Get civic with me

Learn, Connect, Act.

Welcome to Civic Parent. This site is devoted to empowering the civic sector in Jersey City, NJ.  I am a licensed CPA, I hold an MBA in accounting, and I have a professional background in tax and business consulting. I research, analyze, and write about property taxes, tax abatements, municipal budgets, and public schools budgets.  I also serve on several non-profit boards in Jersey City, volunteer through my parish (St. Aedan’s – the Saint Peter’s University Church), and advocate for improvements to my kids’ school system (Jersey City Public Schools). Everything on this site is free. I encourage others to learn, connect, and act to improve our community – in every corner of the city.
