Stack might support Fulop for Sires’ seat

Although Fulop has already endorsed the 2018 reelection of Menendez for U.S. Senate, those close to the newly re-elected mayor say he may be seeking to move on to another office.

Some close to Fulop said he was stunned when a judge declared a mistrial after Menendez was charged with corruption.

Supporters of Fulop have been riding his coattails in hope of his ascending the political ladder to higher office. Many were crushed when he abandoned his aspirations to become governor, and began to view him as a replacement for Menendez if Menendez was convicted.

The mistrial dashed these followers’ hopes and possibly even Fulop’s.

Although Fulop may well keep control of the City Council – depending on the outcome of the runoff on Dec. 5 – some people are already leaving City Hall.

Fulop said he will not seek a third term. So this already suggests that people associated with his administration may be seeking more long term opportunities elsewhere, while they can.

This also may indicate that Fulop might not even serve out his second term. Some observers believe Fulop will run in the June Democratic primary seeking the House of Representatives seat currently occupied by Rep. Albio Sires.

A primary win in Hudson County almost assures Fulop a victory next November, at which point, he would have to step down as mayor. The city council would select an acting mayor – most likely Council President Rolando Lavarro – who would serve until a special election is held in November 2019.

This would become a free for all, and would likely see a host of mayoral candidates such as Lavarro and Freeholder Bill O’Dea, as well as possible candidates such as council members Daniel Rivera and Joyce Watterman.

At that point, state Sen. Sandra Cunningham might consider fulfilling the legacy of her deceased husband, Glenn Cunningham, and seek to become mayor herself.

November Politico - Sires - I'm Definitely Running



Article is from the Hudson Reporter, Al Sullivan lol.


The speculation for the run was also noted in the Politico article link - so...;

Last week, a local political operative speculated that Sires' seat might be attractive to Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, who just won a landslide reelection as mayor but has seen his ambitions to grander office sidelined.
