I writing this post just as a Thank You Jersey City. Four years ago today, was Election Day in Jersey City for mayor and Im so grateful that the residents gave me the opportunity to serve in the city I love. We certainly haven't been perfect but we put everything we have into moving the city forward. Four years moves fast and I am forever thankful for the trust you placed in me. Sincerely - Steven
Yesterday, I had the privilege of swearing in a new class of Jersey City Firefighters. Our administration has invested in expanding the Fire Department to the largest it has been in decades because I know the work these firefighters do is crucial to keeping our residents safe. I am 100% committed to providing the resources to make sure that we continue to have the best Fire Department in New Jersey. This is a picture from when I swore in the class president yesterday - Collette Ellerman. Her hand is on the Bible as I read the oath of office. Photo by @jbrophoto
Keeping Jersey City clean needs to be a partnership with the community. Neither the city nor the community can do it by itself. A big thank you to everyone who helped with this great community initiative. A special thank you to the leadership and organizing committee. Next year we will expand it again to be even bigger!
Jersey City Weekly Update - we continue to invest in public safety as we hired another class of firefighters bringing the Jersey City FD to the largest numbers it has been in decades. Another important part of this is that we are doing it without raising municipal taxes.
As I got married a year ago, I realize that a good marriage is very much about compromise whenever possible - Jaclyn is from Rhode Island born and raised - her father will despise this post. Nevertheless for my fellow Giants fans she has seen the light
Had a blast at the Jersey City Senior Citizen Prom tonight with my date - the wonderful and amazing Jaclyn Fulop. We had 250 of our most important residents attended the prom organized by Angela McKnight and the senior citizen focused non profit Angela Cares.
Genius Gala last night. We raised at the event more than $2.7 million for Liberty Science Center to further this great asset in Jersey City. We want LSC to continue the important mission of inspiring young children to follow a career in science.
to last summer at the farmers' market in Arlington Park, one of several new markets we helped start in the city.
Today, there are nine farmers' markets across the city, with one market open every day of the week during the season. Not only is this providing access to healthy, local fruits and vegetables, but these markets create positive spaces for the community to come together.
This is really sad. While I'm happy the JCPD is being more and more effective it is sad that so many young people have easier and easier access to ILLEGAL guns. It is a major problem in cities across the country. We have expanded social services, prisoner re-entry programs, recreation programs, and are always looking for more partners in the community. It still feels like we are swimming upstream on this national problem. Data pretty much through April.
