"Speech-a-thon" is the correct phrase -- No Q&A - Just Fulop talking about how wonderful his administration is.

Yes, you can tell election time is coming around -- Can't remember the last time Fulop made some town halls.

JERSEY CITY -- Mayor Steve Fulop pledged two major projects for the Heights yesterday in his third state of the city address.

Speaking in the School 28 auditorium, Fulop said the city will build a municipal parking garage and a new police station, both to be located on Central Avenue. The garage would be for shoppers and residents of the Heights, where residents have complained for years about a shortage of parking spaces.

State of Mayor Fulop speeches a bonus for re-election effort | Political Insider

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 7:07 AM 

By Agustin C. Torres

It was another State of the City speech. Having sat through more than 40 years of such speeches in different municipalities the last thing I wanted to do is go to another. Yet this one has some back story, mainly that not long ago Mayor Steve Fulop decided he's not running for governor but for re-election.

There was some curiosity about how he would approach this declaration of how things are going in the city and what would be the public response. What it revealed to this writer is that, after months and months of running an undeclared statewide campaign, a local race seems pretty easy. The mayor just can't throw his election machine into third and second gear. The battery is still fully charged and he and his team are driving a classic Ford GT in cruise control waiting for the go-kart race to start.

We have continued to lead the state in construction starts, with nearly 10,000 units currently


under construction, and another 17,000 units approved. For the first time we can say that development is not exclusive to one neighborhood. Whether you live on the West Side or in the Heights - you have seen the outcome of the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of investment that we have brought in to our city.


Above all, it is important to us that this progress is inclusive, and we have worked hard to ensure that there are opportunities for all residents, in all wards. We have built more affordable housing during the past three years than any prior administration in the city's history.


This year, we will continue to build on this progress, with an upcoming Ocean Avenue project in partnership with the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency that will add 20 veteran-priority units, with units reserved specifically for homeless veterans.

This is Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop's first state of the city address of 2017, as prepared for delivery.

Good evening, and welcome to our fourth State of the City together.

I want to thank the public officials from the state and the county who have joined us tonight; members of the clergy; members of the court; the Jersey City Council who have been partners in everything we do; fellow members of my administration; and, most importantly, the residents of this great city.

In July of 2013, I stood in front of City Hall and took the oath of office as the 49th mayor of Jersey City. It was one of the proudest moments of my life, and something I remain thankful for each and every day. As your new mayor, I promised I would work to make you proud, and that is what we have tried to do as an administration for the past three and a half years.

Fulop to address a ward 'in crisis' in state of the city speech

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on February 06, 2017 at 6:14 PM, updated February 06, 2017 at 6:20 PM

Those are the words of the Rev. Mona Fitch-Elliott, the pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church who begged the City Council at a special Saturday night meeting last month to bring aid to the inner-city neighborhoods that comprise most of Ward F.

"It's been in a crisis for a while and we can't just act like business as usual," Fitch-Elliott said. "We cannot wait any longer."

Few of those in power in Jersey City, even those whose job is to put a rosy spin on any news development, would argue that Ward F, and much of the southern half of the city, struggles with crime, poverty and drugs. Fulop himself used the word crisis when discussing Ward F during an interview earlier today with The Jersey Journal.

Maybe I am missing something here - but how does doing this in 6 places waste tax money? I would think the cost is nominal, if any. I'm more perplexed by multiple/inconsistent promises being spewed forth and not upheld.


I would assume the costs would be mostly from transportation and x number of police on It at about $100 or so per hr.

It's the (yawn) State of the City season: Political Insider

February 4, 2017 at 7:07 AM - By Agustin C. Torres

It's the stand-up season for mayors - better known as the State of the (whatever size municipality) Address - when elected politicians list all the wonderful things they have done for local taxpayers to make their hometown a Shangri-La.

The big speech in Hudson County is in Jersey City where Mayor Steve Fulop has decided to turn his one-man show into a mini-series by performing his self-examining monologue in all five wards on different evenings - all starting at 6:30 p.m.

There is no more boring time spent than sitting and listening to these spiels. The audience is usually made up of municipal workers, political backers, hacks, public gadflies, administration critics, groupies I presume, and journalists and bloggers. It's like listening to someone read from an election campaign flier and having blind devotees applauding like it's an audience at NYC's 92nd Street Y trying to justify the cost of the tickets.

I would like to know if Fulop plans to seek Menendez senate seat if things really go bad for him. He was not an Obama favorite... you would have to think the Kushner might help him out of the DOJ jam for a couple of swing votes.

Is he going to explain why he's gambling with our tax dollars by publicly stating Jersey City is a sanctuary city?

It's an election year, remember? And, as T-Bird observed, he's showing his face all over town and we're paying for it instead of his campaign fund. Now does it make sense?
