The 1% doesn't do too well with such a pittance in salary....

It would certainly be a nice change in lifestyle for someone who should be earning in the $200k range (in a down year) as a corporate inhouse counsel for a real estate firm.

Has anyone ever seen a Dixon rental downtown for $2000 per month? I've yet to see such a great deal.

If Solomon pays $4400 per year for his property, at least he is a property owner in the city and pays his way just like everyone else.

Symes is Dixon...Dixon is Symes. Simple as that.

Grillo keeps looking better and better between the other three. There don't appear to be any questions about where he lives and what his professional background is all about.

it would appear that 07302 is shilling for someone for a reason.

The ran in Ward E apparently is the only one that has incurred such rampant crap from a few again shills

shill
In conspiracy terms: A Shill is a person who is pretending to agree with a conspiracy and intentionally circulates false information or acts totally insane in an effort to discredit said conspiracy. Shills are often thought to be hired by the government but don't necessarily have to be.

The sweetheart deal on the duplex is a well-known secret as is the quid pro quo between the Dixon money to Steve and her appointment to the library board. But, it is not the Dixon money that is driving this election or her candidacy. There are larger developers that want to control (and least an ally) on council, etc. She is ready, willing, and able.

Rebecca Symes purchased a waterfront condo in Hoboken when she moved to NJ in 2013 and began working for Dixon Advisory.

In August of 2015 she rented a two bedroom Dixon owned duplex with garden, 3 blocks from Grove Street, for a sweetheart rent of $2000 pcm.

http://clients3.weblink.com.au/pdf/URF/01680858.pdf

It is hard to say when she actually moved from Hoboken because she kept and still owns that apartment and was filing campaign contributions for Hillary Clinton using her Hoboken address as late as July 2016.

http://docquery.fec.gov/cgi-bin/fecimg/?201708319071273670

What is clear is that Rebecca Symes declared her Ward E candidacy 1 year and 10 months after her earliest possible claim to residency in Jersey City.

August 2015 was a busy month for Rebecca as moving to Jersey City coincided with her being appointed by Mayor Fulop to the Jersey City Library board.

August 2015 also saw Dixon Advisory give $200,000 to Fulop's Coalition for Progress

https://www.opensecrets.org/outsidespe ... 0582841&type=A&cycle=2016

Within three months of moving to Jersey City Symes was appointed secretary and board member of the Harsimus Cove Association.
This came a few months after the association had begun to receive sponsorship money from Dixon.

http://www.harsimuscove.org/event/hca-general-meeting/2015/04/13

A snapshot of HCA sponsors from the month she was appointed show 16 local businesses.

https://web.archive.org/web/2015111523 ... harsimuscove.org/sponsors

Under Symes tenure the number of sponsors reduced to Dixon Advisory and 3 others, as it remains to this day.

http://www.harsimuscove.org/sponsors

Nothing but facts.

However well meaning she may be it is difficult to view Symes presence in Jersey City as anything but a cynical and calculated play for power, one backed financially by her employers and the interests of real estate.

Sounds like an outright lie from James Solomon's campaign. Rebecca never owned a home in Hoboken. A simple property search would reveal that.

Did She live there? But she paid rent out of her own pocket. Something that spoiled smug brat Solomon wouldn't know anything about.

I wonder how much money his mommy and daddy are going to kick in for the run-off?

 Btw No record that Rebecca Symes owned / owns a waterfront condo in Hoboken. Perhaps in Hoboken,Belgium a picturesque town near Brussels.

Can u explain why James Solomon fails to mention that he greatly benefits from the city no longer reassessing properties after renovations. James is one of over 400 property owners

who benefitted from the city policy. James pays  approximetly $4400  a year for a property that was purchased for $783k in 2015.

Has Rebecca Symas addressed her relationship with Dixon Leasing during debates or other forums?
