Dr. Mitchell Brown, a local physician and attorney, has officially announced his candidacy and election platform for the upcoming May 10 municipal election in Bayonne. Brown said the announcement on April 15 came after meeting with campaign supporters and long-time Bayonne Medical Center employees.

Per his mission statement, Brown pledges to: “reinstate the Integrity of the Office of the Mayor. Each Personnel Hiring will be made of necessity. Each Contract properly bid. Each Development Project properly vetted and deemed valuable to our Community. The Taxpayers’ Funds will be properly allocated. I will return the City of Bayonne to the People.”

In the coming days, Brown said he will release specific details of his plans. Highlights will include: instilling “real change” in the city; reinstating integrity in the Office of the Mayor; maintaining a hospital for the city; creating accountability in government; and working to improved the “underfunded” Bayonne Board of Education, including upgrades and new school facilities.

Brown touts ‘positive feedback from constituents’

After meeting with voters, Brown said there is agreement that “the current narrative of the mayoral campaigns is extremely negative and illogical.”

“For seven plus years it has been the ‘Different Sides of the Same Coin,'” Brown said. “They both signed off on excess Development-without benefit to the Taxpayers. They lost track of City, State, and Federal Funding. They punished the Taxpayers by increasing taxes without regard to ‘quality of life.'”

According to Brown, there is going to be a runoff in the election and he plans to be a part of it. He alleged a recent unnamed poll showed no candidate near even 40 percent.

“Voters are disenchanted,” Brown added.

Brown is holding a fundraiser at The Chandelier at 1081 Broadway on Thursday, April 21 at 6 p.m. Tickets are available by request at 201-339-
2220, by e-mailing drbrown4mayor@gmail.com, or online at drbrown4mayor.com.

Brown said he looks forward to “bringing life to this election cycle” which he described thus far as being “lackluster at best.” He will face off against incumbent Mayor James Davis and City Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski on May 10.
