Sorry, I tried to do it as clearly as possible. But I couldn't do it with a formula, so maybe this will help:

Total # of people who voted in the at large race DIVIDED by two PLUS one = the number that the highest vote-getter in the at-large race has to get to avoid a runoff.

Not everyone has to achieve that threshold, just the highest vote-getter.


It seems many people didn't realize they could vote for more than one candidate. If everyone who voted for a Fulop slate candidate had voted for all three, there would probably be no runoff.

"Aside from proximity" reminds me of "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?" Our location is the key to the future of this city just as it was the key to the past in the industrial/railroad era.

Remaining a hidden gem sounds nice, and let's face it--we're never going to pull much business or tourism away from Manhattan. But "buzz" does help. Look at Brooklyn. Also press attention puts pressure on the government at all levels to keep honest and manage the city effectively. As much as I respect our local newspapers, they don't have the reach of the Times.

Does state law require that there be runoffs for council seats? It seems like a waste of time, money and voters' patience.

I hope that in the coming discussions the reval is always referred to as the "Healy Reval." Otherwise people will blame Fulop because it happens under his watch.

I was going to start the same thread. Not only is JC the largest city that borders NYC, it is also closer to Manhattan than most of the rest of NYC. But to the august institution, we're just another Yonkers.

Would any other big city newspaper completely ignore it's largest neighbor? Would the Times ignore Newark?

Judge tosses Healy lawsuit
#12
Home away from home
Home away from home


So much for the latest Healy-manufactured "scandal"

A judge has denied an injunction and dismissed the complaint filed by the campaign of Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy claiming that an outside group was colluding with Healy's opponent in the race for mayor of the state's second largest city.

Healy had alleged that Better Education for New Jersey Kids was acting in concert with the campaign of challenger Steve Fulop, which is against state laws governing campaign finance.

According to the complaint, the outside group used snippets of Fulop's commercials in its own ads, leading to the collusion charge.

A spokesman for the group said the suit was nothing more than a distraction.

"Today was a victory for the kids of Jersey City," Executive Director Mike Lilley said. "The court's decision confirms that there was no factual basis for the Healy campaign's allegations against Better Education for NJ Kids. Filing a suit at this late date was merely an attempt to distract Jersey City voters from the real issues in this election."

He has been called out on it. His response was to use the photo twice on his next mailer. Once as the portrait on a fake $100 bill and then, on the back of the mailer, enlarged to take up one entire side. I guess they figure Healy voters don't care about his character or are too stupid to notice.

Absolutely not! You are not a troll.

You are obviously a Healy campaign operative with a laundry list of talking points, most of which are lies.

One the one hand Healy accuses Fulop of some absurd, Rube Goldberg plot or something completely ridiculous (suppressing votes in Ward E, for example). Then you run ads saying "Fulop has been accused."

On the other hand we have Healy on videotape acknowledging an illegal contribution from a developer whom Healy tells will get his applications acted on first. His closest associates are indicted and are today in prison or dead by suicide. And you write Healy has "never been accused?"

I'd be impressed if I weren't so disgusted.

Of course I have an interest in the election. My family all worked for the city as I grew up. I am the first to not work JC, but of course there is a lot riding on this election

If you read my post, it is what I think will happen. I have a lot more harsh opinions on Fulop but by posting them, all that will happen is that I will get banned or get ignorant responses back.

It is merely a prediction.

I think what many of the "interlopers" don't understand about what is going on in this city is that the regular person who is from JC dislikes what you are about. Many of you don't realize that many of you come off as trying to force your ideals on everyone because you know better, you are smarter etc. JC people don't go for that

Lets see what happens Tuesday. I honestly don't think Fulop has a chance at all period. The internet war that has been waged by the Fulop people is entertaining, but it will not win elections.

A wise man told me - "Healy voters don't go to debates and they don't post on the internet, they just show up to the polls"

If you look at todays rally, there are plenty of people looking to go to the polls for Healy


So you're going to vote for a corrupt, inept mayor to show how much you don't like people who think they are smarter than you?
That's pretty sad.

Go Healy

I am glad that the end of this election cycle is coming. It has been a hard fought campaign on both sides. Unfortunately it got ugly at the very end, but the tension between the two candidates has been boiling for a few years now.

My prediction:

Healy wins first ballot - 53 Healy 44 Fulop 2 Walker 1 Malik

A - Epps destroys Gajewski - seems like Fulop camp gave that one up already anyway

B is a close one. Definite runoff but Meyers takes it as JJ endorsement of the independent hurts Chico and Meyers takes it.

C Rich Boggiano wins handily - Healy also wins big in C

D Connors wins in a runoff, cant figure out vs who though. Healy protects his home turf

E - Osbourne wins although Levin makes it a close one.

F - Runoff - Toss up - I take Robinson

At Large - Brennan Richardson and Lavarro win handily.

It just seems that to this voter - the fact that Fulop came out with an agenda so early, but then resorted to the ultra negative campaign at the end hurt him badly. I know many people who are sick of it. It has seemed to backfire in this area of Ward B.

If you read the proposals, many of them are not practical and they just seem like pipe dreams. I applaud him for his effort, but I don't think that he is the one to lead us. I have met him on a few occasions and he seems very fake and into himself. I don't see a genuine nice person in him.

The B4K issue has come back to bite him also. They can distance themselves from it all they want. If that was the case than a cease and desist order would be necessary to stop them from advertising on their behalf. Instead there are $2600 donations from Teppers wife and lots of lies. It is obvious that privatization is the goal of the Fulop campaign. If it wasn't, B4K would not be an issue

See you in 2017 - I think


I think you are a bit more invested in this than the simple Ward B voter you claim to be. Nice technique-posing as an objective observer, expressing concern over issues entirely made up by the Healy campaign. I don't think people are nearly as easily manipulated as you seem to believe. We'll know soon enough.

P.S. If you are going to write as a disinterested observer just giving an honest account of how you see things, choose a different name.

Total nonsense. Not one shred of fact to support that claim. Healy's campaign literature now calls Fulop a Republican and put Mitt Romney's face on their attack ads. This is also untrue. Fulop has always been a Democrat. They know it is not true. They don't care. They will say anything.

Nearly 6,000 more Jersey City registered voters since Nov.

By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal
May 10, 2013 at 1:46 PM

With few days remaining until Jersey City?s quadrennial election, the city has nearly 6,000 more registered voters than it had in November, with the highest number of new voters living in Ward F.

The re-election campaign of Mayor Jerramiah Healy concentrated its voter-registration efforts in Ward F, a swath of the inner city that is largely African-American and poorer than the rest of Jersey City.

Of the 5,851 new voters in Jersey City since November 6, 22 percent, or 1,280, are in Ward F. Ward B, which encompasses the city?s West Side, has the next highest number of new voters, 1,113.

Healy?s campaign believes high turnout in Ward F could be one their keys to victory on Tuesday, when voters are tasked with selecting a mayor and all nine City Council seats. But mayoral hopeful Jerry Walker has been targeting Ward F, too, hoping that his popularity in the Bergen-Lafeyette community will lead to a large show of support for him.

Healy, who is seeking a third full term, is in a tight race with Councilman Steve Fulop, his longtime rival. He also faces a challenge from Abdul Malik.

Fulop?s home base, Ward E, which encompasses most of the Downtown, saw a small increase in registered voters, 835. The only ward with fewer new voters is Ward C, 823.

The nonpartisan election is Tuesday, May 14.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... _city_r.html#incart_river


Can someone explain to me why people in Ward F would vote for Healy? Why would he calculate that a high turnout there is good for his campaign? Has he been buying votes? A plan to stuff the ballot box?

We are writing to support Dan Levin for Ward E City Council. As supporters of Jersey City's art community, we feel that Dan has a stronger record of advocacy for the arts in Jersey City than any other candidate currently running in the 2013 municipal election.

Despite the high number of artists and performers living and working in Ward E, many of downtown's best known cultural institutions have disappeared in recent years. Dan Levin understands the need for local government to take a stronger, more forward looking role in maintaining downtown's unique cultural institutions - as well as encouraging new arts related development that will help Jersey City realize its potential to become the arts center of New Jersey.

Dan has worked tirelessly downtown for over a decade as an advocate for historic preservation, open transparent government and stable taxes, and has been a visible supporter of the arts. Dan offers an ethical, experienced, and independent voice to the Jersey City Council, please consider voting for Dan Levin this coming May 14.

Candice's team wants to use public funds to turn the Loews theatre into a performing arts center. Dan's team wants to let it decay until it is replaced by condos.

I hope everyone reads this. I disagree with 81905 that only people on the Healy payroll are going to vote for him. Whatever is motivating them, there are enough Healy supporters to keep the race close. I imagine much of his support involves resentment of the "interlopers" downtown.

Got to admit, it takes some chutzpah to run for Mayor while on disability. This answers the mystery of why he is running. He has nothing else to do.

Edit: Just after writing this I got a robo-call from Dr. Malik. His chief argument for support is "I am not a career politician."
