And keep in mind JC spends 25% more per student than the state average, graduation rates lag far behind the state average, and SAT scores are in the lowest 15% (not counting the McNair magnet school). Last year, all public sector unions EXCEPT the teachers, agreed to small changes to their platinum health plans. Those plans saw a slight just over 3% increase. The teacher Union refused and saw over 8%.

School shootings in JC 'seem to be imminent'? Stricter gun laws are needed? You do know NJ gun laws are among the strictest gun laws in the country (then again I'd bet none of the shootings near Ocean Ave were by legal, NRA member gun owners.

But contact the JCPD if you feel a school shooting is imminent.

Abbott is a court mandated program and not likely to go away soon. While some state financial support might get redistributed to more needy cities the bulk of state cash for JC schools will remain.

Yvonne, a rate of 1.62 is low. Mostly because JC funds so little of its school costs. JC taxes are a bargain.

Re: Reval - press request

@whoknew, what political reason made Governor Christie order the reval that was a couple decades overdue? He didn't order the one begun by the previous mayor. And the 'schlock' company was judged by several layers of NJ courts to be competent. Enjoy all the money you've saved over the years, but it's time everyone pay their fair share. A progressive like Fulop must agree, yes?

The takeaway is that people say everyone should pay their fair share, until they find out they have to as well.

A nice tidbit would be Mayor Fulop's house on Ogden taxes pre and post reval.

When the unions own the politicians it's not exactly bargaining. Luckily it seems the Supreme Court is about to take care of this-better times ahead!

Keep in mind for 2017 all NJ public sector unions agreed to some tweaks to their plans which kept their plan increase to 3.4%. The School Employees Health Plan Benefits Board refused-and its plan cost went up 8.4%.

The cost of health insurance for NJ teachers is 50% more than the national average, and NJ teachers contribute far less to this than the national average for teachers for their plans. It's due to the NJ teachers union gaming the political system to get a platinum plated Cadillac plan.

Enough. If you own a million dollar property you'll likely pay $16,250 in taxes. In most NJ suburbs that's a deal, because those taxpayers are sending $500 million each year to pay to educate JC kids.

I'm still gobsmacked how people who didn't care about the size of the budget, or how it was funded, have now found religion once they have to pay their fair share. Remember, the reval doesn't increase tax collections-it reapportions them according to present value, not the values of 28 years ago.

Since JC gets almost as much from other state taxpayers to support JC schools as its total budget it's laughable to say JC had high taxes, especially given the proposed 1.62 rate.

Rich you should be thanking Fulop. If your taxes go up, say, 10k his delaying the reval 4 years saved you 40k!

My 93 year old dad pays over 30k in the suburbs, because his town pays for 90% of its own school cost, in effect subsidizing districts like Newark and JC-which combined suck a billion and a half dollars each and every year. So DTJC owners now paying more, well it could be worse-you could pay more than 17% for your own schools.

Obviously public housing won't be affected, there aren't a ton of tax abated properties in BeLa and Greenville. 1.62% is still a gift, mostly because other NJ taxpayers pay for over a half BILLION of JC school costs. DTJC has been doubly benefitting from other wards AND other towns.

I don't know how continuing to overtax people in poor wards to support wealthier homeowners benefits them.

If anyone wants to fund illegal immigrants, hey, go to town. Just don't demand others do so, especially when we have plenty of people wanting to come here through our legal process.

And as far as DACA, our POTUS has made a great offer to those here illegally. The Democrats are being the obstructionists on this. President Trump's plan gives 1.8 million a chance vs the left's plan for 800,000. Who's being compassionate?

How is wanting to take care of your own 'hate in your heart'? Every kid here illegally costs 23K/year to educate. Money that could be spent on your own kids college prep, or vo tech programs. Why should we educate every kid from every poor country on the planet? Or provide billions in emergency room costs raising our own family healthcare costs?

Murphy is Corzine, without the sweater and the beard.

Fireman is still sore the economy tanked and he couldn't build all the luxury townhomes adjacent to his club, which was part of his original plan. I'm sure the marina and golf club expansion will revive the chances of that happening. Both Fireman and Fulop got stiffies when they thought they could ramrod the 90 story casino/hotel project at first-until Fulop did a 180 when it looked like the state wouldn't allow it.
