JERSEY CITY -- The unlikely pairing of Mayor Steve Fulop and Councilman Rich Boggiano on this November's ballot has been scuttled, with Boggiano saying today he will seek re-election independent of any mayoral ticket.

Boggiano had been in talks with Fulop, who has been a frequent target of Boggiano's barbs since the two were elected to their current posts in 2013, to run on Fulop's ticket in the upcoming municipal race.

"I appreciate that Mayor Fulop asked me to run on his ticket," Boggiano said in a statement. "However, after careful consideration I have decided to remain the independent voice and will be seeking re-election as Ward C councilman." ... ont_join_fulop_slate.html
