One-on-One With Mayor Fulop - My9 New Jersey

One-on-One With Mayor Fulop

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Tamara meets up with Mayor Fulop to discuss his plans for Jersey City.  She starts by chatting about his inauguration which drew the biggest crowd Jersey City has ever seen bringing out people like Governor Christie, Senator Menendez and Cory Booker. So does the backing of these New Jersey power players mean that Fulop has high hopes to run for a bigger officer?  He said he doesn't really know what his plans are just yet, but he did say that the presence of these people mean that "they recognize the fact that Jersey City's the economic engine of the state of New Jersey and that we're very important for progress in the state." 

When the topic turned to curbing crime, the Mayor thinks he is definitely making progress.  He talked about joint task force type initiatives and over 110 people have been arrested in high crime areas of the city.  This has been made possible through "group round-ups" which the Mayor feels is very effective.  The way these round-ups work is that the city works with the Sheriff's office, not the County Prosecutor and they rely heavily on community feedback in those problem areas whether its drug activity or gun violence.  They do lengthy surveillance and a sting with plain-clothed officers and take care of the neighborhood.
