Serendipity struck on Central Ave! 😉
On the campaign trail we gate-crashed Councilman Yun’s community meeting, where he very graciously allowed me to introduce myself to his distinguished audience, and we exchanged ideas about innovative strategies to improve the Jersey City Public School funding crisis without wasting resident taxpayers money.
(I told Councilman Yun that I’m a big fan of the ordinance he championed with #ChrisGadsden to share PILOT money with public schools. I hope those ideas can be implemented, because our schools certainly need it.)

Empowering JCPS Parent Groups

From words to action. I don’t need to win an election to help parent groups connect and facilitate their daily collaboration with JCPS. This work will continue, because we know it’s important to stay connected, learn from each other and make it easier for others.

JCPS Parent groups partnering to make their schools strong and successful! Parent leaders representing PS#16, PS#5, PS#37, PS#3 & MS#4 engaged in a working session to come up with a comprehensive plan to facilitate the PTA/district cooperation and benefit ALL schools. I’ve always said that no administrator or public official is going to be more invested in the welfare of our students than we are. It’s a privilege to work with these guys in helping our schools.
