Healy's long term strategy is to close all the libraries and ask for pay lags from everyone. Just keep kicking the can down the road.

you can read the full text of the speech here -

while I am sure many of us could find things in it to pick apart, what concerns me most - where or what is "our long-term budget reduction strategy" that he refers to on page 2?

Just came back from the speech.

Healy got through it with no flops. Proved he could read from a teleprompter for 37 minutes. Still claiming that his administration is competent and that taxes are stable. Oy !!!

Finished the speech with a saying from the Buddha !!! Wonder who thought that up for him ?

Jersey City Mayor Healy to deliver State of the City address
March 15, 2011, 10:05 AM
By Terrence T. McDonald/The Jersey Journal

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy will give a State of the City address tomorrow night in the City Hall Council Chambers.

Healy hasn't given a State of the City address since February 2009. He skipped it last year because his 2009 inaugural address touched on many of the same topics as a State of the City address, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill has said.

In tomorrow's speech, Healy will touch on the city's crime rate, how city officials are tackling this year's economic challenges and other issues, Morrill said.

The State of the City address will begin tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the second floor council chambers at City Hall, 280 Grove St.

Here is another interesting article about 2009 'State of the City' address...

Addressing the issues
Healy talks of safety, new buildings in speech
by Ricardo Kaulessar
Reporter Staff Writer
Feb 22, 2009 | 500 views | 0 | | 1 | |

Mayor Jerramiah Healy said he?d put more police on the streets and talked about future development projects in his 40-minute ?State of the City? address on Wednesday at City Hall.

?The state of our city is strong,? Healy said, ?and continues to be a beacon in these difficult economic times.?

Healy is up for reelection in the May 12 municipal election.

While some critics said Healy ignored important topics during the address, others gave it accolades.

Public safety first

There have been four murders and one hit-and-run death in Jersey City so far this year, and murder and rape statistics increased in 2008 from the year before. Many residents have been concerned that crime is getting worse and that Healy has been putting a sunny face on the issue.

Thus, on Wednesday, Healy started off the address by talking about public safety.

The mayor said he has ?instructed? Police Chief Thomas Comey to increase the amount of police officers assigned to street patrol by 15 percent starting March 1.

Healy also touted construction of the new West District Police Station on Jackson Avenue, scheduled to start in three months, and vowed to build another new police station in the Journal Square/Heights area in coming years.

He also pledged more outreach by the police to the community, to gather intelligence on criminal activity and deal with other quality-of-life issues.

?Our residents often have the best intelligence as to where and when criminal activity takes place,? Healy said.

Rising up

The mayor then detailed several upcoming development projects in the city, with special emphasis on his ?vision? for revitalizing Journal Square, referring to the redevelopment plan that may bring 10,000 residential units and numerous retail outlets to 244 acres of property.

?As this vision is executed, the economic vitality of the Square will be enhanced by expanding every level of residential and commercial activity in Journal Square,? Healy said.

However, when it came to an arts district downtown known as the Powerhouse Arts District, he only spoke briefly. He said the city was continuing plans for a ?vibrant? Powerhouse Arts District and pointed to pending stabilization of the old Hudson and Manhattan Powerhouse. However, several developers in that district have applied to have their projects included in subdistricts that would free them from zoning guidelines for a certain amount of affordable and artist housing.

Also, Healy lauded 369 units of affordable housing currently under construction throughout the city, and 350 more in the planning stages. Continuing the ?affordable? theme, Healy said that the municipal tax rate will not increase by the time the proposed $460.2 budget is adopted sometime in April.

At the end of his address, Healy talked of paving more roads, working with the Board of Education to implement an independent curriculum audit of the Jersey City school district, and encouraging businesses to stop using plastic bags.

Not in the address

Some residents appreciated the address, while others said Healy sidestepped important issues.

Downtown residents Liz Long and Holly Tienken, co-founders of a local reusable bag company, Bag the Habit, were honored by Healy during the speech for their work. Afterward, they credited him for his recent ?green? initiatives for government operations. The City Council recently passed four initiatives to make city cars and operations run in a more environmentally friendly way.

Tienken said she felt ?well-informed? by the address.

Jersey City native Daryn Martin, a longtime advocate for affordable housing, wanted to hear more discussion of that issue, as well as promises to build more.

Mayoral candidate and good-government activist Dan Levin said Healy gave a ?comprehensive? speech, but took issue with him mentioning the word change three dozen times. Levin said Healy and his administration do not represent change.
_____________

?I think he did a real nice job.? ? Steven Fulop
________

?He didn?t talk about anything relating to improving the operation of government; he didn?t mention the city adopting the state?s ethics code; he didn?t mention anything about pay-to-play reform,? Levin said. ?I?m looking for a mayor who is first and foremost serving the people, not special interests.?

But Healy?s speech won over one of the mayor?s biggest critics ? City Councilman Steven Fulop.

?I think he did a real nice job,? Fulop said. ?I think he has a lot to be proud of, and he highlighted a lot of the positive things that are happening in the city.?

Have you seen Healy lately ? He seems to be hitting the sauce big time. It will be a miracle if the speech lasts more than 20 minutes. He'll have to speak slowly and thank/acknowledge a lot of hacks in the crowd.

Now that's some spin! "There wasn't one last year, Morrill said, because the mayor's inaugural address from the previous year touched on many of the same topics a State of the City address would have."

Come on Jennifer, we all know why he didn't hold one last year....Healy and Co. was being raked over the coals by the FBI and any sort of speech "touting his accomplishments" would have been met with rotten eggs.

Do us all a favor and make it short and sweet.

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy will give a "State of the City" address next month that will outline what he believes are his top accomplishments as mayor.

It will be Healy's first major address to the city since his Inaugural Address in 2009.

City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said Healy will address topics common in such addresses, including public safety and the city budget. Healy will also tout initiatives he wants to tackle in the future, Morrill said.

Healy has not given a State of the City address since February 2009. There wasn't one last year, Morrill said, because the mayor's inaugural address from the previous year touched on many of the same topics a State of the City address would have.

Healy will give his State of the City address on March 16 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 280 Grove St.
