Boggiano can unite people
The recent municipal election in Jersey City has given the current administration a clear mandate to govern for the next four years. Without doubt, the 2017 election represented a significant vote of confidence (by the people) for the incumbent's administration. A decisive win at the polls, however, should not equate to the mayor being given carte blanche. A partisan council negates a fundamental principle of government; specifically, checks and balances.
Run-off elections for seats on the city's council will take place on Dec. 5. We firmly believe that Richard Boggiano, Councilman, Ward C, should be (re-) elected to another four-year term.
Richard Boggiano is a trusted, independent voice on the city's council who is fully capable of uniting all the people. Rich is the "Voice of the People!" He is a 40-year resident of Jersey City. "Ritchie" has worked arduously for the benefit -- and betterment -- of Jersey City. He has served out city as a police officer for 37 years. He has demonstrated his deep-rooted, civic minded spirit as President of the Hilltop Neighborhood Association. And, readers, he continues to serve our city as an endearing, independent voice on our city's council.
Richie only has one interest, and that is to serve the people of our fine city. Rich Boggiano has proven himself to be a superb representative on the city's council. Truthfully speaking, we need Ritchie's sagacious, independent voice to continue -- to endure -- within the council's chamber.
Richard Boggiano is the right person to get the job done. Why not give him another four years?
Albert Cupo and John Di Genio, Jersey City
