Just remember,the first seventeen people who were promoted all went to a 500.00 a head party hosted by Armondo Roman just before they were promoted.
The money was supposed to be for healys reelection but after Earl Morgan at the JJ did a story on it all the money was returned.

Bottom line here is that Armondo Roman is a Hack appointed by Healy who is way over his head.He should have
never have been appointed as he lied on his resume about the fact that he was arrested for desertion from the military in 1976.

Re: Fulop to face new challenge in Ward E

Home away from home


obviously have hoped not to have them run against me but I cant control this and I dont discourage it of course. Josh in particular was a closer working relationship, who I knew of through mutual friends for sometime, was very involved in the BetterJC initiative, and was even part of a large group vacation I went on, so it is slightly different/more meaningful to me personally but I keep the same statement regardless on all candidates. As I said in the newspaper on Frank, Guy, Jamie, and Josh - generally speaking I know these people personally and say "more people the better as it creates a better dialog". Generally. like the JC Independent reported on Josh none of the candidates who have declared to this point are surprises because some have conveyed to me prior their intentions and all ofQuote:

Headed for an early run and figured i would comment on this one. Firstly, thanks for the positive statements - i am extremely appreciative and it is encouraging. Over the last four years I sometimes wish that I kept a diary of happenings on the political front so I don't forget any of these lessons when I am out of politics although I think the last 2-3 months have been the largest learning experience for me on politics in general in Jersey City.

I would prob say 20 of the "volunteer/political friends" I had decided to leave our team and join one of the mayoral campaigns that they were opposed too within 24 hours of me saying that I wasn't running for mayor.... Many of them have their own personal agenda that they conveyed as their rationale after the fact that is beyond me nor would I have entertained requests had I declared that I was running for mayor. With that said, similar to Josh, I would suspect we will see 2-3 more council candidates based on conversations I have had with people who volunteered when they thought I was possibly running for mayor whom have told me in the past in meetings that they had interest in running for council - I would them I have known before they declared.

In reality, of course I would prob have the easiest time with the smallest field to run against but as I said in the Jersey Journal last month with regards to Healy, it is not my choice.

Hope all is well and info is helpful

Council member,

This has been my problem with you for close to 4 years. From your first entrance onto the local political scene, you have criticized and denounced others for their alliances, when you are guilty of the exact same thing. Even your ELEC reports reads the same as those you attack. Perhaps, at the beginning, people in downtown were willing to cut you some slack for being new to the game or wet around the ears, but in hindsight, with 3 1/2 years behind you, there are no excuses for your choice of alliances. It's a bit hard to swallow such excuses, when you continue to make the same bad judgment calls, and then ask us to believe that you have been "duped", "had" or victimized by these people. Please don't pee on my leg and then tell me it's raining. You're not that stupid, and neither are we.

We both are privee to the names of many of the upfront and behind the scenes players and their histories. Your last campaign introduced us to some that I never heard of until certain events happened?(no need to go into details). It sickens me that you still remain aligned or entangled with some of the worst of them to this day. I would be among the first to gladly tip my hat to you if you demonstrated true independence and kicked them all to the curb, but I'm not holding my breath.

You seem to be somewhat sincere and kudos to you for owning up to the fact that you may have been aligning yourself with people that had their own personal agendas, but it seems a bit late to have this sudden insight into the reality about Jersey City politics, as what you speak about above was self-inflicted.

Your silence on some major Ward E issues has become deafening, perhaps because of these alliances. If you had checked your ego at the door four years ago, and placed keeping your campaign promises to the voters ahead of promises to your alliances, you might have had a more productive and effective term in office when it came to those original promises. Although past performance is no predictor of future results, you've got alot of work ahead of your to turn things around.

I wish you the best of luck. It's never too late, unless you no longer want it...






Pinky you have had a grudge against Fulop since you and JR got beat four years ago.Please tell us what Fulop has been so silent on.As for peeing on someones leg,you must be talking about Steve lipski.You wish no one the best of luck because your a bitter person who thinks she knows better than everyone else.

Correct again Ross,You always have the history to fall back on.
My point was the same,it's politics in Hudson County.Todays friend could be tomorrows enemy.No crying in politics.


Better to just be careful who you let into your circle.I think Fulop
is now getting a real eye opener in politics 101.

My two cents.
I think a lot of people who both like and dislike steve Fulop were shocked that he did not run for Mayor.These same people had their eye on his seat and would have jumped in with both feet because it would have been an open seat.
Its obvious that some don't want to wait for Fulop to move on.

Some of these people were probably in the Fulop camp hoping to get the seat when steve ran for Mayor.I know more than a few who are now actively working for Manzo but were long time Fulop
supporters.

This is Hudson county after all and nothing surprises me.Healy was elected to his at large council seat on Lou Manzos ticket.
So that means they were friends once,no?

Like someone else here said "you can't make this stuff up"

Gaughan has at least Four family Members on the County or City payroll.Two county or City Cars with Gas plus he has an exclusive
contract to bury any homeless person in Hudson County thru his Funeral Home.Sixteen years is enough for any one council person.
VOTE JIM CARROLL.

So after Six months of Schundler bashing healy "crime is up,City is going in the wrong direction etc etc"they are going to put Schundlers wife on the ticket.Smacks of desperation.

Is Schundler so desperate to become relevant again that he will run his wife for a council seat.Its a long way from when he was on the cover of time magazine and was touted as a possible presidential candidate.

We have not had a decent Police Chief in Years.It has been one political hack after another,hired more for their ability to hang campaign signs then their ability to lead a police force.Chief Comey lives fifty miles away.
The chief and his family should deal with the same issues that we all face everyday.

There should be a nationwide search for a Chief like Bill Bratton or
Ray Kelly.The candidates for Mayor should be asked who they would pick for Chief as it impacts all of our lives everyday.

Mr. Rogers four days ago your praising Jim Carroll as can be seen above from the above posting done on January 14th, now your ripping him and insinuating he be a conflicted councilman. This is why politics s____ks, a family man like Jim Carroll integrity is now going to be questioned by you because you don't like it that a couple of posters feel that Steve Fulop should support someone for mayor.

Posted on: Today 6:25





Hey jmanny are you a jerkoff or just a troll for Manzo.I praised Jim Carroll and have not changed my opininion what so ever.

Just because i said that Ross knows his history does not mean i changed my mind.Where in my postings am i ripping jimmy.
Your constant whining about how Fulop should Back Manzo is the Equivalent of manzo slapping Posters up all over downtown.

By the way you still can't use the QUOTES for shit.......

Fulop has to step up to the plate here. We have a reform slate (so far) under Manzo


OK, I got this far, and I have to take issue with the claim of "reform". Let me first say that (with the exception of Jimmy King), I will accept the premise that Manzo's slate consists of upstanding citizens. But here's the problem, and it's the exact same problem that many of the other council members have: 2 masters.

Jim Carroll is an active duty cop, who will take a leave of absence if he's elected. Is it plausible to believe that he will really be able to take a tough stand against the police when it comes to voting? Would he be able to vote against police contracts filled with goodies at taxpayer expense? Or will he abstain? How does that serve Ward D?

Lori Serrano is a school district accountant. One assumes that she won't be taking a leave of absence since city council doesn't pay a living wage. Is it plausible to believe that she will really be able to take a tough stand against the board of education when it comes to voting? Her case is even more problematic that Carroll's. And as a former Jersey City Housing Authority chair, Ms. Serrano is certainly no newcomer to JC politics.

As for Jimmy King, the very idea that he brings reform is ludicrous. Remember who he supported last time (while running as an independent for Ward C)? Surprise, it was Healy. Don't forget his time at the Parking Authority (http://www.talkingpolitics.net/JCPA.htm). From the site: "Early in Smith's term, several new commissioners were named to the JCPA. Those commissioners first suspended King, then initiated an investigation into activities allegedly involving JCPA spending, hiring a forensic accountant and an attorney. The investigation also probed allegations that King - who had the authority to hire and fire staff - handed out promotions to JCPA personnel who were members of his civic association."

Don't get me wrong - most of the sitting councimembers have similar situations. It just seems to me that calling this a reform slate just because the candidates, up until now, haven't held elected office, is a bit of a stretch. They're relatively fresh faces, but they seem to know their way around the block.




Say what you want but Ross knows his history.Why some are pushing Fulop to get on board so early is beyond me.File day is March 19th.Never know what will happen.

So Carroll's a police sergeant, an attorney (more than likely on the city's nickel), is running for paid political office, and the Gaughan's are milking the system?






Carroll is a police officer who will have to take a leave of absence to be a councilmen.He does not have any legal work with the city nor county.
The gaughn family on the other hand have at least six jobs and three free cars with gas in the family.Big difference.

I have read that the special interests and firms that had loaned his previous Gubernatorial campaign the $ 180,000.00 don't even want their money back. HMMMMM, wonder why, does "pay to play" ring a bell. Sorry, just thinking out loud. Oh, by the way has Schundler found anyone that will run for council with him?






Omar can you tell us one single candidate that Manzo has on his ticket.Both he and Scundler seem to be staking their whole campaigns on getting Fulop on their side.A very weak strategy indeed.

1) Yes I agree, Louis Manzo would have made a better State Senator than Sandy Cunningham, and Louis Manzo would certainly make a better Mayor than Jerry Healy.

2) I disagree with you that the attributes Louis Manzo displayed in the Assembly would not be translate into a succesfull Mayoral term.

Furthermore, Louis Manzo seems to have a work ethic and a commitment to Jersey City, and HE IS SOBER. Jerry Healy has been an embarrasment to our city and hopefully he will be removed by the voters.





Omar this is how we reply to other people here.Its called a quote,makes it easier to follow along.

I never said Manzo would not make a good Mayor,i have known him for twenty years but he tends to be a little quirky and is a much better legislator than an adminstrater.I also don't care for his association with Ex Mayor McCann.

That being said i have by no means made up my mind but you may want to try the soft sell over the strong arm sales pitch.

What is the Rush to jump on board the Manzo bandwagon.
The file date to run is three months away.Many more people may consider getting in the race.

Brewster makes an excellent point.Steve fulop has plenty of time to evaluate Manzo's platform along with whomever else decides to get in.

I really like Steve Fulop and what he has done as a councilman over the past 4 years.

What do you think the chances are that Fulop would come out in support of Manzo? If I recall correctly, didn't Fulop support Manzo for the Senate a couple of years ago? I don't know too much about politics but this seems like it could be a good partnership.





I think he endorsed Manzo over Sandy Cunningham which is a no brainer.I would vote for Frank the Pizza man over Cunningham.
Fulop should worry about himself now as he must be Target number one on Healys hit list.

While he is a nice guy and step above what is in office,he has a real hard road ahead.No organization,no Candidates to speak of and very few workers.


His only shot is to make a Deal with Fulop for his support and Candidates and workers,otherwise he is toast.

Anyone here think Fulop should back Manzo?
