The council agenda is on line, I have never seen her name on the printed agenda for public comment. I haven't missed a meeting in a long time. Also, ordinances are recorded, when did Candice speak on an ordinance? Part of the reason, we have high taxes is because mayors in the past put newbie people on their slate and they don't know what they are doing. Candice would not be voting for Ward E, she would be voting on issues effecting the city. I don't want a newbie, I want a person who know how to ask intelligent questions and not to be told what to do. I personally find it appalling that anyone one runs for office and not attend the budget hearing, since the budget is one of the main jobs of the council.


Yvonne Balcer endorsed Dan Levin in the Jersey Journal.

The very issue he spoke out against, he is silent on. Sad.

What does Dan say about this "No pay to play" fund raiser debacle?


On Facebook, on a page called "Political Insider", someone named Daniel Levin who looks a lot like the former frame shop owner Daniel Levin from Jersey City, NJ said this yesterday in a thread about that very fundraiser and PAC:

"look up a pac, better jc inc., not a lot of money, but everything is wrong with it."

Someone else compared it to another situation and questioned a previous post. That same guy, Daniel Levin then said:

" its all wrong."

Oddly (or not, depending on how you view the world) that thread had 40-something posts in it last night. It has since been deleted back to four, the deletes include the exchange referenced above.

I guess that means we won't be hearing from Dynamic Dan the Reforming. Man until after the election.

Maybe some of these hundreds of residents and business owners will ask him the questions he won't answer here. Maybe some of them will report back to us what Dan is thinking about the boat anchor he enthusiastically attached himself to was it just four months ago?

Many thanks to the hundreds of Ward E residents who have promised to support Dan Levin's city council candidacy.

Dan's long history of activism and advocacy of open, transparent government has struck a chord with voters hungry for change, and residents know that Dan will continue to be an independent voice for reform and accountability no matter who is elected mayor.

Dan will continue to meet daily with residents and business owners over the coming months, and as always can also be reached at 201-364-1730 or dan@onejerseycity.org.

This falls under the Dan is still Dan rubric. Why choose an active, broad, widely-read but contentious medium, when you can talk to a small number of people who already believe the same things you do.

Who are these Osborne/ Fulop trolls who post this tiresome crap? And why do they believe "their" reform justifies subverting the democratic process by slandering the opposing reform candidate?


I'm sorry...who ever you are...I've lived in Jersey City since August of 2000. I sat on the board of my neighborhood association. I pay attention to local politics. And most important, I vote.

And as I've said in other posts on this site, I've voted for Dan Levin on more than one occasion. I've also outed myself as a former neighbor of Candice Osbourne.

So here's the thing...fellow anonymous poster calling the kettle black...had Dan not decided to team up with the very person he has railed against for all these years, I would have had a real conundrum on who to vote for as a resident of Ward E. I think both candidates are highly capable and either of them could more than do the job.

Speaking solely for myself, I need to have some respect for the person I vote for. Had your boy run as an independent, it would have gone down to the wire for me; in spite of my relationship with Candice. I may very well have chosen her, or I might have gone with Dan. It would have all come down to their respective campaigns.

But the minute Dan Levin joined up with the very man he was not so long ago demanding resign, he lost my respect and he lost my vote. So am I just another troll trashing a good man? I don't think so. I think I am an active citizen rightfully voicing my opinion in a democratic process.

I don't know who you are, if you're a private citizen like me, someone working for a campaign, or a paid hack. It doesn't really matter. But you and your candidate need to understand that choices have consequences. And Dan Levin made a choice that I, and many others who used to support him, can't get behind. If he is not happy about that, then he should have thought long and hard before he made his political bed.

Be honest Limper, do you live in JC? Why do you care if an uncontrollable reform candidate like Dan Levin gets elected Downtown?

I wonder how Dan felt being at the Healy kickoff where the Main theme of the day was
"Let's not let the Newcomers take over OUR city"

That must have been very painfull to listen to.

I agree that Webbie does a pretty good job of sorting things out, especially when things get heated.

It is going to get tougher as we get nearer to the election and the mud gets slung with gusto.

He used to delete more posts, and I have no objection to him doing that especially when posters stray off topic.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the JC List webmaster. For lots of reasons but mainly for even HAVING this website which allows us all to keep our finger on the pulse of Jersey City but also for apparently being FAIR about how things work here. Think about how easy it would have been for our webmaster NOT to disclose the multiple accounts of this guy outed below. I used to read HOBOKEN 411 until it turned into a soap box for that webmasters political agenda. And even if I had agreed with that particular take on Hoboken politics I still would have lost faith in being able to get close to the truth there, since I could see the bias. So thanks Webmaster!

Re: Open Letter to the Jersey City Municipal Council

Dear Councilmembers:

I am writing you as a longtime advocate for good-government practices and pay-to-play reform.

Civic JC, a group that I founded and led as president, worked with The Citizens Campaign and Diana Jeffrey, then of NJ Appleseed, to create and advance Jersey City's Contractor and Redevelopment Pay-to-Play Reform Ordinances adopted in 2008 and 2009. The reforms are contract-based and attempt to remove conflicts of interest and any appearance of such conflicts in the granting of no-bid contracts.

These reform ordinances have been successful, and have not been subject to dismantling, because they were not just tough but incorporated the best practices from around the state.

Based on past experience, I continue to support the conservative, yet effective approach of The Citizens Campaign to ensure that our Jersey City pay-to-play restrictions remain among the toughest in New Jersey by being strict, straightforward and easy to enforce.

Now, after three years, we are seeing a renewed and worthwhile effort to revisit, update and expand our pay-to-play reform laws.

I ask our city council to speedily approve and adopt Ordinance 12-157, proposed by Mayor Healy and based on a comprehensive set of recommendations from The Citizens Campaign and Civic JC, to become effective after next spring’s municipal elections. This would take the elections out of the picture and avoid politicization of the issue.

Thank you,

Daniel Levin
Founder and past president of Civic JC
Candidate for Jersey City Municipal Council

This thread has been going on for over two months and has 255 posts. I think at this point it's quiet because people have said what they want to say. I'm happy to keep the thread alive, if that's what you prefer HHend/JCFree.

Yes, I've been a volunteer for Fulop for several years as have hundreds of other people. I think people who are regulars on this board know me as a Fulop supporter. I also worked with Levin (Old Dan) on Civic JC.

Facts are what they are. Scream and moan and postulate about my motives, but I don't see any refutation of the facts presented, least of all by Dan. If I'm rewriting/editing out, Dan - please set me straight.

Wow, this thread sure did quiet down once webmaster blew up Crock/HCDeadO/40-other-users-being-the-same-one-person's spot. Since this slimy tactic represented the majority and most bellicose of the anti-Healy posturing here, perhaps seconded only by Fulop's campaign manager himself (who never disclosed his stake), the political talk here seems to have died considerably.

I guess we're to take it that the two guys fueling all of this stuff have been exposed. Empty pinata.

This is the kind of "crock" I would expect from a Healy operative. Your method of trying to"influence" the board is duplicitous. Any legitimate "claim" you may have made (and I thought some claims were good) has been polluted by your manner of communication.

You can't rail against the other side for being devious in a devious manner without losing all of your credibilty.

Ironically IMHO the legitimate good Mr Levin may bring to the council has been polluted by the manner he has chosen to try to get elected. For some of us the end does not justify the means.

Maybe it is because I'm not down in the political mud with some of you but I am an angry taxpayer that is voting against Healy. Sorry ....end of sermon

Complain all you want, anonymous Dan-fan jcmiles, but neither you nor Dan Levin speaks to the real concerns raised.

Dan has consistently refused to answer these questions, even with a lifeline to his political guru, Dr Seuss. If you and Danny Boy think he's going to skate by on this by the sheer force of his personality, you're out of touch with downtown voters. The same voters he should have talked to before leaping into Healy's embrace.

Refusing to address this problem is a crock. And the alliance with Healy is the real crock.

Wait . . . T-Bird is Team Fulops campaign manager? And he felt OK not to let us know? And he wants us to think there is no agenda behind his comments? Yes? Well Bullshit T-Bird. Try full disclosure next time. Talk about a crock. Your strategy was obvious from the incredulity of your accusations anyway. Now its just ridiculously obvious.

@blogcityblog, I'm not hearing people say that Dan would go back on everything he's stood for. Corruption - using the word loosely - is often more subtle than that. The problem for Dan is that when he makes such an abrupt, self-serving political about-face, it's reasonable to wonder what kind of line he'll draw on the next issue.

Someone already suggested that Dan's silence on the Liberty Harbor North zoning change was one of those places where Dan's newly discovered allegiance to Healy is causing him to draw a new line. That was the kind of political donation-inducing developer giveaway that the old Dan Levin - or anyone looking out for downtown residents and Jersey City taxpayers - would have been all over.

Is it his policies or his principles which are "evolving" to adapt to his new, Healy-led circumstances?

But just you wait. I'm sure that sometime in the campaign, Dan and Jerry will pick some nice safe issues for Independent Dan to take an opposing stance. It will make a nice show.

But until Dan actually bites the hand that is now feeding him, everybody should wonder just where Dan's new normal will be.

It's funny how some hard-bitten urbanites like JC list regulars can suddenly become virgins when confronted with a political reality check. Does anyone who really knows Dan Levin honestly think that he'd become a corrupt rubber stamp for Healy just because they run on the same ticket? I mean, really? Dan Levin? Handing out PILOTs to developer buddies and taking manila envelopes at local diners? C'mon.
