Post rally flyers around city today!

I put up rally flyers around JSQ this morning, and suggest others do the same (especially around city hall). Also, meeting attendees should bring signs to display inside to show the momentum behind this.

LOVE the anti-Healy poster. I'm not sure I agree with the comment below that we shouldn't alienate Healy. It's clear he enabled the corruption within his administration and benefited from the FBI sting/Dwek campaign cash -- or at least turned a blind eye to it.

Anyway, the biggest issue for me is the INSANE property tax hike and lack of accountability on the parts of our reps in city council. Our property taxes on a single family home in JC have gone up from less than $900/quarter to over $1400 for Q1 2010. That's around $2K in additional annual taxes since purchasing the home in 2001.

I'll be attending in some fashion - either outside right before the meeting or inside at the meeting. And I agree with others that this isn't exactly a 'Tea Party' rally. All politics is local and this is all about the locals getting screwed for too long.

I'm going to post some rally signs around wtc and jsq path and also plan to bring some sort of sign to the meeting/rally.

Hey Jimmy Corrigan,

That's actually my post, published on ClickZ, the publication I work for as Senior Editor. I cover online political advertising there, among other digital marketing/media industry related topics. I appreciate your mentioning it here, but next time please don't publish the full post.

cheers,
Kate

Part of the problem, I'd imagine, is the company can't afford to hire reporters with little experience or...well...that fire in the belly that drives reporters to do investigative or enterprise reporting. Some folks at the paper seem to have it and others don't.

But what I'm getting at is the paper can't get better if people aren't supporting it. As readership has declined, so has its ability to support a larger staff, or -- another estimation -- attract more seasoned reporters.

Thanks -- it's an important point to make. And let's not forget about our neighbors who aren't able to access the Web regularly -- young and old.

You'd be comfortable relying on the small handful of news sources online with very limited staff and irregular publishing schedules to cover Jersey City?

We have to remember that the paper isn't there only to cover politics and government, but to keep us abreast of community happenings, criminal activity in our neighborhoods, local sports, and even provide utilitarian information about things like trash pickup and parking rules.

I'm not satisfied with the paper's coverage of many things -- or lack thereof, either, but I'm not ready to rely on some Star Ledger bureau covering Hudson on an even more limited basis, which may be what we're left with if the JJ is put down. (That, and typically biased and politics-centric sites.)

And honestly, the disdain people have for print newspapers never ceases to amaze me. I'm in my 30s and online every day, but I still recognize the value of having a newspaper when I'm curled up on the couch or on the train and bus on my way to and from work. Plus, there are lots of people in this city who want to know what's going on around them but don't have the opportunity to go online all the time.

Save the Jersey Journal - are we just gonna let it die?

Are we ready to let a 140-year-old institution and Jersey City's one-and-only daily paper collapse during a mayoral election year? The Jersey Journal may not be perfect, but I for one can't imagine the second largest city in Jersey not having a daily paper.

Few people seem to be aware of the paper's potential shutdown, so I've created a group to help raise awareness. I've also been posting flyers around the city - but need help from others who can grab the flyers from the group's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=61931104112) and post them around their neighborhoods. Or better yet, talk to people and help figure out other ways to take action.

Does anyone out there care? About 100 people have joined the group over the past couple weeks since it was created. But few people seem interested in doing more than clicking a button to join. Is this the state of engagement and activism in Jersey City?

Are we just gonna lie down and let our sole daily paper die?
