I think people should call this place and ask them why they are letting a felon, known for corrupting our democratic process by manipulating seniors, around the elders entrusted into their care.

Anyone know the number of the JC Care Center? They should have to answer for themselves as well.

Next stop 130 Summit Ave. corner of Fairmount at the J.C. Care Center for the indigent and disabled. Some of those people are incoherent as well.

Ousted Jersey City Mayor Gets 33 Months in Prison

By JOSEPH F. SULLIVAN,
Published: June 25, 1992


NEWARK, June 24— Gerald McCann, the ousted Mayor of Jersey City, was sentenced today to 33 months in prison for defrauding a Florida savings and loan association of $240,000, but he was allowed to remain free until Sept. 30 so he can attend his sister's wedding.

Mr. McCann was also ordered to pay $170,000 in restitution to the Resolution Trust Corporation, the Federal agency that took over the assets of the savings association after it failed.

Before his sentencing in Federal District Court, Mr. McCann turned to address his mother, two sisters and a brother sitting in the front row of the courtroom. "I want to apologize to my family for any suffering or embarrassment they have gone through for the past year or so," he said. "I also want to apologize to the city for any embarrassment I caused."

Mr. McCann attributed his problems to a failure to communicate better with officials of the Southern Floridabanc Savings and Loan Association, which entrusted Mr. McCann with $300,000 in 1986 to bid on a marina project at Liberty State Park in Jersey City during a period between his two terms as Mayor when he headed a consulting company.

The judge, John C. Lifland, agreed that Mr. McCann should have kept the savings association better informed of his activities, but he said he did not know what difference that would have made in the end. Mr. McCann was convicted of systematically diverting the money to pay unauthorized salaries to himself and two associates and to finance a luxurious life style until the money ran out in 1987. No bid was ever submitted on the marina proposal.

Mr. McCann also was convicted of obstructing the investigation of his activities and of trying to cover up the fraud by filing false income tax returns.

The United States Attorney for New Jersey, Michael Chertoff, had argued for a stiffer sentence for the 42 year-old ex-Mayor, describing him as arrogant and unrepentant. He called Mr. McCann "one of the most privileged people in the state, who was selected twice for high office, the Mayor of Jersey City in 1981 and 1989, and selected by a bank in Florida to represent its interests."

However, Mr. Chertoff said, at the very beginning of the arrangement with the bank Mr. McCann "had it in mind to betray all trust and to consider himself number one and the only one."

He said Mr. McCann "lied right in the teeth of the evidence" during the trial and continued to protest his innocence after the trial. He said Mr. McCann also attacked the motives of Government prosecutors as politically inspired. Background Investigation

Judge Lifland agreed that the factors Mr. Chertoff cited were accurate and could support a stiffer sentence, but he said he weighed them against the strong support of Mr. McCann's family and friends. The 33 months' sentence was the minimum recommended by Federal probation officials after a lengthy background investigation of Mr. McCann. Mr. McCann's lawyers argued for a sentence of 14 months while Mr. Chertoff was seeking at least 47 months.

The usually voluble Mr. McCann was led away for processing by Federal marshals after the sentencing and avoided reporters by leaving through a door used by marshals to escort prisoners to and from court.

As Mr. McCann's family was leaving the courtroom, his mother, Elizabeth, was asked for her reaction to the sentencing. She shrugged her shoulders and smiled but said nothing.

Mr. McCann's lawyer, Matthew P. Boylan, said he thought his client had a favorable reaction to the sentence, though he did not discuss it before he left. Mr. Boylan described his client as "a very brilliant but erratic man whose ambition often exceeds his ability to implement."

Another defense lawyer, John Whipple, said he would soon request that Mr. McCann remain free on bail while he appeals his conviction. Judge Lifland delayed the start of Mr. McCann's sentence after he received a letter from Mr. McCann's sister, Barbara, telling of her wedding in September and asking that her brother be allowed to attend.

Just a reminder of the stakes here:

Gerry McCann is a current member of the JC Board of Ed who is up for re-election on April 20. He is also an ex-con. The members of the Board of Ed work voluntarily, for free; but they have at their fingertips a $600 million annual budget with which they have a certain amount of discretion to dole out contracts as they see fit. This is not my opinion. These are facts.

My opinion is that it is crucial that folks get out to vote, and vote out McCann and whoever is on his ticket (Dehere?) to restore some trust in how our tax dollars are spent.


Vote April 20th! Better yet, over the next few weeks remind 20 friends and relatives about the stakes in this election and encourage them to vote on behalf of the kids of JC or just in the interest of their own wasted (yet rising) tax dollars.

April 20th, polls open 2-9pm!

I really like the PDF for the political flier. McCann Bashing Flier Some more interesting facts about McCann. It seems he was brought into the election as some kind of "senior citizen manipulator" which supposedly was how he won the board of ed election.

McCann's candidate loses in Rutherford, at least partly due to McCann's involvement.

The election in Rutherford that Mccann was involved with is over.McCanns candidate lost by almost three hundred votes.

This was a special election because in november Gerry's candidate
only lost by single digets.Gerry than began a program of intimidation and harassment of senior citizens who voted by absentee.

Every candidate he touches loses.

That's how McCann got elected to the JCBOE. He and his thugs strongarmed seniors in nursing homes in Jersey City to fill out absentee ballots. The man is a total lowlife.

Actually -- the one being idealistic is you. T-bird is the pragmatist in this discussion. He's talking about real problems with a candidate for office, Gerry McCann; and you're throwing generalities about politicians' egos back at him. Further, he's recommending a real solution, voting McCann's felonious self out of office. One can agree or disagree with that. But idealistic it is not.

Regardless of past accomplishments, a convicted felon should not have a hand in how a $600million budget is spent, especially if the potential losers in all of this are our children.


We can debate semantics, I call it realism, you can call it what ever you like, bottom line Gerry has nothing to prove, go back to my original point, no need to stray from the subject.I prefer someone who can get the job done, to me thats being pragmatic, who cares whats in their closet?.
GET REAL!

No more - time to flush the toilet. Time to insist on a minimum level of decency. Time for our schools to be lead by people who live honest, decent lives and serve out of a sense of obligation to make their community a better place. That's why I'll vote for Waterman, Lester and one other like-minded candidate TBD on April 20 and hope to God that McCann makes it down the drain for good this time.

Agreed. However, many of the "concerned citizens" on this board talk a good game and then never show up at the polls.

Voter participation in the school board election is abysmal--something less than 10% of eligible voters, I think. My polling location only gets about 40-50 people voting, when it could/should be hundreds.

It wouldn't take much of a groundswell to change the makeup of the board, but it would mean getting enough people to vote in an organized fashion for candidates other than the status quo. It seems the only voter mobilization that gets done, however, is by those who precisely endorse the status quo, because they have a vested interested--their own pockets.

I fear however that the 3 incumbents will be reelected. There is so much apathy in the City's electorate when it comes to school board elections. Dehere and Valentin are both dimwitted fools and, as you say, McCann is the resident felon/sociopath/narcissist.

In that regard, McCann and Epps can retire the Narcissism Trophy.

Unfortunatley, the reality and the wake up call is that "NO" politician comes with a Halo attached to their head if thats what you expect in a politician,than you might be best served voting in a Priest.

Prime Example, Bill Clinton, lets face it, he's not going to inducted into SaintHood by any stretch of the imagination, but was able to get the Job done while being "The Prez"...

History isn't going to judge a politician by what they liked to smoke , snort, or jump into bed with, rather what their accomplishments were or lack thereof.

So if anything we need to rid ourselves of these dilussions of "The perfect candidate" and wake up because thats reality!
