Mayor Jerramiah Healy......does not believe in the 25 years of service only with the city as it ?might preclude the city? from hiring employees from other municipalities with expertise for various positions.


Healy keeps rolling out that same excuse all the time. By now, we should have nothing but Rhodes Scholars and Nobel Prize winners running this place....

Healy will tell you not to think about this and instead try to focus on the first black fire chief and the first gay councilman and you'll feel better.

A former mayor of Naples, Italy once said regarding traffic lights, "Green means go. Avant! Avant! Red is only a suggestion and yellow is for gaiety."

Based on that criteria, you would then have half of Jersey city torn down.

Save that argument for where it's appropriate (i.e. Montgomery Towers).

Two bad omens.



If he gets his approval, just watch how fast the embankment disappears.

Then get ready to look at fallow ground for 10 years just like 111 First.

Someone needs to remind Healy it's supposed to be what the people are looking for, not what "we" as in Healy and 'his' Council are looking for.

EXACTLY! One only needs to look at JC and Hudson County and count the number of husband/wife, father/son or daughter "teams" that are employed to know that something stinks.

A few "family" names I can remember off the top of my head that fit the above category are:

Gaughan
Flood
Healy

I know there are several more.

Just watched the video and I'm not sure if it was a campaign video for Ms. Wintner or Mr. Balcer.

I did not hear any new ideas or solutions, just a re-hash of what's wrong, which I already know.

Esther, I wish you luck, but I want more.

I also read in the JJ today where they expect to have a 10% budget surplus this year.
