JERSEY CITY – In the final voting hours of the Jersey City election Tuesday evening, mayoral hopeful Steve Fulop stood exactly where he said he needed to be in the last-minute push to get out the vote.
As evening commuters poured out of the path stations in downtown Jersey City, Fulop shook hands, exchanged high-fives and urged the residents to make a break for the polls before ending their day. The councilman greeted residents near the Grove Street Path Station as hundreds commuted back from work.
In the final hours before the polls closed, Fulop was feeling optimistic. And what’s more, he said, an evening surge from his base could be enough to tip the race in his favor.Read More >
JERSEY CITY - That idyllic stretch of bingo parlors and baseball diamonds called the Jersey City Heights showcased a battle of war wagons commanded by Mayor Jerry Healy on one side and challenger Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop on the other.
Fulop appeared at least visually to be fighting on even terms with the mayor, who lives in the Heights and raised his family here.
For every van emblazoned with Healy's and President Barack Obama's face, a contrasting SUV complete with mounted megaphone appeared, blaring Fulop slogans.

JERSEY CITY - A late burst of Republican cash to his opponent spells out what incumbent Mayor Jerry Healy has warned all along about his opponent.
"We represent the bulk of the working people, and we're fighting the same guys we fought in 1933," said the FDR Democrat, panning challenger Steve Fulop as a Republican turnkey to privatizing the school system.
"I know the Abbott School District has been sticking in the craw of Republicans in the ex-urbs," the mayor added before he ducked into a local firehouse in Ward B to thank poll workers.
His son works here as a firefighter, and on the mayor's command, the younger Healy yanked the garage door to throw sunlight on the polling place.Read More >
