EVERY PERSON COUNTS

Council President Lavarro has an unparalleled legislative record that demonstrates his commitment to Jersey City’s working families.  Councilman Lavarro co-sponsored Jersey City’s living wage ordinance with then Councilman (now Mayor) Steven Fulop, which boosted the minimum pay for low-wage workers in city-owned and some city–leased buildings and in certain developments.  The Council President is a vocal proponent of the Fight For 15 campaign to boost minimum wage in New Jersey.  He sponsored legislation establishing and expanding earned sick days, which provides paid sick time for most people working in Jersey City.  The Council President also enacted wage theft protection, protecting workers of Jersey City businesses against unscrupulous employees. Additionally, the Council President’s accomplishments include legislation enabling farmers markets, banning smoking in City parks, and establishing the first Immigrant Affairs Commission in the state of New Jersey.
