Jersey City’s mayor has had enough of being verified on Twitter

The mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, has made the unusual request to have his Twitter verification removed. In a tweet posted this morning, Fulop said he wanted his account to return to its unverified status. “I kind of took pride in that,” he said, “it reinforced I shouldn’t take myself too seriously and just work hard in my job.”

On the face of it, Fulop’s request makes little sense. Twitter verification ostensibly just proves that he is who he says he is, and prevents other accounts from trying to imitate him. But that little blue tick (which, yes, is technically white if you want to get pedantic about it) signifies so much more than that. Whatever Twitter’s intentions, it implies you’re important, that you’re famous, or — most controversially — that Twitter has given you its tacit approval.

Lawsuit filed by ex-cop who once played a dominatrix has no merit, lawyers say

JERSEY CITY — A whistleblower lawsuit filed by a Hudson County sheriff’s officer fired last year because she played a dominatrix in adult films should be thrown out, lawyers for the county are telling a judge.

The ex-officer, Kristin Hyman, 32, claims the county’s investigation into her past was retaliation for her allegations that she had been sexually harassed by a sergeant, but she cannot prove that link, the county’s lawyers say in the May 10 legal filing.

Hundreds protest budget cuts, planned teacher layoffs at Jersey City schools

JERSEY CITY — More than 300 parents, teachers and students crowded inside School 26 on Monday night to demand Jersey City school board members find a way to avoid massive cuts to school staffing and educational programs.

The board was meeting to adopt its $638 million budget for 2019-20 at a time when the 30,000-student district faced a budget gap that exceeds $100 million and a cut in state school aid that totals roughly $30 million. The district in recent weeks sent out hundreds of layoff warnings to teachers and staff — during Teacher Appreciation Week — panicking district employees and parents.

Standing room crowd in Jersey City; No new fossil fuel plants; More electric vehicles

Standing up against climate change

It was a standing room crowd at City Hall in Jersey City last week. More than 200 people packed the council chambers on Wednesday, April 17. They were concerned. They came to learn about and stand up against climate change. By the end of the evening, they were ready to take action.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla opened the event by commenting on some of the innovative programs being implemented in their cities. This was followed by a panel that included a climate scientist talking about efforts to mitigate sea level rise, an urban environmentalist discussing the disproportionate impact of pollution and climate change on poor and minority communities, a youth activist looking at the impact of climate change on her generation and a leading environmental activist challenging the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to live up to its obligations.

Jersey City council pay would nearly double under new plan

JERSEY CITY — City Council salaries would nearly double under a long-discussed plan that could go before council members next week.

The proposal, distributed to council members on Tuesday, would hike base council pay from $35,298 to $65,298. The council president would get a pay boost to $68,354, up from $39,351. The new salaries would be effective Aug. 1.

Councilman calls for reform of Jersey City’s ‘broken’ rent control system

JERSEY CITY — Residents in Jersey City’s Downtown are losing out on affordable housing because the city’s rent control system is broken, according to a new report from the area’s councilman.

Landlords disregard rent control limits, tenants don't know they live in rent-controlled apartments and a loophole in local law allows developers to build luxury units where affordable housing once stood, Councilman James Solomon's report says.

Developer chosen to build hotel near Liberty State Park on land it does not yet own

Will a neighborhood on the outskirts of Liberty State Park become home to Jersey City’s next hotel?

That could be the case after the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency gave final approval to Landmark Developers to build the Morris Hotel on land currently owned by NJ Transit near Liberty State Park.

Landmark President Frank Cretella said Monday that his company has had talks with NJ Transit and Gov. Phil Murphy’s office aimed at acquiring the land at the foot of Communipaw Avenue for the 120-room hotel.

Reports of Menendez, Fulop friendship hugely untrue

Local reporter also gets Pascrell primary story wrong

By David Wildstein, April 26 2019 5:37 pm

A Hudson Reporter story that U.S. Senator Bob Menendez and Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop have “buried the hatchet” is not true, four Hudson County Democratic insiders told the New Jersey Globe, which sought to independently verify the report.

Al Sullivan’s version, attributed to “knowledgeable sources,” says that “while the two men will not likely ever become close friends, sources say that Fulop’s popularity in Jersey City is just too great an obstacle to maintain a political feud.”

“This shows just how much being the mayor of the soon-to-be most populated city in the state can help,” Sullivan wrote.

Any chance of Menendez forgiving Fulop ended when the mayor sat on his hands during the 2018 U.S. Senate race.   Fulop might want peace, but Globe sources suggest that Menendez has no interest.

Jersey City school board member alleges shenanigans regarding new teacher contract

JERSEY CITY — The proposed new contract for Jersey City’s public school teachers has led to dramatic allegations from a school board member who said he was purposely left out of the negotiations over the new deal.

Matt Schapiro, who has a hostile relationship with local teachers union officials, is accusing the board of acting illegally and unethically by approving the terms of the new contract even though most board members have conflicts that Schapiro said should have barred them from reviewing the deal, which teachers ratified on Tuesday.

Trump is ‘strongly looking’ at releasing migrants into sanctuary cities. New Jersey has several.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Friday he is considering releasing “illegal immigrants” in Democratic strongholds to punish congressional foes for inaction on the border — just hours after White House and Homeland Security officials insisted the idea had been rejected as fast as it had been proposed.

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only," Trump tweeted. He added that, "The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy - so this should make them very happy!"

Should inmates be allowed to vote?

Cunningham legislation would void an 1844 law

State Sen. Sandra Cunningham sought support from the Jersey City municipal council at the March 27 meeting for a bill she and state Sen. Ronald Rice Sr. are sponsoring that would allow New Jersey prison inmates, parolees, and those on probation — as many as 94,000 people — to vote.

State election laws prohibit inmates as well as those on probation and parole from voting. Cunningham believes these people are being disenfranchised. The bill she is sponsoring would allow them to register to vote, as part of an effort to rehabilitate them and prepare them for return to society.

While most European countries allow inmates to vote, in America only Maine and Vermont do. Voting rules are regulated by each state, not the federal government.

LeFrak sells Newport office tower to iStar Financial

The company that built the first new neighborhood on Jersey City’s industrial Lackawanna waterfront is selling a tower there for $160 million.

LeFrak is selling 570 Washington Boulevard, a 380,000 s/f office property in the Newport development to iStar Financial, TRD first reported last week.

The multinational securities company Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation occupies the entire office portion of the building as its headquarters, subleasing the space from J.P. Morgan Chase, which relocated to LeFrak’s 545 Washington Blvd. in 2015.

JERSEY CITY — A city attorney told City Council members last year that there was an external investigation into a recording that was at the center of contract-steering allegations during the 2017 mayoral race, sources with knowledge of the matter told The Jersey Journal.

Council members were briefed about the investigation during a closed-door meeting in June, the sources said. The council met for the closed caucus on June 11 to discuss the city’s contract with law firm Arleo & Donohue, a firm the city hired in 2014 for a Port Authority-related matter.

Man guilty of dumping his toddler daughter’s body in suitcase along train tracks

Nearly one year after the remains of a 23-month-old girl were found in a suitcase along a set of train tracks in Jersey City, the toddler’s father has been convicted of a grisly crime that could land him in prison for up to two decades.

Travis Plummer, 38, was found guilty Tuesday of the unlawful concealment of human remains following a week-long trial in Hudson County Superior Court. It took a jury less than a day to convict Plummer, who will face between 10 to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced next month, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said.

Deal in works to resurrect off-duty jobs for Jersey City cops

Jersey City and its police unions may soon reach a deal that would allow for the return of off-duty jobs for cops.

The two sides have been negotiating for months, ever since the two unions filed a lawsuit in Hudson County Superior Court in January seeking a return of off-duty gigs. Mayor Steve Fulop slashed all those jobs that month, citing a string of now ex-cops who admitted in federal court that the program was at the center of a no-show jobs and bribery conspiracy.

Jersey City police officer stole $600 from man during stop, authorities say

A Jersey City police officer has been indicted on charges he stole $600 from a city man during a stop more than a year ago.

Denzel Suitt, who joined the department in 2015, is charged with theft by unlawful taking, a third-degree offense, and official misconduct, a second-degree offense.

Authorities say that on March 25, 2018, Suitt was on duty and conducted a stop of a man who has been convicted at least nine times since 1993. According to the indictment, Suitt took $600 from the man.

Jersey City's 99 Hudson Soars As USA's Third Tallest Condominium

There’s a lot of hype about Hudson Yards, the recently opened complex that spawned a new Manhattan neighborhood. Rightfully so. It’s a game changer.

But the Hudson has two sides—New York and New Jersey. So far, there’s little fanfare about that other luxury tower, 99 Hudson—a 79-story condominium in Jersey City, directly across from the World Trade Center. It’s yet another prodigious example that Hudson River real estate is booming.

Soaring 900 feet, the in-progress skyscraper is billed as the tallest building in New Jersey and the “third tallest condominium” in the United States—in the class of Manhattan’s architectural icons. Such claims are virtually always disputed, but there’s no doubt it stands out on the Hudson’s other side. And judging by initial imagery, sometimes New Jersey views are better than New York City views.

Jersey City woman faces 30 years in prison after guilty plea in fatal stabbing

JERSEY CITY — A woman who was facing murder charges for stabbing a man in the face and chest has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter and faces up to 30 years in prison, authorities said.

Lateefah Rabb, 36, was initially charged with murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges stemming from an incident in October 2017, when she stabbed Carl Salisbury in an apartment on Academy Street — once on the left side of his face, twice in the back and three times in the chest.

Public should not expect legal opinions at JC council meetings

Jersey City Assistant City Attorney Norma Garcia told the Jersey City Council at the March 27 meeting that the city’s legal counsel will no longer answer legal questions raised by the public during council meetings.

Garcia said it was the job of her department to write ordinances and resolutions, but not to defend or to offer opinions about their content.

This announcement came near the end of the public meeting when many members of the public had left. But the declaration raised concerns among at least four council people about the legal department’s unwillingness to respond to the public’s questions.
