Re: JC teachers who made 99K or more in 2019

My salary was private, it did not come from the public and did not affect anyone's taxes and it was not $99K. I just saw my former neighbor's house listed in today's paper under tax lien. Reval brought up his taxes and now he is in a hole for $30,000. $7,500 goes to the public school from his $30,000. But in the meanwhile, some people live in tax abated buildings and use the public schools and have no concern about losing their homes. The issue is the affordability of living in JC and paying taxes that steals people homes. The lien list has 37 pages of people in tax lien. Secaucus is 20 percent of JC population, had eleven names in lien which would be 55 people if the same size as JC. It is about the affordability of living in this city. So, nicky, spend $1.50 on the Jersey Journal and see the results of giving some teachers $99K plus. Public education is not free, it cost people money and homes.

So you have no problem with homeowners losing their homes in tax liens? At least those homeowners who do not have tax abatements and are paying school taxes for those in tax abatement buildings that use the schools but do not pay.

The original ordinance was Mayor Fulop's idea, not Councilman Boggiano. I remember the articles in papers outside JC where he said JC is ready for Airbnb. At the point, Airbnb was getting some push back from New York City's residents.

In the early 1990s, I was asked to do voter registration, so I targeted the new housing that was going up downtown. That is when I got my education, subsidized housing in Jersey City during that time period and probably now had non-American citizens. They were from different countries: Poland, Russia, and various Latin American countries. These housing units were build with tax dollars and received tax abatements. So when I hear there is not enough housing, yes, that is correct. American citizens must compete for housing against legal and now illegal immigrants.

Get over yourself, nicky, regardless of the outcome, you still approve of the city lying to get land. You still approve of the ordinance saying it will be a rail spur and not a park. During the ordinance, city officials admitted there will be no Green Acres funding because the state does not grant money to rail spurs.

I suggest people look at old maps of JC land where the railroad went. It was all over downtown. Newport and other areas was rail land, no one said anything on how that property was transferred. 6th Street became an issue when people realize affordable housing was going there. Typical hypocrisy.

Well, the Powerhouse Art building has now become a dormitory. All the talk of a great Art scene did not go through. Part of the building will be dorms for students at various colleges. It is City Ordinance 19-142.

So I guess you root for the thief and all the bad guys when you go the movies, nicky, it doesn't bother you when government is underhanded. But is the background of the Embankment, former mayor Schundler wanted that property to go to a developer to create affordable housing. I am not a fan of affordable housing because it does not pay full taxes, which is a separate issue of being against low income people. Hoboken does affordable well, by requiring many new building to have a portion affordable while the building pays full taxes. The neighborhood group got together to save the Embankment once they realize these plans. That tidbit of facts was lost.

Instead of taking someone's property, the city could have traded property. Fulop gave 16 acres in Liberty State Park and the city also owns acres in Bayfront. I personally finds it appalling that people do think this is OK. Communist countries do this, not a democratic country.

According to the city ordinance, the 6th Street Embankment was voted on as a rail spur, not a park. There is no "green acres" money or state funding for a rail spur. This also means the city lied to get someone's property so no property owner is actually safe; if you lie to grab someone property, the city can lie again to grab your property.

You are absolutely correct, most of Journal Square was rental until the city make radical changes to the rent control laws. Classic example is St. John Apartments.

I was at a meeting where a city employee stated they were getting calls from residents about Airbnb guests. They accuse the guests of getting high from pot and acting loud. But isn't that what Fulop wants for JC? Fulop is pushing recreational marijuana. I see both sides but the real issue is - Fulop pushed this Airbnb and now the homeowners who made these investments are being hurt.

The Mana does not have historic JC artifacts. In 1960, I was a child, reading about JC having a 300th birthday. I lived in Hoboken, both the Jersey Journal and the Hudson Dispatch ran stories on JC history. There was a building that had artifacts on Jersey City near the old Dutch cemetery. Those artifacts are nowhere to be found. The only thing that is left is the 16th century Dutch Bible. A lot of times are missing.

I do not know why potty training is a big deal. Wait until your child can go the whole night without accidents Make sure they do not have liquid before bed time. It is easier to do this during the summer when they have less clothes. I trained one child in four days during the summer and another in two weeks during the winter. Don't stress over this and your child will not stress over the training.

I was not going to edit the Ward C meeting since I did Ward B, but since there has been so much discussion, I believe the community should see it. It is edited for 28 minutes.

A number of people are confused by the flyers on the Airbnb. The wording on the ballot is confusing. A no vote is what the signatures were about, it is a removal of the city council ordinance. A yes vote, is to keep the city council ordinance. It is a shame the wording is confusing to voters. I am not an Airbnb renter and have no dog in the fight but I do not like the confusion for voters.

I have been to C and D meetings on this subject and bikers pack the meetings. They say they need the road diet to keep safe, but it is a rare site to see any biker use a helmet. Their safety is pushed on others instead of being responsible for themselves. My friend, Bob Miller passed away recently. He had health problems for a long time. During the summer months he sent me copies of emails that he sent the mayor. Apparently, Bob Miller had to wait twice for ambulances. One time was 20 minutes and the other time was 30 minutes. Bob was a frequent visitor to city hall. His recent death had nothing to do with a delay ambulance call but still, there is an impact when traffic does not move.

The medical center is downtown and doctors have their offices there. Besides there are places downtown like Holy Rosary and St. Anthony that have decent parking. I like to go to those churches.

For two years, Van Vorst Park and others had meetings with the city over Grand St and it is still going on. The people on Bergen Avenue complained this is pushed on them and they found out a couple of days before the work started. Council-President Lavarro also attended the meeting at Hudson Catholic and said the people there (Bergen Avenue) was disrespected by the mayor, he would not pull this downtown.

I did not write the story in Jersey Digs, nicky, but facts do not bother you, because you are full of misplaced rage. Neither did I write the Jersey Journal story on the subject. Or tell the 100 plus residents to show up to complain about bike lanes and the road diet at Hudson Catholic. There are people out there who can help you with your problem. Seek them out.

Not surprisingly, the cities at the top of the list are drive-thru obsessed sprawlburbs. Fortunately JC is not that kind of a city. We have good public transit (though of course it has its problems) and we’re a very walkable city. I can live here comfortably without a car, but that wouldn’t be possible in places like Raleigh NC a"nd most of the top half of that list.


"We have good public transit..." I guess you did not attend the meeting yesterday in Ward C held in Hudson Catholic High school. People complained that it took 40 minutes to drive a short distance due to the road diet and St. Aedan's Church could not get the hearse near the church due to the city's new configuration of Bergen Avenue. Parents cannot pick up their children from school and senior citizens came screaming about being vulnerable crossing the street since the change of the road. Finally merchants complained no one is shopping due to the road congestion brought on by the road diet.

The contract for this is around $3.8 million. With that payment, why charge residents?
