Re: Group Urges BOE to Fully Fund Schools

Home away from home


A couple of years ago, the late Councilman Yun invited me to his club where he showed me the city's bonds schedule. He was delighted the bonds would be paid off soon and concluded the tax rate would drop. I knew that would not happened, that the city would keep refinancing bonds. In fact, JC bonds have been refinanced so many times it has lost its tax exempted status. Tax exempt status only applies when bonds builds something. We are building nothing. What the city should do is make this information available for the public.

The Obama Administration actually helped draft the ACA in cooperation with the House and Senate.

Trump clumsily operated a Sharpie.

Let's put it in a way you conservatives understand. Trump should get a participation trophy for the CARES Act.

Garden State Parkway Exit 127 is where North Jersey begins, coming from the South. Going South from Exit 127 you are in Central Jersey, and you hit South Jersey once you hit South Toms River (Exit 80)

Moore’s Lounge GoFundMe campaign will help more than one of N.J.’s foremost jazz scenes

Updated 11:33 AM; Today 10:42 AM
By David Menzies | The Jersey Journal

Even before the pandemic officially hit last March, Moore’s Lounge had been getting back on its feet after a very complicated renovation process.

Before that, the tavern at 189 Monticello Ave. founded almost 52 years ago by Ruth Moore and the late Bill Moore and had regularly been host to jazz bandleader and drummer Winard Harper’s “Meet the Artist” series, featuring some of the top jazz musicians in the country, along with a weekly jam session.

He didn't write it. The House did, and wanted to do more. He just signed it. You are purposefully inflating Trump's contribution.


More left wing dribble... I know he wasn't your president, but by rules of the Constitution which the Left now firmly upholds... it is the President who signs legislative acts into law. By your logic, Obama should not get credit for the 2010 ACA?

You're talking to an economic genius who can't do basic math and left millions on the table selling her house too soon. The only reason she harps on this nonsense so much is because she feels her bank account should be inflated by at least a million dollars.

No, you don't run a city that is short on cash to the point that you refinance your bonds that has one to 6 years left. Once those bonds are paid off, you have more money available. That is poor management and Fulop has been in office for quite some time so if there is a shortage of cash, he can only point to himself.

A Notorious Developer Has the Last Laugh — Part I

The case of two Downtown buildings completed last year by the notorious developer Peter Mocco has raised serious questions about the city’s commitment to enforcing its own zoning laws. Without approval, Mocco added floors, a swimming pool, changed building materials, and made myriad other substantial changes to the two luxury apartment buildings with little concern that the city would stop him or that he would face serious consequences.

It would not have "potentially barred" him because the bill's proponents have said all along that the bill did not apply to municipal prosecutors. The amendment clarifies what was already in both the text and intent of the bill.
