Go ahead and ban me, JCList! This place is an anonymous board for paid trolls anyway. If you guys can't handle me, that's your problem.

John H. can certainly handle the constituent services end of the job very well. Rekha is a new voice that ought to be given a chance, too. You can't make any credible arguments why Journal Square should settle for less because your father would rather follow Yun's lead than Fulop's. Fulop is going to be mayor. The council will probably be 7-2 Fulop. What possible difference could your dad make then?

If he's driven by integrity, like you say, and not personal power and ego stuff, then he should withdraw. He knows that the council will be in the same position that it was. If he can't work with other council members, then do the hard thing and step aside. Journal Square deserves better than your dad's obstructionism and excuses. There's going to be a lot more people moving here. Is he really the best person to move Journal Square forward? He certainly seems stuck in its past.

If that's the best argument you can muster for your dad's candidacy, I'd urge him to leave the race.

Maybe Rich and his "integrity" should have run for an at-large seat again if he doesn't want to come through for the people of Journal Square. The person who holds the Ward C seat is supposed to work for us, for our best interest and for the people of Journal Square. This isn't a "nice guy" contest. There's lots of nice guys that aren't on the city council. If you or your dad can't come up with any viable reasons to give him 4 more years to do what he couldn't in the last 4, Rich ought to start packing up his office.

I don't care about inside baseball political stuff. I want results. If Rich isn't up to getting results for his constituents, then he should step aside and give someone else a chance. His list of accomplishments is flimsy. Excuses don't cut it.

Pershing Field is in the Heights, by the way. Maybe Rich should do something for parks in Journal Square.

The people of Journal Square deserve better than excuses. They deserve better than obstruction. Journal Square has suffered and been neglected because your dad listens too much to Yun. And has forgotten the people who sent him there. Journal Square deserves results. Is there any question that one of the other candidates would do a better job getting results?

Most of these aren't even his accomplishments! The people of Jersey City stopped that ambulance contract, not Rich. You helped countless constituents? That's the job. Yeah, that noise ordinance was his one accomplishment on the council. Big deal!

This list is even sadder than I thought it would be. 4 years he was on the council! Everyone should vote for John or Rekha. Rich had his chance, it's time for someone else who can maybe work well with others.

And if his political plan this time around is to simply call everyone else "rubber stamps" then I would tell everyone in Journal Square to vote for someone else. Being an obstructionist for the sake of being obstructionist, or as a campaign strategy to somehow run for mayor, gains Journal Square nothing. We need someone who can work with any council, and any mayor.

I voted for your father twice last time. I didn't vote for him because he was polished. I voted for him because I thought he would do a good job. I had no idea he was going to refuse to work with the mayor or anyone else. And I certainly had no idea he'd be walking around 4 years later going "Boo hoo, I didn't have enough friends on the council to get anything done." That's the ultimate dog ate my homework. Why should I expect 4 more years are going to make any difference?

How about some specifics? Specifically how is Journal Square better? What are your father's accomplishments?

I'm not interested in a "loyal opposition." Politicians find ways to get things done. This isn't the House of Representatives. And if your dad can't forge consensus, then it's time for him to move on.

Rich's job isn't to represent anti-Fulop sentiment in the city. His job is to work for Journal Square. I gave him a chance 4 years ago and my faith was misplaced. He listens more to Council meeting gadflies than his constituents. Is Journal Square better off than it was 4 years ago? If so, how?

Why is your dad's campaign littering my neighborhood with illegal campaign info on telephone poles? Rich doesn't work with anyone to make Journal Square better. The council will probably look the same! What does his grandstanding get Journal Square residents? Neglect!

I voted for him twice. His opponent lived in Florida. I find his constant grandstanding and lack of accomplishments disturbing. But of course he considered running for mayor, because why not?

Nah. I'm voting for Ali. I was gonna vote for you, too. But I find this post a little heavy-handed. I'll vote for de geise, Saleh and Lyons.
