I am the only candidate in Ward E who refuses to take donations from Jersey City real estate developers.
Jersey City should be an equitable city for all. To accomplish that goal, politicians must stand up to real estate developers. Jersey City must demand that developers construct infrastructure for a liveable city and housing for an affordable city.
Because of my independence from developers, I have accomplished:
Granted ZERO tax breaks for developers in the four years compared to 43 such tax breaks to real estate developers in four years prior.
Uncovered a broken system of tenant protections with a months-long investigation, leading to aggressive enforcement action against bad landlords.
Fought against Jersey City’s Inclusionary Zoning Law, which was called “deeply flawed,” by NJ's top affordable housing advocates.
