There is nothing that needs to be argued here when a letter of support is written for a councilman that advocates for the closure of Dickinson High School and building a new one on the south side of the city. That would leave Wards C and D without a High School. Boggiano may a a nice guy, but he needs to retire before he does some irreversible damage.

Do you really think these corporate, Wall Street barons have made these donations because they want to help Jersey City Public School children? Since when did the billionaire barons who took down the economy start to care about poor and working class families and children?

THIS IS ABOUT our $660 million budget and the 40 schools (prime real estate). They have an agenda to outsource our public school jobs, privatize our education and sell-out our schools to for-profit, private "education firms."

WAKE UP, JERSEY CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL teachers, parents and community!

I have a bad feeling it was an appeasement and not really a meeting. But I did like the idea of requiring carpooling during the construction period. instead of a full closure.

I was talking to a friend who works for the city who DID NOT get a phone call, and he was really upset. He really wanted the chance to blow the whistle on the mayor's "high ethical standards."


I am sure the chance will still come.

Rumor has it that every union which has interviewed both candidates has chosen Fulop.

All the Healy endorsements come as insider deals.

Or so I've heard. Perhaps somebody from one of the unions or from the campaigns will go on the record about that.


This explains a lot.

Easy to say when you can afford the rent. There are jobs out there that are quite important yet pay a pittance. Are you suggesting a social worker go for a higher paying job just for the money? That being the case, no social workers would exist and the system would be a mess. Then people like you would be un an uproar because the city let kids slip through the system. The solution? Higher taxes to pay for higher salaries. Oh wait, you're looking for your Bush tax cuts and lower property taxes. When you sit down with someone who is honestly having a hard time times making ends meet, (not a career welfare check casher) then talk to me.

My understanding is that these units weren't for people on public assistance, but working people whose incomes fell below a certain threshold. Most often they're people like teachers and fire fighters. The unit next door to mine was an affordable unit and the guy who lived there was a social worker. He was a decent, hard-working guy and certainly a better neighbor than the douchey hedge-fund guy upstairs who threw loud obnoxious parties and whose guests left the lobby a mess. I daresay my social worker neighbor worked harder to earn his living than the hedge fund guy. So, no, I don't begrudge him the below-market apartment. To me, it was more than fair: he did a job for the city that few of us would want to do at relatively low pay. The least the city could do was offer him an affordable shot at living in the community he served. But this was NYC, I don't even know if JC has anything even remotely like this.


Not to throw this off topic again but that is the exact attitude that independents like myself hate from extreme liberals.

So you deserve luxury housing at a discount if you're a firefighter or a teacher? How about a soup kitchen worker or a daycare provider? So should Mother Theresa get free housing? How about a doctor that saves lives? How about illegal immigrants who actually do the jobs no Americans do - maybe they should receive everything for free. Which committee chooses who gets what for a discount?

You may not believe it but you sound exactly like a Republican who wants to decide who gets married. Just as prejudiced and downright racist.

So we should just crucify all hedge fund guys? How do you know he wasn't hard working? Was his name Bernie Maddoff?

And in response to JPHurst - regardless of rentals or condos, they are all below market value.

Again, affordable housing in luxury condos/rentals is like feeding the poor with caviar - its' downright dumb and the definition of social engineering. If you hate a group of people, whether they be immigrant, black, asian, OR RICH, you are prejudice and also slightly jealous. Go get a job to earn enough to live with the "douchey hedge fund" guys instead of bagging on them. It'll be better for the economy.

Your missing the point of affordable housing. Keep on making high price rents and people of lower income wont be able to afford ANY housing which is arguably discriminatory.
