Steve Fulop has won the endorsement of the New Jersey Working Families Alliance in his bid for a third term as mayor of Jersey City.
“Mayor Fulop has been leading the charge on the issues that are most critical to our fight for economic justice for his entire career and we are thrilled to once again endorse his campaign today,” said Sue Altman, the director of the NJWFA. “From standing up for high wages for working class residents to ensuring equitable treatment for the LGBTQ community to fighting back against climate change on the local level and so many other courageous stances, we know Mayor Fulop will continue to stand with us and with the working families of Jersey City just like he always has done.”
Fulop is the strong favorite to become the first Jersey City Mayor since Frank Hague to win three four-year terms. He faces Lewis Spears in the November 2 nonpartisan general election.
“Here in Jersey City we’re proud of our record of leading the way on so many important issues and setting an example for the rest of the state that progressive policy and responsible governance can work together, and we will continue to live up to those values every day,” Fulop said.
