Ambrossi enters race for Jersey City council seat

Patrick Ambrossi, an analyst for the Hudson County Division of Housing and Community Development and a Hudson County Young Democrats executive board member, will challenge incumbent Yousef Saleh in a November special election for the Jersey City Council.

Saleh was appointed in April to fill the Ward D council seat left vacant after Michael Yun died of complications related to the coronavirus.

The winner of The Heights-based seat in November will fill the remaining fourteen months of Yun’s term.

“Growing up in The Heights, I too have experienced many of the struggles facing our community. We can no longer wait and hang on to empty promises to improve our quality of life,” said Ambrossi. “The Heights is a community of residents who deserve functional, long term solutions, so their families can continue to thrive.”

The son of immigrants, Ambrossi serves as the founder and President of the Leonard Gordon Park Conservancy, advocating for the revitalization, renovation, and ongoing maintenance of the park.
