Davis predicts peace in 31st district

Bayonne mayor says cooler heads will prevail

BAYONNE – Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis says he expects Hudson County Democrats come together before the 2019 primary and avoid a battle that could put Assembly incumbents Nicholas Chiaravalloti (D-Bayonne) and Angela McKnight (D-Jersey City) on opposite tickets in the 31st legislative district.

“We are the economic engine of New Jersey when we are unified and work together,” Davis said.  “When we’re fractured, all it does is hurt us.”

Davis, recently re-elected to a four-year term by a wide margin, is a political ally of Chiaravalloti.  McKnight was initially backed for the Assembly by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

The mayor says that he expects “cooler heads to prevail” before the filing deadline next April.

“We’ll work it out,” said Davis.  “It’s about people.  Everyone needs to check their egos at the door.”
