Healy and Bush are from the same mould - Both bought by corporate America!

Oldest trick in the book.Raise taxes three years in a row and use the money to lower or stabilize taxes just before the election.

Healy tricking us about taxes

Is Mayor Jerry Healy playing a shell game with the taxpayers of Jersey City? The answer is yes. Healy sent out a tax bill increasing taxes for this quarter $200 to $300 on an estimated city budget. As a former councilman, the mayor does not have to raise taxes.

Healy could have used the same tax rate as last year, as our council did. Later in the year, the tax rate could have been adjusted when the final budget is adopted. Healy, in his tax letter, blamed the schools and county for the increase. Healy increases taxes in order to create a surplus for next year to lower taxes in his re-election bid.

The mayor has $39 million from Honeywell for development of the west side of Jersey City, which could be use to lower taxes. Healy believes in spending, spending, spending. If this increase stays for the next three quarters, taxes would increase over 33 percent since Healy became mayor.

The bottom line is taxes are not stable and we are paying higher taxes than last year.

FORMER ACTING MAYOR JOSEPH RAKOWSKI
