Jerry was nowhere to be found after the storm - just when the city and homeowners needed some semblance of leadership the most.

I can't think why Healy would want to remind people of his performance during Sandy, except the chance to say "ObamaObamaObama."

I also don't know why Fulop hasn't made a bigger deal of Sandy. Healy turned in a performance reminiscent of George W. Bush at Katrina, while Fulop's people shined.

Here for Sandy announcement, Healy calls Connors critique a 'preposterous utterance'

HIGHLANDS ? There?s no way to escape the Jersey City mayor?s race ? even in Monmouth County.

?We?re very grateful for the governor?s advocacy for our state,? said Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy, present to hear the details of Christie?s announcement of New Jersey?s receipt of $1.83 billion in Sandy recovery aid.

Backed by President Barack Obama, Healy said the President called him personally to check in when Sandy upended the city.

Healy?s challenger, Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop, and his candidate for council in the Heights, Assemblyman Sean Connors (D-33), criticized the mayor?s Hurricane Sandy performance.

Connors was particularly harsh, announcing what he saw as Healy?s feeble-footed effort as the main reason for his abandonment of the mayor?s cause.

?It was a preposterous utterance,? Healy said of Connor?s critique. ?It was a wholly manufactured excuse? for Connors to justify leaving the Healy political circuit, the mayor said.

(As if you needed an excuse. How about the convictions of his inner circle? How about the embarrassing Deputy Mayors he keeps appointing? Or the tax raises? Or the abatement giveaways? Or about the embrace of failure from Charles Epps? Or the raises given to cronies while laying off real workers? Or the conviction for drunken interfering with police officers doing their job?)
