Healy and his cronies are cowards that wouldn't step foot within a mile of the waterfront. Last year we had a rally at city hall to protest their crimes. They do not serve the city, but many in the older residential areas of the city, and lower income areas, have been duped into believing the criminals that make up the Healy slate do not destroy this city with every breath.

It's happened to me a few times and the last time about 6 people jumped in front of me. I asked them if they realized I was standing there first and they said "We have to go to a meeting" and I told them that we're all busy and just because they can't time manage and leave earlier for their important meeting, doesn't mean they can cut people in line.

Jerks.

They may or may not be jerks, but you're confused. They don't need tickets--they use their company id's. So if someone cut in line getting their ticket, it wasn't from Goldman.

Jersey City to Lay Off Nearly 300 Employees

By Shane Smith • Feb 11th, 2010 • Category: Blog, News

Hundreds of seasonal and provisional employees will be terminated on Feb. 26 as the administration attempts to rein in a proposed budget that has many residents fuming about a potential 25 percent property tax increase.

The city confirmed the layoff rumors this afternoon; it will send notice to the 280 affected workers Tuesday. The city predicts the move will save more than $1.3 million between now and June, the end of the 2010 fiscal year. Anticipated savings for the 2011 fiscal year are nearly $4.3 million.

So he's laying off a bunch of folks that avg less than $5K/year. That's like a dieter cutting out the cherry on his daily banana split, then wondering why he's not losing weight. Healy's a POS.

No, he's right. Political contributions aren't bribes.

It's like if I got stopped for running a red light and my defense was "cars aren't illegal."


It is not that simple. Political contributions, or anything of value, given to a politician (or funnelled to a politician's campaign fund) in exchange for a promise or something the "donator" might not otherwise be entitled to (such as favorable tax abatements, changing in zoning, etc) would be a bribe.

Any favorable treatment, or promise given by the politician, in exchange for goods, services, cash, etc., should be considered a bribe.

The problem/question comes in when someone just likes a politician, provides money to their campaign, and then receives favorable treatment (if you can believe there are such "innocent" donations). That is why the pay to play legislation essentially eliminates the middleground.

Healy can manipulate the stats any way he wants. I have a friend who's car was broken into twice. Came out and stuff was missing and the window broken. Didn't report it, since the cops wouldn't do anything anyway.

If everyone becomes apathetic like that, the crime rate will drop to zero.

From a personal perspective, following the news and events in JC, I think it's getting worse.

Cops: Three Jersey City people arrested after car with phony plates stopped

Three Jersey City residents were arrested in Bayonne Sunday after the driver was caught driving while intoxicated with her 7-year-old daughter in the backseat.

Officers conducting random license plate checks on 55th Street and Avenue B stopped Shannon Daniels, 22 . . .


No surprises here. Let me do the math. Mother 22, Daughter 7. How old was mother when she got knocked up? 14 probably? Given this, and her most recent arrest, I think it'll do her, her daughter and society some good if they just keep the mother in jail.

Kwadir Felton, 18, is charged with aggravated assault, attempted robbery and weapons offenses in connection to the incident at Dwight Street and Bergen Avenue in which he was shot by Jersey City Police Sgt. Thomas McVicar, officials said.

Felton then appeared at the driver's side window pointing the handgun at the officer who fired one round from his .45 caliber service weapon and the bullet smashed through the car window, striking Felton, Aseltine said.

Five men visiting Felton at the hospital last night were arrested on weapons charges and police recovered a gun in a car belonging to one of them, sources said.

When released from the Medical Center Felton will be transported to the Hudson County jail in Kearny, Aseltine said. Hudson County Superior Court Judge Fred J. Theemling Jr. set Felton's bail at $500,000 cash only.


That picture was provided by the family? Guess it was the only one they could find with bars behind him. He better get used to having them in front (and for good measure, let's put the rest of the lying criminal family behind bars--I'm sure there's more than the 5 arrested last night that belong in jail.).

Councilman Steven Fulop rips Jersey City as 'belly of the beast' for corruption

Councilman Steven Fulop rips Jersey City as 'belly of the beast' for corruption
BY Karen Angel
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Thursday, November 12th 2009, 9:25 PM


Photo by Kevin Hagen
Jersey City Councilman Steven Fulop, critic of political establishment, stands in front of City Hall.

The problems in Jersey City City Hall run deep.

In the recent federal sting that netted 44 public officials and others on corruption charges in New York and New Jersey, 18 had ties to Jersey City.

Among the 18 were six city employees and one elected official. And, according to Councilman Steven Fulop, "it's just begun."

"This is still unfolding, and some of those people are likely to share a lot of information with the government," said Fulop (D-Downtown Jersey City), who proclaimed himself an independent voice because he is the only Jersey City elected official who didn't run on Democratic Mayor Jerramiah Healy's ticket.

Among those arrested for taking bribes from a snitch posing as a developer were Jersey City deputy mayor Leona Beldini and council president Mariano Vega - people with "very high access," Fulop said.

"There's a culture of entitlement in New Jersey, and in many ways, Jersey City represents the belly of the beast. It's about self-service instead of public service," he said.

Several of Healy's allies were arrested for accepting funds for the mayor's reelection bid, but Healy was not charged, and has denied any wrongdoing. Still, there have been calls for him to step down, including from residents at an Aug. 4 rally of about 300 on City Hall led by Fulop.

Healy said he would "sign an executive order requiring all city directors and employees who participate in the development process to undergo mandatory ethics training."

But some skeptics were not convinced.

"It's hard to say if [Healy] can lead," said businessman Michael Yun, president of the Central Avenue Special Improvement District. "He's best friends with the deputy mayor."

Fulop said the mayor should enact such reforms as a "pay-to-play" ordinance targeting developers - which Fulop introduced in the council - and abolishing the practice of letting council members hold county jobs, as six currently do.

Healy responded that he has "directed the Law Department to review campaign reform in other states and other municipalities and to meet with local civic groups who are committed to pay-to-play reform."

Meanwhile, said Yun, "The city government should work hard to regain their credibility. They should understand that they should follow the rules and regulations before they tell the people what to do." kangel@nydailynews.com

Two things-win or lose, this political whore will be allowed to use the funds because this is civil, not criminal.

Also, $4K for legal fess is incredibly low, given the time that must've been expended. If she wins, she'll be giving them a huge city retainer.

There are lots of jobs that pay as much as a cop or even more. Would you rather have no crossing guard at all. They provide a service and skill for the well being of families.


Skill? Really,? I think a crossing guard is, at most, a convenience--for little children, a necessity. They don't work full days. They are entirely unskilled. In many towns they are volunteer jobs that the elderly take on to stay active. They absolutely don't deserve to be paid the same as someone putting their lives on the line every day.

Budget gap means salary losses but city gets 53 hires
Monday, October 05, 2009
By AMY SARA CLARK
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER
Facing a $40 million budget gap and imposing mandatory furloughs on most municipal workers, Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy has nonetheless hired 53 full-time permanent city employees - the majority of them new police officers - since he was re-elected May 12.

Last week, the mayor confirmed the city will institute 12 mandatory furlough days for all city workers except those in the police and fire departments. The furloughs will result in those employees losing 9.2 percent of their salary from Dec. 24 through June 30.

But despite these drastic measures, city officials insist the new hires were needed. Healy spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said that except for 28 new police officers, all of the new hires are replacing people who left positions that are necessary, according to department directors. She also said every hire has been approved by the state.

Because Jersey City receives millions in aid from New Jersey, the state requires the city to obtain approval for all new hires. The Police Department hired 28 new police officers at starting salaries of $30, 675, two non-uniformed "information officers" for $27,000 a year each, and a student assistant at $25,000 a year.

Ward C Councilwoman Nidia Lopez also came on board after the last election at $33,430 a year, and five new City Council aides were hired at $15,000 a year.

The law department hired a new attorney for $90,000 a year, and the city hired a municipal prosecutor for $39,000 a year. In addition, one cashier and two clerks for the Municipal Court were hired at $27,000 a year and two court bailiffs came on board at $27,000 a year each.

Health and Human Services got a new nutritionist, but that person's $28,000-a-year salary is paid for by a grant.

In addition, six crossing guards were hired at $30,675 a year, an automotive worker for the Department of Public Works was hired at $48,000 a year and a computer technician for the city's police communications center was hired at $43,000 a year.

The count does not include seasonal temporary employees that are primarily hired for the recreation and parks departments for the summer months, Morrill said. These workers are paid hourly and do not receive benefits.

Tempers flare as Jersey City officials debate tax abatement policy with critic

[from "The Jersey Journal," September 21, 2009, 10:42 p.m.]

. . .
The NJPP report gave the example of Sugar House, a 65-unit tax-abated condominium. The report says that in 2007, condo owners there paid a total of $695,477, 95 percent of it going to Jersey City. But if they had paid conventional taxes, they would have paid more than twice that ? $1,627,108, with $746,477 going to the city.

But Jersey City Business Administrator Brian O?Reilly challenged Bressler?s calculations, wielding their own calculations on four buildings ? 101 Hudson, 10 Exchange Place, Cali-Grove Street and Harborside Plaza 2 & 3 ? that recently switched from abatements to conventional taxes. He said in those examples, the city received an average of 31 percent less under conventional taxes.

. . .

But he said it was obvious that the presentation ?pushed some buttons? for the council leading to a defensive response. ?They addressed minor issues but they didn?t seem to put much thought into the issues in the report,? he said.

-- Amy Sara Clark


In case anyone didn't notice, O'Reilly (tool that he is) countered with only commercial property abatements that were truly used to get businesses over here. The residential really shouldn't be compared to commercial. Does anyone have more of an explanation for the differences in tax bases, etc.?
