As the most diverse city in America, Jersey City’s public servants hold a special responsibility to build an inclusive, equitable city. Each day, I am proud to partner with advocates and activists to take another step toward that reality. In the last four years, we’ve:
Drafted legislation, with community leaders and Councilwoman Denise Ridley, to establish a Civilian Complaint Review Board that would ensure accountability and independent investigation of misconduct claims made by civilians about Jersey City’s Police Department.
Partnered with Hudson Pride and community leaders to pass a law mandating gender neutral bathrooms to create safe spaces for transgender, non-binary, and gender conforming Jersey City residents.
Joining with immigrant rights advocates to oppose the Hudson County Democratic machine’s decision to renew their immigrant detention contract with ICE.
