Schundler Kicks Off Fall Campaign With Jersey City Success Tour

(WEST ORANGE, SEPTEMBER 4) - Republican Gubernatorial Nominee Bret Schundler will accompany community, educational and business leaders on a tour of Jersey City Wednesday to kick off the final nine weeks of the gubernatorial campaign.

Schundler's success as Mayor in turning around Jersey City has won him national praise, and is one of the foundations of his campaign for Governor.

The tour will allow community leaders and members of the press to see first-hand the results of Bret Schundler's leadership and commitment to reform.

During the campaign Schundler will continue to contrast his success at reducing crime, attracting jobs, creating affordable housing and holding the line on taxes in Jersey City, with Jim McGreevey's failure to lead as a state legislator and as the Mayor of Woodbridge.

The following is the itinerary for the Jersey City Success Tour:
