Please come out and vote today.

As the Jersey Journal wrote on their front page last Saturday,when they endorsed Louis Manzo,they believe the municipal election is so important to the future of Jersey City they decided to put their opinion out front.

Whoever you choose to vote for the most important thing to do is get out and cast your vote.Remember that in order for any one candidate to win on Tuesday May 12th they have to get 50% + 1 vote.If not achieved then it goes to a runoff election in June between the two highest vote getters.The more votes that are cast for any of the candidates opposing the current mayor the harder it will be for him to win this Tuesday.


In my opinion I feel that Louis Manzo has by far the best chance of unseating him and has the qualifications needed to get the job done. My impression of him is that he is a workaholic(as the Jersey Journal remarks) and I think that is what is needed now.http://www.manzoteam2009.com/

Others here support Levin who is also a impressive candidate with good ideas.

So the bottom line is come out and vote your choice.

That is a disturbing image.I have seen signs on abandoned buildings, fences for empty lots , and on buildings that are for sale.This takes the cake though.

No you do not hang out with the wrong crowd!

Remember this Tuesday the winner needs 50% + 1 which quite simply means that for everyone who comes out to vote and who votes for someone other than Healy causes that much more of a probable runoff election.If it is a large turnout I believe the incumbent will have a very difficult time.

Get out and vote your choice of candidate.

I respect your choice of candidate but I would look past superstitions and concentrate more on content.

As the Journal writes I agree that the other candidates looking to replace Healy are worthy but I happen to think Manzo is the best choice for the job.On this site you find good arguments for the other candidates in particular Levin.

All of these candidates are for transparent government which I believe is currently lacking.The Journal recognized this in all the challengers.

I particularly like the bottom line analysis the Journal makes about Manzo being a workaholic.That's a good word for anyone looking to be Jersey City's next mayor because we need someone who is going to give 24/7.

Whoever your choice for mayor is I hope to see a very large turnout on Tuesday May 12.It's a credit to our country that we can discuss these issues here and make our own personal choices that impact our direction.Many people before us have made that possible for us.

WE ENDORSE LOUIS MANZO FOR JERSEY CITY MAYOR
Saturday, May 09, 2009
T he Jersey Journal endorses former Assemblyman Louis Manzo for mayor of Jersey City.

From the Manhattan side of the Hudson River, people can see the shiny, growing skyline of Jersey City. It reflects wealth and the city's growth. For those living behind all the waterfront development, it is a facade.

Over two decades of new construction and many investment, insurance, and banking institutions moving to Jersey City, local residents have hardly benefited. During the current administration, they have received tax increases, few improvements in their neighborhoods, a rising fear of violent crime, and a sense that there is little empathy for them in City Hall.

While there are many residents who believe their neighborhoods have been neglected, a true test of any administration's service to its people is how it deals with the people in Greenville and Bergen-Lafayette, and specifically Ward F, probably the most ignored voting district in the city.

On the ward's side streets, people are taking care of their homes, making repairs, landscaping as they would in any neighborhood. The problem is that the commercial districts and main streets have been in a state of disrepair for decades. Criminal gangs have been allowed to control some parks and street corners.

After a recent fatal shooting at Triangle Park, the city's response was to remove the park benches. Angry local residents were in disbelief. It speaks volumes about how the administration "solves" its problems.

Even in the more affluent Downtown there is disappointment. The Powerhouse Arts District changed from a planned neighborhood of low-to mid-rise structures into one of tall glass and steel towers that will bring more profit returns to developers.

These are just some of the many reasons that this newspaper agrees with President Barack Obama's call for a change - and endorses Manzo.

Manzo received The Journal's endorsement the last time he ran for mayor, in 2004 to fill the remaining months of the late Mayor Glenn D. Cunningham's term. It was his fourth unsuccessful shot at the office, and he lost to Healy. Voters have a chance to correct that mistake.

While every mayoral candidate, including Downtown resident and CivicJC founder Daniel Levin, Assemblyman Harvey Smith, and police Detective Phillip Webb, agree that crime is a major issue, Healy stubbornly insists city residents are wrong for being afraid to walk city streets. The mayor keeps quoting a statistic that crime is down 24 percent, which he credits to his gun buy-back program and other public safety policies.

Manzo and neighborhood organizations have urged the city to use a state-recognized program called Operation Ceasefire, which has reduced crime in several other urban municipalities. At a public session in Christ the King Church, on Ocean Avenue, Healy admitted using only "parts" of the program, and then promised to implement it all.

More community policing, recreational opportunities for children and young people, and jobs, are goals that Manzo says should be priorities. Other mayoral candidates made the same proposals, but Manzo further said he would go after all those firms who obtained lucrative tax abatements and promised to hire local residents.

It should be noted that the other three mayoral candidates seeking to oust Healy are worthy gentlemen whose passion for the city was evident during a forum held by The Jersey Journal. Besides crime, they are for stable taxes, clean streets and a transparent government.

Levin is a community-driven individual, a preservationist who wants city government to be more accountable to its citizens.

Smith is a respected veteran elected official who counts crime, affordable housing and more social programs, like restoring Ready Willing and Able, among his priorities.

Webb's focus is adding youth recreation programs and sensitivity training and a fitness program for police.

After the election, they can make good partners with Manzo in improving the city's quality of life.

The bottom line is that Manzo is a workaholic, a trait he once displayed as a Hudson County freeholder, chief of the city's health division, and as a state legislator. It is that energy, passion and know-how the people of what may be the biggest city in the state by 2010 need in their mayor.


JOURNAL PICKS FOR COUNCIL


In Ward A, the Journal endorses the 31-year-old community organizer for the Services Employees International Union, Local 1199, Andre M. Richardson, for a City Council seat. He is impressive in person and the skills he gained while campaigning on behalf of presidential candidate Barack Obama in several states is translating well in his campaign organization, which seems to be well represented by parents of the Jackie Robinson Little League. His priorities are making streets safe, providing residents with good-paying union jobs, and providing alternatives to gang life for young people.

Ward B resident Philip J. Kenny comes from the Freeholder Bill O'Dea school of government - respond to any request from the community for help. Kenny is our choice to represent the ward on the City Council. He is the only member of the Healy ticket endorsed by the Journal. Respected within the community, Kenny has an independent streak. He would like to create a citizens budget committee and eliminate no-bid contracts for professional services.

For Ward C, the Journal supports the election of James P. King to the council seat. King is on Manzo's ticket and will be a welcome ally in city government. He is best known for his Jimmy King Civic Association, which among many things delivers hundreds of turkeys to shut-ins on Thanksgiving Day, sponsors a Little League team and enlists volunteers to visit hospitals. He wants walking police beats, security around Dickinson High school and improved services for the city's elderly.

The Journal endorses James Carroll for Ward D. A worthy successor to incumbent William Gaughan, Carroll is a police officer and attorney. The Heights resident was once a legal counsel for the Hudson County Democratic Organization and is now part to the Manzo ticket. He would like to review the city's tax abatement policy and stop wasteful government spending.

In Ward E, residents are lucky to choose among several good candidates, but the Journal endorses incumbent Councilman Steven Fulop. Fulop has earned a return to the City Council because he has emerged as the alternative voice on what has become a rubber stamp council. He sponsored the city's pay-to-play law, and he wants to reform the city's tax abatement policy and has been fighting for more transparency in government.

Ward F requires an extremely difficult choice from among the six candidates. It is the area that needs the most attention in the city. The Journal endorses Omar Barbour. An independent, Barbour was heavily involved in the development of the Hub on Martin Luther King Drive. This project is now somewhat stagnant and the city is making changes to the plan. Barbour's ability to plan and organize as well as create partnerships between the community and government entities and developers may prove beneficial to any new administration. He is fighting for a safe cleanup of the chromium-tainted site on Garfield Avenue, and seeking lifetime health monitoring for residents there, and he would like to see improvements in crime fighting policies.

For the three at-large City Council seats, The Journal endorses "change" in the form of Board of Education employee Lori Serrano and two members of Levin's ticket, freelance writer Andrew Hubsch and business consultant Emilio C. DeLia.

Serrano has intimate knowledge of the city public housing system and briefly served as a commissioner of the Jersey City Housing Authority. She is vocal in her criticism of the authority, having accused the housing agency of warehousing apartments at Montgomery Gardens and criticized authority members of handing themselves bonuses instead of raises. Her priorities include better public safety, more affordable housing and other quality-of-life issues.

Hubsch, a former Ward B candidate, is also a dean at Lincoln High School who would like to see the state return the school district to local control. DeLia's family roots go 100 years deep in Jersey City and he has a bachelor's degree in government from Clark University and practiced his major as an intern for Sen. Robert Torricelli and a volunteer in several states for Obama.

Both men want a safe, just and green Jersey City and a government that will not bankrupt future generations, are more interested in empowering others than maintaining power, and will fight to create more jobs than condos.

The burden is on THEM (and now, YOU, pinko/bright) to demonstrate their chops to non-interested parties. i.e., not those who benefit from the relationship, as pinko and bright apparently do. Inside jobs and no-show jobs and other vested hiring practices are a perennial problem in this town. Making EXCUSES because you like the results is just that: making excuses. The Brennan Coffee House might be nice, but I'd like $15k to organize it as well.








Does not one hold the position as chairperson of the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority or if not now at least in the past?Is this a non-paid volunteer position?If I had to guess I would say no.How does one get appointed to be the chairperson of the Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority?Sounds like a critical position.

Excerpt from the Political Insider column


Healy is trying to tarnish Manzo's time in Trenton
Saturday, May 02, 2009

J ersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy is using some of his millions of dollars to hammer the man he apparently sees as his closest rival, Louis Manzo, with a new wave of mailers, flyers and letter writing aimed at trying to destroy Manzo's reputation as a legislator.

The blitz has raised some eyebrows. It begs the question that if Healy is so far ahead, why not go into cruise control and keep the election campaigning low key enough to put voters to sleep.

One colorful and very expensive-looking mailer went out blaming Manzo for "Higher taxes. Higher crime. Fewer jobs. Dirty streets and parks."

Your first thought is why didn't we notice that Manzo was the mayor of the city?

No, the mailer is accusing Manzo of "the old, failed politics." Doesn't that perfectly describe Hudson County? But it succeeds in getting people elected, so how much of a failure can it be.

What they are trying to say is that the mayoral hopeful was also a freeholder and actually gave contracts to vendors who also gave to his political campaigns. This theme goes on, and it makes one wonder.

If the Jersey City administration feels so strongly about this, why are they afraid to approve pay-to-play legislation? Why did the administration refuse to entertain this measure and other ethics reform legislation that Councilman Steven Fulop tried and failed to push through the City Council?

The most interesting attack was this: "Lou Manzo is actually remarkably ineffective at getting anything done. As a Trenton legislator, only 17 percent of the bills Manzo sponsored passed into law."

Consider these numbers about the Assembly. There are about 18 voting sessions each year in the Assembly. You figure out how many that is over four years and it will give you an idea how often you can get a bill through a committee and on the floor for a vote.

In Manzo's four years, he was a sponsor of 956 proposed bills, of which 165 measures became law. It is a good number, one many legislators cannot match. The number is prolific if you consider Manzo and Gov. Jon Corzine, both Democrats, are far from best buddies. It also goes to show how the use of percentages is a very poor way to make an argument.

What disturbed me the most was Healy's smug statement that contrary to Smith's (and Manzo's?) assertion , he did not have a $3 million war chest, he only had $1 million!







Every vote counts and as murican wrote if everyone comes out and votes their choice for the best candidate then the outcome is uncertain.

I believe it is to the incumbents advantage, not just here but anywhere, if voters have a "what's the use" attitude.
I think the incumbent would often be able to get out his or her base of support to vote.

I could imagine that any candidate publicizing how he or she will win by a wide margin may be useful in causing apathy or a "what's the use" attitude in the minds of some of the opposition voters.

TV On Wheels is a crappy gimmick that wastes campaign cash and is ineffective at conveying any coherent message. Spending money on the van makes about as much sense as buying t-shirts or handing out pencils with the candidates name; its a great ego boost for the candidate but doesn't get voters to change their minds.







It sounds like this advertising median or gimmick is having the opposite effect than what was wanted.It is causing quite a stir here.

Speaking from the perspective of a non-native Jersey City resident: voters here do seem disconnected, uncaring, and, above all, demoralized. If I had experienced what most people from here have for years at the hands of local politicians then, in all honesty, I would probably be apathetic too.

But I'm not from Jersey City. I'm from a mystical place where mayors and councilpeople and other elected officials work FOR the residents they serve and accept city employment because they want to help their constituents. Go figure- those naive Midwesterners!

Yeah, things really suck, but I'm convinced that they can get better if voters would just...snap out of it and get involved.

It's our responsibility as citizens to know what's going on and to keep watch over our elected officials- to MAKE them serve our interests. I think of it as a game of "spot the liar".

I hate it when people say they don't have enough information on candidates to vote. The information is out there- visit the website of the candidates- or call/email them! You can do that! And maybe 90 percent of the time you'll get a response (and if you don't that should probably answer your question...). I did that with Dan Levin (he's great), and now I'm a volunteer.

Sorry bout the stump speech- but it's up to us guys.





No need to apologize for the stump speech.I agree with you about the information being out there if people take the time to seek it out.Visit the website or call them.I am glad to hear that you were impressed enough to volunteer.This and many other postings I have read here shows that people are concerned about what is going on locally.I bet some of the more negative comments do come from being demoralized.

I have looked at both Levin and Manzo and like both of them.I see that Levin has many supporters on this board and can see why they are attracted to him as a candidate.
I do believe however that Manzo has a great deal of accomplishments and would do well for JC.He seems to be very passionate about his beliefs.Check out his website at

Healy's surely not been the mayor he said he'd be

S ince Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy declined an invitation to a debate at the Loew's Jersey Theater hosted by Pat O'Melia for Comcast cable TV, it should be known that the mayor's campaign honchos and honchettes also declined to attend a Jersey Journal mayoral forum this week.

The reason in each case is that he will only take part in debates and events with respected entities. Good thing he declined, because I was thinking the same thing and did not want to embarrass the guy.

I really do not know why he is afraid of taking part in the forum.

For a clue, let's look at the campaign literature Healy used when he ran to fill the late Glenn Cunningham's shoes.

First, his mailings promised that a Healy administration would use a "proactive and problem-solving policing" approach to control crime.

He claimed: "More foot patrols will be assigned to your neighborhood and there will be an increase in interaction between officers and residents they serve ."

Then there was this promise: "A Healy administration will give Jersey City property owners the same tax breaks and abatements that have been given to waterfront developers ."

The would-be mayor also promised to "Install a Dial 3-1-1 System to Control Quality of Life Issues." Through this new phone system, residents could "call in quality-of-life complaints such as dirty streets, potholes, refuse dumped on streets, broken sidewalks, blocked-up sewer catch basins and building code violations."

How's that 311 phone system working for you?

The mayor is correct when he says this columnist is biased. I am.

For too long this city has allowed politicians to not do their basic jobs - care for the safety and welfare of its citizens. They don't get it. Instead of putting future tax abatements and millions of dollars in grants into new waterfront projects along Newark Bay and the Hackensack River, city officials should just concentrate on upgrading the "quality of life" in the heart and spine of the "traditional" part of the city - from the Heights to Greenville.

New businesses, homes, parks, schools and more can do wonders for residents who already pay high taxes. Or how about just making sure the laws and codes that are on the books are obeyed? Isn't it amazing how first-time home buying programs always benefit members of city government - right, Dom. We can go on and on.

Truthfully, the incumbent is the overwhelming favorite. He has a massive campaign work force - manpower selected from city and county workers who seem to find time to do the bidding of campaign headquarters, and more than $1 million in a war chest. He also has lawyers who always seem to pop up to represent the city and so-called quasi-governmental agencies.

More importantly, the administration is the prohibitive favorite, knowing that it can lull an apathetic electorate - that's some of you readers.

Most people believe they did their voting when Barack Obama ran. A light voter turnout usually means a victory for the incumbent administration in most municipalities where political machines are abusing the system and churning out absentee ballots, night and day. If this happens in Jersey City, no one wants to hear any future complaints about how the city is run.

Healy loyalists like to say I favor one candidate or another. Most of them think I favor Lou Manzo. Manzo has been somewhat invisible. He is just getting his campaign underway and it may be too late.

Former Council President L. Harvey Smith had a tough time getting a full ticket together, has funding concerns, but is still actively campaigning. Dan Levin is hoping his Downtown loyalists will give him enough impetus to make people sit up and notice his grassroots effort. Phil Webb just has a big hill to climb. I like the passion of all the challengers.

The truth is I would rather anyone else - even a write-in vote for those metaphoric dozen monkeys who when locked in a room with a typewriter and given enough time can write a Shakespeare play - than the present administration.

Mad at me are you? Boo-hoo.

I would like to encourage everyone to post their positive thoughts on the various mayoral candidates.The webmaster has provided the sites for discussion to do that and the parameters to follow.I would suggest that the webmaster help to keep these sites active so that the readers can review the various ideas offered on all candidates and no one favored candidate dominates the board.

What would also be helpful was if the candidates posted information about themselves so those who get alot of their info off the List had a chance to see their bio,positions,etc...
