Jersey City mayoral candidate Dan Levin announced today that his “One Jersey City” slate will include fellow civic activist Norrice Raymaker to run for council in Ward C.

“With the city’s redevelopment focus now shifting from the waterfront to the Journal Square area, Norrice is the most able candidate to protect and represent the interests of Ward C residents. She brings a breath of fresh air to business-as-usual politics,” said Levin.

Raymaker, who used to serve on the board of CivicJC — a government reform group Levin founded — is the founding director of the Liberty Humane Society, Vice President of the Sgt. Anthony Park Association and serves on the board of the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy.

“The city has catered to developers and people seeking lucrative city contracts instead of listening to the residents and addressing our concerns,” said Raymaker in a statement. “It’s time to step up and take back our city.”

Raymaker joins at-large candidates Emilio De Lia and Andrew Hubsch on Levin’s ticket.

Levin, who owns a picture framing business in the city’s downtown section, is running as an anti-machine reform candidate in a field that includes Mayor Jerramiah Healy, former Assemblyman Lou Manzo and Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith. Levin adds a name to his Jersey City ticket
