Jersey City Education Association endorses Mayor Healy

A strong vote of confidence in Mayor Healy from the 4,000 member strong Jersey City Education Association today with JCEA President Ron Greco saying Healy is “motivated by what’s best for Jersey City.” Bill Murawski, president of AFSCME Local 2262, called the mayor “a man of his word who understands Jersey City’s working families.”

Healy said he was honored by the support:

Everything I do as mayor is motivated by what’s best for Jersey City and the future of all the families who live here,” he said in the statement. “Nothing is more important than looking out for Jersey City’s children."

This announcement certainly hits the ball back into Councilman Steve Fulop's court. It would appear that his influence with those associated with schools may run a mile deep but perhaps only three feet wide even with his spate of backing the winning candidates in recent victories for Board of Education. Time will tell on this but this certainly is a big day for the Healy campaign.

OK back to cartoons.
