Re: ‘Massive’ $120M budget shortfall is subject of special Jersey City BOE meeting

In other words you can’t support your statements, and attempt to deny the proof I offer in links to state provided data, lol. BILLIONS of dollars. Luckily even NJ Democrats are beginning to insist JC taxpayers begin to pay their fair share.

Here is the state list of tax rates for suburban Morris County. Compare those numbers to JC, whose rate is much lower at 1.540. The difference is mostly that suburban towns get a tiny amount of school funding back from Trenton.

For one year, JC taxpayers received $575 million for schools from Trenton. The link above shows previous years, showing JC has gotten BILLIONS from state taxpayers, while paying well under 20% of the costs of educating its own kids.

Can you provide a link proving your claim that JC sends more $ to Trenton than it receives? Because I proved mine with data from the state database.

Much of sales tax in JC is half the state average at 3%. Do you really think Newport Mall generates anything near what the Mall at Short Hills or Riverside Square does,
lol? And the dollar stores and bodegas in JC compared to, say, downtown Summit or Rudgewood or Princeton? Anyone thinking JC contributes more to Trenton than it receives back in school support, Section 8 funding, etc has no grip on reality. In school support alone JC has gotten BILLIONS from suburban taxpayers. And the result are some of the worst schools in NJ.

And the local schools that suburban taxpayers fund through local real estate taxes is because they get a pittance back from Trenton (from their income taxes and sales taxes) because towns like JC and Newark get BILLIONS.

Bayonne residents pay more than twice what JC residents do. JC needs to pay its fair share. JC has bled suburban taxpayers of billions of dollars to support its schools, which are awful.

JC taxpayers pay such a tiny percentage of the school budget it shouldn’t be much. And JC residents will still be umdertaxed by NJ standards, by the tax assessment per $100,000 of home value.

Because Obama did such a great job with the swine flu pandemic-not declaring a national
emergency till six months in. Cuomo, DeBlasio, and his health commissioner telling everyone to go out and about, attend the Chinese New Year parade, go to movies, restaurants, and clubs that led to NYC being the top killing zone in the US-b-b-b it’s our President’s fault?

Magnet schools should be ranked with other magnet schools, not to those who accept all. What are the rankings for JC’s regular schools?

Based on prior constitutional mandates and court decisions, the BOE is correct.

And it was state law that a) imposed a property tax cap and b) required all PILOT payments to be made to municipalities. So don't blame the district for underfunding.


Towns can ask for cap rises over 2%, and no city (including JC) was forced to give PILOTS at all, especially in non distressed areas like the JC waterfront.

JC schools have been playing with house money for decades, and given that it is Jersey City we can only imagine the graft and waste. Now that JC taxpayers will have more skin in the game, will they demand reform and transparency?
