Does Fulop have a beard in that picture?

So you got this info two weeks ago and waited until the day before the State of the City address to send the administration a letter asking them to respond to it in their State of the City address?

So this way they either:

1. Rework the address the day before to include a lot of references to last year's taxes
2. Have you set up with an attack (for example "I wish he would've addressed my letter") after listening to a list of accomplishments for ~45 minutes.

I know this is a part time job and I'm sure you're busy but this info isn't even new, the Jersey Journal on March 8th wrote:
"...the amount to be raised by taxes - $208,650,272 - is 12 percent higher than last year.

Though city officials have not yet said how the proposed budget will affect individual homeowners, Healy said last night he expects the tax rate to be "stable.""

http://www.nj.com/news/jjournal/jerse ... 99569120114121.xml&coll=3

Seems much more like a political move as opposed to trying to have a discussion with the Mayor or getting some clarification for the residents.

Amen. It is a gift we've been given and it's an opportunity to step up and put words to action. It also could be a do-over, a chance to correct a horrible mistake that was made in May.


Back in May Mayor Healy was elected on the first ballot by a solid majority of the people that cared enough about Jersey City's future to actually vote. Unlike his two strongest competitors he hasn't been accused/indicted for any wrong doing.

Sorry to mess with the acoustics of this echo chamber but I think more people than you realize are going to be able to see through this political attack.

So I am wondering what precipitated targeting these political officials.


Chris Christie was the US Attorney General for NJ until December of 2008. He knew that going after Republicans out in the suburbs wouldn't help him get elected governor so he decided to target Corzine's base, Hudson County dems.

Not sure if he was the one who decided to arrest everyone involved in the three separate investigations (laundering, corruption and organs) on the same day in order to falsely connect all the politicians in with a bizarre international organ/laundering money conspiracy or if that was a gift from his temporary successor.

Re: New Mexican Food Cart Downtown

Not the Lucinda truck. This guy doesn't do tacos or burritos, says he wants to show people other dishes. Has a few different types of mexican sandwiches and something similar to a quesadilla.

The one in front of the courthouse must be something different. The owner said that this is his first full week, so unless he was just testing some locations then it probably wasn't him.

Just tried the food at the new Mexican cart near Grove St PATH station, was really good. Sounds like they're going to be at the Grove St. station evenings until midnight and doing lunches near Exchange place. Owner was a nice guy and really eager to answer any questions you have about the dishes.

Re: Election Gets Nasty: Embankment's Developer, Steve Hyman Launches $150G "Anyone-but-Healy" Campaign!

Makes me wonder if any of the candidates cut a deal with Hyman. Judging from their public statements I don't think any of the candidates would be friendly to his interests but they all seem to be having trouble raising money. Maybe one of them indicated to Hyman that they would back off the embankment if elected, assuming he fronted the cost of some last minute attack ads.

If there is no deal in place it would seem insane to spend up to a quarter million dollars to get a candidate elected that would continue fighting you.

Manzo is right, his fifth mayoral election loss will probably only embarrass himself.

Torres is really reaching for a scandal here.

You can get the actual story in the same paper:

"The autonomous authority has made trucks and sweepers available for festivals and parades for more than a decade on a first-come, first-serve basis to any organization that requests it, he said......Sunday's green-cabbed flatbed was rented to "Friends of Phil Kenny" for $178.64, he said."

Pretty obvious that the taxpayers are not footing the bill.

If King Healy says that crime is down in JC, than it must be true. Why would Healy lie? The only thing that he stands to lose is the election and everything that goes along with it.
As Councilman Fulop has already stated "in my experiences with Jerry Healy he has never kept his word about anything,?



Well if you want to quote Fulop you can check out his reaction to last month's State of the City address. Sounds like even he isn't denying the administration's achievements over the past few years.

?I think he did a real nice job,? Fulop said. ?I think he has a lot to be proud of, and he highlighted a lot of the positive things that are happening in the city.?

And then if you dig into the crime stats on njjcpd.com you see a pretty positive picture when comparing 2008 over 2005 or even just looking at some of the year over year drops.

While it may be technically possible to manipulate those stats I don't think the PR or legal trouble that would cause when found out would ever be worth it. Plus if they were actually being manipulated I think you would hear a lot of credible allegations about it, not just whispers on a message board.

We can't tell if the paper is correct because you didn't put the relevant portion of the rally on Youtube. From what I can see on the online edition it sounds like the relevant portion was during an audience Q&A, see the below quote:

"When asked his plan for improving crime prevention, he [Manzo] said: "I will stop manipulating crime statistics, because we are only fooling ourselves."

Manzo was met by boos and hisses from the audience and a retort from Healy, who turned to the candidate and said: "Mr. Manzo, I don't lie." "

Do you have the audience Q&A available to post on Youtube? It would be interesting to see.

Definitely cool, that visibility to the President combined with the fact that we now have a president that actually cares about urban issues (funding for COPS grants for example) should lead to good things for us.

Since Fulop eventually wants to be mayor it is logical to conclude that he would rather run against a candidate with Mayor Healys record and notoriety than against a candidate with Assemblyman Manzos credentials.


Haha yes, Healy's only qualifications for office include serving as a county prosecutor, running a private law practice, being a former judge and actually being mayor. Plus he's the head of the HCDO and counts the governor, Cory Booker and US Congressmen and Senators as his supporters.

Manzo's "credentials", on the other hand, appear to be four years in the State Assembly and losing the mayoral election four times. Oh and a BA in Health Education. I'm not sure he's even had a full time job before, mayor of New Jersey's soon to be largest city might not be the easiest place to start.
