This article was first reported by the New Jersey Globe
Three prominent Hudson County mayors have publicly endorsed former Gov. James E. McGreevey for the mayoral position in Jersey City for the 2025 elections. Mayors Jimmy Davis of Bayonne, Albio Sires of West New York, and Richard Turner have expressed their support, joining Union City Mayor/State Sen. Brian P. Stack in this endorsement.
The mayors emphasized the importance of a leader who can effectively guide Jersey City, New Jersey’s second-largest city, through its challenges and ensure it remains a place for working families. They believe McGreevey is well-suited for this role.
Steve Fulop, the current three-term mayor of Jersey City, has announced he will not be running for re-election and has expressed intentions to run for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2025.
McGreevey, who was elected governor 22 years ago, has a history of public service, including roles as an assemblyman, state senator, and mayor of Woodbridge. He has been a resident of Jersey City for over a decade and has roots in the city, with his grandfather having served as a police officer there.
Post his tenure as governor, McGreevey has been involved in various community and rehabilitation initiatives. He currently heads the New Jersey Reentry Corporation, a non-profit that supports individuals reintegrating into society post-incarceration.
McGreevey is anticipated to announce his candidacy for the mayoral position and has been actively campaigning. Additionally, he is set to launch the Jack and Ronnie McGreevey Foundation, aimed at serving communities in Jersey City and Hudson County.
Other potential candidates for the 2025 Jersey City mayoral elections have been identified, including Hudson County Commissioners Bill O’Dea and Jerry Walker, City Council members, and former Board of Education President Mussab Ali.
