Fulop was caught in a lie, so yes, they do care.


Yvonne,
You misunderstand my comment. I am saying that no-one cares about what PolitickerNJ said about Mats in 2012 when he was just Hired Help in City Hall.

Firstly, Thank You for the concise clip link that you provided. It clearly shows Fulop's true nature for all to see !

OF COURSE People should, & do care about Fulop's Lack of Transparency, his Overdeveloped Propensity to create Photo-ops that Mis-represent the status of his *Project Accomplishments*, and that He Flat Out LIES about his participation in Development Tours in attempts to displace them, shamelessly to their faces !

Here? Bill Matsikoudis who was second in command for 9 years in one of the most corrupt administrations in JC?s history is running for Mayor. During his run for Mayor he has been making lies up about things he accomplished as JC Corporation Council. One of them being the lawsuit and cleanup of the old Roosevelt Drive Inn property.(the future Bayfront property)

We all know that the Interfaith Community Organization eventually won a lawsuit they filed in 1995 way before the Healy/ Matsikoudis administration took office.

Really? Gee I thought they endorsed Mayor Fulop. Speaking of deceitful lies to the people of JC how about this whopper that I got from the JJ on one of his longtime accomplishments.

He goes around saying that he was responsible for the cleanup the Bayfront property. But any JC old-timer could tell you the real story about how a religious organization started the legal process way back in the 1990?s.

11/3/2017 JJ Bayfront: .?Wurm called Jersey City Together a "grandchild" of the Interfaith Community Organization of Jersey City, the group that sued to force Honeywell to clean up that site and another on Garfield Avenue owned by PPG.?

The Healy Clone caught in another lie?..

5/10/2017 JJ Bayfront: ?Bill Matsikoudis, who is challenging Fulop in November's mayoral race, spearheaded the effort to get the property cleaned up as corporation counsel under Fulop's predecessor.?

How low can you go taking credit away from a Church group? But then again that?s always been ?The Healy Way?. Sinner!

Get out and vote for TEAM FULOP on Tuesday November 7th, 2017 send a loud and clear message that we don?t want a Healy Clone as Mayor nor do we want any of the Clones Clones on the City Council. (it would be much worse than having the NO-bbie Brothers on the Council as we do now)

I'm sure that there are many people who hope to hurt the mayor with this tape. That's the nature of politics.

If this were Healy, Fulop would have been screaming bloody murder, as well he should have.

You're right, the mayor and I aren't best friends, largely because I believe he betrayed the cause of good government that got him elected. Early in his administration, I counseled him to live up to his promise. He chose another road. It's very sad to see his talent wasted.

The mayor has forfeited his right to another term. He wasted five million of taxpayer money on a frivolous lawsuit to postpone the reval for his political convenience. That money could have paid for all manner of city needs. It appears that he tried to throw the ambulance contract to a political supporter when it was clear that the Medical Center had one of the finest operations in the country. I could go on and on.

No one can know for sure, what a change of administration would mean. Many of us were surprised by Fulop's 180. What I do know is that he offers us more of the Hudson County self-dealing and corruption we all want to stop.

So many bad assumptions in your response as well as others, that to get to the gist of all of them, could take all day.

1st. If needs to buy vehicle for transportation which many in all wards of the city need to do they could for the same price as a used ICE vehicle puchase a used electric one. Electrics have been out since 2010 and there are plenty to be had for reasonable prices

2. The up keep of an electric is so much less than a ICE car, there are no oil changes, few fluids in which to replace, brakes may last for as much as 100,000 miles do to regenerative braking and less to go wrong on the motor an engagement to the wheels.

3. If money is the issue, home charging for electrics is so far less than a ICE vehicle, it costs on average $1.20 to charge a chevy volt to .03? a mile for a tesla S with home charging , while the average ICE car is around .20? a mile.

4. And then there is the small issue of air quality issues in urban confines. JC has an alarming rate of children with asthma and yet little has been done to remove the major source of the air pollutants in this region which in no small part is do ICE vehicles and trucks.

5. ICE vehicles are also a major factor to the degradation of our infrastructure including bridges, roads and our buildings. The pollutants including new cars let off acidic pollutants, much of the discoloration and degradation of our buildings is do to the pollutants emitted by ICE vehicles.

And then the people who say its big car companies that are pushing EVS, oh I wish they were. GM, Nissan, VW, Mercedes, BMW and others advertising budget for their EVs is a fraction of Chevy's Impala. So lets blame the major manufacturers for producing EV cars and Vans but not blame them for pushing ICE cars onto us.

I know forums are usually for the ill informed and the disgruntled but please don't take it out on EVs they just want a chance to be on the streets and have access to charging as many of your ICE driven cars that have options of gassing up.

Be nice to them they just want a chance to play with the older kids on the block.

You are reading way too much into my comment and assuming the rest, which btw happens to be incorrect.

I am fully aware of everything that you have stated Feature & Benefit wise, since I have owned a Volt for many years at my secondary residence which has a driveway & Pvt. SOLAR POWERED 12V-DC charging station on premises in our garage.

This administration has required amenities to go in every ward even if demand is higher in particular areas. That was the case with Citibike and is the case for the charging stations.

If the city didn't do that, the inevitable complaint would be "the city just cares about downtown."

And yet when the city does that, the complaint is "the residents of those wards don't care about that."


Really ? Can you enlighten us with some additional examples aside from bikes & electric car services ?

I don't see anyone complaining about even distribution of these 16 charging stations [although 16 is not evenly divisible by 6 Wards].

If your concern is purely health, the amount of chemical residue that would be in a mature fruit from a commercial start would be undetectable. Think of the mass of that tiny start compared to a mature plant and it's fruit. I also believe most of the health benefit of organic comes from no pesticides rather than the type of fertilization used. If you just want everything you touch to be organic, whatever.

I grow organically from either seeds or commercial starts, usually from Hudson Market on JFK. Are they still there? There was talk of them being sold.

Hudson Market sold their property awhile ago & were asked to remain for the 2017 season by the new owners who will be putting up yet more *Luxury Condos* in it's place.
They were giving out 20% off coupons all summer for their new place, which will be quite a drive away from JC.

Jersey City pulls political promotion of Fulop ally off city website

Jersey City pulled an item off the city website yesterday that promoted a political meet-and-greet intended to boost the chances of one of Mayor Steve Fulop's council candidates.

The event was listed on the taxpayer-funded cultural affairs calendar as a community barbecue hosted from noon to six today by Mo Kinberg (the calendar entry spelled her name "Kingsberg").

On her Facebook page, Kinberg, who with Fulop's support is seeking to unseat Ward D Councilman Michael Yun in November, promoted the event as a meet-and-greet alongside ads for her candidacy and Fulop's.

When my contractor applied for the proper Building Permit to do my Roof in Autumn of 2016 & was directed to the 14th floor Planning Dept., I simply challenged the HD/HPO process BWO of a one page Letter from my attorney.
JC Officials/Directors immediately backed off, issued the permit & work proceeded without further interruption.

I've bolded the critical clause they ignore:

?If historic windows have deteriorated to a point precluding repair, rehabilitation or restoration, based on documentation submitted by the applicant, or a field inspection by the Historic Preservation Officer, replacement windows may be approved under a Certificate of No Effect if they match the historic windows....?

This clause specifically refers ONLY to historic windows that have deteriorated. Everything following in that sub-section of the code is exclusively about deteriorated historic windows. The code is totally silent about replacing existing NON-historic windows in historic buildings. Replacing NON-historic windows with fake, ?historic looking? windows isn't ?preservation?. You can't preserve something, here a historic window, that doesn't exist.

So what is that section of JC code about? It describes what you must do when you have a deteriorated, existing historic window. You retain (preserve) as much of the original, historic window as possible. Everything of the existing historic window that can be saved must be ?preserved?. Parts that are beyond repair must be ?restored.? It means that if part of an original, historic window can't be repaired, you can't tear out the entire window. You must ?restore? the beyond repair part and keep all the rest of the window.

For example, consider an existing historic window with a sash so badly deteriorated it can't be repaired. The sash holds the windowpane and moves when you open the window. The code allows you to make a new sash (or part of it), essentially identical to the historic sash, and use that ?restored? sash to repair the existing, historic window. Only the ?beyond repair? part, the sash, is ?restored.? The rest of the window must stay and be preserved. That's ?historic preservation.? As it is custom work, it can be (is) very costly, and you should carefully consider that before you buy a house in a historic district.


When HPO and HPC demands go further than ?preservation? activities they are misapplying the code and acting outside their lawful authority. And when they leave critical clauses off sections of code they are supposed to know and correctly administer, thereby changing the meaning of the code, that is plain, willful abuse. It is damaging to property owners, it ignores the State MLUL, and it raises serious legal risks for the City with Federal Housing Law. The City should put a stop to it.


*A note about definitions of ?restoration? and ?reconstruction?:
Although similar, the words ?restoration? and ?reconstruction? have particular meanings when used in Historic Preservation Codes and Guidelines. The best definitions (clearest, most precise, easiest to understand) are found in the Secretary of the Interior's Guidelines for Historic Preservation. Updated guidelines were released earlier this year. The JC Historic Code specifies the Secretary's Guidelines as the standard the JC HPC shall follow.
See: https://www.nps.gov/tps/standards/treatment-guidelines-2017.pdf

In the JC Historic Zoning Code, the definition for ?reconstruction? (?345-6. - Definitions) is so badly expressed it doesn't make sense. It seems a typographical error was made repeating part of the wording from the definition for ?restoration.? That's a problem because when wording in a law, regulations or code is poorly expressed and not ?understandable by a person of common intelligence?, the law or regulation (or part of it) is invalid.


Thank you for clarifying these points about windows for ALL Jersey City properties contained within the municipality's designated Historic Districts.

Regarding your words of caution when considering property purchases in a Historic District [Highlighted Above]:

What advice do you have for those of us already residing on the Westside who purchased Homes prior to having this Municipal HDO Ordinance [devoid of appropriate guidelines] imposed upon us, without our permission, BWO a myriad of blatant Illegal Procedures [including but not limited to eradication of our property rights] employed by this current Administration in their unrelenting Quest for Gentrification on a grand scale?

When a Municipality simply eliminates key elements [property owner permissions] from the Federal & State Historic Preservation program guidelines that they then defer to, [gutting the State MLUL/ Federal Law & simply ignoring the mandate of an updated MasterPlan] they create an untenable situation of the Perfect Storm for AMPLIFIED Abuses!

Should Jersey City Taxpayers be bled out completely to shoulder additional Multi-Million$ costs associated with the resultant litany of Budget-Busting Lawsuits coming down the pike ???
[as the Direct consequence of This Mayor's Bad decisions plus his Administration's sloppy Work-Product and Improper Handling of their Fiduciary/Legislative responsibilities.]

1. The city is NOT driving up and down the streets looking for people doing work on their homes. They aren't checking for permits.

2. This individual was turned in by his neighbors. I don't know which neighbors, but I know that several neighbors called the city to complain about the type of work this person was doing.

3. The individual explicitly stated that the entire purpose for the vinyl siding was so that he could rent the house out and move to Portugal.

4. The individual's permits did not state what the material of the new siding was which is why the permit passed.

5. The city's website EXPLICITLY states that vinyl siding is NOT permitted. It is possible that another material that isn't wood could be but vinyl is definitely a no-no.

Lastly, having listened to Fernandes speak about this, my take-away was that he's a guy that had no interest in restoration. He purchased a home and was looking for a cheap fix. He's also very dishonest in his explanation on the series of events and he's simply looking for a pay day from the city.

He could have complied with the city's rules and regulations for the area rather quickly and for a lot less money than the lawsuit along with the wear and tear on the building along with the wasted money on the vinyl siding he purchased. Instead of that, he played "victim" and got lawsuit happy.

I have zero pity for the man.


People are Overlooking these things BECAUSE Your statements are WRONG, UNTRUE &/or simply stated : UR Ill-Informed POV!!

All this talk of lawsuits made me think of the harassment suit Dan Wrieden, the City Historic Preservation Officer (HPO), bought against the City. He claimed somethings about his boss harassing him. I wonder what the City's defense was/is? Maybe it's all settled by this point?

In my experience, observing things over the years, Dan has abused the historic preservation code for a long, long time. If I were his boss, I would have said some choice words to him out of frustration at what he, and the HPC, have done....

Anyone know anything about the status of that suit? I haven't seen anything reported since that initial filing.

The ABUSES at the hand of HPO Wrieden & now HPO Blazak are NeverEnding.
I have personally witnessed Wrieden Dumpster Diving on Jewett Ave. & caught Blazak *informing* constituents about their HPS [Historic Preservation Specialist] hire, when he had Advertised for & RETAINED a Part Time minimum wage Intern short term, who was brought to tears when presenting long awaited HD GuideLines last September !
[BTW> Wreiden was the HPO that I was referring to in my previous communication]

Regarding your inquiry about Wrieden's suit, I was told by a close Cruz family friend awhile ago that claims against Cruz [individually]were dropped, but no mention about claims against JC.
