#38 Jeremy Farrell Jersey City, Corporation Counsel
Farrell was a surprise selection to be the corporation counsel, but an easy choice for Steve Fulop. “The two hit it off right away,” one insider said. “The mayor trusts his judgment; he’s involved in everything the mayor does.” Farrell, known for his sunny disposition, should be one of the first stops for businesses looking to gain access to Jersey City. He’s just 34, but his star is on the rise.
