We said goodbye today to one of Jersey City’s best police officers. Our deepest condolences to the family of Lt Christopher Robateau. I want to also publicly thank my fellow mayors of our neighbor municipalities of Hoboken, Bayonne, North Bergen and Union City for having their police officers patrol Jersey City streets today so that our JC officers can attend today’s funeral. RIP Lt Christopher Robateau. Photo by @jbrophoto

I welcomed the new governor to Jersey City last night. We will do our best to support him as when he succeeds then Jersey City succeeds and New Jersey succeeds. On behalf of Jersey City wishing him the best over the next 4+ years. Photo by @jbrophoto
We broke ground today on a new development site in Ward “F” at 136 Summit Ave. This one is in an area that needs investment and this got off the ground working hand in hand with the local neighborhood
This is what I posted on my twitter. I figured I’d share this one here as well.
I go get breakfast at Wonder Bagel and greeted by quite a headline in the @jerseyjournal - yes I’m a supporter of legalization but I have zero interest in Jersey City having a proliferation around marijuana in a way that isn’t thoughtful. We won’t be NYC’s drug dealer cont. We will get ahead of the change in Trenton to amend zoning to detail that our zoning laws don’t permit any activity today (grow, retail sales, etc) so we dont have any lawsuits once Trenton passes legislation. Then once we see how the economics and law benefits Jersey City we will work with the community to amend back to where we will permit activity. I want residents to control the entire process and we won’t be caught flat footed by any changes to Trenton. We will be protected so that we chart our own course in Jersey City

R.I.P Former Governor Brendan Byrne. A great example of a true public servant. When I first was elected mayor, I was so excited to meet him. Photo by @reenarose
Thank you to all the residents for your patience yesterday as we managed the storm. Crews were out till the early hours of the morning today getting streets ready for residents to travel to work. We will continue today clearing bus stops, cross walks, and improving pedestrian accessibility. Thanks again to the residents and of course the great work done by the men and women of our Department of Public Works. Photo by @jbrophoto
It’s a difficult storm for sure but the team is out there trying our best to hold ground during this part of the storm and once the snow lightens up we will make some big progress. Thanks to all the great workers of the city that are fighting for the residents since early today and thanks to the residents for your patience and cooperation.
We are leaving the fire as JCFD did a great job. Reliable Recycling is and has been a bad neighbor and they just earned themselves a $16,000 fine on top of a 60 day shut down. A headache we didn’t need today - back to snow removal
