Ward E Council Candidate Rebecca Symes Files Over 1,000 Nominating Petitions


JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Today, Ward E Council candidate Rebecca Symes announced she has filed a total of 1,007 signed nominating petitions with the City Clerk. The deadline for City Council candidates to file petitions is September 5th, and the minimum number of signatures required for ballot placement in Ward E is 263.

Symes had filed 354 signatures in July, well before the September deadline, and collected even more while directly engaging with residents. Symes announced her candidacy in June after incumbent Ward E Councilwoman Candice Osborne announced she would not seek reelection.

“With the help of dedicated volunteers, our campaign has knocked on thousands of doors and listened to the concerns of our neighbors. They overwhelmingly want the City Council to protect what makes Downtown Jersey City a dynamic, vibrant place to live,” said Symes. “I am proud of the 1,007 signatures this campaign has received, but more importantly, inspired that so many engaged residents share our vision to continue our city’s progress.”
