Noticed a suspicious individual sifting through peoples mail yesterday on Sussex street between Warren and Washington yesterday. He had an old USPS pushcart with no mail in it, and he was dressed in ordinary shorts and tee-shirt. Slightly heavy, African-American male around six feet tall. 911 refused to take my call since the USPS has their own police force. Called their number and got an answering machine.

Not too shy to talk


the subsidized US solar companies failed because of chinese dumping. period. solar is approaching grid parity, and subsidizes will be less important in afew years. the reality is that we are moving towards a less carbon intensive economy, with natural gas having a larger role because of the shale revolution. Coal plants are being retired at a record pace and may never be built again in the US. natural gas has about half the carbon as coal, so our greeh house gas emissions have been declining. Nuclear is too expensive, and few plants will be built in the next decade. the US committed to reducing our ghg emissions by 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. We may very well meet that goal even without federal legislation because of the switch to natural gas, lower demand becausemof the recession and a huge amount of energy eficiency programs that have been created over the last decade.

This occurance shows how the use os city and county cars is abused regularly. at the state level, theya have big stickers on the cars with a phone number to call if the car is not being used formofficial business. use of the car for unofficial business means potential suspensions. in hudson county, they use them for any type of business, and the spokesperson seems to infer that because he was issued a car, he can use it whenever, even in the middle of the night in a county far away. He should imediately be suspened pending investigation.

This is not applicable to JC. JC water and sewer rates have already gone up by about 25% this year. The add you cited is for Bergen County. The BPU does not regulate JC water rates. OUr wonderful MUA does that job because of a deal Schundler made. Now, the MUA increases rates to help the city balance their budget. MUA has 15 minute public meetings where public input is non-existant--just ask ricardo from the hudson reporter. The MUA needs to be demolished political hack job by political hack job. Its a cesspool. Just take a look at the expensive cars in their parking lot while our sewage system backs up continously.

Re: Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini -- arrested in FBI sting -- resigns from board position

the us attorney's office always wants a rock-solid case against a high profile individual. Because Healy was not stupid and didn;t say all the right (illegal) things on the video, the prosecutors have to put together a more circumstantial case. That's why the others were arrested first, some will talk, Healy may be called as a witness in the Beldini trial, and additional info will be gathered that will likely be the nail in the coffin for Healy. SLow, methodical, careful--that's the US Attorneys way. But I must say that the vidwo with Healy acknowledging the 10 grand and additional 10 grand may very well be sufficient to put him in legal jeopardy: "thanks David, its good for us good for the city" or something like that. Very damaging.

Re: PSE&G Supply Energy Question
#14
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


commodity costs have been going up for years, but now they're going down and utilities are required to lower rates accordingly. See below for natural gas, and hopefully electric will be coming down soon as well.

New Jersey Board of Public Utilities
PRESS RELEASE
NJBPU APPROVES MORE THAN $500 MILLION IN RATEPAYER RELIEF FOR CUSTOMERS OF NATURAL GAS UTILITIES
(NEWARK, NJ) ? The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) today approved proposals from the state?s four natural gas utilities, which will result in annual savings of over $500 million for the state?s natural gas customers. The new rates reflect declining market costs for natural gas and will become effective immediately. The reduced rates apply to residential and small business natural gas customers of Public Service Electric and Gas, New Jersey Natural Gas, South Jersey Gas and Elizabethtown Gas. ?These are significant rate reductions that will provide immediate relief for customers struggling with the effects of the worldwide economic downturn,? said Board President Jeanne M. Fox. ?The present rate reductions complement Governor Corzine?s effort to grow New Jersey?s economy and provide support to families bearing the brunt of its decline.?
The amount of the rate reduction approved by the Board varies among the state?s natural gas utility companies. In some cases, the Board has already approved interim rate reductions over the course of the past year to reflect declining natural gas prices. With today?s reductions, New Jersey?s natural gas customers are benefiting from an overall reduction in natural gas prices ranging from 23.5% to 37.3% compared to a year ago.

Public Service Electric and Gas Company
The Board approved PSE&G?s proposal to reduce its rate from $0.990753 per therm to $0.88795 per therm (10.4%). The Company?s existing rate reflected interim reductions taken in January and March of this year. Those interim reductions reduced the bill for an average residential heating customer (using 1000 therms annually) by $106.41 annually. The new rate would result in an additional reduction of $155.91 per average residential customer. The rate reduction approved by the Board today will result in a reduction of $142.2 million in PSE&G?s annual revenue.

unfortunately competition on the residential side has not taken off sufficiently for various reasons, while commercial competition is booming. Most of the recent increases in your rates are a result of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives to try to stem global warming. So take advantage of solar if you can. PSE&G has a solar loan program to help you pay for a solar system. Most of us can't afford to put up solar, so try to make your home as energy efficient as possible, which can shave 30-40% off your bill. PSE&G has a home audit program that will find weak spots in your home and pathc them up if you wish. Its very inexpensive.

On your bill there is a number to the Board of Public Utilities. Call them first. Don't waste your time trying to get a hold PSE&G's customer service. You will get results much quicker.

not true xerxes. The laws have changed since then. Now, state and federal laws give Verizon the absolute right to entire a building to provide FIOS. Call the BPU's Office of Cable Television if you need more info.

Re: VERIZON FIOS

Things are different now because of a number of regulatory decisions. The FCC has ruled that exclusivity contracts bewteen a landlord and a video provider are illegal. Second, a state law requires Verizon to deploy FIOS. If the landlord resisits, the provider can petition the Board of Public Utilities. The key is getting Verizon to agree to petition the BPU because it will incur some legal costs in doing so. But if they do, they are most likely to be successful since they have the law on their side. Verizon's legal department is large and sophisticated, and if the building is large enough they are likely to do so.

Re: He's Back! Manzo running for Mayor - hopes the fifth time's the charm.

Fulop has to step up to the plate here. We have a reform slate (so far) under Manzo, a mayoral candidate who is a progressive on policy issues and a very hard and tireless worker, and City Hall courting Fulop big time because they know they're seriously vulnerable. Manzo's policies are almost all consistent with Fulop's agenda. In contrast, Healy has been a thorn in Fulop's side for four years. He's embarrassed our city over and over, and his city council allies have been nasty and unsupportive of Steve from the beginning. You should see the way Healy's folks are courting him now. Unfortuantely, I think its working. We can't wait four years so Fulop will be "well positioned" to run for Mayor. We need to sweep this city government clean of Healy now, with Steve as city council president to tackle the serious issues that we'll be facing. Waiting on the sidelines is not an option and is selfish considering what we will be facing. Its also a vote for Healy.

Fulop has no control over what happens with Montgomery. What he wants though is a fair process in determining what is developed there, rather than backroom deals by politically connected developers with ties to city hall.

Re: Fulop: Let's tighten our ethics rules

As a lawyer, I also concur that the Faulkner Act in no way preempts municipalities from going further than the state on ethics regulation. There would need to be an explicit preemption in the statute, or an implicit preemption by virtue of the statute proscribing detailed ethical standards that would "occupy the field" of ethics regulation. Neither is present in the Faulkner Act.

Its a simple red herring the double dippers are using to hide behind.

Note that JC is paying only about 10% of the tab for their local education. The state is paying the rest. This reduction is aid is going to continue to decrease until we pay 100% of our tab. Taxes will increase.

Time is now to reform on our local school board. Epps makes up to $300,000 a year, the place is full of political cronies, maintenance workers are pulling in $200,000 through overtime abuse. School board members, who oversee this criminal enterprices, are:

Re: Developer Pay-to-Play Press Release- Steven Fulop

Not too shy to talk


The mayor uses the tired argument that developers are important to JC therefore they must be allowed to participate in the "democratic process". Time after time, courts have declared that restrictions on political contributions do not inhibit the democratic process, but make it stronger. Reminds me of the arguments against the Mcain/Feingold statute. Fortunately, mostly those oppposing that statute were kicked out of Congress in November. The same will probably happen to Healy in '09.

I doubt Fulop was there for long since he has a real job. The others, well...the hotel rates and fees are expensive and a huge contingent from JC and the county went for many days. So no I don't find them funny or interesting since we're all paying for these bums.
