RFK was an associate of Roy Cohn who was employed by Senator Joe McCarthy.

My point ..Rebecca is her own woman and she be applauded for her accomplishments.

Interesting that Solomon seems to have really galvanized the Healy/Matsoukidis camp, many of course being outside of downtown. Although getting the "angry" crowd didn't go over well for Matso, I wonder if Solomon can leverage their support to victory here?

There are a lot of folks in the Symes camp who are - and one Solowsky is worth three Habibs, four on a good day. You don't need the mayor's endorsement when you are handed a lot of his infrastructure. Also - egress into high rise buildings to roam and knock on doors that is not available to other candidates does lend credence to the notion that Symes is the developer's candidate.

There are all sorts of ways to support a candidate without endorsing. The fact that there was a $300k contribution from Dixon to the Fulop super PAC probably makes the optics rather poor for an endorsement.

Rather, the Solowskys, Habibs and Bertolis (and whatever gets spent from independent expenditure accounts) can accomplish as much or more as an endorsement.

"Good Friends!" Hey, it worked for Senator Menendez!

I'm KIDDING! I'm KIDDING! To be clear, I am NOT implying that James is receiving contributions and other favors to get young models to the U.S. on student visas!

If there is no Stroock contribution on the ELEC then I will say that was my mistake.

In the meantime, I am trying to figure out the quid pro quo for Rebecca (an allegation of illegal conduct). Given that the Mayor has STILL not endorsed her (to the frustration of many in the Symes campaign, I suspect) he has an awful funny way of showing the "quo."

yes, this is a disbursement, not a contribution as the other poster alleged. and there was a contribution from the managing director of JEN Partners, an NYC private equity firm (that does invest in real estate). however, I do not believe that donor works for the law firm that received the payment. many of the large donations are from friends of his family including his late father. funny, that I have criticized for not being very good at fundraising and almost solely raising money from JC in mostly small donations, so James is getting beat up for doing what I should have been doing which is reaching out to family, friends, friends of family and parents and school contracts. I get it.

I looked through his elec reports on the NJ Election Enforcement website and cannot find any donations from attorneys that work at that law firm. Could you please point them out to me since I did not find any and you said plural.

Does that mean James is beholden to the real estate developers? Or that even worse, he is giving a "kickback" of business for campaign contributions, i.e. pay to play? Of course not. But that is the logic that is being used to demean his opponent.

Look at the first post in this thread and ask yourself this question -
Who cannot spell Kushner and knows what a push poll is?
The same person who cannot spell Solomon and knows what opo research is.

I had to google both terms.

You mean like this?

"Seen as a mastermind of street campaigning, Bertoli is known to have a hatful of tricks that he has used in campaigns dating back to when he dared to take on Mayor Nicholas Sacco in North Bergen in the early 1990s. Bertoli is known for digging up old facts and using them for best results."

http://hudsonreporter.com/view/full_s ... ns_lead_story_left_column

Or this?

"Political consultant Tom Bertoli, a senior advisor to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop testified in a deposition last January. He described Plaintiff Lane Bajardi as a senior advisor like himself, and conversations with Beth Mason and Mr. Bajardi about suing bloggers during her spring 2009 mayoral race. No Defendants had websites but Hoboken “bloggers” in general were considered a problem and Bertoli outlined the discussions to file “frivolous lawsuits” and draining defendants who were getting in Mason’s way for higher office"

https://www.scribd.com/document/291340 ... ior-Court-August-4th-2014

Or this?

"According to a January 9, 2014 deposition in the Bajardi v Pincus civil litigation, decades long Hudson County political operative Tom Bertoli describes how the use of "frivolous lawsuits" was broached against the escalating impact of Hoboken residents commenting online, re: bloggers."

http://www.hobokenhorse.com/2015/03/b ... mer-senior-political.html

The fact that someone of Tom Bertoli's stature took the time to try and discredit what I am saying only adds weight to my words.

Watch this space.

MrRogers is a paid political operative who lives far from Jersey City. He does not visit JCList to provide or seek neighborly advice or weigh in on the latest pizza shop, as a perusal of his posting history demonstrates. His participation in this thread is by far the most cynical aspect of this entire conversation.

Separately - how do the expressions "Not for Sale James Solomon" and and "Unbought Unbossed James Solomon" necessarily demean Rebecca? It is possible to say those things and merely be pointing out positive attributes about yourself rather than it being an attack on someone else.

Well I have been bullied and called stupid online by Solomon
supporters and I saw someone else in my neighborhood be
bullied by one of them on the Nextdoor app last weekend.
Also I directly commented on a residential issue I have a concern
about and I got ignored by Solomon himself.

Also I saw the following signs posted on a resident fence this morning
"Not for Sale James Solomon" and and "Unbought Unbossed James Solomon"
so that proves to me he is either behind, or supports, the
vicious and untrue campaign attacks on his opponent. Or at
the least it has inspired at least some of his supporters to spread lies
and bully people which he is not getting up and out to stay stop to.

That does not impress me, and that does not represent me, and
I will not be voting for him. I expect candidates to present their
qualifications not tear each other down and I want someone who
will respond to me and listen to me when I have an issue, concern,
etc I want to discuss.

That is my opinion, go talk to the candidates and make your own
personal choice.

The other side is smart enough to know you bury opposition research in your polling firm, or call it "social media" or whatever... You don't actually expect anyone to believe Symes hasn't done opposition research on Solomon. Probably being done by an IE, right?

Yet if you look at his elect you will not see any paid opo company.You will see a close to ten thousand dollars paid to a NY law firm.
Why would a Jc council candidate need to pay a NY law firm that kind of money unless he was using them to hide paying for the
Opo. Kind of the same way the DNC paid a law firm to dig up the dirt on Bernie.
Soloman is phony reformer who will be running for Mayor on day one.

It's difficult to get a real feel for the dynamic of this race. Is this a NIMBY (Solomon) vs pro-development (Symes) race? Are both generally pro-development with different nuances?

I'm ridiculously pro-developement but feel like we should be leveraging more concessions from the developers. Maybe something like an infrastructure bank that all new developments would be required to pay into. The waterfront doesn't need abatements but I think they could still be useful for the western fringes of Downtown.

I've heard the term "smart development" used by both campaigns but I don't know if that's a NIMBY code word for "no new buildings, EVER!".

Who are the neighborhood associations lining up behind? I would assume Solomon. Does anybody know? That goes a long way in determining my vote.

333 River Street is a rental building not a condominium. Give it a google. It's on the world wide web.

While your at it  google the slogan  Unbought and Unbossed. The title of Ms Shirley Chisholms book and her catch phrase.

I'm sure Ms. Chisholm would not mind Mr. Solomon hijacking her slogan and title of her book. They have alot in common..expect Ms. Chisholm was not a rich kid from the suburbs who fudged her resume, expoited  her cancer and never held a full time job.

Solomon should change his slogan to

Unscrupuious and Unemployed!
