fiscal responsibility

Upgrades

This week in Jersey City, we continue to champion the idea that if we manage our city efficiently and effectively, government can work, and as we have seen, it can work well. We have succeeded in keeping municipal taxes flat for the past three years and have received our third consecutive credit upgrade, all while hiring over 200 police officers, putting $6 million dollars into our city park system, and investing in affordable housing citywide. Jersey City is proof that we can maintain both a forward-looking approach to fiscal planning and a strong commitment to providing important services for our residents.
