2nd Ward Council Member Salvatore Gullace

(201) 858-6018

What have been your accomplishments as a City Council Member?

My biggest accomplishments have involved helping our residents.  People on Avenue F complained that it was too dark on their street.  I got in touch with PSE&G to add lighting on the street.  Another accomplishment is that we have gotten roadways paved in the Second Ward.  In response to complaints from residents, I got Suez Water to clean storm drains on Avenue A and Parkside Lane.  For two years running, residents of Prospect Avenue have had problems with Conrail.  I got Conrail to clean up trees, weeds, and litter. 

What things would you still like to accomplish as a Council Member?

I would like to keep helping residents and the community of Bayonne. 

What do you like about being a Council Member?

I like helping individuals and meeting new people.  I go to help people in person, and I like doing that. I like being part of Bayonne.  My mother grew up here; I grew up here; and my children grew up here.  I like finding out more about our community as part of the job.  I also enjoy seeing our children in action in plays and other activities.  I just love being there for the people of Bayonne.

What is your favorite movie?

I enjoyed seeing The Lion King with my daughter.  I like comedies, and enjoyed seeing Eddie Murphy in Coming to America.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

I enjoyed the Christmas and Easter holidays when everyone got together.  

I celebrated my birthday on December 26, so I got birthday cake and Christmas at the same time.  When I got older, I realized that having my birthday the day after Christmas meant that I got ripped off!

Do you have a favorite sports team, color, or book?

My favorite sports team is the New York Mets.  Green is my favorite color.   My favorite books are the Harry Potter series.

Is there anything else that you would like to add to your biography that would help people to understand you personally?

I have been in the Knights of Columbus for more than twenty-five years.  My best moment in the Knights was becoming a Fourth Degree Knight.  I was one of about 200 making the Fourth Degree.  The event took place at the Sheraton Tara in Parsipanny.  I like the friendships that I have made in the organization. My two sons have become Third Degree Knights.
