Joshua I’m speaking for myself not the candidates. They have run a totally positive campaign and good for them. If I had been writing their campaign messaging you would know it.

However the question posed was who do people support and why? I support 4,5 and 6, because the other side has aligned themselves with the Board President.

I don’t think Sudhan Thomas has been a good Board President, for a lot of reasons. First and foremost I think it was unethical to fire Dr. Lyles staff without notice and opened the district up to legal action.

https://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... cials_signal_lawsuit.html

Also his own personal financial problems make him unfit to hold the role as Board President.
https://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... rd_president_lawsuit.html

And if that weren’t enough I hold him at least partially responsible for the teachers strike. He had ample opportunity to send the teachers contract to mediation and didn’t.

So those are my reasons. I’m sure you will have a rebuttal and yes I was a part of Parents for Progress but have nothing to do with Jersey City United so you are wrong again there.

Latest poll shows Menendez pulling away from Hugin.

People dislike Hugin. He's as big a liar at the president -

Hugin's TV ads set a new standard for sleaze | Moran
Updated Oct 31; Posted Oct 31

By Tom Moran tmoran@starledger.com
Columnist, The Star-Ledger

When Bob Menendez was indicted on corruption charges in 2015, I wrote an editorial calling on him to resign. It was awkward, because his office is across the hall from ours in downtown Newark, and we share the same bathroom. Relations have been a bit tense.

So, I'm surprised to be writing that it's his opponent in this race, Republican Bob Hugin, who is running the sleazier campaign.

Hugin is running TV spots that suggest Menendez patronized child prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, a charge that's been debunked as a vicious lie by every fact-checker on earth. I'll break that down shortly.

But the low road seems to be helping Hugin close the gap. Public polls still show Menendez with a lead of about six points, on average. But campaigns conduct private polls much more frequently, so they can detect changes more quickly.

I keep hearing from Democrats who are terrified that the gap is closing. And the Cook Political Report, probably the most respected oddsmakers in American politics, now calls the race a tossup.

"It's not like Bob Hugin's campaign fed me a line," says Jennifer Duffy, who handles Senate races for Cook. "It's hand-wringing Democrats who are saying it's not as good as people think. I made that call on the basis of Democratic data."

So, given that the prostitution charge could flip the race, let's take a look.

The latest ad opens with a young mother cradling her infant daughter as images of Harvey Weinstein flash on a TV screen in the background. We hear the mother's voice, as she pulls her baby close.

"Reading this sworn FBI affidavit containing allegations that Menendez traveled abroad to have sex with underage prostitutes, one thing became clear: I'll never be able to explain a vote for him, to her."

That affidavit she refers to was presented in support of the FBI's request for a search warrant of the offices of Dr. Salomon Melgen, which was granted. He was later convicted of Medicare fraud, and it now in federal prison.

But the affidavit does not charge that Menendez patronized under-aged prostitutes. It says only that an anonymous tipster made the claim.

That informant, we learned later, was a liar. You may remember that the first charge of prostitution surfaced in 2013, when three adult women in the Dominican Republic charged on video that Menendez paid them for sex. They later recanted, saying they were paid to make bogus claims.

Who would have paid those women to lie? We never found out.

But it was the same anonymous tipster who told the FBI that Menendez patronized child prostitutes. He refused to reveal himself to the FBI or sit down with agents to discuss the charge, which kills any surviving scrap of his credibility. The FBI sent agents to the Dominican Republic to be thorough, anyway, and found no good evidence to support the charge.

The Catholic Church Is Sick With Sex
Outside of condemning adulterous behavior, Christ never said anything about whom you could love.

One pope was a father of 10 through multiple mistresses, a man who purchased the papacy with mule-loads of silver. It is said that Alexander VI, the most debauched of the Borgia pontiffs, elected in 1492, even had an affair with one of his daughters.

Another pope contracted syphilis during his reign — a “disease very fond of priests, especially rich priests,” as the saying went in Renaissance times. That was Julius II, known as “Il terrible.”

A third pope, Pius IX, added Flaubert’s “Madame Bovary” and John Stuart Mill’s book on the free market economy to the Vatican’s List of Prohibited Books during his long reign in the 19th century. He also formalized the doctrine of papal infallibility.

What these Holy Fathers had in common was not just that they were badly flawed men putting forth badly flawed ideas: At the root of their moral failings is Catholicism’s centuries-old inability to come to grips with sex...

Looking forward to the gruesome statue being replaced by a park. The Star-Ledger Editorial Board agrees that it should be moved.

How to talk to your kid about the man being impaled on Jersey City's waterfront
Updated May 7; Posted May 7

By Star-Ledger Editorial Board eletters@starledger.com
We don't need to be our kids' best friends, but it's nice to ask your little one about his or her day while strolling along Jersey City's scenic waterfront.

The "man being stabbed in the back," though, is one subject many parents prefer to put off while their child is still in preschool. What do you say when it inevitably comes up?

No. The answer is, you shouldn't have to talk about a 34-foot-high man getting impaled on Jersey City's waterfront.

The statue was unveiled at Exchange Place in 1991.

On this, reasonable people can agree: The soldier with an enormous bayoneted rifle sticking out of his back is perhaps the most gruesome statue we have ever seen.

It memorializes the massacre of 22,000 Poles by the Soviets in 1940, some buried in mass graves in the Katyn Forest.

This, we should never forget. We memorialize atrocities so they are never repeated. We are horrified by this, just as we are by the people shot at Tiananmen Square.

But we don't necessarily want to see a statue of a man with his head being blown off along the Jersey City waterfront, either.

Still, prominent Poles were offended when a developer renovating the waterfront suggested the statue find a new home, because it's "a little gruesome."

This has since blown up into an international incident, Terrence McDonald of the Jersey Journal reports, and a top story in Poland.

The Polish artist who created the statue, Andrzej Pitynski, called the developer a "schmuck."

"After 30 years some businessman with big money comes and he tries to dictate," Pitynski told the Journal. "Who this f***ing guy is? The hell with him."

The speaker of Poland's Senate, Stanislaw Karczewski, said the idea of relocating the statue is "scandalous," and "a very unpleasant situation for us."

Jersey City's mayor, Steve Fulop, hasn't said whether it will be moved permanently - his preference - but fired back on Twitter that Karczewski is a "joke," a "known anti-Semite, white nationalist + holocaust denier" with "no credibility."

He added: "The only unpleasant thing is Senator Stanislaw. Period."

Back to the statue. The head of the group that commissioned it, Krzysztof Nowak, thinks we should design the entire waterfront park around it.

"You want to put a couple of benches around the monument? Put a couple of benches around the monument," he said.

Another option would be not to design a major city park around a man being impaled, and instead, move the statue to a museum. Anyone?

Poland's ambassador, Piotr Wilczek, also thinks the statue should stay where it is. Bayonne's mayor, seeking re-election in a city with a sizable number of Poles, offered to take it.

Here's where we stand: Respect the Polish and teach your kids about Katyn - but please, don't put a man being impaled in front of the New York City skyline.

from the article:

There was one self professed HUGE winner -

‘I dodged a bullet’

Yvonne Balcer, a longtime critic of the city’s tax abatement policies, said one of the homes that saw the largest increase downtown had formerly been hers.

“I dodged a bullet,” she said. “I sold my home six years ago.”

She said her former home saw taxes rise by 300 percent, from $16,000 to $41,000 per year. The assessed value went from $210,000 to just over $2.5 million.

“That could have been me,” she said.

The assessment company predicts that the biggest impacts will be felt downtown, while residents elsewhere in the city – in particular the Greenville and the southernmost part of the city – will actually see sharp declines.

Greenville, the West Side and The Heights, including areas such as County Village and Society Hill, may see decreases when the final numbers are released.

Community activists have long complained that residents in poorer neighborhoods have been paying too much in taxes, artificially subsidizing lower taxes for residences downtown.

Although the numbers throughout the city have yet to be fully released, Councilman Michael Yun predicts that Jersey City Heights – which was hit hard in the last revaluation in 1988 – will not be as negatively impacted as downtown was.

“The Heights are still an attractive place to move,” he said, suggesting that a trend that started well before the revaluation of residents moving from downtown to The Heights might increase as the results of the revaluation push people out downtown.

The problem is that downtown residents may not be able to sell their properties as easily as they might have before the revaluation.

In some cases, pending sales of properties were held up in order to see what the new taxes would be.

“This is bad news for everybody,” said one local real estate agent. “People looking to buy here don’t look at neighborhood by neighborhood, they’re thinking Jersey City, and this revaluation is saying Jersey City is too expensive.”

No, Biggoron converted the PDF to xls, and the PDF had fewer listings.

I love the xls, great for analyzing the data, but I reckon most homeowners, at least the ones that post on these forums, don't know how to use a spreadsheet. Too bad the appraisal company doesn't offer PDF and xls formats.

NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY.COM) - Municipal officials in Jersey City, New Jersey, haven't taken a look at property values in 30 years. It means some have been paying more in taxes than they should and others have been paying less. And trying to fix the problem has created another mess.

Dolores Renner, a resident of 74 years, is so afraid for her future that she was speechless. She learned that her taxes

They got the spelling of the last name wrong, correct spelling is Rennar.

Her property is -

-Acreage .0574 - 25' x 100' which is large.

I have no idea what her financial situation is, but she owns a 3 family house downtown...

The assessors are going to have a lot of explaining to do once all the numbers are published.



Did the one is the worst condition allow the appraisers into the home? If not, that might explain the disparity.


Yes all 6 let the inspectors in. The worst one was rated below the others at the time.


Also, to have a successful property tax appeal, the assessment has to be off by 15% or more -
