The block in front of the Barge Inn Tavern has always been sketchy. On a number of occasions fights have spilled into the street from that bar. It should be shut down.

Pile driving on 2nd Street

There is a new construction site on 2nd St. between Brunswick and Monmouth where they are driving piles for a new building. This has been going on for the last 2 days, started this morning at 8 AM (wtf!). The vibrations are shaking my house on 1st St. Hope it doesn't cause any damage. Called the Councilman. Any body else concerned?

Annoying Direct Energy salespeople

Three salespeople from Direct Energy just rang our doorbell at dinner time. They represented themselves as being connected to PSE&G and that if we didn't take immediate action our utility bills would greatly increase. When I asked for a PSE&G credential they couldn't produce one.

I told them I wasn't interested and then did a google search finding that this company uses pressure tactics door-to-door to have people choose Direct Energy over PSE&G. Beware of these folks, it appears to be a big scam.

Contracts for legal services are not bid. State purchasing law stipulates that legal services are exempt from the bid process.

Not only does he still work there, but he has received a raise since the incident. An investigation should be launched targeting those handling the budgets and authorizing raises. Personally, I would start in the Payroll Division. The director there is a real sneaky guy only out for himself and his pals next door.




All pay increases have to be approved by the Mayor's Office. All the Payroll Division does is cut the checks.

Akil will likely remain on the city payroll. He had a civil service position before Fulop promoted him to the powerful chief of staff last year.

Akil will remain on the city payroll. Before Fulop promoted him last year, Akil had a civil-service position, making about $85,000 a year as a systems analyst with the health department. City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said Akil will return to his old title and salary.

What a joke!

In Jersey City, Akil out and Albiez in as Fulop’s COS

Politicker NJ
By Max Pizarro At 10/16/14 11:08am

Drubbed over racially tinged comments he made in the 1990s, Jersey City Mayor Chief of Staff Muhammed Akil today announced his resignation.

“Effective immediately, I am resigning as Chief of Staff of the City of Jersey City,” Akil said in a statement. “Comments I made as a college student twenty years ago were recently reported in the media as if they reflect my current thinking. This is simply untrue. Throughout my personal life and professional career, I have worked on behalf of individuals from all beliefs and backgrounds. However, these comments made two decades ago have become a distraction to the administration and all the important work that City employees undertake daily.

“I would like to thank Mayor Fulop for giving me the honor to serve as his Chief of Staff,” Akil added. “As a dedicated public servant, I will continue to work in all communities to improve the quality of life for Jersey City residents.”

Now serving as Fulop’s deputy chief of staff, Mark Albiez will serve as Chief of Staff effective Friday, Oct. 17.

Beginning in 2003 as a Program Coordinator with the Jersey City Department of Recreation, Albiez later assumed the role of Chief of Staff to New Jersey Assemblyman Ruben Ramos, Jr. in 2008. He later began working for State Senator Brian P. Stack as Chief of Staff, focusing on constituent services, drafting of legislation, legislative processes, and interaction with government offices, public agencies and members of the media.

http://politickernj.com/2014/10/in-je ... -albiez-in-as-fulops-cos/


Once Fulop brought Albiez in it was only a matter of time before Akil was out. Making Akil chief of staff was paying a political debt, however, it was clear that Akil was incapable of handling the job.

Especially considering that Akil really brings nothing to the table other than his Ward F political connections. He has no skills for the workplace and is universally disliked by most City workers and the Jersey City business community.

Back in the day, another person using the Hitler card, Al Sharpton :

“We have the facts and the evidence that an assistant district attorney and a state trooper did this,” Mr. Sharpton said. He called Gov. Mario M. Cuomo a racist and warned that powerful state officials were complicit. When asked whether Ms. Brawley would speak with the state attorney general, Robert Abrams, Mr. Sharpton said that would be like asking someone in a concentration camp to talk to Hitler.

Vetting the background of every senior staff member is paramount for his future and the future of Jersey City.

Six years after giving this speech Mr. Akil was hired by the Cunningham Administration. There was no mention of his remarks then and certainly no apology. Shortly thereafter, he was terminated by Cunningham for inappropriate behavior on the job.

I would hope that Mayor Fulop would do the right thing and fire this fellow.

We had a bad experience with this place. We thought we would give them a try. Ordered a pizza. Delivery was slow and when the pie was delivered the delivery guy had tipped the box allowing the cheese to run off the pizza. We called to complain and were hung up on. We brought the pie to the store to complain and after getting our money back were told to get the hell out.

I understand that anyone can have one bad experience with a pizza but the nasty attitude of the staff insured we would never return.

I live down the block from this place. It is a blight on the neighborhood. There have been a number of arrests outside for drug dealing and an uzzi was found in the park across the street. And most nites the drunken patrons come rolling out at 1-2 AM, cursing, fighting, throwing bottles, etc. I've often found their beer bottles littering my front yard.

We ? Who is we ? You obviously don't live in the neighborhood. Carmine's is a great place and a real loss for those of us who live here.

There is no way they can build underground parking for an apartment building on that corner, let alone the disruption a large construction project will cause.

BTW, didn't you say a few weeks ago you were leaving jclist ? Why are you still here ?

Carmine tried to buy his current property location and the owner said no. The owner also tried to charge Carmine an exhorbitant amount of rent at his current location, so Carmine had to go.

I hear the owner now wants to build a multi-story building on the corner of Brunswick and 1st. Condos or apartments. I hope the folks in the neighborhood organize to stop him. A building of that type (with no parking) will congest a nice residential area. It would totally be out of character for a neighborhood filled with two-story townhouses.
