2 points of history

1. Every administration and council since Tony Cucci has been in love with tax abatements and very few abatements have been defeated.

2. Every administration and council since Tony Cucci (and probably before) has been threatened with recall soon after being elected or re-elected. None have been.

Good luck!

Re: Open Letter to Mayor Healy about Jersey City Schools

With GDCS moving, the students and staff and their families will all be severely affected. Some students will not be able to attend the school that they have grown to adore and Staff members maybe faced to look for other teaching opportunities outside of Jersey City.


Why? Do all the students live within walking distance?

From the Learning Community thread: "Also, since JC buses, if there is not a school bus that goes there, the parents are reimbursed for the transportation to that school. (the reimbursement is not just for charter/public schools, but even private or religious schools.) It's sponsored by the state."

Doesn't really seem like an insurmountable problem. As far as staff, if a move across town is all it takes for them to quit, I'd say their students' adoration is misplaced. LCCS families are following their school.

But if GDCS can't afford the rent, how are they going to afford a mortgage? Or do they expect the city to sell at a bargain price? If the city has to sell, I would hope it would be to the highest bidder if for no other reason than to pay off the bonds used to build it.

Taxpayers paid for the building, pay for the bonds, and pay for the school. Enough is enough.

"The debate will be taped and broadcast on Comcast Channel 190". Not getting Channel 190, I don't really consider that "televised".

Check out Pat's website (http://www.patsshows.com/) - the side menu has a link "Manzo for Jersey City" which takes you to a page that says:

"Louis M. Manzo has spent his entire life in Jersey City and his entire career working to make our area a better place to live, work and raise a family.
It's been Lou's personal mission to touch the daily lives of the public he serves. Accordingly, the door to his advocacy office is always open to anyone in need of assistance.

Check out his web site at manzo4jerseycity.com"

That's as fair and balanced as Fox News.

Whatever you think of Healy, no politician is going to walk into a setup like that.

I would like to begin this post by saying that I fully believed in Councilman Fulop since he first ran for councilman. While some might believe that I am politically naive, I trusted in councilman Fulops' pledge of "good government" that he touted before and during his term of office and trusted his representation that he would run for mayor and implement his good government pledge.
Over the years Mr Fulop has continually criticized and taken what I thought were principled stands against Mayor Healy's haphazard and incompetent administration of this city. However, recently Mr Fulop has broken his promises to run for mayor he has taken some curious and inexplicable actions with regard to his interaction with both Mr Healy and Mr. Manzo. Since Fulops announcement that he would not be running for mayor, Fulop has sudenly stopped dead in his tracks in his criticism of Mayor Healy and his administration despite its continuing ineptitude. He has actually appeared at a Healy event and has denied that this should be construed as an endorsement of Mayor Healy. Healy has even selected Guy Catrillo (a great individual but a weak candidate) to run against Fulop in ward E. All of these actions to me signal that Mayor Healy and Councilman Fulop if not actually conspiring to cede the Ward E council seat to Fulop, have at least reached a sort of political detente which will result in Fulop's acquisition of that seat. Fulop has even redirected his political venom from Mayor Healy and has now directed it at Mr. Manzo. I am especially surprised by the type and intensity of Mr Fulop's juvenile venomous rhetoric toward Mr. Manzo who he has labeled as "mentally unstable", "a paranoid conspiracy theorist", "Looney Louie", and as wearing a "tin hat". This coming from an individual running for public office in this city is unacceptable, and especially shocking coming from Fulop who was once victimized by the same type of venemous rhetoric by then JCPD Police Chief Robert Troy who labeled Fulop as "Chicken Little" the sky is falling Fulop. Chief Troy has since been relegated to the dustbin of history but now Fulop has adopted his vicious temperment. One would think that after being similarly abused Fulop would exercise better judgement.
Taking into consideration all of the above it seems to methat the facts seem to corroborate Manzos version of events than Fulops whose version seems to conflict with his current political interests. Since Fulop eventually wants to be mayor it is logical to conclude that he would rather run against a candidate with Mayor Healys record and notoriety than against a candidate with Assemblyman Manzos credentials. By adopting this strategy Fulop, for personal gain has decided that the people of Jersey City can put up with four more years of Healys incompetence rather than achieving his proffessed goal of good government through collaboration with individuals of simiar mindset. In Short Fulop has put his personal interest before those of the citizens of Jersey City. There is no room in good government for those who check the political weather vane for which way the wind is blowing and that is why I can no longer believe in or support Mr Fulops candidacy. My father once told me that when someones actions are contrary to his words that I should look to his actions for final definition of his intentions. Your actions and words follow divergent paths and your actions indicate that you are a political opportunist. Mr Fulop you have let your constituents down in your quest for personal advancement and that sir is simply unforgivable.


You gotta be in it to win it. Being the brave reformer who never compromises and loses the election is a load of crap that accomplishes nothing. Fulop is doing what he has to to maintain his political career.

As for his remarks about Manzo, those were stupid and immature (although very likely accurate) and he should have known better. Ah, youth.

I don't remember him "promising" to run for Mayor, but when you compare his $250,000 and a ragtag band of clipboard wielding activists against Healy's $1M and professional operatives, it was a no-brainer not to try for Mayor. He would have lost and been out of the game for at least 4 years. Ask Bret Schundler how easy it is to get back in. Bret who? Exactly.

Part of the problem, I'd imagine, is the company can't afford to hire reporters with little experience or...well...that fire in the belly that drives reporters to do investigative or enterprise reporting. Some folks at the paper seem to have it and others don't.

But what I'm getting at is the paper can't get better if people aren't supporting it. As readership has declined, so has its ability to support a larger staff, or -- another estimation -- attract more seasoned reporters.


A bigger part is that the JJ has never demanded the same sort of accountability that everyone everywhere suddenly seems to be clamoring for. Throughout my history of reading the JJ, I always find myself thinking "they're asking the wrong questions", "why don't they follow up?", and "why are they letting him/her off the hook like that?". And that applies to ALL of their reporters, including the well-past-his-prime Earl Morgan, whose prime, frankly, wasn't all that.

Civic activists through the years have taken the initiative and time to learn how city government works (and you can always tell from their posts which have and which haven't), is it too much to ask that someone whose job it is to report on government do the same? Apparently at the JJ, it is.

No the JJ's wounds are self-inflicted, and subscribing or buying more copies just encourages more mediocrity (although at times, aspiring to mediocrity would be a step up for the JJ) and delays the inevitable.

Yes, it's always unfortunate for a major urban area not to have an experienced, reliable, unbiased source of news, but in Jersey City's case, we haven't had that for many, many years.

I wouldn't judge JC's activists by their support or lack of support of the JJ. It's been the activists who for years have been calling for the paper to improve its coverage of local politics AND activists. And it's been the JJ that refused to follow through - activists don't buy ads, I guess.

As for imagining the 2nd largest city in NJ without a paper, how would it be any different? It's been years since we've had a real one. Except for the comics, that rag won't be missed.

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. .

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).

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...

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.


It would be nice to have some specifics and please don't refer us to ELEC reports and "no need to go into details", because without those details it's just "he said she said".

On the other hand, the councilman's unwillingness or inability to work with his colleagues on the council has made downtown less powerful than it should be in local politics.

Gathering signatures and threatening a referendum worked once, but it's no way to legislate effectively. Neither is being on the losing end of 8-1 and 7-2 votes but being able to say "I was right". Politics is about results, not (sadly) principles.

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"


Don't forget:

Healy cost the Cunningham team a clean sweep of at-large seats (beating Carl Czaplicki, I think).

Manzo threw his support to Cunningham in the 2001 runoff, expected to be part of the team, and got shut out by Glenn's handlers.

Fulop was recruited by Glenn to run against Menendez after Glenn's handlers decided that he should be top dog in Hudson County and that it was alright to call Menendez (arguably his most powerful supporter) a "domestic terrorist".

Fulop supported Manzo against Sandra Cunningham for Glenn's state senate seat.

O, what a tangled web. But always entertaining.

A true cynic would think that Mr. Joshua was backed by the HCDO or Manzo to siphon off voters from Fulop's demographic. Look at the field so far:

Steve Fulop: strength of incumbency, lots of support and cash - his to lose

Jaime Vazquez: former councilman, latino, purple heart veteran - not without some appeal

Guy Catrillo: artistic type, deep roots - not without, admittedly eccentric, appeal

Joshua Levitt: yuppie, environmentalist - probably has some friends (maybe secret ones )

Frank Scalcione: run on sentence creator, incoherent message board poster, clueless pizza maker - but still a hometown boy

We still have to hear from Manzo, Smith, and Levin. AND, no one has turned in petitions yet.

Depending on turnout, the result or runoff could be decided by only a few hundred votes.

Don't be cynical - embrace the insanity
