Assemblyman Raj Mukherji ruled out a run for Jersey City’s mayorship in 2021 on Tuesday.
“Serving in the Assembly on Brian Stack’s ticket and under Speaker Coughlin has been the privilege of a lifetime, and that’s the only job I’m thinking about,” Muhkerji said.
A Jersey City resident, Mukherji has served in the Assembly since 2014 and was the city’s deputy mayor in 2013 and 2014.
He’s served as chairman of the Jersey City Housing Authority since 2008.
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop has yet to announce a bid for a third term, but he’s still raising money for a run.
In July, Fulop reported having $949,921 in his campaign account. He raised $256,853 during the second quarter of 2019.
