JERSEY CITY - Voters head to the polls tomorrow to pick who will be mayor of Jersey City.

Incumbent Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy faces several challengers in Tuesday's election, but his strongest competition is longtime rival Councilman Steve Fulop.

Healy touts balanced budgets with no increases in taxes, and a downward trend in crime rates in the city. Fulop, a first-time mayoral candidate, is hoping on a big voter turnout from his waterfront city council district.

Voters also have two other candidates from which to choose. Abdul Malik, considered a longshot, is a former doctor. Jerry Walker runs a well known after-school program.

If no candidate wins 50 percent of the vote, a runoff election will be held on June 11.
