JERSEY CITY — When Chris Gadsden graduated from Snyder High School in 1992, he put a one-word blurb beneath his yearbook photo.

"Politics."

Twenty-four years later, that teenage dream of a life in the political world came true as Gadsden, 42, was sworn in as the new Ward B councilman tonight. The City Hall ceremony came 13 days after Gadsden's stunning win over incumbent John Hallanan in the Nov. 8 special council election.

There may be. But it's hard to talk to a handful of people and know what voter sentiment is. Nearly 12,000* people voted. The historic district has, what, 600 homes?

*EDIT: Sorry, that was in the prez race. 4,633 voted in Ward B council race.

Hallanan won a few of the voting districts in the new historic zone, some overwhelmingly.

Both John Hallanan and Chris Gadsen are decent people. They are well like in the community. But people in that area are upset that Historic Preservation was forced down their throats. As I mentioned earlier, the people who spoke in favor of Historic Preservation mostly lived outside the community. This does not look well for Fulop second term.

Chris Gadsden, a Lincoln High School vice principal, appears to have pulled off a major upset in the Ward B City Council race, with preliminary results from Hudson County showing Gadsden leading incumbent Councilman John Hallanan.

Meanwhile, voters citywide appear to have approved two public questions that would move municipal elections to the fall and implement a tax intended to fund parks and historic landmarks.
