Councilman John Sharpe James Record in Office
I would first like to thank God, my family and the entire Newark Community for allowing me to serve first as Councilman At Large Citywide from November 2013 through July 2014. After chosing not to run At Large again but instead for the South Ward Council seat, I would like to thank the South Ward Community for electing me and allowing us to do our best to improve the quality of life in the South Ward and City as a whole. I was glad to be available 24 hours a day and sincerely enjoyed working with those residents who wanted the best for our community. I pray for those who had personal or negative agendas. I did not use a city phone nor city vehicle saving taxpayers thousands of dollars and sacrificed because I love Newark and the South Ward where I was born and raised.

Thank you for your years of support and vote of confidence in my tenure as your south ward councilman!
