Now I can hope for a Jersey City of which I can be proud. For too long it has been very corrupt. Please keep up the good work, Mayor Fulop. Grateful citizens applaud your actions.

Great job Mayor Fulop! The economic value alone is much greater than the few hundreds of cost. Healthy workers and happy workers create much more and don't negatively affect others making them sick and thus costing more to our local economy.

Congratulations! You have managed to give a $500 raise to employees that do not work for you. It's easy to be generous with other people's money.

Bravo Jersey City. Always good to hear about city councils with backbone unlike out corruptly paid-off crowd.
