Today, Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla was sworn in to a second four-year term on the steps of City Hall. Councilmembers Jim Doyle and Emily Jabbour were sworn in to third and second four-year terms respectively, while Councilman Joe Quintero was sworn into his first term. City Clerk James Farina administered the oaths of office, as required by city statute, at a ceremony limited to family due to the pandemic.
“It is the honor of a lifetime to be sworn in for a second term as Hoboken Mayor,” said Mayor Bhalla. “I’m looking forward to the next four years as we make Hoboken an even better place to live. Thank you to my family and all of the supporters who have been a part of this journey. I know that for Hoboken, the best is yet to come.”
Mayor Bhalla was sworn in with his hand on the Gutka, a book of Sikh scriptures and spiritual hymns.
“We are humbled and privileged to serve the residents of Hoboken on the City Council,” said Councilmembers Doyle, Jabbour, and Quintero. “We are grateful to our community for giving us the opportunity to serve the public and are eager to continue tackling the many issues before us. Thanks to City Clerk James Farina for swearing us in today, and to the residents of our great city for putting their trust in us.”
