Just realize that besides not paying taxes as you and other property owners do these irate dog walkers probably do not have any assets other than their dogs so they probably don't care who they destroy in their tracks due to the fact that they have nothing to lose. It's ashame that we have to tip toe around them because of their resentment towards the tax paying public that they seem to disregard.

The most interesting piece of this is "he took photos and .... we weren't out banging on doors" as though that explains anything. The fact is, Healy lost his fastball three years ago and it ain't coming back. Connors? He never had one.

Jersey City mayoral candidate Fulop and his opponents see BOE results differently

By Ray Smith | April 23rd, 2012
politickernj.com

JERSEY CITY - Mayoral candidate and Councilman Steven Fulop’s team received a boost last week when all three of his school board candidates were elected over a slate backed by current mayor Jerramiah Healy and the powerful local teachers union.

The win sent political reverberations through New Jersey’s second largest city as political watchers sought to find significance for the upcoming mayoral showdown.

But the powers opposed to Fulop in Jersey City believe the Board of Education race isn’t an indication of signs to come in 2013, when the downtown councilman will challenge Healy for the city’s most powerful seat.

Assemblyman Sean Connors (D-33), Jersey City, is a Healy ally and former Board of Education member. Connors vacated his Board of Education seat after his recent election to the Assembly, in which he ran on the Hudson County Democratic Organization line. James Madden, Connors’ chief of staff, chalked up last week’s Fulop victory and Healy loss to the county organization essentially sitting on its hands.

“There wasn’t a lot of effort put into the race by the (teacher’s union) or the HCDO,” Madden said.

Parents for Progress, the Fulop backed slate, reported raising a total of $28,175 in their 11-day pre-election filing. Other Board of Education candidates have not yet filed paperwork with ELEC detailing campaign expenses, according to a review of campaign finance records.

Madden said despite the success of Fulop and his candidates, his team “doesn’t see this as a bellwether to anything.”

Fulop sees the results of the Board of Education race differently, calling last week “a very solid week for our team, to say the least.”

“They sent out mailers with Jerry Healy, Charlie Mainor, and Sean Connors,” Fulop said in response to comments made about his opposition not trying. “They all put their name in (the race). It’s just such a childish response. That’s fine. It’s not unexpected that they rationalize.”

Political observers in Jersey City have, since 2005 when Fulop joined the City Council, questioned the councilman’s ability to win outside of downtown, where he built his base on the backs of Wall Street West voters as the Ward E councilman. But Fulop hopes to put the doubts to rest after his Board of Education candidates won all six wards in a diverse Jersey City last week.

Tom Favia, the president of the Jersey City Education Association, endorsed the same candidates as Healy, but has not committed to endorsing any candidates in 2013 when the mayor’s seat is put up for grabs.

Favia said he doesn’t believe Healy’s endorsement played a major role in the Board of Education race.

“As far as the mayor’s endorsement, I don’t know what he contributed to it,” Favia said. “(Councilman) Peter Brennan was very helpful, but I don’t think (the endorsement) really helped much.”

Instead, Favia said a low turnout from his membership plagued his candidates’ chances.

“I’m disappointed because I think we could have won it,” he said. “I don’t think the rank and file of our membership came out the way they should have.”

When asked about the potential of a “Fulop factor” in the election, Favia said he thinks the councilman’s influence contributed to the outcome of the race.

“Oh, there’s no question,” Favia said. “He was down at the tubes handing out fliers. He walked the streets with them. There’s no doubt that he was influential. That was his ticket. He played it for all it was worth because he understood the importance of the election. If he had lost it, I think it would have been a big loss to his campaign...I give him credit for understanding the value of it.”

Multiple messages left for Healy through a press secretary were not returned last week. A message left at the professional office of Raj Mukherji, Jersey City deputy mayor, was also not returned.

Although Healy has declared himself a candidate for mayor in 2013, sources in Jersey City opposed to Healy think other candidates could step in to run on the HCDO line. Fulop echoed those voices on Friday, saying he thinks Healy will “not be at the starting gate” in January.

Fulop’s election fund has raised $657,512 thus far, according to a January ELEC filing, and he’s spent $224,878. Healy, on the other hand, has raised a total of $159,382, according to his January ELEC filing, and spent $109,290.

Sen. Sandra Cunningham, (D-31), Jersey City, has been a long-rumored candidate, but has not publicly committed to entering the mayoral race.

At least one behind-the-scenes source in Jersey City believes a potential candidate could be Assemblyman Charles Mainor, (D-31), Jersey City. However, others in Jersey City think it would be difficult for the assemblyman to leave his comfortable seat in Trenton to enter the ring in what will likely be a hard-fought race for city mayor.

Reached Monday, Mainor said he currently does not have any plans to run for mayor of Jersey City, but wouldn't rule it out in the future.

"At this point in my life, I'm just concentrating on remaining the best assemblyman I can be," Mainor said. "But if the opportunity ever came, it would be something I would take into consideration. But I'm not looking at (running for mayor) now."

Sources also say Jerry Walker could soon announce a bid for mayor. The Star-Ledger’s Auditor column reported in February that Walker, a former Seton Hall University basketball player, was recently searching for a home in Jersey City.

But as of right now, all eyes in Jersey City are focused on Healy and Fulop – where the HCDO will see a major challenge from the downtown councilman in what will likely be a nasty dogfight.

“Steve is quick to point out the last two years,” Madden said of Fulop’s other Board of Education victories. “But there has been no effort. No one was out to squash him (in the Board of Education races). It was a non-partisan race. The mayor wasn’t that involved in it, he took photos, and Sean Connors was the same way; we weren’t out banging on doors.”

Fulop called the comments about his opposition not trying “amateurish behavior” from the HCDO. The councilman is hoping to carry his recent momentum into 2013.

But Madden also has a confident message for 2013.

“When we rev up that machine, it’s going to be ready,” Madden said.

Re: Black Panther History

You might want to check out this documentary by Jonathan Demme about his cousin Bobby, an Episcopalian minister in Harlem and Jersey City -- it talks a bit about the Black Panther's here in JC.

It is hard to find.

Cousin Bobby

BY ROGER EBERT
June 26, 1992

Written And Directed By Jonathan Demme.

"Cousin Bobby" is the Rev. Robert Castle, a white Episcopalian priest who has served an inner-city church in Harlem for many years.

He is also the childhood friend of his cousin Jonathan Demme, director of "The Silence of the Lambs" and many other films, but the two cousins had been out of touch for many years before the making of this documentary.

Together, Bobby and Jonathan explore the memories they share together, of childhood days, of aunts and uncles, of family legends.

There is an air of a family reunion to some of the scenes in this documentary, as the men revisit childhood homes and haunts. But the real subject of the film is Cousin Bobby's mission to the poor and dispossessed, a commitment that the film hints has cost him a great deal over the years.

Rev. Castle was, we sense, a fairly conventional Episcopalian clergyman at an earlier stage of his life. Then came the 1960s and social upheaval, and, for him, a crucial and influential friendship with Isaiah Rowley, a Black Panther leader in Jersey City, N.J. At a time when the Panthers were feared and hated, Castle found Rowley to be a natural leader, sane and inspirational, and gradually the white priest was drawn into circles that were alarming to many members of his congregation.

The movie is a little vague about some aspects of Castle's life; there is the feeling that the two cousins, like family members everywhere, draw a veil of silence over certain painful details. What we gather, however, is that after losing a lucrative living because of his politics, Castle drifted until he found a mooring in the Harlem church where, today, he presides over services that combine Episcopal tradition, black gospel and social activism in about equal measures.


As Demme and his cameras follow along, Castle visits a burntout tenement building in his neighborhood, and speculates darkly about arson. He leads an impassioned demonstration for safer streets.

He gives fiery speeches and sermons, interacts easily with the members of his parish, and gives every evidence of bringing Christian principles to the everyday life of his ministry. The title of the movie accurately reflects its focus, because this is not an objective documentary but a home movie of sorts, in which the social involvement of Cousin Bobby is set against a backdrop of faded photographs, old family memories and reunions, and the wonderment we all feel when we meet someone we were friends with long ago, and see what has become of them. It is good to know there are people like Cousin Bobby around.

It is sad to realize how few of them there are.

-----------------

...Also he and other Panther's were said to have shot up the old Downtown Police Station on Newark Avenue (at 3rd Street) back in 1968

Black Panther History
Newbie

Hi,

I presented a talk on the Black Panther Party of Jersey City back in February at Raphs Plaza on Bergen Ave. Most of the information I came across was from the newspapers of the time which is only a small part of the story.

I would like to expand the talk to include oral histories, media, memorabilia, etc.

If anybody has any information that they would like to share, or knows of any former Black Panther Party members that would like to talk, I would love to hear from you.

The talk was recorded but not yet available. When done, I will be posting it to my website for public viewing.

I look forward to any conversation that may develop here.

Thanks in advance.
Brian Carroll

For you adults without children (or with older children), for $9 you can go to just an IMAX film (or just a 3-D film, but I tend to find those less interesting) and skip the museum entirely. My husband and I live in Lafayette, so sometimes walk over for a film. Very cool!

I work in South Orange and can confirm that the recommendations of Lalibela and Harrar are good ones, although of the two, I prefer Harrar. But I also love the more upscale Makeda if you're willing to trek to New Brunswick: http://www.makedas.com/. I actually prefer all three of these to Meskerem. I used to go to the MacDougal Meskerem when I lived in the East Village several years ago, and was never blown away. But I was spoiled living in Chicago for so long near so many great Ethiopian places, so perhaps am a bit picky!

Boy Poncho someone dump you over the weekend or something? For the most part, pet owners take care of their dogs. I have two Yorkies, I do not bring them to restaurants, stores, shopping malls or stores that actually allow pets. They are great company and companions and I walk them several times daily and clean up after both of them. I also have a wonderful life and tons of human companions. Your statements seem a bit immature and of no consequence. Many people have companions besides dogs and many are very responsible pet owners. Don't stereotype all pet owners as losers and irresponsible people that don't have any friends.

And while you're at it, take a refresher course on English grammar and spelling !

I know it's hard to see the bigger picture, but basically when you bring in infrastructure for cycling it acts as a traffic calming measure and ultimately, over time, lessens the amount of traffic there is. Bike lanes encourage people to ride their bikes which means less people driving around. If, in a city, it becomes more convenient to use other modes of transportation over driving, people would be driving less, and it would be safer for all road users. Bike lanes are a start to that progress.

One way to safely create bike lanes would be to eliminate parking on one side of the street and install the bike lane where the parking once was.
