JERSEY CITY -- Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise endorsed Mayor Steve Fulop's re-election bid this afternoon, saying repeatedly during a ceremony outside the historic Brennan courthouse "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

DeGise, speaking to a crowd of about 60 with Fulop by his side, credited Fulop with putting Jersey City "on an upswing" and joked that Fulop "better not screw up my city."

JERSEY CITY -- In the first major endorsement of the 2017 Jersey City mayor's race, State Sen. and Union City Mayor Brian Stack is backing Mayor Steve Fulop, with a rally planned for outside Stack's office on Saturday afternoon.

Stack told The Jersey Journal he's endorsing Fulop, who is seeking a second term in November, because Fulop is an honest man who is easy to work with. Stack's legislative district includes parts of Jersey City.

"He's mayor with progressive ideals and it's refreshing to find that in Hudson County," Stack said.

JERSEY CITY -- Campaign donations from out-of-town donors are funding this year's race for Jersey City mayor, with more than 80 percent of recent contributions to the three mayoral candidates coming from outside of Jersey City.

Mayor Steve Fulop, who is seeking a second term in November, leads the pack with total donations in the last quarter of 2016 -- about $337,000, counting donations to his City Council team and to the Jersey City Democratic Committee. Fulop also comes out on top when it comes to out-of-town cash: 82 percent of his total haul, about $274,000, comes from donors who live outside of Jersey City.

Fulop setting a new course with re-election in mind: Political Insider

Time is not tangible but too much of it can have a subtle effect, other than aging, on people. There's a tendency to casually reflect too long on one's place in life. I suspect this was the case with Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop. While in the midst of a gubernatorial campaign, he took 10 days off for a delayed honeymoon. He returned with a message - his bid for governor was over.

Instead Fulop will seek re-election next year for the job he says he enjoys, mayor of what will more than likely become the largest city in the state during the next term in office. This means a big course direction for the administration. What is the post-dream plan of the Jersey City administration? It's simple - micro-manage city government. Wasn't that the plan during the first term in office? Yeah, but without having to impress everyone in the state, it's a bit like throwing the local operation into fourth gear.

Jersey City Gears Up for 2017 Mayor’s Race

OBSERVER - By

As recently as two months ago, there was speculation that Jersey City would need to elect a new mayor in 2017 due to current Mayor Steve Fulop’s then impending entrance to the New Jersey gubernatorial race. However, following Fulop’s surprise September 28 departure from that race—and his support of former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy for the spot—the landscape of the November 2017 municipal election changed. While Fulop has vowed he will run as an incumbent, a number of others are positioning themselves to challenge him.

So far, both Bill Matsikoudis and former Assemblyman Charles Mainor have announced that they will be facing off against Fulop in November. Additionally, current Jersey City Councilman Michael Yun told Observer that he may also enter the mix and attempt to unseat the sitting mayor.
