Jersey City council to take up competing revisions to pay-to-play ordinances

By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal
October 24, 2012

With two proposed revisions to Jersey City’s pay-to-play law on the agenda for tonight’s City Council meeting, council members are set to decide whether to follow the lead of Mayor Jerramiah Healy or his political rival, Ward E Councilman Steve Fulop.

Healy’s proposal entails one revision to the city’s four-year-old pay-to-play ordinance. Healy’s plan would bar the city from entering into contracts with vendors who contribute to city Board of Education candidates.

Fulop, meanwhile, has a much more expansive proposal that would prohibit city vendors from donating to campaigns of state Assembly or Senate candidates running in Jersey City districts.

Doing this, Fulop says, would restrict “wheeling,” the practice of donating to an aligned candidate to circumvent campaign-finance laws.

Fulop’s proposal would also bar vendors from contributing to political action committees, engaging in “get out the vote” drives or expressing support for any candidate in a city election.

At Monday’s council caucus, Healy’s council allies advocated for the mayor’s proposal, saying Fulop’s wide-ranging plan needs more investigation before possible adoption.

“Why don’t we just pass the less strict one, and (then) expand it?” asked Ward A Councilman Michael Sottolano.

Fulop urged the council to approve both measures, which are up for introduction at tonight’s council meeting, and give him three weeks to explain why his is the better plan. The measure would be up for adoption three weeks from today.
“If we are to do it, we should do it properly,” Fulop said.

The pay-to-play revisions were first proposed weeks ago by residents who are unhappy with a key Fulop donor winning a contract with the BOE in April, though neither measure set for a vote tonight would have prohibited that contract from being awarded.

Councilwoman at large Viola Richardson, a key vote, said she’s undecided on whether she’ll vote to introduce both measures or just the mayor’s.

Richardson noted that she’s inclined to vote with Healy this time around. Fulop’s plan to ban city vendors from contributing to state candidates may not be legal, she said.

Re: where is the county clerk?
Home away from home
Home away from home


If you have enough time, you can apply by mail rather than in person. Instructions are here. The application form to fill out is here in PDF. Print it 2-sided, fold and seal and put on a stamp.

The instructions say:
Please note: a voter may apply for a Mail-In Ballot by mail up to 7 days prior to the election, or he or she may apply in person to the County Clerk's Office until 3 p.m. the day before the election.

So October 30 is the last day they will accept a mailed application to vote by mail, and November 5 is the last day to apply in person.

If you do go in person, turn off Montgomery on Florence and follow it around to Cornelison, or turn off Summit and go down Wayne. If you drive, there is a visitor parking lot on Cornelison but you'll have to look carefully at the signs to find the right one.

Teen Girl Sexually Assaulted in Pershing Field by 13-Year-Old
Home away from home
Home away from home


A 13-year-old Jersey City boy followed a girl, 13, into a Pershing Field bathroom Sunday afternoon and attempted to sexually assault her, police said.

The boy, of Prospect Street, was charged on Monday with sexual contact and criminal attempted sex assault after the girl reported the incident at her school.

The girl told school officials that when she went into the bathroom at Pershing Field in the Heights, the boy threw her on the bathroom floor and started groping and kissing her, police reports said. The boy then tried to unzip his pants, police reports said. The report did not say how the girl thwarted the attack.

The boy was arrested later that day and he was released to the custody on his older brother, reports said.

Credit is due to the police and correctional officers for dealing with this very difficult situation in a professional manner. The outcome could have been much worse.

However there does appear to be a problem with JCMC emergency care: do they know how to diagnose and treat psychotic patients?

A Jersey City man who officials had said bit off a finger while at the county jail on Sunday has all of his digits, officials said yesterday.
Initial information given by a county spokesman on Monday was incorrect and, in fact, Jargett Washington gnawed but didn’t bite off or swallow one of his fingers, Hudson County Department of Corrections Director Oscar Aviles told The Jersey Journal.

Washington, 29, had been arrested after police said he stripped naked at the intersection of West Side and Communipaw avenues and tried to carjack a driver stopped at a traffic signal. Washington, who police said appeared to be on PCP, was arrested and taken to the Jersey City Medical Center.

After being cleared by the JCMC, Washington tried to gnaw his wrists to get out of his handcuffs and ate his hospital ID bracelet, police said, adding that he was returned to the JCMC for further evaluation. After being cleared a second time, Washington defecated in the back of the police cruiser on the way to the jail in Kearny, police said.

Once at the jail, Washington was placed in a holding cell while he was being processed, Aviles said. There, Washington began gnawing at a finger and was removed from the cell by corrections officers, Aviles said.

“If an inmate is trying to hurt himself or others, then we act,” Aviles said. “In this case, everyone acted according to established policy, but we are in the process of doing a critical incident review.”

Washington was returned to the hospital, where he was under observation yesterday, a hospital spokesman said.

Then thats even worse - The cops obviously had doubts about his mental or possible drug affected state to return 3 times - Maybe the examiner needs to be 'cleared' to perform such examinations or the Police should seek a second opinion elsewhere - The question is why did the Police had doubts, three times!

Here’s a sad piece of JC history for you newcomers it has some similimities to the JC naked man incident that just occurred. (the naked mad man part and the being discharged part) The rumor at the time was that the naked guy ended up with over 100 bullet holes in him.

NAKED MAN DISARMS OFFICER, KILLING HIM WITH HIS GUN

By ROBERT HANLEY, Special to the New York Times
Published: November 7, 1986

JERSEY CITY, Nov. 6— A 53-year-old police sergeant was shot to death with his service revolver early today after a naked and apparently deranged man disarmed him in a struggle on a run-down street corner.

Bleeding from a head wound, the sergeant, Donald Carroll, sought refuge in a late-night grocery store. As Sergeant Carroll pushed against the store's plate-glass front door to keep the man out and yelled for the counter clerk to call police, the man fired five bullets through the door, striking Sergeant Carroll several times in the chest.

Moments later, the man, who the authorities said had a history of mental illness, was killed in a fusillade of police bullets after crashing Sergeant Carroll's patrol cruiser into a parked car.

Man Discharged Before Killing
Published: November 8, 1986

JERSEY CITY— The mentally deranged man who disarmed and killed a veteran police sergeant early Thursday was discharged after four weeks of psychiatric treatment only two days before the slaying, authorities said today.

The man, William Mitchell, a 33-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, was given an injection of a tranquilizer on Monday when released from the psychiatric ward of Jersey City Medical Center, according to Barbara Willis, a spokesman for the center.

Miss Willis said the tranquilizer -Prolixin Decanoate - was meant to ''sedate'' Mr. Mitchell and ''help keep him rational.'' The medication's effect was to last three to four weeks, Miss Willis said.

On Wednesday morning, several hours before he shot Sgt. Donald Carroll, 53, Mr. Mitchell appeared at the medical center for a scheduled outpatient psychiatric exam.

This is the kind of "crock" I would expect from a Healy operative. Your method of trying to"influence" the board is duplicitous. Any legitimate "claim" you may have made (and I thought some claims were good) has been polluted by your manner of communication.

You can't rail against the other side for being devious in a devious manner without losing all of your credibilty.

Ironically IMHO the legitimate good Mr Levin may bring to the council has been polluted by the manner he has chosen to try to get elected. For some of us the end does not justify the means.

Maybe it is because I'm not down in the political mud with some of you but I am an angry taxpayer that is voting against Healy. Sorry ....end of sermon

Video of the Naked carjacker

So, a friend of mine happened to be waiting at the light when this individual was causing mayhem.

The first ten seconds are dark as the individual attempted to open her door and she hid the camera. Police were already called.

She ate the red light and sped away.
