Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is joining Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and state Senator (D-33)/Union City Mayor Brian Stack in making the push for the Airbnb ballot question to pass on November 5th.
“I support Jersey City’s Local Ordinance 19-077. Short-term rentals should be regulated. #VoteYesJC,” Murphy tweeted from his personal account this morning.
His response came with a tweet he shared from Share Better, a group sponsored by the Hotel Association of New York City and the New York Hotel Trades Council that supports the ballot initiative.
“VoteYesJC prevents commercial operators, many of whom are not based in JC, from converting entire neighborhoods into full-time hotels, which limits housing & increases rents for residents. These rules prioritize the people of Jersey City over corporate profits,” they tweeted earlier this month.
