I whole-heartedly agree, NNJR (happy day!). Given that this ordinance seeks to address "appearance of impropriety" issues in municipal/developer relationships, I think the motives behind Fulop's introduction of this ordinance and his campaign finance history should be highly scrutinized.

I'll determine what is relevant to whether i support this ordinance, thank you very much. I find your language insulting, DanL, as your post could be easily misread as purporting to be unbiased, when in fact you're clearly pushing for the passage of this ordinance (you drafted it, after all). Being on the side of an ordinance you drafted isn't a problem in itself, but holding yourself out to seem unbiased when you clearly aren't is disingenuous.

Letter to the Editor - MAYOR JERRAMIAH HEALY

Fulop’s plan wrong for city
I am opposed . . . .

As I have said publicly, the basic credo of the administration is simple and was borrowed from the honor code of the U.S. Military Academies and is worth repeating here: “Don’t Lie, Don’t Cheat, and Don’t Steal.”

MAYOR JERRAMIAH HEALY
JERSEY CITY


Actually, the Honor Code, is more about Doing what is Right rather than simply not breaking any rules . . . It is not about Don't do this, don't do that. it is about developing Leaders who honor the trust of the American people with service.

It Ain't about the Benjamins!

Re: Jersey City's Parks and Open Space Master Plan

Just reviewing this again and realized that the draft report is now titled "Recreation Master Plan".

While the draft report does discuss open space needs and deficit, it proposses covering green space with recreational facilities in existing mostly passive parks, rather than centralizing athletic fields and the like in athletic complexes with ammenities to support both ad hoc use and official leagues.

In the draft, there are many proposals to pave over green space to introduce or increase recreational facilities throughout the downtown and the city. While changing the recreational element could makes sense to meet current favor, it would seem counter productive reduce greenspace.

What do others think?

At the last council meeting, Council President Vega stated that Councilman Fulop\'s proposed Redevelopment Pay to Play Reform ordinance would be on the agenda for January 24th.

In the world of our city council, we will be able to confirm this by the end of the caucus meeting on January 22.

If you have interest in how the muncipal council works, stop by City Hall, 280 Grove St., a little before 6pm, 2nd Floor, Monday evening. You can observe, but not speak.

If confirmed that the ordinance is on the agenda, it will come up to be introduced -

Date: Wednesday, January 24th

Time: 6 pm

Place: Council Chambers, City Hall, 280 Grove Street

If you wish to speak in support (or opposition), you can do so during the open speaking portion of the council meeting by calling the City Clerk\'s office on Monday or Tuesday at (201) 547-5150.

Note that the first reading and vote to introduce the ordinance does not provide for public comment. If you speak during the public speaking portion of the meeting, the vote will have been done to either introduce or not introduce the ordinance.

Whether Councilman Fulop or any other council members have accepted campaign contributions from developers is not relevant. This is a vital ordinance and if enacted could have far reaching positive effects on improving our municipal government.

I have said enough about this issue here on this board. For more information, visit Civic JC\'s website for Councilman Fulop\'s press release, Civic JC\'s op/ed article and Civic JC\'s request for support at -

www.CIVICJC.org

The ordinance has been designed and promoted by Citizen\'s Campaign - www.jointhecampaign.org

Hopefully, upon the conclusion of Wednesday\'s council meeting, we will be able to thank at least five of our council members for voting to introduce the ordinance....

Why isn't anyone upset or questioning why a bride, after she gets shaken down for money and telephone service at her wedding, calls the Mayor's Chief of Staff Carl Czaplicki and complains in October?

He in turn tells her to put it in writing which she does. Was he trying to stall or derail this citizens complaint by taking her call then telling her to put it in writing?

Then after letting this woman put it in writing addressed to him, Czaplicki does absolutely NOTHING!

Czaplicki doesn't alert the mayor, doesn't contact the law department, doesn't even call the deputy mayor in to question him, but allows him to continue shaking down unsuspecting brides and grooms until the press picks up on it several months later and then and only then does he address it?

Why hasn't anyone question why the Chief of Staff covered up this action?

Why did Czaplicki allow the deputy mayor to continue to shake down more brides and grooms at their weddings?

Re: Wireless Internet - Steven Fulop
Home away from home
Home away from home


Ai, ai, ai, I once had an argument with a friend about why the government involuntarily takes money from all of us to fund Government schools. "Children need schooling" was the other person's argument. One approach would be to go into the not so subtle nuances of whether the stolen money must only fund shitty government schools and not put them into competition with private schools via vouchers. I still see no reasonable argument against this yet...

My more direct argument was that children need shoes even more than schooling - does that mean that the government should take money from all of us and have a monopoly on shoe production? Are there a lot of poor kids without shoes as a consequence or this not being the status quo?

Given the failure of the government to take care of education and the horrible idea of them having a monopoly on shoes - I really do wonder why anyone thinks that they should get into one of the most dynamic and fast moving business - wireless technology.

First, why do the "disadvantaged" need broadband? What can they do with broadband that they cannot do with dialup?

Is mp3 watching, porno downloads, bit torrent burns, and online gaming "necessary services" that government (ie, homeowners paying property taxes) are obligated to provide?

Why, exactly?

Also, let's be honest- It won't be senior citizens and low income people hooking up to the network.

Going forward, you're going to see the taking of a nascent technology (15 years the internet has been a household word- we're just getting started) from a center of innovation to becoming a "government service" that will run as efficiently and improve as quickly as other "government services".

And why? Because populist politicians are always looking for something else to "give" away.....from someone else's pocket.

I hate Comcast with a white hot burning passion from a service standpoint. The connection, however, rocks, and I'm willing to pay for it (comes down to $2 a day if you don't have digital, less if you do- Hardly a prohibitive cost).

I make a prediction today- If you get "free" government internet, in 10 years it will cost on average way more than $2 a day for each account.

Forcing a company to compete with a "free" government service, with power limited only by their ability to tax, with no incentive AT ALL to service, is a scenario for the destruction of the networks that do exist. Mark my words- Do this, and 20 years from now you'll see a stagnant network that has improved not at all.

But wait! We'll sell advertising! We'll get Google to donate! It will be FREE! Ah yes, initially it will. Someday, however, Google or whoever will be finished with this sinkhole, and you'll find "emergency spending bills" being authorized to cover the costs. Then you'll get 20-30 no-show no work "network maintainence" jobs out of city hall.

I could go on but I'm tired, and I don't need to. Look around you at everything that your municipality either controls or provides. It is uniformly sad, dilapidated, slow, pitiful, and embarassing. They can't maintain a street. You want them to maintain a wireless network?

And all these people I hear worried that government is eavesdropping, controlling, censoring, etc...You all want a government controlling how and where and when you access the internet? What's to stop a municipality from running blocking software to screen out "objectional" websites? You get one bible-thumper in office and it will be "adios porno!", complete with well oiled speeches denouncing use of taxpayer money for porno bandwidth. And once that happens, once censorship is accepted a little bit, it's all over. The next step will be dirty words, "offensive" non-politically correct commentary (defined by whoever is in office at the time), etc etc etc. What about when a political adversary's website "accidentally" gets blocked the week of the election?


Governments... ALL governments, by virtue of what they are, seek to control, to the extent they're able, the flow of information. The Internet is proving to be a revolutionary tool for getting the truth out. Government would love to control the revolution, and to save $2 a day, $1 or less for narrowband, are there really people out there that are willing to let them do it?

Freedom is sold that cheaply?

Would you trust George W Bush with control over your internet connection? Would you believe him when he said he'd never allow anything to be censored today, tomorrow, 20 years from now?

Also- The internet is not "free" from a traffic carrying standpoint. At some time the value proposition for the national network, if the locals become province of government, will change. Not enough time to talk about that here, but remember NOTHING is free, and you get what you pay for.

Think long and hard. There are repercussions far beyond free access in Hamilton Park while walking the dog.

Free wireless access in JC, hahahahahahahah. Not that it will ever happen but even if it did, we can look forward to even more people being mugged, run over or getting into car accidents because they are walking around or driving while listening to the ipod AND talking on the cell with one hand while typing on a handheld with the other. I doubt any wireless system will reach inside houses very well so this will be a free service for people who can afford a Blackberry or Palm or anyone dumb enough to go sit on a park bench with a $1500 laptop. And another thing, as far as this being an essential tool for children's education Bwahahahahahahahah. Dude, don't you know what kids use the internet for? No, not to research for their school essay. It's for My Space, AOL or Yahoo instant messageing, YouTube, porn, gaming, illegal music downloads and god only knows what else. And adults (I use the term loosely) are pretty much on the same level. Ya know, like squandering endless hours on sites like, well, sites like this one right here.

In JC? I don't know of municipal free hotspots. the Jersey City Public Libraries do offer free internet access.

In Philly users are charged based on need, so it can cost from $9.99 a month - digital inclusive rate for low income people - to the market rate of $21/month.

I doubt that we can count on corporations or advertising to pay for free wi-fi. Google offers free wireless in a few test markets, but I don't think that is going anywhere.

Free municipal wi-fi hotspots in select areas -- as opposed to blanketing the entire city, is more realistic for the short term.

From the Sunday StarLedger

Allowing countiesto provide Wi-Fi A bill to authorize counties to operate publicly accessible wireless Internet networks was approved 5-1 yesterday by the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee.

Sponsored by Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts (D-Camden), the bill would authorize counties to construct, own and operate the broadband telecommunications infrastructure necessary for providing free or reduced-rate pub lic access to wireless Internet net works. It would allow the networks to be financed through the issuance of local bonds to be repaid through revenues derived from providing Wi-Fi service.

"There is no reason wireless networks should only be limited to certain homes and businesses," Roberts said. "If individual communities and counties wish to extend such access to their residents, they should have all means possible to do so."

Last month, Camden and Gloucester counties began exploring the possibility of establishing a Wi-Fi network that could make every home, business and public space in both counties Internet accessible. The city of Elizabeth has partnered with Kean University, Union County and two private providers to initiate a pilot program to provide free Wi-Fi service at certain high-traffic "access points" in the city.

On page 29 of the 1.21.07 Sunday Star-Ledger is the article: ELIZABETH ENTERS THE WI_FI WORLD. It is not available on-line, but here is an excerpt "..tomorrow , [Elizabeth] will launch the state's first municipal wireless network, a free service offering anyone between Trinitas Hospital and the Broad Street station high-speed Internet access at the click of a button."

What about the state of City Hall?
Mayor's state of city address overshadowed by staff issues.

Ricardo Kaulessar - Hudson Reporter - 01/20

CHANGES AT CITY HALL? There are rumors of a shakeup in City Hall due to infractions of certain staff members.

Mayor Jerramiah Healy was scheduled to give a state of the city address in mid-February, according to city spokesperson Maria Pignataro, but he is now concerned with a more controversial topic - the state of City Hall.

In recent weeks, revelations have come out about recently resigned Deputy Mayor Ador Equipado.

According to several sources, Equipado requested payments from couples for conducting marriage ceremonies at City Hall, even though he is not supposed to do so.

After a pair of newlyweds contacted a local daily newspaper and blew the whistle on Equipado, the deputy mayor was asked to step down. The newspaper reported that months earlier the couple had complained to City Hall about being charged for their wedding ceremony but nothing was done.

The press also reported that Pignataro has been doing event planning for local developers Eric and Paul Silverman on the side. Pignataro responded that she was in that business before working for City Hall.

Shakeup?

Advertisement

Two unnamed city officials said recently, based on recent conversations with Healy and Healy's allies, that a shakeup in the Mayor's Office could be forthcoming, with various staff changes.

There is speculation that interviews are being conducted to replace Pignataro, with her possible resignation around Feb. 1.

Pignataro responded strongly on Tuesday via e-mail, "There is no truth to [the rumors] about my resignation." She followed up with a phone interview on Wednesday in which she said was still "surprised" by the talk of her apparent resignation, which she called "emotionally draining."

"I wouldn't have even considered doing work for the Silvermans without clearing it with Mayor [Healy], who gave me the go-ahead," said Pignataro, who said she worked for public relations firm several years before coming to City Hall in 2004.

"I would never embarrass the mayor in any way. One thing I have learned from working as an events planner is being a team player."

One candidate believed to be in consideration is Sally Deering, a former local journalist who previously served as the spokesperson for the Jersey City Medical Center and is currently the director of development and outreach at the Learning Community Charter School in Jersey City.

When reached for comment last week, Deering said she had "nothing to say" at the present time.

Or an unfair shake?

An unnamed city official with several years of experience in city government said there is very little reason for Pignataro to step down, claiming that her taking on outside work was not a "conflict of interest."

"How does it actually interfere with the city's business?" said this unnamed official. "She didn't vote to give the Silvermans a tax abatement, she doesn't sit on the Planning Board approving any of their projects."

But another unnamed city official who has served in at least two mayoral administrations prior to Healy's said Pignataro's taking work outside City Hall was, "plain and simple" inappropriate.

"I think [Pignataro is] very good at event planning and organizing on that level, but as far as being politically savvy, she doesn't have that," said another unnamed city official. "In the political environment in Jersey City, this does not leave a good impression."

But this official also felt she was unfairly attacked by the local daily newspaper and said that Pignataro and Equipado's offenses were "blown out of proportion."

Both unnamed officials agreed that Equipado's actions were far more serious than Pignataro's, and both confirmed that Healy is looking to issue an executive order specifying that no city official can take payments for weddings.

The Jersey City police are also investigating whether Equipado engaged in any other questionable activity while performing marriage ceremonies.

Another city source said Healy might hold up Equipado's resignation as proof that the mayor is trying to enforce ethical behavior within City Hall, which is important at this time when Healy is looking to start his mayoral re-election campaign at least a year ahead of schedule.

There has been speculation by some officials that the mayor's Chief of Staff Carl Czaplicki could be transferred out of his current position because he bore the responsibility of handling the Equipado situation.

But Czaplicki said last week that he has heard the rumors before and there is no truth to it.

According to Czaplicki, Mayor Healy has not indicated to him that there will be any change.

City Council President Mariano Vega said if Healy wants a shakeup, the present is a good time for it.

"Usually when a term is at its mid-point, it is a good idea to start looking to make changes where it is needed," said Vega.

'A man frustrated'

Pat O'Melia, Healy's longtime friend and occasional foe, who hosts a radio show and several TV shows dealing with Hudson County issues, said that his recent conversations with Healy show a man frustrated.

O'Melia believes that Healy should not be "nice" about dealing with problems in City Hall.

"I think [Healy] is getting tired of having to find out about what is going on around him from everyone else but the people who work in City Hall," said O'Melia. "He has to find out from me, the newspapers, but not the people who work under him. He's getting embarrassed."

O'Melia continued, "They all want to talk about the nice things but they avoid breaking the bad news to the mayor. If I was mayor, there would be firings, not resignations."

Then there's the address

City officials have confirmed that Healy will give the state of the city address by late February. But they cautioned it is not a top priority currently because of the recent problems with Equipado and Pignataro.

Among the issues to be discussed in the state of the city address are: the development of new luxury condos and two-family homes across the city; crime statistics going down in 2006 in categories such as homicide; and the pending revitalization of Journal Square and the HUB Plaza on Martin Luther King Drive.

In today’s, January 20th, “Political Insider” column by Agustin Torres, (not online yet) there is a small paragraph which he pinpoints perhaps our elected officials opposition to the Governor’s plan on property taxes (and benefit to JC citizens). Duel office holding is just a drop in the bucket (though symbolic), this is big dollars....

“They also are not happy with the 4 percent annual tax levy cap, which they call unrealistic if it does not provide for the increase of tax ratables, usually through development”

Canadians acquire Global Terminal & Container Systems, at Port Jersey

Canadians acquire Global Terminal & Container Systems, at Port Jersey

RONALD LEIR - JERSEY JOURNAL - JAN 20

Will some Canadian educators soon be carrying longshoreman hooks to class?

The Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan has bought Global Terminal & Container Systems, Inc., at Port Jersey Boulevard, of Jersey City and Bayonne, along with the New York Container Terminal (formerly known as Howland Hook) in Staten Island and two marine container terminals in Vancouver for $2.4 billion.

"We view this as a very positive event for Global," said the company's president and CEO Maurice J. Byan. "(OTPP) are long-term investors and (the sale) gives us resources to proceed with growth programs we have in place, and we look forward to providing more job opportunities and economic benefits to Jersey City and Bayonne."

He added that "the present management will remain in place" and that "the transition will be seamless."

Global pays Jersey City $829,971 in taxes on nearly 57 acres of mostly storage property while Bayonne collects about $1 million in taxes for 41 acres, much of which is underwater, records show.

Last year, the company acquired two new 225-foot-tall cranes for about $6 million apiece to help handle the cargo growth anticipated by the port in the coming years and is planning $40 million in dock improvements within a year or so. It employs anywhere from 180 to "upwards of 350," depending on the volume of business handled, Byan said.

OTPP spokeswoman Deborah Allan said the pension fund, with $84 billion in assets, closed the deal on Global last week, acquiring the Port Jersey Boulevard property from Orient Overseas International Limited of Hong Kong.

Allan said the properties "will be part of our infrastructure portfolio as a longterm commitment to our members. Our investments tend to be well tied to stability and for that reason we feel that the terminals are a very good fit for us."

Aaron Ellis, spokesman for the American Association of Port Authorities, of Alexanderia, Va., said the investment "ties into the widespread trend of port trade volumes continuing to escalate, and with a diminishing amount of waterfront property to develop new terminals or to expand existing ones, you're seeing an increasing demand for terminal assets."

Re: POWER PLAY? "This would kill urban areas like Hudson County," Manzo said - Fulop is not so sure.

I like Lou Manzo.Idon't know who is advising him but he is coming off as a shill for the HCDO.By being point man in favor of dual office holding he is ruining his reputation as a reformer.

Or he just wants to run for Mayor in 2009 and still stay on as our assemblyman.Either way he's just gone down a few notches in my book.
