Preparing for a 2017 guv run, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop announced today that longtime statewide political operative Michael Soliman has formally signed on with the Fulop Team as a senior advisor, running political coordination and outreach for Mayor Steven Fulop.
Soliman, partner at global public affairs firm Mercury, has spent the last 17 years building a statewide political network. He served for seven years as the state director and chief of staff to U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, and managed Menendez’s successful 2012 reelection campaign.
“Michael has tremendous experience working closely with elected officials at all levels of government and community stakeholders,” said Fulop. “His knowledge will be invaluable as we continue to run a robust political operation.”
“Mayor Fulop’s strong vision for the future is needed at this critical juncture,” said Soliman. “Since day one of his administration, Mayor Fulop has taken an aggressive and innovative approach to revitalize Jersey City, leading the state in important areas such as job creation, economic development and affordable housing, all without raising taxes. I’m excited to join Mayor Fulop.”
