The Jersey Journal endorses Downtown Jersey City Councilman Steven Fulop for mayor.
There are four people who are asking the voters to elect them to the city's highest office. With Fulop, this newspaper believes the city has the best chance to use its superior inherent qualities — its geography, people and resources — to become one of the nation's prominent municipalities.
Fulop has the leadership and sound decision-making abilities to select the right path for Jersey City's journey through the 21st century. He has the vision and commitment to make this city a place that will sustain its residents and improve their lives and that of their children.
The smoke and mirrors employed by the current administration for the last eight and a half years have not allowed all of Jersey City to reach its potential. The city, and more important its people, deserve so much better.
