New face on the council
Hallanan sworn in to replace Ramchal in Ward B

In a vote that has huge political implications for the future of Jersey City, the City Council voted 7 to 1 Thursday to appoint John J. Hallanan III as the councilman for Ward B. Hallanan was nominated by Mayor Steven Fulop.

Hallanan, an attorney whose family has lived in Jersey City for generations, fills the seat vacated by Khemraj ?Chico? Ramchal, who resigned as part of a plea deal to avoid jail time as result of a car accident in March 2015. He will serve until a special election is held for the seat on Nov. 8.

Although all every member of the City Council sang his praises, his appointment became a political issue when councilmen Richard Boggiano and Michael Yun questioned the selection process.

Yun said his ?no? vote was to protest the process used to select Hallanan, not against Hallanan himself.

Both councilmen said they believed Mayor Steven Fulop, who nominated Hallanan, had overstepped his authority and intruded on a process that the state constitution assigns to the council.
This is interesting... "Conflict behind the scenes Informed sources said, however, the appointment was racked with a behind the scenes conflict over two ordinances the council tabled last month that deal with working conditions for private employees servicing office buildings. Some members of the council had reservations about the legality of aspects of the two ordinances, which pertain to employment conditions for private businesses. Behind-the-scenes negotiations ensued, the sources said, in an attempt to trade Hallanan?s appointment for a majority vote to pass those ordinances. Those sources said the negotiations failed, and left some residual bitterness on the council that threaten to cause a leadership change at the reorganization meeting in early July when the council gets to vote on president and other key assignments.

When Boggiano asked for resumes, Rolando told him to knock it off, why would he say this?
