Re: Mayor Healy and Councilman Fulop agree on requiring businesses to phase out single-use plastic bags

In honor of the idiocy that is "Waste Free JC campaign," I'm going to insist that everything be double plastic bagged when I go grocery shopping tomorrow.

All of the serious candidates once again are in the pocket of the corrupt, destructive teachers' union, including yet again all of the Fulop candidates. You can't be serious in the slightest about improving JC schools and support tenure. They are mutually exclusive. I'm getting out to vote for sure so that I can vote no on the budget, but I won't support any of these candidates.

"At the Port Authority Technical Center in Jersey City Tuesday morning, more than 50 union workers showed up in bright orange t-shirts, promoting the fare hikes. The funds will in part go to new infrastructure for the Port Authority, which will open up job opportunities in the construction fields. "

What a shock, scum bag union goons showing up to back this economic suicide plan.

Re: 2011 Board of Education Election - Steve Fulop backed candidates

Am I reading this right that Fulop's slate is backed by the teacher's union? I can X those candidates out if so. New Jersey teachers union backed candidates could not possibly be more the opposite of a reform ticket. As long as they were anti-union I'd prefer bribe taking lap dogs of the political bosses in a second. Mr. Youssef is apparently anti-teachers union, so I'll vote for him. Is there anyone else opposing the union?

That's par for the course in high density living and is no reflection on the cleanliness of any one person since they spread so easily. You could keep your home spotless but if someone down the hall brings them in, bam!


I've lived in several high rises in JC and never seen a roach in any one of them. Never saw roaches when I lived in an apartment in a row house for a number of years either. I've seen mice a few times over the years but never had any issues with bugs.

An election's not really being heavily contested when the challenger has an insurmountable 15-point lead.

If you were a Republican, you would have known for sure about the primary. You'd have known because Christie would have been robo-calling your house multiple times a day, every day, for months. He pissed me off so bad that I actually voted for Lonegan, though ultimately I guess I'm glad Christie won, since he'll beat Corzine easily and Lonegan had no chance.

I live at Marin and Columbus. There were lengthy periods of outages for me on both cable and internet yesterday (not 100% outage, but both were running extremely slowly so that I'd see periodic flashes of picture on the TV screen and could still bring up the channel info bar with a delay). It's been flickering a little bit today every once in a while, but only about one 15 or so minute total breakdown that I've noticed so far.

I overlook the intersection where that was going on, and kind of watching what they were doing at various times during the day, and I couldn't really figure it out. The giant white crane was lifted all the way up in the air in the middle of the intersection. They turned it around and lowered it into the street facing east on Morgan St. There was some kind of big yellow construction machine at the end of where they laid it down. Then they did something with the yellow machine and the laid down crane, packed up, and left.

Schundler created modern JC, especially downtown. We'd still be nothing but a crime ridden slum if he hadn't come around. I guess Healy wins by default now, and Manzo gets to embarrass himself by losing by 40 points as usual.

Manzo has run and lost 4 times. He's going to lose this time also and lose badly, bank on it. He's turned himself into a laughingstock with this never ending, hopeless fixation on becoming mayor of Jersey City. Fulop can only damage his future prospects by associating himself with something so ridiculous. Fulop should show some real backbone and prove he can cross party lines to endorse a good government candidate with a proven record and get behind Schundler.

I'm kinda for the income tax. It's the only way to raise tax money from the wealthiest segment of the JC population, those living in abated new developments. Properly designed, to be offset by a residential property tax drop, it could be revenue neutral for most small property owners.


The wealthiest segment of the population will leave Jersey City en masse if they impose an income tax, so good luck with that.

And yet somehow, even with the enormous increase in the tax base from all the new development and population growth, the city is still broke year after year. The incompetence of our local leaders is amazing (though thankfully they're somehow nowhere near as bad as Hoboken's leaders apparently).

One other note about Manzo's sleazy tactics (I really don't like the the guy, lol). During the last mayoral election, he blatantly violated clear campaign laws by going from polling place to polling place and handing out donuts and coffee to people in line and schmoozing with them. I happened to be inside my polling location downtown when he came in with his entourage and did it. I'm pretty sure there's an old thread around here about it somewhere. He still got crushed in the election as usual, but even Healy and Lipski I'm pretty sure have enough common sense not to so brazenly ignore laws against campaigning within fixed distances of polling locations.

Manzo's a complete joke. I think Fulop already endorsed him once recently for something and as usual with anyone who come near this guy, Manzo embarrassed him over it by going down in flames. Manzo's modus operandi is to make some demagogic pronouncement about some issue or other he's going to tackle for the people that would actually make a mess of things, then (thankfully) never actually follow through. His campaign tactics are atrocious too. He runs in every election, always uses massive illegal signage even though that has probably had a negative net impact on his vote total in every election (people don't much like having their neighborhoods defaced every four years by his goons), and employing thugs to do the illegal campaigning who have been known to get in physical confrontations with people trying to clean up their mess.

"One thing I pledge is that I will never be an embarrassment to the people of this city," Manzo said.

Little late for that. So glad we can yet again look forward to every pole, tree, and mailbox being illegally plastered with Manzo signs again.

I don't really care if someone bribes every member of the city council to tear down Montgomery Gardens and replace it with an open sewer. That place needs to go, and it's hard to think of anything that would replace that wouldn't be a major improvement. How long ago did Chicago tear down Cabrini Green and we're still having to put up with the exact same nonsense here?
