I’m really proud to welcome His Holiness Coptic Pope Tawadros II to #JerseyCity this week. This will be the first visit since the 1990s. Jersey City has one of the largest Coptic Christian communities in the #USA .
As we are the most diverse city in the country it really is the aggregate of all of the different communities together within our city that makes JC such a special place to live. After mass we will have a tree planting ceremony - it’s gonna be a great week

With good friends from college in #nashville - to me this is a good city but JC is better.
The next City Council agenda is another busy one as we continue to push Jersey City forward. Items on the agenda include approving the contract to begin the new North District Police Station on Central Avenue. The current precinct was built in the 1800s and is long overdue for an upgrade. Since we took office we already finished construction of one new police station and are starting construction on a new North and East districts. Much of our public safety infrastructure was long neglected for decades and we are working to correct that.
We want our city to be the best mid-size city in the country and that means we need to invest in public safety.
Last week’s 1-minute #JerseyCity update focuses on affordable housing.
