What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
Jersey City has really made a name for itself in the time I’ve lived here--especially downtown. But even with our growth, there is still a real small-town feel--everybody knows everybody. The events in the park--Six-Ward dinners, neighborhood festivals, movie nights--have strengthened communities.

What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
I’ve lived in Paulus Hook since 2004, at that time the only residential high rise in downtown, outside of Newport, was Portside Towers. So the number one difference from 2004 is the amount of high-rise living.

What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
Jersey City has changed tremendously since I was a kid.  It seems almost unbelievable now, but Downtown used to be a pretty rough area. Greenville, where I grew up, was a safe and thriving middle class neighborhood. Journal Square was once a bustling transportation hub surrounded by grand movie houses and high-end shopping.

What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
The sense of community that made me fall in love with downtown JC remains, but so many residents talk to me about their worries that it will be lost. Many lose sleep over Newark Ave turning into a second Hoboken; waterfront towers that are built to keep their residents inside them and outside of our neighborhoods; and the displacement of the Latino community.

What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
As the only candidate that is from Jersey City the answer is A LOT.  In the past 37 years there is little about Jersey City that hasn’t changed. More development, more parks, more people.  Jersey City wasn’t always a place people wanted to be and now it is arguably one of the best mid-sized cities in the country.  A lot has been accomplished.  That being said, with change and growth comes new challenges and over the next four years, my hope is to be elected as Councilman to help try to solve them.  For instance, I think we need to work alongside developers to get better give backs for our community. We need more schools especially in Downtown where overcrowding is becoming more of an issue. We also need to work alongside other local and statewide elected officials to demand the Port Authority actually service the needs of Jersey City, Harrison, and Newark. We need to work on pedestrian and street safety and implement a Vision Zero plan that will eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries.  It is also important to focus on basic quality of life issues and real change that we can effectuate on the local level.  We'll also need to work through the reval.

First up:

What are some of the changes you've seen in Jersey City in the time that you've lived here? What changes would you like to see in the next four years?
I moved to Downtown Jersey City in 2005, the day after I graduated from Montclair State University. My first apartment was in the Village. The walk down Newark Avenue has changed dramatically since then. When I moved here I almost exclusively met friends in the city on the weekends. Now, friends from the city come to meet me here and we hang out at any of the great places along Newark Avenue.

There will be several other gluten-free and definitely not gluten-free options available.
