Making Jersey City like Detroit would suit Healy just fine - that way, under Distressed City status he can continue to have the grown-ups at the state level fund the JC schools, allowing him to keep granting PILOTS on the waterfront (for whatever crumbs the slick Manhattan developers are throwing the tipsy NJ bumpkin major under the table ).


Come to think of it, the comparison is really apt - Detroit's mayor is a knucklehead too - google Kwame Kilpatrick

My simpleminded response to "Almost two-thirds of the poll's respondents said they have "no plans to leave,"" is that 1/3 of the Hudson County residents do have plans to leave. If anywhere close to 33% of Hudson County's residents follow through on their plans to leave, the claim that it is "attractive" or "stable" seems dubious.

The article is self-contradictory. Even by the standards of the Northeast suffering huge domestic born out-migration over the past decades; anything close to 33% of the people leaving is Detroit-like.

Poll: More than half want out, but most will stay in Hudson

More than half of Hudson County residents say they would leave the county if they could, according to a recent Jersey Journal/New Jersey City University poll.

But don't expect a mass exodus.

Almost two-thirds of the poll's respondents said they have "no plans to leave," evidence for the poll's author, NJCU political science professor Fran Moran, that they have "fairly deep roots" in Hudson County.

Twenty percent said they were born and raised in the county, while 35 percent have lived here for 10 or more years.

"It would appear that Hudson is an attractive place to live," Moran said.

One reason for the population's apparent stability, despite its professed wanderlust, could be that most Hudson residents say they are able to keep their monthly housing costs under control.

"About half the residents in the county appear to be abiding by general guidelines for housing and are keeping housing costs at or under the 30 percent of income recommended," Moran said.

As for those who say they would take a one-way ticket out of the county, why aren't they making plans for it to happen anytime soon?

"There might be lots of folks in Hudson playing the lottery and auditioning for game shows," Moran said.

Hmm... the article said that if they COULD leave, they would. The people who want to leave but aren't probably can't afford to, or have work/family ties in the area.

And as for your Bush comment... you do realize that 67% of residents in Hudson County voted for Kerry right?
