Mamta Singh has announced her candidacy for Hudson County Commissioner for District 4. Singh is running to ensure Hudson County remains a safe and affordable city and to bring increased transparency and accountability to local government.
District 4 encompasses Jersey City wards D and C and part of Ward E. The current commissioner is Yraida Aponte-Lipski.
“I’m running for County Commissioner because I believe that the people of District 4 deserve to live in a county that is affordable, safe, and resilient to the challenges the future holds,” Singh said. “It would be an honor to serve the same community that allowed me to live out my own American Dream and I am eager to get to work to ensure Hudson County is a place where everyone can live and thrive.”
As a mom and local non-profit founder, Singh understands the needs of the Hudson County community. She is the founder and executive director of JCFamilies Inc., a 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing Jersey City residents’ parenting experience. The community connects over 40,000 families and provides regular opportunities to network and celebrate all Jersey City has to offer. In addition to her work with JCFamilies, Singh is an active member of the Hamilton Park community, and serves on the County Committee.
Singh is seeking to serve, in an even greater capacity, the community that embraced her 14 years ago when she immigrated to Jersey City. Her vision includes increasing climate resilience, revitalizing public transportation, and ensuring District 4 remains an affordable community to raise a family like hers. She also is eager to get to work ensuring the County’s $600 million budget is managed fairly, transparently, and to directly benefit the community.
“Mamta Singh is an extraordinary leader. She’s already done so much for families across Jersey City, and I am so excited she’s decided to run for County Commissioner on a platform of lower taxes, affordable homes, and progressive values,” said Jersey City Councilman James Solomon.
Election day for County Commissioners is June 6, 2023.
