Re: Dan Levin in talks to run with Healy

Here's what Dan Levin says about it in an email to supporters and former supporters sent today.

Dan Levin to run with Mayor Jerramiah Healy

A little over three years ago, my wife and I moved our children into our local neighborhood public school. We took what was perceived as a risk and received a lot of scrutiny from our downtown community. Our children thrived at PS 37 and now with our oldest at MS 4, not just educationally, but socially. Our children are developing into strong students and building their own relationships in our community.

After managing a successful school board campaign in 2010, the next year in 2011 along with a few other active public school parents, I worked with and supported a public school parent leader from another part of Jersey City, one with a professional background and the daily experience of actually sending her children to our public schools. We bucked the mindset of the downtown community then and took a lot of heat for our efforts. Elected this past spring 2012, she joined the school board and was instrumental in bringing our new superintendent to Jersey City.

Now, I am running for the Ward E council seat alongside Mayor Healy, perhaps again surprising our downtown community. While I have disagreed with him on some high profile issues over the years and this move may initially appear to be politically risky, I am firmly committed to an established set of public values and goals that I believe can be achieved by working with the incumbent mayor on behalf of the residents of not just downtown, but Jersey City as a whole. As your Council representative, I believe that there are numerous ways that we can work together to stabilize taxes, address public safety concerns, contribute to improving public education, create more public spaces and provide a much better quality of life for all residents.

LOL!

Nobody I know believes Dan has suddenly become corrupt. But his flip-flop on Healy's record and into Healy's camp is disturbing. I would like to hear Dan himself give an answer on that.

That?s why Mayor Healy has won so many people over. That?s why he won me over. And that is why I am proud to join the Healy Team.?


This would have been a good story for April Fools Day. Instead, it's sad and disappointing.

Apparently the Gov was in town yesterday (Tuesday).

Christie praises family success centers

Does anybody have any experience with the Family Success Center? What the heck was this about other than a photo op?

Re: United Water to shut down aqueduct in Jersey City for maintenance

My block had a water shutoff this morning. A United Water truck was outside messing with the hydrants. Surly United Water employee said to call their office.

After a long wait the United Water customer service rep said they're doing work and will have brief shutoffs all over the city, but that customers were supposed to be notified. Who was supposed to notify us? Either the Mayor of the MUA, they weren't sure, but it's basically the same thing since the Mayor's buddies are the Municipal Utilities Authority.

Another example of city government performing at its peak.

Westside Animal Hospital is professional, caring, and affordable. They're very clear about pricing and working with you to get a treatment plan you can afford, and they don't apply pressure if you need to choose a less expensive option.

I've tried others and both me and my cat are happy here. (Cat's never happy to go to the vet, but you know what I mean...)

Brummer's was great. My grandparents would take me. I'd usually get a root beer float, and a sundae was a special treat. The were also a candy store, some of which was homemade.

When I heard it was closing I went back for a last visit - bittersweet. A lovely place and great memories.

The flowers looked great this year. I'd like to see some of them go into small places, medians, etc, where you can get a surprising bit of color to brighten a location that's drab or you'd never notice without the flowers.
