Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop released the second television campaign commercial for the November 2017 mayoral contest, following the release of the campaign’s first television ad “A Day at the Beach”.
The new ad, “Bike Shop”, touts Mayor Fulop’s successes in strengthening Jersey City’s local economy. Since the start of the Fulop Administration, over 500 new small businesses have opened shop in all neighborhoods of the city, and residents have experienced the lowest unemployment rate the city has seen in 25 years.
“Here in Jersey City, we have prioritized supporting small businesses in a way that hasn’t been done before, putting us at the forefront of both job creation and small business creation in New Jersey,” said Fulop. “With new small businesses come new opportunities for our residents, and we are proud to partner with the city’s growing small business community to continue strengthening Jersey City’s economy.”
The commercial highlights the Fulop Administration’s focus on job and small business creation. Since 2013, the administration has worked to support small businesses, started a small business forgivable loan program, began a second chance program for formerly incarcerated, and made hiring local for construction sites mandatory.
