The Downtown Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (DCNA) is sponsoring a
final Jersey City Council Candidate forum to be held at Ferris High School on
Just one week prior to the election, the forum will be moderated by Historic
Paulus Hook Association board member, Dr. Jonathan Wharton, professor of
Political Science at Steven's Institute of Technology. The forum will include
popular questions asked by fans of the Jersey City Council Candidates Forum
Facebook page. Short videos of the candidate answers will be posted on
Facebook following the forum. "The inclusion of Facebook in this forum aims to
harness the power of social media to let residents determine what questions they
want the candidates to answer and to provide residents, especially those who
can't attend the forums in person, an opportunity to actually see and hear the
candidates," said Candice Osborne.
The Jersey City Council Candidates Forum Facebook page was created by
Candice Osborne in conjunction with the Jersey City Independent. HPHA board
member, Stephanie Daniels, is producing the event.
