More conflicting municipal government blaming game in today's Jersey Journal -

City's residents are sitting ducks


Council prez easy on city, tough on federal agency

Clearly this is beyond the abilities of our Mayor, his administration and Council, evidenced by the Council President defensively appointing a committee of the only Council members that make an effort to work (Fulop, Richardson and Sottolano) .

Another column in the Jersey City Reporter, describes why we get such poor political candidates and the resulting government -

Poltical Insider - Stack's turn

"This has almost nothing to do with the general voting public, but the behind the scenes maneuvering that narrows the field of candidates even before the public gets to push the button in the ballot box."

"Knowing political people will tell you this is the way the system works and can point to a political trail of tears that goes back as far as anybody can remember, as the power elite in the Democratic Party decides who is worthy to keep his or her seat, not based on merit of accomplishments in office, but on how well he or she can get out the vote. "

"This is political life, a shark eat shark existence that somehow gives shape to a government that is supposed to look out for the welfare of the people."

The city's failings are not just laughable but serious and reaches every aspect of government responsibility.
