Re: Former JC School Board Candidate Arrested

Dan Levin has put in over a decade of public service as a citizen. He regularly attends council meetings, he dives into public documents and he has run for office three times. He realized that he had to make compromises to play in the cesspool. He was not happy about it. But White Knight Fulop did not care for him.

And now we are seeing the Prince With No Clothes. Awaiting the flames. Also, awaiting all that was promised by Fulop. Transparency?

Given that you have no idea what this person has done, posting a local issue to a local message board is certainly more than you have done.

The trolls on this site. They should all be ashamed.

Civility? Jersey City politics have never been civil. This board is a testament to that.

And to tell Yvonne to "move on" is a great mistake. The worst thing that could ever happen to Jersey City would be for the small handful of truly active citizens to "move on". This city is a mess. I would surely hope that our mayor and all of our new council members are prepared and willing to start work immediately, because we are already behind.

I'll take you at your word that you attend council meetings. Or even just watch them on TV.

I have butted heads with Yvonne over the years. I would not call her a friend. But I respect her time and her service. As well as Dan and Fletcher. The amount of service I have done for Jersey City is a spit in the bucket compared to all they have done. But when I was asked to serve, I did. I spent two years on the board of the Van Vorst Neighborhood Association. And I was educated and better for it.

You support Fulop and his ticket. That is fine. But when you attack these good people who have served their community for holding feet to the fire, I would say you are the troll. Yvonne has been on the back of every politician that has walked through the doors of city hall and I'm glad she has. If we had 100 more Yvonnes, we might not be in such a mess today. This hole is wide and deep. The new administration is wasting time if they wait until July to start working. The last council meeting proves that point.

Hey! I have a great idea! Why don't YOU run for office and we'll see what Jersey City thinks of YOUR ideas?

Politics is not sports. A win at the ballot box hardly equals change. If you disagree with Yvonne, show up at a council meeting and wait for your turn to speak.

Or you can just spout off from behind a keyboard to a very limited audience and see how that works out.

The people you dismiss are Yvonne and Fletcher. They regularly attend council meetings. To call their years of public service "campaign tactics" tells me that you are in no position to criticize them. Go to a council meeting and have a discussion with them. They will happily engage you.

This thread is undignified. Take a hint from Healy: When you lose an election the proper attitude is respect for the will of the voters and a pledge to be constructive and cooperative. If you continue the campaign, criticizing the voters and taking cheap shots at the winner, you benefit no one.


Politics does not end at the ballot box. These people that you would dismiss are the citizens that show up to council meetings, write letters and are involved in local politics every day. This sporting event attitude of "WE WON!" and job done is why JC is such a mess.

Here's my question. Why would someone who doesn't live in Jersey City contribute the legal limit of $10,400 (and his wife did the same), to a Jersey City mayoral candidate? As well as spend an undisclosed amount more through his PAC? Altruism?

No it didn't. And it will likely be a hole in Mayor Elect Fulop's council. But it would appear he will get most, if not all, of the rest of his council. So we should see a lot of changes very soon, I would think.

What has Dan actually succeeding in doing?


Seriously? Have you ignored everything that has been posted here?

I served two years on the Van Vorst Neighborhood Association board. I have been to and spoken at numerous city council meetings and I have given Dan a check every time he has ran for office. Dan has worked tirelessly for Jersey City for over a decade without a position and without a paycheck. And, again, just scroll down for the endorsement by the three leaders of the JC arts community.

Dan Levin is one of the best things that has happened to downtown Jersey City. Just look at his record. Just look at his accomplishments. This thread is packed full of them.

I want Dan to represent me. I don't work for the city, I am not a political operative, nor do I work for Dan. I am a dog walker. Althea will confirm this. I have known Dan for over two decades. Dan wants to make Jersey City a better place for all of us. But he can't do it alone. No one can. Your vote counts. I am voting for Dan Levin. I have seen what he can do. He deserves a seat at the table. But nothing changes if all you do is cast your vote and wait for the next election to make changes. GET INVOLVED! Attend meetings! Write letters! Call your politicians! MAKE NOISE! And not just in the weeks before an election.

That's how Dan does it. I admire him. He's a leader, a doer and I am voting for him. I hope you will too.

Were you there? OK, let's say you were. 150 people showed up. Action takes people. 150 is not enough for a recall. 10 times that is not enough.

Election day is Tuesday. I hope all of you realize that, regardless of the winner, if you want real reform, your vote is just the beginning.

Dan Levin has been working for Ward E constantly for well over a decade. What have you done for your community?

Well, I can''t speak for artists for Healy, but I have already made clear my feelings towards him. As far as artists for Levin, just scroll down to see an endorsement by perhaps the three most important voices in the JC art scene.

How dare you? I was at Dan's rally to recall Healy! You weren't there! Where were you? Look at the the facts. Fulop is handing over the JC schools to Wall Street. I guess you're OK with that.

Where were all of you when Dan tried to recall Healy?

The Fulop campaigners sound an awful lot like the Schundler backers from almost two decades ago. I think you might get your wish. (And I believe he is the least worst of the candidates.) Schundler privatized our utilities. If you have children in the JC school system, I hope you will be paying attention, attend schoolboard meetings and get involved. Getting your candidate in office is not a solution, merely a first step. I beg you to hold his feet to the fire.

Dan Levin claims and reality.

Claim: During my time as president of the Harsimus Cove Association, we spearheaded the creation of the hugely successful multi-use plaza at the Grove Street Path Station. This plaza now regularly hosts a farmers market, art market, and live entertainment.

Claim: I was a founding board member of the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy, which landmarked the Powerhouse and worked towards redeveloping it into an arts district. I also founded and led as president the good government organization Civic JC that created, developed, and led the effort to have Jersey City adopt the Contracting and Redevelopment Pay-to-Play ordinances ? the toughest ethics reforms in the state.

Claim: I co-founded Bike JC, which organizes the Jersey City Ward Tour; every year 700 bicyclists ride through all six wards. We also worked with the city to develop a bike lane plan, which will be implemented this summer. Not only will this provide bicyclists with a safe place on our streets, but it will reduce speeding. Most recently, I worked with the city to have the Liberty State Park footbridge that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy replaced by FEMA.

Just want to make sure I understand the problem here. So after over a decade of on the ground community activism, Dan decided to put his name on the ballot in a prominent position. Anyone with any knowledge of JC politics knows that is, unfortunately, how it works here. For all Dan has done, Fulop went with one of his campaign organizers for the Ward E council position.

Dan has skipped the Healy bull sessions. Your problem with this is ...
