Jersey City Council candidate Kevin Bing (District C) unveils his platform ahead of the November 2nd election
Jersey City, NJ – Local Jersey City Council candidate in District C, Kevin Bing, announced the political platform of his campaign for the upcoming November election and outlined a broad vision for the city he has named “America’s Best City.” . Bing describes itself as an advocate of progressive values ââagainst machine politics, calling for a city to be built that is affordable for everyone, to make our roads safe and to welcome everyone who wants to call Jersey City home. The plan includes investments in restoring the pandemic, funding a tenant’s right to free legal assistance, and creating a civil police review committee with subpoena powers.
Bing’s Jersey City: Best City platform swings a bold agenda and also describes quality of life issues that several voters have expressed frustration over. Denouncing the lack of green space in Ward C (Journal Square and Hilltop residents are only blessed with 0.3 square feet of parking per person) Bing is calling for the Jersey City canopy to be expanded and for new property developments to include open green space. In addition to the expansion of parks and green spaces, the residents of Journal Square and small business owners would like a complete overhaul of “almost innumerable” potholes, an inadequate waste management system and the continued implementation of the city’s Vision Zero road safety plan. âAs an advocate for bicycle and pedestrian safety, I know firsthand that transportation in Jersey City can be improved. We want a city where everyone can get from A to B safely. âMr Bing said on the subject. Bing also calls for full funding of our schools and supports collaboration between the city council and the education committee.
The platform also announces Mr. Bing’s public pledge not to accept campaign entries from real estate developers. “It is important for me to have a candidacy that gives Jersey City voters an independent voice.”
“Not only do I want to make progressive change, I am willing to address these quality of life issues,” Bing commented. âThis plan came about after listening to several Jersey City residents attending to their community. Together we have worked on this vision and will try to make it a reality in the elections. “
