Fulop out-of-town party plans have critics grumbling

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Mayor Steve Fulop's critics are taking aim at the mayor's plans to commemorate the end of summer with barbecues in Paramus and Freehold.

The mayor's camp says the shindigs — an end-of-summer party in Paramus on Sept. 17 and a fall kick-off in Freehold on Sept. 24 — are aimed at former Jersey City residents.

The locations of the parties have Fulop's local critics reiterating their claims that the mayor, who is expected to seek the Democratic nomination for governor next year, is not focused on the city he governs.

What do N.J. voters know of possible 2017 governor hopefuls? Very little, poll shows

...According to the survey, a fictional personality in New Jersey politics, Matt Alexander, is nearly just as well known as Fulop or Murphy. Alexander received 18 percent name recognition, compared to Murphy's 26 percent and Fulop's 25 percent.

"The takeaway? Both men have a way to go in introducing and defining themselves to voters..."

Paterson assemblywoman all but announces run for N.J. governor

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal
on May 21, 2016 at 7:09 PM, updated May 21, 2016 at 9:11 PM

JERSEY CITY -- Certainty about whether Assemblywoman Shavonda Sumter, D-Passaic, will be running for governor dramatically grew today -- though not exactly as she planned it.

At an event in Jersey City this morning where Sumter was scheduled to speak, state Sen. Sandra B. Cunningham, D-Jersey City, mistakenly introduced the assemblywoman as having already thrown her hat in the ring.

Fulop campaign strategies will need tweaking as gov primary nears| Political Insider

By Agustin C. Torres | The Jersey Journal
  February 27, 2016 at 7:38 AM

The gubernatorial primaries are about 14 months away. As always, our interest lies with the Democratic Party side of things in which Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop is expected to run.

And everyone does believe there's an unannounced "Fulop for governor" campaign on the horizon. Otherwise, why get all worked up about a super PAC unless critics are concerned that someone -- for example, a local big developer -- is trying to get around election donation laws? Or why have feathers been so ruffled about the mayor trying to change the season of city elections from spring to fall?

So let him run for Governor. He's an ambitious young man, IMO we need more of them. Just like we need ambitious, out-of-the-box thinkers to run for Mayor.

Scarinci: Fulop will have the money and political support to be the next governor

In a light of the fact that a new super PAC has raised $3.2 million and will likely support Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop in his pursuit of the governor’s seat in 2017, Donald Scarinci says Fulop will have the money and political support to prevail in the race.

would fulop even win. he strikes me as overly transparent and i wonder if he has spent enuff time as mayor of jc....fulop strikes me as a booker or christie wannabe. at least with booker, one could hope that he was really interesrested in seeing newark improve...with christie and fulop i think they view their constituencies as just a stepping stone to higher office. i see fulop as more of a hillary clinton/jeb bush as opposed to an obama (pre-potus)/sanders or even trump/carson. just my two cents.

i think fulop, at a minimum, needs to win/serve another term before running for governor

Fulop's gubernatorial ambitions are now clear | Morgan

By Earl Morgan | For The Jersey Journal The Star-Ledger 
October 06, 2015 at  8:16 AM

A few things were cleared up by Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop's assertion that District 3 Freeholder Gerry Balmir has demonstrated his disloyalty by allowing his wife to take a job in the office of state Senate President Stephen Sweeney.

It establishes with certainty Fulop's gubernatorial ambitions. We know this because Sweeney is also planning to run for governor. Fulop is outraged that Balmir, to whom he all but delivered the freeholder's seat, allowed his spouse to consort with the enemy.

It exposes the lack of comity existing between Hudson County African-American elected officials. Balmir is seen by many in the Hudson County Democratic organization as a disloyal ingrate unwilling to take his place in the political pecking order.

well I do hope that he is right that the window of opportunity for a JC casino has closed, but cannot fathom that he believes that a facebook post replaces community meetings in response murders and shootings.

7 years of Booker is indeed a long time and one would expect to have seen some kind of accomplishment during that time.

By saying he's "a significant upgrade over Sharpe James" how do you measure this? Because he wasn't as corrupt (or at least caught being such) or stole millions upon millions? That's all great, but it's a very very low bar and hardly qualifies as doing a "good job". Same goes for Fulop. No dent in crime. No dent in anything meaningful. But they've both got GREAT PR spins, that's for sure.

What exactly did Booker accomplish to transform Newark in a way that made people say "yeah, that guy should be senator" aside from him being black and a democrat. (yes, I get it, this time around he had no real opponent).

He did nothing, except he had flashy PR campaigns saving animals from burning buildings and using the city as his personal leaping for his political aspirations. It's resume padding at its finest.

And, in your response, please stop going back to the broken record response of "Well, Christie....blah blah blah" because I didn't vote for him, and wouldn't if he ran for president. Answer these questions on their own merit Pebs (or anyone else).

Comment made by Donald Scarinci partner in Scarinci Hollenbeck attorneys, on Facebook: "Steve Fulop's private reception at the League of Municipalities turned into the hot ticket of the night. People were lined up at the elevators to get in to see the next Governor. It was a tastefully understated event by the pool at the top floor of the Water Club with breathtaking views of Atlantic City. If only I had my Nikon and my tripod..."

By THE REV. ALEXANDER M. SANTORA
GUEST COLUMNIST

Talk of Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop running for governor after a little more than one year in office makes me wonder what qualifies one to run for higher office. In Fulop’s case, it’s seems to be simply that he was elected mayor.

It seems to this guy that this is his only qualification, but that doesn’t actually make it so.

Quote:

I am still mystified how Fulop, socially awkward, even got elected.

Honestly, how is he “mystified?” His primary challenger was a guy that nearly went to jail on corruption. Healey went through the whole naked photo on his front steps and that followed up with an utterly absurd comment about young Hispanic girls. There’s nothing mystifying about it.

Quote:
I know he was somewhat of an iconoclastic councilman. But throwing out good ideas does not make a good city manager. Plus, he has done some 360 on abatements, pay-for-play and cozying up to state bigwigs to feather his nest. His abandonment of his former Jersey City Board of Education members is playing nice to the JCEA. We can’t trust what he does because it doesn’t seem in the best interests of the city but his own personal ambitions.

There are some bullet points here.

1. Good ideas don’t always make a good city manager. But a good city manager isn’t one without good ideas. Nobody ever says, “That guy has a lot of bad ideas, but he’s such a great city manager.”

2. He should definitely be called on the abatements issue. I don’t think it is nearly as egregious as Rev. Santora would like to contend, but it isn’t good.

3. Pay-for-play is another item that should be discussed. We’ve seen some examples of campaign donors getting city contracts. It is, sadly, expected. However, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be reviewed and, if something is wrong, prosecuted.

4. I do not know what the author is referencing with “cozying up to state bigwigs to feather his nest.” I often network with others in my field. I fail to see how this is somehow nefarious.

5. The BoE election is certainly something to review. Did he abandon them or did he not like the job they were doing? Did he quietly back the JCEA ticket to cozy up to the union or because they presented a better set of ideas? I know what the cynic says but that doesn’t necessarily mean that is exactly what happened.

6. Personal ambition and the city’s benefits are not mutually exclusive. In fact, this is the exact argument that Ayn Rand tried to make in her laughably rudimentary book, Atlas Shrugged.

Quote:
He comes across as a dilettante. He shows up – anywhere, anytime, at anything. Recall the photos you see in the newspaper. He’s getting his blood pressure checked by Dr. Oz when he visited Jersey City; going down a slide in a new children’s park; or cutting endless opening business ribbons.

I believe this is part of his job description. He should be at the opening of businesses; it helps draw attention to that business which assists in getting that business off the ground.

I am not upset about getting his blood pressure checked by Dr. Oz. We don’t know which party reached out to whom and it really doesn’t matter.

Quote:
When former Gov. Jim McGreevey hosted a conference on post-prison life at St. Peter’s University, earlier this year, Fulop was there. McGreevey was working the crowd: hugging, back slapping, glad handing and pumping them up. Fulop stayed up front: standing, sitting, texting, walking and then, well, repeat. He gave a listless talk on helping ex-prisoners that could have been delivered by a criminal justice major. He hardly connected with the audience, got a polite applause and sat down. He never once engaged a person, like McGreevey, on his own but waited for people to come to him. And then the encounter was perfunctory.

So should Fulop walk around like McGreevey, glad-handing every person he meets or should he not show up? I don’t understand. Is the Reverend mad that the guy is there or mad that he’s not shaking hands?

As for why Fulop is there… McGreevey is his employee and St. Peter’s is located in Jersey City. One doesn’t need to call up Sherlock Holmes to determine why the mayor was there.

Quote:
Fulop needs to drop this gubernatorial quest and run a city with a myriad of problems for the long haul. Just look north to Mayors Brian Stack and Richard Turner, who have served for years and have made Union City and Weehawken, respectively, successful cities. Both are as political as the next but live out their commitments.

Brian Stack is also a member of the New Jersey State Senate. He may be mayor, but he’s dipping his hand into two pools.

I don’t know how effective Mayor Turner is. His location is prime real estate yet the population has been dropping.

Quote:
We’ve seen this hubris before. Sen. Cory Booker, seemed to have one foot out the door in Newark just as he set one foot in, as mayor. And the city suffered for that ambition. Gov. Chris Christie has had his head swell, not even two years in office, as a potential presidential candidate and hasn’t stopped grasping. The state’s in one big mess during his travels around the country.

Booker was mayor for 7 years before jumping out the door. Prior to that he was a councilman for 4. He saw an opportunity and took it. I don’t see how the city of Newark “suffered” under Booker. The man was a significant upgrade over Sharpe James. Anyone that argues otherwise is simply blind. I also don’t think 7 years is that short of a time.

Christie’s head didn’t start swelling when he got elected. There are plenty of examples regarding his ego when he was a US Attorney. I’ll also say that the state hasn’t suffered by having Christie take a third of the year off (somehow Monroe hasn’t called for his firing or removal, but then again, Christie isn’t a teacher and union member). The state suffered because Christie has made some poor decisions, but that wasn’t due to ambition, it is due to poor governance.

Quote:
Last Thursday, this newspaper published an unscientific poll on whether Fulop should run for governor with 59.06 percent voting "yes," 40.84, "no." It could be that people are beginning to realize that he should vacate Jersey City so we can elect a mayor who wants to stay and govern.

Yup, an unscientific poll that you have decided should be used as a basis for building an argument of pure conjecture. There are numerous reasons that people voted a certain way and one of which could be this man’s supposition. It could also just have easily been someone clicking yes by accident.

Ultimately, the reason that Fulop shouldn’t be running for governor is that he hasn’t built up enough of a track record and history to know how effective he might be in a higher office, which is the basis of the Reverend’s article. The guy was just unable to articulate it in any lengthy way which resulted in a bunch of fluff that ultimately makes no sense.

Bravo to the author below! Someone formally made all the valid points I've made on here. Too many stupid people enamored by a great PR machine elect empty suits like Booker and Fulop to positions they haven't earned.

I agree with the Reverend’s sentiment of wanting to see Fulop complete his elected tasks, but the opinion piece was woefully poor. The writing was poor, the arguments made were poor, and it was rather contradictory.

As for Booker… The guy is where he is because he worked his way up. He was mayor of Newark for a good 7-years as opposed to Fulop’s 1. You can argue that he gets a lot of publicity, and that is true, but there is no bigger pimp of themselves in this state than our governor.

I also think that when you prop up a joke candidate to run against the guy, it’s hard to see why he lost.

That letter has nothing to do with who anyone would rather see as Mayor of Jersey City. It is saying that Fulop should drop his plans for Governor, as they seem incredibly presumptuous after a mere year in office.

And in fact the letter says they wish to see Fulop remain Jersey City Mayor for many years to come. Other than the "socially awkward" comment, which I couldn't tell you if it was true or false, most of that letter appeared to be pretty reasonable.
