Join Zellie ThomasTOGETHER WE
ARE STRONGER!

"For years, Zellie Thomas has worked hard bringing the people's message to the forefront of political and media attention in Paterson, organizing the community from the ground level. His efforts have brought about a renewed sense of ACCOUNTABILITY, INCLUSIVITY, and PARTICIPATION, an ethic toward ORGANIZING OURSELVES to change our community.

Every resident of Paterson deserves access to a proper living wage, affordable housing, and quality education. We deserve real change to bring peace and safety in a flourishing community, from a Councilman who respects his role as a custodian of that community and as a mouthpiece for YOUR vision of the city. Zellie is the man of integrity prepared to invigorate this mission for 2018.

Please join us in bringing these issues to City Hall in a way that cannot be ignored. Raise your voices with us and vote on May 8th!

WE ARE THE LEADERS WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! THE CITY NEEDS YOUR VOICE. I AM JUST YOUR MEGAPHONE.

- ACCOUNTABILITY

Accountability

Promises, sentiments, and statements are not enough. Council members hold the keys to change in our city, or the weight of stagnation, and must be held truly accountable. Council members must answer for all the far-reaching outcomes of their actions, and seek ways to lay out and achieve real goals that have been left off the table for far too long.

- INCLUSIVITY

Better Health

Making this governing body yours again means YOU must be included in all processes, and we have to make it safely and easily accessible to you. Whether it's live-streaming council meetings and individual updates, listening and responding to your questions, or bringing Council action to where the people are, we must seek new methods to invite your values to the table.

- PARTICIPATORY

Better Education

This goes farther than hearing your voices, we must ensure you are apart of the decision making process, as well. Policy such as citizen budgeting, civilian oversight, quarterly town hall meetings, and post-election motivational action are high priorities on the agenda of facilitating your involvement and improving this system.
