Newark while paying more and they just recently upped it further is part time, meaning they can have another job or outside employment.

Jersey City residents deserve a strong full time Council that can focus on the business of the City and that get paid accordingly.


I agree with you completely, but does this increase in pay mean the council members with multiple public positions will resign from one of their other public positions? Will they truly put in more work into being a council member? Not saying they should put in twice as much time on twice as much of a salary, they were underpaid for their work, but I really despise the fact that people can hold multiple public positions in New Jersey, and part of the aim of this salary increase should put an end to it. Holding a separate private sector job or running a business is far less of an issue and common with locally elected officials around the country.

How absurd! Let's look to the kleptocracy that is Newark to justify raising council salaries.

I don't know but you certainly won't get full time attention for what they currently make.

Will these council members actually treat their jobs in Jersey City as being full time, like they do in Newark, or will they continue to have multiple jobs and just enjoy the extra money? Some council members have had as many as three different public positions at the same time and I don't see them quitting two of them just because the Jersey City council job is now "full time".

Jersey City council pay would nearly double under new plan

JERSEY CITY — City Council salaries would nearly double under a long-discussed plan that could go before council members next week.

The proposal, distributed to council members on Tuesday, would hike base council pay from $35,298 to $65,298. The council president would get a pay boost to $68,354, up from $39,351. The new salaries would be effective Aug. 1.
