Good and there are a lot of interesting choices for the Council seats. I am voting for Team Fulop for At Large and Ward Council members. Even if voters have a desire to vote for Mayor Fulop and vote for a non-Team Fulop member then of course they will do so. I just hope they don’t vote for any candidate who is connected to the Matsikoudis (aka Healy) ticket. If he gets his picks onto the Council it will be detrimental to Jersey City’s forward progress. As you can see from his many attempts to stop the election move. It would be even worse than a Boggiano or Yun no vote.

Team Healy had their chance to bring real change to Jersey City for 9 years and did nothing. Now they want another try? Send a loud clear message come Tuesday November 7th, 2017 that we don’t want him back and sniffing around in 2021.

I still remember a six family unit paying $3,000 after the 1988 revaluation while the one family next door paid $10,000. The same will happen again and I will collect the numbers. By the way, when the city sells the tax liens next month, it is not the multi-family building on the list, it is usually the small homeowners who pays higher taxes than the multi-family building. Besides, I still stand behind my comments on Symes. In case you didn't know, the city had a conference in NYC several years ago. Developers and then Bob Cotter was there, selling the city. It would not surprise me if Dixon Advisors was also on the list.


How about we find out what "association" Yvonne has with the Matsikoudis campaign? Given that a disgusting bigot like Yvonne somehow controls a large chunk of the NIMBY vote, how about we find out what quid pro quo she was promised for her unwavering support and cheerleading of this administration, since every single one of his policies is in contradiction to what she claims to believe.

So please enlighten us as to what riches his campaign showered on you for all this support? The public has a right to know.

Hey dummy you have been harassing me for two years on nj.com. Out of your close to 400 posts 380 of them are nasty sexual replies to my posts within 5 minutes of me posting them the rest are posts looking for me to reply to a thread. Now you actually tracked me down over here and doing the same thing. (are you that lonely?) Let me again try to save you from embarrassment. First for months you swore I was a guy named Dancing Tony. That was until the real Dancing Tony a DJ from Downtown posted for you to stop using his stage name. Hilarious. Now for the last year you have been saying I am a Bruce Tretheway from Cherry Hill, NJ whose has a mail order bride. Also how I am going to off my mail order bride and Mayor Fulop’s wife so I can hook up with Steve. Dude get some help.

You are either a master manipulator or an idiot. (Hmmm) The reason I say master manipulator is because my industry it used to be very competitive still kind of is but sadly everything is mostly outsourced offshore. We had a loser (no offense well maybe) who would try and play mind games on hard working employees. “Hey Joe you look so tired today are you sick.” “Gee it looks like you are have problems do you really think you can deliver the project on time.” "Let’s ask for more time you look wore out”. Over and over to try and bring a person down. Never worked.

I hope that is what you are trying to do discredit my JC posts and bring me down otherwise you are a dummy. Healy’s guy is not going to win get over that dream and also hopefully none of Healy’s guys Council members will get in either.

Thank you for your concern, but no.

I served on the board of directors for the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy for approximately 9 years, 2001-2010. I was President from 2005-2008 or so. As a former board member I am on the "Advisory Council" but that has no authority with the group other than the fact that the board members respect our past service.

A few years ago, well after I was off the board, the JCLC gave an award to Dixon for its restoration and rehabilitation work in the historic districts. I had no role in that decision and did not even know who Dixon Advisory was until the awards ceremony. The person who accepted the award gave a funny though lewd thank you speech where he said that normally they go to these ceremonies and are "the big corporate dicks." But that night Colgate was also receiving an award so he was relieved that he could bestow that title on them instead. That's the last time I had any interaction with a representative of Dixon.

As for the JCDO, I am one of hundreds of elected committee members in Jersey City. In Ward E committee members are all over the place. I know several that support James, several that support Nick, and several that support Rebecca.

In my case, I offered to meet with any candidate that wanted to meet with me. I had personal 1 on 1 meetings with Rebecca, Nick, and Madeline. I went to a small house party for James and questioned him as well. I also spoke with different people who were supporting the candidates as well to see why they were doing so. I made my decision to support Rebecca about 3 weeks ago and announced it a week later.

(I see some other candidates have threads (some shamelessly started by themselves) I’ll start one for Mayor Fulop)

As JC old-timer (aka a grumpy old man) I am voting for Mayor Fulop and Team Fulop. I can’t believe how far Jersey City has come in last four years. He deserves to be rewarded with a full Team of YES votes for the next 4 years for bringing ALL of JC back to life. Can’t wait to see how far JC will have progressed come 2021.

Rolando Lavarro for At-Large Council
Joyce Waterman for At-Large Council
Daniel Rivera for At-Large Council

Denise Ridley Ward A Council
Mira Prinz-Arey Ward B Council
John Hanussak Ward C Council
Moriah "Mo" Kinberg Ward D Council
Jermaine Robinson Ward F Council

PS – friends, family, and work mates used to mock me for never leaving JC, they don’t anymore. They now ask me if I know of anything that is available for their young adult children…or themselves. I do tell them they should have simply…neverleft.

Nonprofit offers free IT training to these tech-savvy New Yorkers

Nonprofit offers free IT training to these tech-savvy New Yorkers

By John Aidan Byrne
October 22, 2017 | 3:50am

Jason Vega, a former low-income worker, is living proof of a new America Dream thrusting hundreds of once-struggling tech-savvy New York residents into the ranks of the middle class.

And it doesn’t demand four years of expensive college and a lifetime of crippling student debt.

Actually, it’s free to qualified students.

Vega is a graduate of NPower, a nationwide nonprofit offering a free 22-week IT training program, from tech networking to Web design, and with some 530 students currently enrolled at classes in Brooklyn, Harlem and Jersey City.

Now Vega, 27, of South Brooklyn, is a skilled cyber-security operations engineer, who works for Morgan Stanley in downtown Manhattan, earning great benefits and a salary that will help finance his plans for a spanking new condo. He recently bought his first car.

It’s a long way from his former life.

The high cost of college was too much for Vega to bare, and his ailing grandmother and family needed him at home.

“It’s amazing, how my quality of life has skyrocketed, and my income has more than quintupled since then,” Vega told The Post, noting how this more than five-fold growth from his last salary as a service rep, still makes him smile.

Vega, who’s single, went from $14 an hour as a customer service rep to a well-paid member of a crack-troop IT team on Wall Street.

Vega is not the only one. He’s one of a growing number of young professionals (and even military vets) landing well-paid tech careers, thanks to unconventional programs, many serving poor neighborhoods like Vega’s. And many are sponsored by Wall Street and big-business tycoons, who keep close contact with professionals like Vega in these programs, and open their doors to them after graduation.

NPower was officially launched in the early part of the century. JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Dell Technologies are among the prominent underwriters and partners.

The real push to recruit and train IT workers, however, has come through corporate funding in the past 12 months as US companies scramble to fill open jobs, according to an NPower spokesman.

New programs recently started in Harlem and Jersey City to complement existing programs out of the Metrotech Center in Brooklyn. They have an acceptance rate of 50 percent, with an age limit of 25 (but no age limit for military veterans).

The only educational requirements to apply are a high-school diploma or GED — and, of course, an aptitude for technology. More than 80 percent of graduates find work after graduation or move on to higher education.

The program is free, including mentoring by experienced IT pros from the industry.

The program targets lower-income inner city kids as a great demographic to fill vacant IT jobs, and at the same time the program provides a boost to inner city economies.

It’s well known that more than half of all US jobs call for some tech and digital skills. But there will be only a pool of 3.3 million domestic workers to fill the 6 million jobs that require some level of technology and digital abilities in the coming years, according to the US Department of Labor.

“It can be really frustrating to try to find a large enough pool of qualified technology talent in the US,” said recruiter Hetal Parikh, president of Rangam Consultants in Somerset, NJ. “The challenge we have is to match the right talent, with the right skills, with the employer.”

NPower aims to have graduated 15,000 students within the next five years.

“I would not be in the same position I am today financially, emotionally or mentally without the blessings I received from NPower,” said Vega, who sailed into the program partly because of his natural talent for technology.

When Vega officially started work at Morgan Stanley last November, after a paid internship, he was dizzy with excitement. He had successfully completed his intensive IT training at NPower, and had all his certifications.

His rags-to-riches story is a familiar one at the program. Single mother Ateika Samuel worked as a waitress before she enrolled in NPower. Today, she’s an IT professional at Bank of America, making $50,000 a year.

Vega has no regrets about dropping out of college. “I wouldn’t have done this in any other way,” he said. “Sadly, college grads are a dime a dozen, trying without success to get in the front door at firms on Wall Street.”

Why yes! Rebecca used to work for Housing Conservation Coordinators.

Her former co-workers at HCC have all supported her campaign. They are not in the habit of supporting people in the pocket of real estate owners!

She also is on the board of trustees on the Waterfront Project.

“I have been advocating for the small homeowner since the last revaluation…”

Isn’t that some form of an oxymoron if you are supporting and voting for Matsikoudis who wants to impose rent control on small homeowners with 4 or less units?

.


Here is my letter on rent control that was published online in the JJ as well as the print addition recently. Actually, Fulop is pro affordable housing, I have never been pro affordable housing because you are taking the taxes of one group and placing it on another group. I have a history at public meetings of saying I do not believe in affordable housing, unless there is affordable taxes for the small homeowner.

Here's Matsikoudis' statement on transparency:

"While government should not have to reveal aspect of its deliberative efforts, a Matsikoudis Administration will not only shed the light on government decision making but will engage the community in the process itself."

Is this an example of the Matsikoudis Administration shedding a light?
