Bayonne Mayor Seeking Third Term to Continue Revitalizing Peninsula City


BAYONNE, N.J. — Mayor Jimmy Davis is officially announcing that he will run for re-election in the upcoming May nonpartisan contest, seeking a third term to continue revitalizing Bayonne and delivering progress to the community. Under Mayor Davis’ leadership Bayonne is thriving with a redevelopment plan that is growing the city in a smart, sustainable way while creating millions in new tax revenue to expand services and restore the city’s financial footing.

“Bayonne is my home and there is nothing more important to me than seeing our city succeed and our residents thrive — it’s why I get out of bed in the morning, why I work hard for our community every day and why I’m running for re-election now,” said Mayor Davis. “Even with the unprecedented challenges we’ve faced like COVID-19, Hurricane Ida, threats to our healthcare system and more, our city’s future has never been brighter and our residents have never been prouder to live in Bayonne. I’m running to continue that progress and keep Bayonne moving forward.”

Some of Mayor Davis’ key accomplishments include:

  • Successfully managing the city’s redevelopment process to attract new investment and millions of dollars in additional tax revenue

  • Moving forward with the redevelopment of the MOTBY site with new mixed-use buildings, a major new logistics center that will create hundreds of jobs and a new ferry terminal that will greatly improve access to New York City

  • Keeping Bayonne safe by hiring more police officers and investing in technology and community policing programs

  • Helping small businesses thrive with new restaurants, stores and services opening throughout the city

  • Protecting residents’ access to essential healthcare services by fighting against attempts to close Bayonne Medical Center

  • Expanding and improving recreation programs and facilities to better serve residents of all ages

  • Helping the community get through the COVID-19 pandemic with strong access to vaccine and testing sites

  • Taking decisive action during Hurricane Ida to assist residents and businesses with flooding and ensuring that FEMA provides recovery funds

First elected in 2014, Mayor Davis won a landslide re-election victory four years later and swept all five City Council races in addition to his own. A retired officer with the Bayonne Police Department, Mayor Davis grew up in the city and lives with his wife and youngest son. The Davis campaign will be announcing its City Council slate, key endorsements and more information in the coming weeks.
