Candidates in Jersey City's citywide election are set to meet for a slew of debates between now and the May 14 race, when the mayoralty and all nine City Council seats are up for grabs.

The mayoral candidates – there are four, including incumbent Mayor Jerramiah Healy – have been invited to three upcoming debates/forums, including one this Thursday at St. Peter’s University that is co-sponsored by news site PolitckerNJ.

The four men have already met for two forums, and Healy and Councilman Steve Fulop went mano-a-mano at the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, there are debates/forums/meet-the-candidates events set for candidates in the council races for Wards A, B, C, E and F.
