I agree it is wrong to attack the tenants over where they live but public housing was started for returning war veterans after World War 2. It was also the time that rent control laws were written to help the returning veterans. Here is the problem, the Jersey Journal published 34 pages of names of Jersey City homeowners who cannot afford to pay their water and or taxes for calendar year 2017. I suspect there are people on that list who will go into tax lien complaining. In case you did not know, JC public housing unlike other public housing in other towns pays absolutely zero dollars to JC. It has an agreement to deduct its utilities before its in lieu of taxes are paid. Even the late Mayor Cunningham thought that was wrong and tried to get $100,000 from them but he died and the subject was dropped. No one should live in JC and not contribute to government especially if you vote, so I believe in a city income tax instead of property tax.
