Remember this Tuesday the winner needs 50% + 1 which quite simply means that for everyone who comes out to vote and who votes for someone other than Healy causes that much more of a probable runoff election.If it is a large turnout I believe the incumbent will have a very difficult time.

Get out and vote your choice of candidate.


+1

Strong turnout should work against the Healy team. Their voting block is probably pretty fixed. It's going to be the people upset with the status quo who decide late in the game to vote who could make the difference. At least that's my hope...

Does anyone know the hours for voting on Tues - the NJ Elections web site indicates 6 am - 8 pm for other upcoming elections (McNair high school is my polling place). I'm assuming it's the same for Tues?

No you do not hang out with the wrong crowd!

+1 on your assessment of Dan Levin.

if the candidates put in as much effort into running this city as they do campaigning, we'd all be sitting pretty. This week alone all three councilman running for the heights seat have knocked on my door, and manzo and healy's guys have rang my door more than once this week.

I also met Levin at the 9th street congress elevator. First mayoral candidate i saw just pressing the flesh w/ out the fanfare of an event, although i'm sure some of the others were other places. Something about Levin alone handing out his own flyers before AND after work at the elevator made me smile. ALso the fact that after work he said to me, "oh already got you going in". 9 hours later and he remembered, stuff like that leaves an impression.

I like what he stands for, i think he's a good guy, i just hope he sticks around for the long haul, b/c i really don't think he can beat the machine that is run by healy and manzo. Although i would be pleasantly surprised if he did.

Oh, and i got the sample ballot the other day with all the teams' mottos if you will.... "change we can see", "change we can believe in", "change we can afford" blah, blah, blah. change, change, change, shmange.

Ha! Ditto K-Lo.

I still think Levin stands a chance of a run-off with Healy, but Tuesday will tell all.

It will be awesome when the election is over and all these anti-Healy trolls just go away. I am not voting for him, but if he wins the butthurt around here will be monumental.

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy Will Run Again

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Political experts say the race for mayor of New Jersey's second-largest city features some familiar faces and is likely to have a familiar outcome.

They expect Jersey City Mayor incumbent Jerramiah Healy to ride his $3.1 million campaign war chest to victory on Tuesday.

Francis Moran, a political science professor at New Jersey City University, says Healy hasn't hurt himself badly enough to lose.

Montclair State University political science professor Brigid Harrison says the crowded field of five candidates works against leading challenger Louis Manzo by dividing the anti-Healy vote.

The 58-year-old Healy has been mayor since winning a special election to serve out the remaining term of Glenn Cunningham, who died in office in 2004.

Are there independent polls out, (what is the Jersey Journal for?)

I'm voting for whoever has the best chance of beating Healy.

IMHO, the only person who really stands a chance against the Healy Machine is Manzo. As much as I like what Levin stands for, it's going to take at least another 4 years for people to take notice (throughout the city). The most likely outcome, will be a run-off between Manzo and Healy. Unfortunately, money is what decides elections and Healy has spent millions in an attempt to make people forget the last 4 years..........

I agree with you WG, but sadly "them" is us. Fewer than 25,000 people voted last time? That's outrageous! I don't know the exact number, but if I prorate the Hudson County voter turnout last November, there are more than 100,000 registered voters in Jersey City, so 75% of the people gave their tacit approval of status quo last election - they are "Them". (Okay, there are probably several thousand registered voters who should be purged from the rolls, but you get the point.)

Given all that is at stake over the next four years, including:

A looming real estate revaluation
Bloated municipal budget during a recession
The need to address the school situation and greater local funding responsibility for the schools

it shocks me that people can't find ten minutes out of the fifteen hours the polls are open to get out and vote. Clearly there won't be long lines if historical turnout is any indicator. Much, much more is at stake next Tuesday (with far greater personal consequences) than voting for the President or even your Senator or Congressman.

Them will continue to be Them as long as We continue to be We. So for God's sake: GET PEOPLE OUT TO VOTE!!

The results you show were for the special election that was to fill a 6 month term.. That election was held on Nov 12th 2004 and was during a Presidential, Congressional and Senate election as well.

This is the results from the May 2005 primary: (very weak voter turnout) I think the totals were about 25,000 ish

The numbers below are 95% of the precincts reporting
Jerramiah Healy----- 18,329---- 75.08%
Melissa Holloway---- 4,638----- 19.00%
Alfred Marc Pine----- 1,420----- 5.82%
Personal Choice----- 27------- 0.11%
