My personal observation was the Solomon campaign worked harder. I received twice as many visits from Solomon canvassers than Symes.

Anonymous posts or unsourced assertions are not the basis for saying that Symes "seems" connected to the Mayor. She is not except in the sense that she can work more cooperatively rather than act as a "White Knight" who knows better than everyone else.


Between Symes and Solomon it is obvious who the mayor would prefer to be on the council. But the mayor knows that it would be unseemly to endorse the former General Counsel for a major real estate investment firm.

Let me make this clear -
General Counsel of real estate investment firm -> Jersey City Council – is inappropriate and egregious from an ethical standpoint.

There are good reasons to vote for either candidate, but completely ignoring the ethical dilemma is troubling. Ms. Symes may do an excellent job on the council – time will tell. But either way, this will set a dangerous precedent.


Completely ignoring? She resigned from her position and is going without a job to avoid conflicts of interest.

If something pertaining to Dixon came before council she should recuse herself. But Dixon generally does not have matters that go before the council. It is not a developer and has not applied for tax abatements or sought approval of redevelopment plans. Most of what Dixon has to do with government is getting permits, approvals to do work in historic districts, and the like. That does not go before council.


Completely ignoring that at Dixon she employed two people from her old job with Senator Gillibrand.

Under Symes, Dixon successfully reduced their property tax burden leaving regular homeowners to pick up the tab.

Amen and hallelujah to that! We have been wandering around Journal Square for close to 40 years waiting for a prophet to show us the way. Hopefully she will help turn this desert land in Journal Square into the (4 times) Promised Land.

PS – I was just about to pass my seedling off to my younger neighbor for planting up the Square in case I never got to see the (4 times) Promised Land. It looks like I finally will see it.

Solomon is the epitome of white privilege. During a planning board meeting discussing the Journal Square tower, he ranted about Kushner. However, he failed to notice all of the journal square locals in a heavy minority area are in favor of the project because among other things they are sick of this lot being vacant for 40 plus years. This was a pure example of "i know better than you. i'm going to be your "white knight" and dismissing the people who actually live there.


From reading the posts here saying how Team Solomon is trying to make something out of Rebecca Symes past employment and especially the above post Solomon comes across as an anti-development kind of guy. Speaking for the majority of people in the “other city” (according to JJ’s Earl Morgan) please vote for Symes today. With all of the new development opportunities coming to ALL wards (Bayfront, Westside, JSquare) we don’t need another anti-development vote on the City Council. We already have Rich “NO vote’ Boggiano to try and c-block* us.

The Journal Square locals mentioned in the above post are indeed overjoyed that new development is finally happening Up The Square. They had the “rebirth” rug pulled out from under them many a time. They have been waiting decades to either cash out or enjoy some of those “yuppie” amenities like good restaurants/bars, grocery stores, etc. (the things they used to have 40+ years ago) Whenever I see my older neighbors it is a “Hi how are you doing did you hear if any new projects got approved?” Don’t let that joy stop now. (we JC old-timers don’t have much time left to enjoy those “yuppie” amenities)

*c-block = construction block ..lol

The endorsement of  Rebecca Symes by Aaron Morrill the Civic JC Co-Founder is profound. Aaron is a very vocal critic  of the current administration. To paraphrase Aaron" Every voter should spend ten minutes talking to Rebecca and they will find

that she is not the caricuture that her opponents have tried to portray her as"

This, all the way. Symes just seems too aligned with Fulop's contacts and resources to be as independent as I'd like. I don't find the criticism of Solomon's background to be meaningful. We've seen terrific "dilettante" politicians like the Roosevelts many times in this country.

Josh - there was no ELEC expenditure for Bertoli on Fulop's ELECs (nor was there one for me, for that matter.) Are you going to tell me he wasn't involved in that campaign either?

To be honest, I don't care that much who wins. I'll vote for Solomon because I think he is a better check on the administration's lesser impulses, but both Solomon and Symes give me the impression that whomever wins will be running for mayor come Wednesday.

"It's well known" is the statement when one does not actually have evidence.

Bertoli has no role with the campaign.

His relationship with Alex Habib is the same as was his relationship with you. You both helped run that campaign and worked with him.

Alex, like you, is not in the inner circle of Fulop anymore (and neither is Bertoli). But unlike some of Fulop's former allies (like the school board mafia) he didn't outright declare war on him just because he was no longer favored. So he's still able to have a conversation with Bertoli to talk about field ops and pick his brain for strategy.

You wont see any expenditure for Bertoli or anyone else on the ELEC reports, because there is none.

I expect such innuendos to be spread by people like the school board mafia who demonstrated no scruples whatsoever when attacking the other side. I expect better, but am not surprised, when Augie Torres says stuff to stir the pot even though it's not backed by anything solid. I definitely expect better, and am surprised, when you start making such accusations.
