Hmmm, sounds like Steve Fulop.

BTW, it's spelled NADER genius.

Could it be that her BoE position is an unpaid while the Council draws a salary? Hmmm. Either way, lots and lots of us DT find it pretty interesting.


Well excuse me .. I should have known you "DT" Machiavellis had it all scoped out.

Yep, working unpaid for 15 years at the BOE as a stepping stone to a paid political job. You guys sure are smart.

Oh yes, they were aghast. That's why Waterman and Lester endorsed her.

Diogenes,
You are pressing on behalf on the Fulop team because your whole team and your less than qualified candidates are threatened by Ms. Gangadin.


Not really. Ms. Gangadin has little chance of winning. And the Fulop candidates are eminently qualified,

This support for Ms. Gangadin is very curious to me. In reviewing her background she doesn't seem to possess any special qualifications for the job. Working in the financial industry means nothing. It's a whole different world in the public sector.

Mr. Levin and his group seem intent on pushing her. Does this indicate a rift between the Fulop and Levin camps? It certainly seems clear that Mr. Fulop is a winner and Mr. Levin is not.

Now look, we all know Vidya won't win - she doesn't have the big endorsements that she needs. However, she's chosen to position herself against Marvin. That means she'll take votes from Marvin. If she takes votes from Marvin, then Frances will slide in for the 3rd spot. Sue-Carol-Frances (in that order) If you insist on voting for Vidya who won't win, you should give her your Sue vote (who will win no matter what) Do you really want to be responsible for Frances getting re-elected?


It's very simple. Vote for Sue, Carol and Marvin. Send a message to Healy and Epps that their days are numbered.

Willie Flood absent from Council meeting again

Willie Flood has missed multiple Council caucuses and meetings recently. She is rumored to have a chronic debilitating disease which keeps her from serving the people.

Isn't it time that her condition be acknowledged and that a new Councilperson At Large be chosen ? Or are we to have another Mariano Vega situation where we have an occupied seat with no person actually serving in it ?

Jersey City announces plans to rehire 30 'Second Chancers'
#10
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


By Brett Wilshe/The Jersey Journal

Mayor Jerramiah Healy and state Sen. Sandra B. Cunningham announced today that the Jersey City Incinerator Authority plans to rehire 30 Second Chance employees thanks to a $310,000 New Jersey Community Service Block Grant.

The Second Chance program hires individuals with non-violent criminal records.

In September, 42 Second-Chance employees in the city were laid off when state funding for the city's Urban Enterprise Zone was cut.

JCIA CEO Oren K. Dabney said those laid-off employees would have first preference to be rehired.

"I've seen peoples lives changed through the Second Chance program," Dabney said. "Some of our best full-time employees came from it.

Healy thanked Senator Cunningham for securing the state grant, saying in a press release that it would provide both jobs and valuable services to the city.

"When I saw the opportunity to secure funds for this program in Jersey City I did not hesitate," Cunningham said in a statement. "I am proud to say that Jersey City will once again have an active Second Chance program."

Crews are expected to work weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., performing various chores such as picking up litter and shoveling snow, Dabney said.

Second Chance was started in 2001 by Cunningham's late husband, Glenn D. Cunningham, when he was Jersey City mayor.

The 24 furloughs that have been going on since last December for all City workers (except for police, fire, and the autonomous agencies) equal a 10.5% pay cut for each worker.


Thank you Robin for pointing that out. Also, in addition to the furloughs/paycuts, City management staff haven't had any increases in over 3 years.

Re: Councilwoman Flood's "Most Wonderful Son" - Arrested Again

Aside from the wonderful Flood son, Willie Flood should step down from the City Council for being a do-nothing councilperson. She is often absent from caucus and Council meetings and has been seen nodding off from time to time. She does nothing and knows nothing other than being a rubber stamp for Team Healy and picking up her County paycheck.

Epps has done a horrible job and has surrounded himself with sycophants who kiss his behind at every opportunity. The one good thing to come out of Christie The Hutts move is that Epps may not get the contract he wants.

Agreed. One thing they could eliminate is these retired cops who are hired back as civilians and now double dip. Nice pensions plus a salary.

The Police Fiscal dept is all civilian, including the head of the dept.


The records are kept in the districts. When the Schundler administration demanded the records the cops refused to turn them over.

Jersey City business administrator retains job in Orange

Jersey City business administrator retains job in Orange
Published: Monday, August 23, 2010, 5:29 PM Updated: Monday, August 23, 2010, 5:37 PM
Melissa Hayes/The Jersey Journal

Jersey City?s business administrator is juggling three jobs in four municipalities.
When the city hired John ?Jack? Kelly in May, he disclosed that he would continue working his part-time job as joint municipal tax assessor of Essex Fells and Caldwell Borough at night and on weekends. But Kelly didn?t say anything about keeping his position as finance director of the City of Orange Township.

Kelly has continued to work in Orange, according to a letter Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop sent to Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy today.

Kelly, who took a personal day today, could not be reached for comment.

In his letter, Fulop calls on Healy to remove Kelly. But Healy released a statement supporting the business administrator.

?I need not remind anyone of the difficult financial situation the city is currently experiencing and the role of business administrator for Jersey City is not a part time job,? Fulop wrote.

?While disturbing that your office was willing to accept him remaining in his tax assessor capacity within two other towns elsewhere, the fact that he is still part of the administration in Orange and being compensated is reprehensible and inappropriate,? Fulop continued.

Healy responded to Fulop?s letter with a statement calling Kelly?s position in Orange ?temporary.?

?In the short time Jack Kelly has been here he has proven to be an asset to our city,? Healy said. ?Mr. Kelly has displayed a wealth and depth of knowledge in city government, municipal contracts, and all other fiscal matters.

"Considering the fiscal crisis that this city and all others around the nation are in, it is a privilege to have him here," Healy added. "The position in Orange is part-time and temporary in nature and consists of transitioning a new CFO there as needed.?

Fulop called it ?disturbing? that Kelly could work three jobs in four municipalities while pushing to furlough and layoff Jersey City employees to close a budget deficit.

?Anything less than removing him from his role in Jersey City is not acceptable and we should be cutting ties early when issues of public trust exist,? Fulop wrote. ?As an organization we should let him pursue the jobs and roles that he wishes to hold onto in his three other capacities.?

WTF ?! Fire this bozo !!!!
