McGreevey Moves to Jersey City

Former Governor James McGreevey has moved from Plainfield.

He now officially lives in Jersey City, which is where he works and where he was born.

“It’s a coming home of sorts, and it’s not political whatsoever,” said McGreevey, whose grandfather walked a beat as a cop on Communipaw.

There were murmurs earlier this year about a future Jersey City mayoral bid for McGreevey, the former mayor of Woodbridge who resigned from the office of governor in 2004. In charge of Jersey City’s much-praised prisoner reentry program, McGreevey this past summer angered community leaders and failed to secure approval to locate a relocation center in an African-American neighborhood close to a school.

McGreevey moved to Kennedy Boulevard in the St. Peter’s community.
