtown Jersey City Councilman Steve Fulop went up today with his fifth television commercial, a direct salvo at Mayor Jerry Healy outside the diner where Healy sat in a diner booth with disgraced developer Solomon Dwek.
Crossing the street, Fulop looks into the camera and asks the viewer if he or she knows why the streets appear the way they do and why property taxes rise.
It's because the mayor cuts deals with developers in places like the luncheonette, Fulop says.
"It's where the FBI shot that hidden video of the mayor," Fulop says. "This is not the city government any of us deserve. ...I won't be a perfect mayor, but I'll never embarrass you or deceive you because I'll only answer to you."
Joshua Henne, spokesman for the Healy campaign, retaliated in a statement.
“Steve Fulop’s spent this entire campaign lying to the people of Jersey City, and this self-serving commercial is just more of the same," Henne said. "Fulop refused to release e-mails showing him steering six-figure contracts to his top contributors – in one case even though they were rated lower and cost more than others. Pay-to-play isn’t only a betrayal of the public trust, it's also illegal and costs taxpayers money. Fulop should climb out of the gutter and answer for his inappropriate actions that are more about him getting ahead than serving the people.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
