Here he is, at the Grove Street Path Station, looking a bit shy. Izzy eventually got the hang of it and he helped encourage Jersey City residents to vote for Steve Fulop, running for re-election as Councilman for Ward E.
Funny to watch how commuters were far more apt to politely take a card from him than from the older volunteers. I am glad I enlisted his help and even if he doesn't quite understand what it all means, it is a good introduction to politics.
Since we were volunteering at the dinner hour, there was little time to cook so we ended the day with some Chinese takeout.
And the results are in, with Fulop winning over 60% of the vote. Here's to a bright future for Downtown Jersey City... If only the mayoral results were as encouraging...
