I am delighted to announce my candidacy for Jersey City Council to represent Ward A. As a longtime resident and dedicated educator in Jersey City for 28 years, I know the opportunities and challenges facing southern families. from the city. I am running to represent the will of the people, not the wishes of a select few.
I will be an independent voice on council as I fight for what matters most to my Jersey City neighbors, and more specifically, my constituents in Ward A. I am not afraid to stand up to City Hall and stand up for you. , as I did recently as a member of the group that fought to repeal the unfair water tax and called on city council to return the money owed to us.
If I am elected, I will give priority to our young people by expanding the possibilities for vocational training and recreation in the city. I will fight for the improvement of infrastructure so that our streets are not flooded with every storm. I will advocate for sensible upgrades to provide more reliable transit options and the widening of Route 440 before adding thousands of new units to our neighborhood.
I also recognize that our seniors, our children and our families need to feel safe in their neighborhood. I will tackle crime and violence with innovative community programs, skills training and employment opportunities, family support, social services and high quality affordable housing to build safe and thriving neighborhoods. As a City Councilor, I will work at the local level to unite stakeholders to improve the quality of life in Jersey City.
These problems only scratch the surface of why I think it is important to have an independent and progressive representative to defend the interests of the residents of district A. Lack of transparency from the town hall, reduction in funding for recreation, increase in violent crime, crumbling infrastructure and longtime residents priced out of their homes have all been factors in my decision to run for office at this time.
As an educator, mentor, coach, former union leader, parent of three and wife of a Jersey City firefighter, I know every hardworking family deserves a representative who will stand up for them. I will bring a strong advocacy case for public education, public safety and improved infrastructure to City Hall. I hope I can count on your support in the days leading up to election day, Tuesday November 2.
