Model of Urban Future: Jersey City?
"In 1992, even though only 6% of the electorate was registered Republican, conservative Republican Bret Schundler, a Harvard graduate who had worked on Wall Street, was elected mayor. Corporations were lured to the city in part by Schundler's reforms and by his reputation for honesty."

For us, the goal was never just to win elections. It was to implement policies that would solve problems in New Jersey and improve people’s lives. That cause endures -- and thus, so does the fight. Tomorrow will bring another opportunity to do what we can to make the world a better place. The day after tomorrow will bring another opportunity. We will win some battles. We will lose some battles. It is the good fight itself that is the good life -- and it is the fact that some good fights are won in time that propels human progress, making such victories more than personal.
