Re: HUDSON COUNTY DFA ENDORSES MAHDI HEMINGWAY AND VERNON RICHARDSON FOR JERSEY CITY BOARD OF EDUCAT
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have brought this post back because i think the DFA is the right group to get behind downtown.As opposed to all the different and diverse groups that we have downtown, each with its own agenda,the DFA is a political org. with a political philosophy that actually encompasses all the ideas of most downtown organizations.
We should organize a DFA chapter downtown as a means of forming a voting block that can compete with the city hall machine.
With that said i am voting for the DFA backed candidates in the tues. school board election.I urge everyone to do the same and pick the third candidate of their own choosing.
A thousand downtown votes would rock City Hall on its heels.

Re: School Board Election -- Anyone Got a Clue?

I to got the steven Fulop e-mail and i like that someone is willing to point out the problem in the system.
Every year the teachers union picks candidates and the administration lets them have the seats.How can the school board be responsible to the taxpayers when it is beholden to the union.All the candidates mentioned in the Sue Mack e-mail are union backed.
In a city of 240,000,less then 5000 people vote in the school board elections.If we wanted to send a message to city hall on a host of issues like taxes,crime,the embankment,abatements etc,why not show up on tues.and let them see thousands of votes come out of downtown.This is a great opportunity to show strength.
Steve fulop has bucked the system time and time again so i am willing to give his candidates a shot.
Mahdi Hemingway is an especially good choice as he can really relate to the kids who need someone who has been through the same system as them.

Re: Ordinance for Security Cameras - Steven Fulop

I think that most of the new buildings are installing cameras anyway,what this will do is make everyone use the same brand that will be compatible with the police dept.system.
This way if the doorman is watching the monitor and see's something going on he can call the police and say "check camera 619".At least that is what i hope this ord.is for.
If you just take the two buildings being built by the Grove street path and install cameras on each corner, that would be a great help.They should also install signs that tell people that this area is under surveillance.
This is a very simple thing that can have a big impact.It is important that Fulop comes up with idea's to improve safety since he is the one complaining about the police upper management.Smart move.

The next election coming up is a school board election in april.Less than 2000 people vote in these elections.This would be a great place to test your idea.If even 1000 people came out from downtown,city hall would be shocked.

I don't care how the issue got to the this point but i am glad it did.
When the Times does that big a story the developers will take notice.Their wasted money in the real estate section will cause them to start calling the mayors office and withholding their campaign money.Now you will see him get off his ass.
As people home shoping complain to the realtors so the realtors
bitch to the developers ect.ect.
I did notice that Troy seemed to blame Healy in a small way.

that guy has a great blog
With the constant press reports of Troy and his cronie's,i don't know how the mayor can keep him around.This week the Jersey Journel did a story on how the state police are investigating Troys buddy Lt Comey for his security side jobs.

Re: OPEN JERSEY AVENUE TO LIBERTY STATE PARK!!

I would love not to have to drive all the way to johnston ave to go to LSP.Open up the road and put restrictions in place.make it one way into the park that way you would split the traffic with the bergen laf.area.There is no way i would let my wife use that path as it is now.Our downtown parks our congested and opening that road would help a lot.

Re: Fulop Calls for Resignation of Police Chief Robert Troy

Todays J.J. story on the G.A. where Chief Troy called Steve Fulop a chicken was the most unprofessional thing i have ever read.This man is in charge of 85 million dollars of our money and he uses a newspaper to call an elected official names.What does Healy have to say about this and why is he not commenting about the G.A. being in town.

The minute the G.A. start patroling your city you have admited failure.We have an 85 million dollar police budget,they can do the job but the management need's to change.They need to do a nation wide search for a police chief like most big city's do.Red beret's belong in camden not newark ave.It is time for the police brass to stop spinning statistic's and just get the job done.

Is there no ethics board that can look into this.Is there even an ethics board in Jersey City.Who would appoint the member's?

It's more than obvious the councilman has greater ambitions. I see this as nothing more than using a bad situation to gain personal acclaim.
Wow.What personal acclaim can he get.I think he's friggen nut's to take on the police chief.This is J.C.where corruption is legendary and having that many cop's mad at him is dangerous at the very least.
Perhap's his ambition is to simply have the man do his job.As someone else on this thread wrote,we are seeing an increase in police activity and public dialogue.3000 people have read this thread,are they not talking.
I belive he saw a bad situation and is trying to fix it.
