JERSEY CITY – Ward C City Council candidate Imtiaz Syed announced Tuesday that he is withdrawing from the upcoming race to accept a new work assignment.

In a press statement released to the local media this morning, Syed said: “I have taken up an important community development project relating to [the] health care field in Jersey City that will necessitate my full time involvement, including travel, both domestic and abroad in the next 6 to 8 weeks…Owing to this hectic schedule, I will be withdrawing my name from running as a candidate for Ward C and would like to thank all my supporters who signed my petitions to get on the ballot.”

Syed’s departure from the field of candidates leaves Councilwoman Nidia Lopez, Janet Chevres, Richard Boggiano, and Adela Rohena still in the hunt for the Ward C seat.
