Jersey City Council President Vega, charged in corruption sting, says he won't resign
by Amy Sara Clark/The Jersey Journal
Monday July 27, 2009, 10:31 AM
Jersey Journal file photoMariano Vega, the Jersey City city council president, said today he will not resign his position.

Jersey City City Council President Mariano Vega, charged on Thursday in the probe that netted 44 New Jersey officials and others on corruption and money laundering charges, said this morning he has no plans on resigning.

"The events from this past Thursday are as shocking to me as everyone else," se said in a statement before the council caucus. "I am not guilty of the allegations. In our system of justice we are presumed innocent until proven guilty. I do not intend to resign as council president nor as councilman."

Full coverage of the probe.

The probe ensnared a number of Jersey City officials and touched on the Mayor Jerramiah Healy's office. Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini and Building Inspector John Guarini were among the city workers arrested Thursday.

The criminal complaint against Beldini, Ed Cheatam and Jack Shaw says that Dwek, the government's cooperating witness, met with Healy twice.

The complaint also says that "Shaw had given the 'checks' to (Healy) at the previous Saturday's campaign fundraiser, but indicated that defendant Shaw had told (Healy) that the checks came from (Dwek). Defendant Shaw then remarked '[a]nd [defendant Beldini] knew it.' "

On March 24, the feds say, Beldini acknowledged she received $10,000 from Dwek, and there was the promise of another $10,000 from Dwek.

I also did ALL small maintence around the apt, so aside from a stove replacement (which they actually were pretty quick with) I never called for anything in my APT.

They did definitely drag the proverbial feet on building maintanence, but at least they actually came a did things.

All in all I concur:
All around OK.

As for the break ins, my experience was a year and a half ago.

I left the Paulus breakins for the Heights gangland murders. Breakins are SO last year

They managed my apt on warren & morris. (about 1 1/2 years ago)
Generally they were okay, but for instance we had 3 break ins into the building and they did nothing to address it. In fact the police showed me how easy it is to pop open the front doors with just your foot and hand, and despite me showing a-1, they did nothing.

They were pretty richard about satellite dishes until I faxed them the FCC rule about apt renters.

All in all, not too bad. And despite Jenny saying that my cleaned apt was a disaster when I left, they did only keep 200 of my deposit.

Here's a novel solution to the parking problem:

How about SMALLER Fu%#ing cars people!!!???

I mean really, do people ALL need to have 15-20 foot pickup trucks and Vans and SUV's here in the Heights? My only consolation is that these massive guzzlers are getting maybe 11-15 mpg city and are paying for it at the pump.

Another BRILLIANT idea: How about revisiting the No Parking from corner signs???

Example: When two One Way streets intersect, not ALL FOUR Corners need to have cars 10-15ft back.. Just 2.

Where the red is, is no parking, yet there are only TWO directions one can possibly go from either Webster or Hutton.
Youd never turn LEFT from Hutton and NEVER Turn Right on to Hutton from Webster, so why all the extra parking set backs?

I have a house and I could totally to a curb cut in like a lot of my neighbors, but it's just ugly.

It pains me every time I see a new 2 family infill go up, and here in the Height's there is one ever damn 5 feet. because it takes away a spot.

Example, have 2 new vacant 2 family infills on my block. Been for sale for about 3-4 months now. No one lives there, but you can not park in front of the driveways. additionally, the space between the driveways is big enough for a Mini Cooper, but that's it.. So really 3 spaces are lost.

The ineptitude of our "leaders" is truly mind blowing.

Historic preservation is fantastic and all, but despite the slight charm I may think my house has, it definitely is NOT worthy of historical preservation. In fact the "Staten Island House" in-fill has already besmirched my street.
I'm not certain any house on my block is of a historic quality, and truth be told most should be knocked down. My beef and original rant was that what they ARE building is just tacky. Tacky and ugly and they are the same exact building plan as about 60+ others throughout JC. As I said before, within one square block of my house there are 11 of these things! Of the 11, at least one chose to use a red brick rather than the grey yellow crap every other one has.

In all honesty if all 60+ buildings looked exactly alike, but like brownstones, I'd be perfectly fine with it. It boils down to taste I guess, and my desire for all of JC to clean itself up in a classy way, and not a real estate boom build & flip.

The one thing JC seems to be really good at is converting buildings to luxury condos, oh and tearing down buildings to build luxury condos.

By the way, who are all of theses people making enough cash to afford 400k+ condos ? I mean I make a decent living and could never afford it. There can't be THAT many stockbrokers and investment bankers, etc. that are making said cash and want to live somewhere like the Beacon. I'm sure there is a reasonable explanation, I just haven't found one yet

You know I think I may go on an illegal "bonus" hunt soon. Although the last time I wrote in about parking 2 years ago, I believe referring to the JCPA as the "parking gestapo" and was then treated to a meeting with the then Director, and an officer, a parking officer, and someone from the incinerator authority all with a copy of my complaint in hand. I digress though

I actually considered getting a lot before purchasing my house and throwing a WeeHouse prefab on it.

I thought and still think it would be fantastic if someone who had a lot would just throw a double stack of these on (pdf here at http://weehouses.com/notsoweehouse.pdf ) or some variation there of.

I guess not even modern but, actually what irks me is that there is an opportunity to add some architectural detail to these cookie cutter boxes during construction, but instead they go for the cheapest grey-yellow brick facade and home Depot doors. They rip down fixer uppers that could be rehabbed and restored to some original beauty, and instead replace it with buildings that would be better suited in brooklyn circa 1984.

And I totally understand that there are some builders doing better jobs. Here in the very same area you have the total opposite going on with the restore on the corner of Franklin and Webster 69 Franklin, and also ther is this guy/company Jaime Restoration that has been doing top notch work around here and in downtown as well.

All said it's just a shame that while some people are making a concerted effort to beautify parts of JC, there are others inadvertently destroying it. *sigh*

I mean it's honestly crazy. On my Part of Webster, they knocked down a really nice, old (though in need of some updating) single family, and now are putting up TWO of these monstrosities. The family across the street from me has one and while they have a drive way big enough for two cars, they park on the street anyway. I know it's an "urban" environment and it may sound extreme, but there needs to be a rule or something that if you have a driveway you can not park on the street. It's just not fair.

And yes with these bonus apartments, that's yet another spot lost on the street.

The cut ins you mention can in no way be legal, though I'm sure that they probably are grandfathered in since they've been here so long.. I live in that row of Row houses on Webster by the loft, and they ALL, save mine, have a cut-in "drive way". The cars ALL STICK OUT ONTO THE SIDEWALK. This can not be legal at all! My neighbor has a conniption if we pull in front of his "driveway" to unload the car before finding a spot elsewhere.

I realize life is unfair, but between car insurance, tickets and the general inconvenience of parking, why have a car in the Heights?
Oh wait, maybe it's because you need to drive to get to a decent grocery store, or that the stupid 87 stops running at 8pm on weekends and you have to share a 7 dollar cab with 8 other people all needing to go to 14th st and Washington.

Don't get me wrong, I like my house and that I have a yard, and I love the convenience to Manhattan, but JC is like an abusive spouse, and I'm the codependent husband.

Is there ANYONE who can stop the construction of these two story box houses going up all over the heights? I mean I'm all for new construction but they are all identical, and butt ugly to boot. On New York Ave. & webster alone there are about 10 of these things, not to mention that they have driveways, removing one street space per house at the least.

Who keeps handing out these building permits? Is there any ordinance limiting the amount of like styled houses?

More importantly, who was the architect, for he needs a beating.
