Riiiiight

Keep telling yourself that. It had nothing to do with:
• Ignoring NJ in an immediately trashed attempt to run for higher office
• Following Trump around like a lap-dog for a year, in a quickly trashed attempt to land a position in the administration
• He's an arrogant $#@!!, who has no respect for his constituents (Bridgegate, Beachgate, yelling, "Who cares about a blizzard, I'm going to Disneyworld!" etc)

I'm pretty sure those are the big ones. BTW I have no problems with an elected official who is looking 3 steps ahead in their career -- as long as they don't neglect their responsibilities in the process, which he clearly did.

Oh, and....
• Killing the ARC Tunnel and ignoring public transit
• Doing his part to wreck NJ's credit rating
• Reneging on promises to fund state pensions
• Working with Obama during Sandy (which I supported, but permanently infuriated many conservatives)
• Botching the follow-through on Sandy
• Blocked medical marijuana
• Raising gas tax (which I actually support, but is not a popular move)

He may say he doesn't care, but I'm guessing Guadagno did. Christie's unpopularity certainly contributed to her electoral loss.

Riiiiiiight

First of all, spare us the pre-emptive Whataboutism. Even if Murphy turns out to be another Corzine, that does not in any way justify Christie's massive errors and arrogance.

Second, yes fiscal pain tends to happen when your predecessor is fiscally irresponsible. Christie chronically underfunded state pensions; sold off the proceeds for the state lottery for a short-term gain; caused revenue shortfalls with tax cuts; ensured minimal federal infrastructure assistance by illegally seizing ARC Tunnel funds, and using it to fix nearby roads; delayed the tunnel project (which we desperately need) and made it phenomenally more expensive. All of this and more, mostly to try and convince national Republicans that he was a fiscal conservative, and didn't really hug Obama that one time.

I did not understand this new activity is just a lease amendment... not a good situation. Interesting that in the judge's opinion there was a long list of all the various groups that would need to signoff and the DEP response was it was pretty much a done deal with all the groups. "Minimum procedures/hearings" They will be well underway in that area of the park when (if) this hits the recommended appellate court.

Liberty State Park marina plan can move forward, judge says

A Hudson County judge today rejected a push by Jersey City to halt plans to build a new marina in Liberty State Park, paving the way for the plans to proceed with required state approval.

Judge Barry P. Sarkisian, who heard arguments from Jersey City, the state and the marina company at a hearing on Tuesday, rejected the city's arguments that the proposed deal between the state and Suntex Marinas is invalid because the state did not seek bids for the marina plan. The city's arguments are "without merit" because the state in this case is not required to seek bids, Sarkisian said in his ruling.

They are open to the public? They had a retail shop when they were in Belleville, I didn't know the new location has a store. You've been there?

I think the Bellville is their warehouse distribution for local deliveries. They used to be in Totawa, N.J. I sent you a PM with details Monroe.

Driver Sought in Fatal Hit & Run on 1/17 @ 6:30am (Grand - Near Johnston)

Resized Image


By Caitlin Mota
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- Authorities have released surveillance video hoping the public can assist in locating the driver who fatally struck a 63-year-old woman and left her in the street to die.

Theresa Florence, of Jersey City, was crossing Grand Street near the Johnston Avenue intersection at about 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 17 when she was struck by a silver four-door sedan, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement. The car continued to drive west after hitting Florence.

Police were initially called to the intersection on Wednesday morning by the driver of an SUV who realized he had struck the woman. It was determined that driver inadvertently struck Florence after she had already been hit by the silver sedan, officials said.

By Ted Sherman tsherman@njadvancemedia.com,

Federal prosecutors say they intend to retry U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez on political corruption charges.

The trial of the New Jersey Democrat ended in a mistrial in November after jurors were unable to reach a verdict.

The Department of Justice had been facing a deadline later this month to retry the case or drop the charges.

Great point, except I'm not a conservative, so...(voted democrat more than 50% of the time). It's my observation living in one of the bluest of the blue states.

I don't disagree with some of your points. But his approval rating belies some of the things that went well (or at least better than his predecessors). This state is indeed broken. Between Abbott funding, pensions and outright unchecked corruption in places like Jersey City.

Not sure how you missed it, but: Christie is the least popular governor since they started keeping track, 50 years ago. He's leaving with a 13% approval rating. He did a terrible job as governor, most notably screwing over commuters by canceling the ARC Tunnel in a vain attempt to burnish his credentials as a conservative.

No one should be surprised in the slightest that NJers are thrilled to get another reminder that the chump is no longer in office.


I may not have liked him much at all, but you're going to miss him the same way Anti-Trumpers miss Bush (it's a real thing. A lot of "maybe we shouldn't have complained so hard back then, becasue no one listens to us now/Boy who cried wolf scenario). The oncoming explosion of property taxes, and taxes in general wil make Corzine look like MOther Theresa. That, combined with this Sanctuary State nonsense, and you're going to realize it wasn't so bad. I laugh hardest when liberals/democrats, the party of body positivity in praise of obese women in fashion, focus on Christie's weight when there is definitely plenty of valid things to attack.

The most enjoyable part of the post-gubernatorial phase of the Christie saga will be watching his (continued) freefall to ignominy. You don't treat people the way he did/does without having to endure consequences; the beach photo from last summer captures the essence of Christie in a way no 500 page book could.

My guess is Pittsburgh. Labor and land will be less expensive; several tech companies are already there; they are pro-development and pro-tech.

I'm not sure how it is for outdoor recreation, but it can't be much worse than Newark. There are some big state and national parks about 2 hours away by car. Lake Erie is also about a 2 hour drive.

There are acres of vacant land in Kearny, it has its own heliport and is very close to JC and Newark. Swamp, well parts of Hoboken and JC are built on swamp land.
