An important issue concerning our public schools will be voted on by City Council at tomorrow’s Council meeting at 6PM. You can learn some background facts in the article below: 

NJ.com: Jersey City mayor wants power to appoint school board members, ‘fix’ school system.

This Resolution is scheduled to come before the Council for a vote Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 8. If it is voted on and approved by the Council there will be a referendum – a question on the ballot of the November 3, 2020 election, that will ultimately decide the issue.
