Fulop, Matsikoudis go head-to-head for first time in mayor's race

Mayor Steve Fulop argued that voters should give him a second term in office next month -- and his sole challenger, attorney Bill Matsikoudis, made the case for change -- on the New Jersey City University campus Monday night.

The two men were featured guests at an event hosted by activist group Jersey City Together and billed as its "fall action." The roughly 90-minute meeting was not a traditional mayoral debate or forum, but the two candidates were each given a few minutes to offer in detail their plans to improve public safety, education and housing.

Hard to tell with certainty from that video, but it does look like a daytons, but most likely it is a white gold Daytona. The stainless steel Daytona with a black dial only comes with a black bezel. The bezel of the watch in the video matches the case and bracelet, which is in keeping with a white gold Daytona.

So basically, Fulop is running unopposed. I guess that means that nobody thinks they can beat him. Very unusual.

Jersey City voters to have just two choices in mayor's race

JERSEY CITY -- This November's mayoral race will be a two-man contest, with just Mayor Steve Fulop and attorney Bill Matsikoudis facing off for the city's top job.

Today was the final day for would-be candidates in the city's Nov 7 mayoral race to file qualifying petitions to get their names on the ballot. The 4 p.m. deadline passed without a third candidate stepping forward.

This is the first time there have been only two mayoral candidates since 1973, when Paul Jordan and Thomas Gangemi Jr. went head to head.

Jersey City cop raises cash for Fulop following promotion

A Jersey City police officer helped organize a big fundraiser for Mayor Steve Fulop last night, less than two months after being promoted to detective.

Ray Regalado, 47, also gave $5,000 to Fulop's council slate on June 29, two days after he attended a major Latinos-for-Fulop fundraiser at Liberty Prime Steakhouse. Reached by phone, Regalado told The Jersey Journal his mid-July promotion "had absolutely nothing to do with" his support of Fulop

"I didn't even know I was getting promoted," Regalado said. "It caught me by surprise."

“Regalado, a 22-year veteran of the police force, was one of 25 cops promoted to detective in July. Only one other reported giving to Fulop's re-election campaign (Keith Jackson, $500).”

Mo's *Hypocracy* statement about Yun is Soo Stupid & Lame that it makes me glad to live elsewhere, where I don't have to suffer this foolishness in a community activist or Ward candidate !!!

The Ultimate Idiocy however is Jennifer Morrill's, as she is Jersey City's WebMaster, therefore blaming herself.

JERSEY CITY -- With just over six months until November's city election, Mayor Steve Fulop continues to best his challengers' fundraising efforts, with Fulop and his five council candidates collecting $154,803 in the first three months of the year.

The amount is more than twice what Bill Matsikoudis, the former corporation counsel, raised since Jan. 1 for himself and Rick Johnson, Matsikoudis' Ward A council candidate. Matsikoudis' team collected $58,017 in the first quarter of 2017, according to campaign finance reports made public today.

Boggiano won't join Fulop slate for re-election bid

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on April 05, 2017 at 8:23 PM, updated April 06, 2017 at 9:26 AM

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."

Can two Jersey City politicians who have sparred for four years share a ticket without driving each other crazy?

Sources tell The Jersey Journal that an "Odd Couple" pairing may be in the works for the Nov. 7 city election, with Councilman Rich Boggiano in talks to join Mayor Steve Fulop's council slate. The mayoralty and all nine council seats are up for grabs in the fall.

The potential partnership would represent a sharp turn for Boggiano, who has built his political brand largely by opposing major Fulop initiatives, and Fulop, whose council allies have shown near-unanimous fealty to Fulop since his election as mayor four years ago.

Jersey City mayoral race is no contest: Political Insider

Posted on March 25, 2017

By Agustin C. Torres

The Jersey City election for mayor is over. Under the present circumstances, the administration of Mayor Steve Fulop will return to power following the November race. There's no "change" on the horizon. It's all as simple as that. Only outside intervention (of a nonpolitical nature) has the capability of changing the inevitable.

Some folks within the Democratic Party say my declaration - that it's over before it begins - is just an attempt at stirring the pot for some reaction by Fulop critics, potential and declared candidates, and gadflies.

Nope, I'm just stating the obvious. In fact, what opposition exists would have been better off promoting Fulop for governor - thus forcing him to run in the primary. Had he won, the mayor more than likely would be out of the city by the end of the year. Had he lost, Fulop would have been perceived as vulnerable and someone seeking a consolation prize. And even then any opponent's success would be questionable.

JC mayoral election 8 months away: Political Insider

Posted on March 11, 2017 at 7:07 AM

THE JERSEY JOURNAL - By Agustin C. Torres

As one Jersey City mayoral candidate has reminded me, we're only eight months away from the Jersey City municipal election and there seems to be no pre-fight hype. Heavyweight challengers ain't on the card, and there's little "hate-the-incumbent-because ..." material that is sticking to the wall.

All this means is that we can expect an amplification of hysteria, finger-pointing and self-promotion from announced and yet-to-surface candidates for mayor and the City Council. Any noise will at least allow for headlines and folks like yours truly to poke the bears in government caves and excite the torch- and pitchfork-bearers on Grove Street.

This is the first year in this century that city residents will vote for their local leaders in November, and you would expect that a general election that is also a gubernatorial race will bring big crowds to voting booths. I have my doubts.

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.

Outside cash fueling Jersey City mayor's race

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on January 26, 2017 at 2:36 PM, updated January 26, 2017 at 3:23 PM

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.
