Agenda item #1

Creating Affordable Housing Opportunities

This means more inclusionary housing for Jersey City residents as well as affordable home ownership programs and assistants for our hard-working families. My plan is to work with colleagues to create meaningful legislation to ensure a fair share of affordable housing is set aside for Jersey City residents and to also identify city-owned properties that can be developed or rehabbed to bring affordable homeownership to our residents.

Public Safety is extremely important. Not only is the goal to build better relationships with police and residents, I will also work with city departments and contractors to ensure better lighting, pedestrian safety, and other quality of the issues that impedes our daily public safety.

Agenda item #4

Budget Reform

It is important for a city like Jersey City to review and pass a fiscally responsible budget in the beginning of the year. My plan is to work with the city’s administration; including business administrator and city council members to have an approved annual budget Jan 1 rather than six months into the year.

Agenda item #5
