It’s with great sadness that I announce the passing of retired Bayonne Police Chief Frank Pawlowski.

Chief Pawlowski served our community for 39 years after joining the Police Department in 1964 until his retirement in 2003. Chief Pawlowski also served our country in the United States Army.

I worked under Chief Pawlowski for many years during my career with our Police Department and always found him to be well respected, fair, and dedicated to the people of our city.

On behalf of our grateful city, I want to express our deepest condolences to the entire Pawlowski family on their loss. Rest in Peace Chief. 🇺🇸🙏

New Jersey's Urban Cities: An Example of Segregated Housing

In recent years, the State of New Jersey has found itself trapped in a paradox, grappling with the effects of gentrification and the escalating cost of living.

Urban cities like Jersey City, Newark, Patterson are now witnessing the displacement of long-term residents, as newcomers who can afford the skyrocketing rental and housing prices take their place.

As a lifelong resident of Jersey City, I've borne witness to the early stages of gentrification, as downtown areas transformed, pushing out Latino residents and welcoming gentrifiers seeking proximity to NYC. Unfortunately, the surge in real estate prices has extended its grip to all corners of the city.

Over the years, various City Administrations attempted containment strategies, hoping to restrict luxury housing developments to the downtown core.

However, this plan has faltered, as million-dollar properties have sprung up on the Southside and Westside, underscoring a fundamental failure in understanding the real needs of the community.

Civic Leader Tom Zuppa's recent statement aptly captures the dissonance between what is "affordable" for some and what genuinely addresses the needs of those who truly require affordable housing.

It's vital for elected officials to grasp that the American Dream wasn't about merely affordable rentals; it was centered on accessible homeownership for every American.

Mandating affordable housing rentals in new developments, while a step in the right direction, amounts to a band-aid solution. It sidesteps the core issues driving escalating housing costs and the dearth of affordable homes across the board.

To create lasting change, elected officials must devote more time to fostering constructive collaborations with housing advocates and affordable housing developers.

When I ran for mayor, we ran against the entire political machine in Hudson County - and we won. Ppl can say what they want but truth is that we forced our way to having a seat at the table. Nothing was given. One person/vote at a time and hard work we will win statewide. We started yesterday “meet & greets” at hosts homes for our campaign. This event yesterday was in Morris County.


It is exciting to file my petitions to run for re-election to serve the people of the 5th Ward.

In hundreds of conversations I’ve had with 5th Ward voters over the summer, I have been gratified with the strong, positive response to my message of working to improve all Hoboken residents’ quality of life and keeping our city on a sound long-term fiscal path.

I am running for re-election based on my record of accomplishment, including working on the successful completion of the transformative Northwest Resiliency Park, defending our public waterfront at Union Dry Dock, being responsive and accessible, and strongly backing major infrastructure upgrades, such as Vision Zero improvements and Rebuild By Design resiliency infrastructure.

The Foundation began operation in 2006 with the idea of helping and improving the lives of people with disabilities and, in particular, the children. Since then, we have been able to assist people in Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and the United States with durable medical equipment. And afford that undoubtedly had improved the mobility and quality of life of many individuals. In 2008 we started our art program with four children and one goal in mind. To conduct and develop inclusive art education programs for young children and introduce the arts into their early educational experience, and over time, we have served over 6,000 children in Union City, Paterson, West New York, Mountainside and vicinities. This program has become the flagship of our foundation and is the bridge between special needs children and children without disabilities. A program that successfully teaches to our student tolerance, acceptance, inclusion and mutual respect through the arts, we also provide multiple services to the immigrant and art community. Your donations, sponsorship and support are vital to helping us to continue moving forward with our mission. Your economic assistance helps us to purchase supplies for art classes, cover expenses to repair donated durable medical equipment to then be donated to children in need and to cover the operative cost of the foundation.
Please help us with whatever you can as it will be much appreciated.
