Re: Cunningham Asked About Director Shea During DWI Arrest

Sen. Sandra Cunningham cleared of DWI one year after Jersey City crash

Prosecutors on Thursday dropped a drunken-driving charge against state Sen. Sandra Cunningham, ending a yearlong legal battle after she crashed into parked cars in her hometown of Jersey City last March. 

Cunningham was found guilty in Bergen County Superior Court of careless driving, however, and was ordered to pay a fine of $170, the court said. 

Her attorney, Michael Rubas, and prosecutor Linda Schwager did not immediately respond for comment Thursday. 

Cunningham, the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate, was driving a 2013 Infiniti on March 4, 2021, when she struck two parked cars on Culver Street. Police arrested Cunningham and charged her with driving while intoxicated and careless driving.

Planning Board OKs Exchange Place Pedestrian Mall two weeks after rejecting it

The Jersey City Planning Board has approved plans to transform the area around iconic Katyn Monument into a Downtown pedestrian mall, just two weeks after rejecting the exact same plan.

On April 26, the planning board voted 6-0-1 against the Exchange Place Pedestrian Mall, which would sit on the eastern end of Montgomery Street from Hudson Street to the waterfront. Planning board members sided with about a dozen speakers who were concerned over safety and designs around the Katyn memorial.

Mayor Folop statement on Abortion in Jersey City

Home away from home


By Steven Fulo  -  This city in New Jersey will expand access to abortion | OpinionpLike many of you, I was appalled to learn the U.S. Supreme Court is prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade, which will eliminate the constitutional right of women to control not only their bodies but also the future trajectory of their lives.As a husband, father and elected official, I understand that preserving and expanding access to abortion care is central to achieving true reproductive justice. I pledge to continue advocating for reproductive rights, including state and federal legislation codifying a woman’s ability to control her reproductive choices and bodily autonomy. And for the Jersey City residents who I serve, I also want to reaffirm my administration’s unequivocal commitment to lead this work through local programs and policies that support and expand access to sexual and reproductive health care.

Former Jersey City schools superintendent’s ‘boat check’ up for vote by ed board again

After putting it off in February, Jersey City school board members once again are being asked to approve a roughly $200,000 “boat check” to former Superintendent Franklin Walker, who retired in December after 48 years in the school system.

The board of education, who will vote on April 28, tabled the whole lot of sick time and vacation payout approvals when the resolution included Walker the first time around, according to board documents. It is unclear why the school board decided to table the monthly check-the-box resolution that is routinely approved because the payouts are mandated by contract.

Jersey City Planning Board rejects Exchange Place Redevelopment Plan

By Daniel Ulloa/Hudson County View

Jersey City Planning Board Chair Christopher Langston noted their vote on the plan was non-binding, while Commissioner Joyce Watterman, also the council president who sits on the Exchange Place Alliance board, recused herself.

Board attorney Santo Alampi noted it is a Section 31 review whereby the review is limited in scope.

“We are proposing a pedestrian plaza. Three years ago, when we began this process… the area surrounding the Katyn monument was essentially a parking lot,” said attorney Donald Pepe for the Exchange Place Alliance. He also sits on their board.

The mayors of Jersey City and Hoboken are working on a plan to connect the city in a way the Hudson County neighbors have never been connected before: protected bike lanes.

Responding to a Bike Hoboken tweet, Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla Thursday confirmed that preliminary work is underway and Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said Jersey City’s 18th Street bike lane will connect with Hoboken’s Observer Highway bike lane by creating a protected bike lane on the section of Marin Boulevard.

Off-Duty Cops In New Jersey Can Now Use Recreational Weed — And Some Cities Are Concerned

Off-duty police officers in New Jersey can now legally use recreational marijuana after the first sales in the state began last week.

Since 2012, 18 states and the District of Colombia have decriminalized recreational marijuana, but when New Jersey passed legislation last year to legalize recreational weed, no prohibition carve-out for police officers was adopted.

“Anyone 21 and older can now legally buy weed in New Jersey. And, at least according to the law as written, that includes police officers,” Fox 5 New York reported Friday.

Some municipalities said they will continue to stop law enforcement officials from using recreational marijuana as Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop plans to continue testing his city’s police force for weed and firing those who test positive.

‘Outraged’ by racist rant by Jersey City teacher, McKnight calls for youth mental health counseling

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

“I am outraged by the racist rant that students at the Academy 1 Middle School in Jersey City had to endure this week. This is sad and sickening. Our students shouldn’t have to endure racism in our school system where they are supposed to be learning, not being ridiculed,” McKnight said in a statement.

“Teachers and other leaders of all races and ethnicities have to understand and be accountable for racist acts. This is one reason why I reintroduced AR53, legislation declaring racism a public health crisis. Racism is never acceptable and especially not toward our children by people they are supposed to trust, such as their teachers.”

Another part of Jersey City’s West Side is getting a makeover, with 3,000-unit project leading way

Route 440 on Jersey City’s West Side, currently home mostly to car dealerships, autobody shops, and empty lots, hardly looks like a vision of Jersey City’s future.

But big things are in the works for the area, specifically the Westview, one of the largest, if not the largest, projects in the Northeast, according to Jordan Franklin, chief operating officer of its developer, Bushburg Properties.

The Westview will bring 3,000 units of luxury housing to the area between Route 440 and the West Side Avenue Light Rail Station at Claremont Avenue.

Fulop: Jersey City Won't Put 'Arbitary Limits' On How Many Retail Cannabis Businesses Can Open

JERSEY CITY, NJ — With New Jersey’s recreational marijuana marketplace officially set to open, Jersey City officials say they remain committed to keeping an open mind to the state’s budding new industry.

Shortly after the state's announcement Thursday that people age 21 and up will be able to legally purchase cannabis without a medical card starting April 21, Mayor Steven Fulop said in a tweet, “Missed opportunity by not doing on 4/20.”

April 20, or 4/20 is often marked as a significant day in the cannabis culture.

Jersey City police union president blasts superiors’ union leader for ‘cozy’ relationship with administration

The president of the Jersey City police officers’ union blasted the new president of the superior officers’ union, claiming his “cozy” relationship with the city administration is hurting the hundreds of rank-and-file officers in his union.

In a March 31 letter to Police Officers Benevolent Association (POBA) members obtained by The Jersey Journal, president Joe Cossolini said the appointment of Andrew LaBruno from second vice president to president of the Police Superior Officers Association after Morgan Torres stepped down “is a major problem because LaBruno is clearly serving the interests of (Public Safety Director James Shea).”

Jersey City officials discuss potentially utilizing speed cameras to help reduce hit-and-runs

By Daniel Ulloa/Hudson County View

“We’re calling on you to develop a speed camera pilot program in Jersey City. We want to ensure it is fully government-controlled. No private contractors,” Colin DeVries, a board member of Safe Streets Jersey City, said at the City Council Caucus Chambers yesterday.

He cited a study done in Montgomery County, Maryland that saw speeding drop 19 percent when a camera was installed, also noting that the New York City Department of Transportation controls their own speed cameras.

“In understanding the economic impacts resulting from the pandemic, we will look to the developers to fully fund the construction of a two-platform, ten car above-ground station, with minor modifications to existing tracks previously constructed in anticipation of this extension,” Fulop said in his February 1st letter to Peter Simon, the chief of staff to PANYNJ Chair Kevin O’Toole.

“As discussed in recent years with the developers involved, we are confident that the proposed development in the area will pay for the necessary capital improvements … The Marion PATH Station would provide a critical juncture to tens of thousands of our residents and commuters to complement and extend Jersey City’s existing public transit infrastructure while filling the gaps in areas that need it most.”

A career criminal who admitted killing in 2014 in a murder-for-hire scheme orchestrated by a prominent New Jersey political operative was sentenced Tuesday to 96 months in federal prison in an unrelated bank robbery that year in Connecticut.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer sentenced George Bratsenis, 73, to eight years in prison during a hearing in a New Haven, Conn. federal court after Bratsenis pleaded guilty in 2019 to committing the armed bank robbery in Connecticut, his home state.

On March 22, a day after the $955 million school budget was approved, the administration took a shot at the “bloated salaries” of district leadership, saying district officials and the board “have not looked at any common-sense changes that have been recommended to them for years.”

Seven Jersey City retail cannabis applicants received planning board approval during a special meeting last night, setting them on the path to do business in the city.

The applicants are spread out across the city, and if approved by the city’s cannabis board and state regulators, would be among the first line of retail marijuana stores in the city to open up following the legalization of marijuana in New Jersey last year. The stores would be located in neighborhoods such as the Heights, Journal Square and Downtown.

Put brakes on rushed calls for speed cameras in Jersey City | Opinion
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


Put brakes on rushed calls for speed cameras in Jersey City | OpinionBy Kendall MartinThe year 2021 was a bad year for pedestrian casualties in the state of New Jersey, and Jersey City in particular. Statewide, there were over 200 pedestrians killed, 14 of them in Jersey City. This issue cuts very close to home for me since some of those fatalities occurred on Kennedy Boulevard very near where I live. With that in mind, I was very motivated to attend the Dec. 16 meeting on this topic at the Gallo Center, which was set up by county Commissioner Bill O’Dea, city Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey, state Sen. Sandra Cunningham, and Colin DeVries.There was a lot of emotional testimony from the audience, which demonstrated the passion this problem engenders in the community. However, what was missing was any hard data or analysis to prove that speed cameras are the only solution and that this is something the majority of the residents of Jersey City want. As a result, there was a lot of pressure directed at our state senator to craft legislation to allow speed cameras in Jersey City.Although the meeting was open to the general public, most of the participants were from neighborhoods bordering Lincoln Park. The composition of the audience wasn’t diverse enough. We need input from all over the City. There is a lot of lobbying being done in favor of this plan, but this is something that should be decided in as wide and open a forum as possible. A follow-up meeting scheduled for Feb. 17 was subsequently postponed, and is now scheduled for next Thursday, April 7, at City Hall.I learned a lot at the December meeting, but I was also left with a lot of questions about the process going forward, in terms of implementing speed cameras in Jersey City. So, I did a little research to better understand what was, and more importantly, was not being proposed or mentioned at the time.First, the installation of these cameras in Jersey City, which is currently illegal, is an ad hoc solution that bypasses the Vision Zero Task Force and Plan. The immediate questions that come to mind are, “Why should we do that?” Second, “Is the Vision Zero Plan a failure?”On Feb. 9, 2018, Mayor Fulop issued an Executive Order implementing the Vision Zero Initiative as part of a plan to eliminate traffic-related deaths by the year 2026. This resulted in the formation of the Vision Zero Task Force, which consists of representatives from 10 city departments, Bike Jersey City, and Safe Streets Jersey City. Their mandate was to meet quarterly, develop the Vision Zero Plan, coordinate with law enforcement on its implementation. In addition, they are supposed to regularly provide crash data and statistics to the public and produce an annual report of what was done along with the progress being made. The 2020 annual report was released last year in April, so we should anticipate the release of a new one next month.A specific part of the Vision Zero mandate from the mayor was for the task force to focus on the issue of equity so that none of the solutions incorporated into the Vision Zero Plan have a greater negative effect on one community in our city than another. Speed cameras would implement a regressive form of taxation that clearly would not be focused on “equity.” The Vision Zero Task Force didn’t include them or even a proposal to change the laws regarding cameras in the Vision Zero Plan when they had the opportunity.There are 70 specific things in the Vision Zero Plan and many have already been implemented. Do we know what impact they’re having? One very important part of the plan is the development of two High Injury Network (HIN) maps, one for the county roads and one for roads maintained exclusively by Jersey City. Everyone was supposed to focus on these areas to dramatically improve safety for pedestrians in them. I have not found any references to a police task force being dedicated to the enforcement of the plan. Does one exist? How many of the fatalities that occurred last year were in the HIN areas? Did speed play a significant factor, or were other factors the real causes? Did the police and county sheriff step up enforcement of speeding and other traffic laws in HIN areas? Was there a significant increase in the number of summonses issued in them? Based on data gathered through the Vision Zero Plan, should the HIN maps be expanded?At the Dec. 16 meeting, the police stated an effort has been made to maintain traffic patrols on parts of Kennedy Boulevard from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. unless higher priority calls pull those resources away. What police action is taking place in the rest of the HIN areas?Is the Vision Zero Initiative, with a target date for its success of 2026, already failing? Should more money and dedicated police resources be budgeted and allocated to ensure its success? Are speed cameras the only solution to keep it from imploding?The next meeting has been set for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 7, at City Hall, 280 Grove St.Given the impact that such a law would have on all Jersey City drivers, what is being done to reach out and notify not just the affluent citizens, but also lower-income and communities of color to solicit their input and opinions?Kendall Martin is a resident of Jersey City.https://www.nj.com/opinion/2022/03/put ... -jersey-city-opinion.html

Jersey City to Host Parade for Saint Peter’s Following Men’s NCAA Tournament Run

Jersey City, the home of Saint Peter’s, announced Wednesday a celebratory parade will be held Friday to commemorate the Peacocks’ historic run in the 2022 men’s NCAA tournament.

Saint Peter’s became the lowest-seeded school in NCAA tournament history to reach the Elite Eight in March. As a No. 15 seed, the Peacocks upset No. 2 Kentucky, No. 7 Murray State and No. 3 Purdue. They eventually lost to No. 8 North Carolina last Sunday to end their Cinderella story.

To celebrate the amazing run by the Peacocks, Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop will host a parade throughout the city before finally ending on the Saint Peter’s campus.

Saint Peter's becomes first No. 15 seed to reach Elite Eight in NCAA tournament history

(CNN)It's likely that before this month, many sports fans had not heard of Saint Peter's, a university in Jersey City, New Jersey, with an enrollment of 2,637.

That's all changed now if you've been following the men's NCAA tournament. The Saint Peter's men's basketball team has made history by becoming the first No. 15 seed to reach the Elite Eight, upsetting the No. 3 seed Purdue Boilermakers 67-64 in Philadelphia on Friday night.
Guard Doug Edert said the team was energized by the crowd.
"We had a great crowd today," Edert said. "The whole environment, it was just unreal. I don't think any of us were nervous or really cared about how many people were there watching us. We just went out there and did our thing. We've been doing what we've been doing all season, which was defending and playing as hard as we possibly can. And then the emotions at the end, again, we're making history and we look forward to making more history."
The Peacocks, the third No. 15 seed to advance to the Sweet 16 in history, will face either UCLA or North Carolina in the Elite Eight on Sunday. This is the program's fourth NCAA tournament appearance overall.

At 73, He Adds New Jersey Hit Man to His Criminal Résumé

Published March 23, 2022Updated March 24, 2022

George Bratsenis shuffled into a New Jersey courtroom in shackles last month, an old-school hoodlum with thick glasses, white hair and a forearm tattoo.

Court is a familiar setting for Mr. Bratsenis, 73. So is prison. His Tarantino-esque odyssey spans at least three states and Canada and includes the killing of a drug courier known as the Turk, ties to organized crime and a bizarre failed jailbreak bid.

This court appearance was the result of his having been implicated in a murder-for-hire case involving a veteran campaign consultant that many in New Jersey’s political class think could grow into the state’s next big public corruption scandal.

The consultant, Sean Caddle, had admitted to arranging the killing of an associate who was found fatally stabbed in his burning Jersey City apartment in May 2014, and he had named Mr. Bratsenis as his hired hit man.
