Re: Jersey City election 2013: where the race stands

I think it's great to see a community leader such as Nidia Lopez join Fulop's (another great community leader) ticket.

The fact that they are pledging to stick to term limits proves that this group is all about changing the status quo. Bravo on both the pledge and selection of Nidia Lopez.

Det Connors has been far more involved with the community. Little Leagues, PTAs, Neighborhood Association. The CASID is a waste of business's money - in fact if you speak any business owner on Central Ave they tell you it's not worth the money AND you have no choice but to join.

Stop n Shop was needed. Mr Yun was thinking about his pockets, nothing else.

Scary looking guy. Why is the DPW director the only one getting in trouble though? Someone from the campaigns that they worked on must have known. Shouldn't the campaign at least get fined?

Hello, as a Ward D resident for the past 9 years - I have seen Mr. Connors getting involved in PTAs, Little Leagues, every Neighborhood association, block/park clean ups and has even offer good dialogue in terms of keeping Heights safer with Police-on-the-beat on certain areas. He stopped crime on my block during an off-duty jog. Point being is that Connors may have been with the machine, but unlike the current Ward D councilman - he cares for the heights. He was born and raised here, and plans on seeing Ward D excel. Regardless of his associations, I will be voting for Sean Connors for councilman.

Edit: I'd like to add that he is very responsive from his Assembly office.

I was just by Ege Avenue and Kennedy Blvd. It is very dim and the block by Morton Place is just completely dark. The City really needs to invest into street lighting somehow.

Anywhere from Congress to Charles, maybe sometimes Bowers, is a nice area. Especially from Central to Kennedy Blvd.

Nightlife not good in this area? That may actually be a good thing. lol However, there a local pub that's very friendly, and has tons of old timers there called New Moon on Manhatten Ave, I hear it's pretty chill there.

Also, not sure how much you know about the Heights, but avoid Ringside on Tonelle Ave, at all costs!

They go where no NJT go, and did I mention at cheap price which is very covineant to me during these "harsh economic" times."

Screw the NJT and their stupid zone lines charging me almost $3 to get anywhere. They drive just as bad as the jitney drivers. NJT doesnt even pull into bus stops sometimes, alot less then a jitney does, they cause just as much traffic.

Down with NJT Buses! Long live Jitney & privatized transportation!

I like this idea better:

Steven Fulop for Mayor

Daniel Levin for At-Large

Andrew Hubsch for Downtown Council

Although i think Levin is great and I supported him in his mayoral bid, the fact is that Fulop would make the better mayor because of experience.

Doug Salters is a very active member of the Ward B community. He is the local Ward B Republican Leader, was aide to former Councilman McLaughlin, and was very active during Fulop's referendum movements. I saw him at least three to four times a week collecting signatures at Grove point.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that Councilman McLaughlin was very "absent" during his term but I saw Doug Salters in all the events, funerals, and parades representing him.

Found this article this morning about Lou Manzo's closing statement during the debate yesterday:
http://jerseychronicles.blogspot.com/ ... will-not-embrass-you.html

Quote: "... during a closing statement, Lou Manzo sent out a proverbial smack to the face of current mayor, Jeremiah Healy. In the last sentence of his closing statement Lou Manzo finished the debate by stating, "I promise the people of Jersey City, I will NOT embarrass you!"


I agree with Manzo. I'm tired of people laughing at our administration.

That's horrible.

Tips for people, if you feel like a certain group or person has been following and you think you might be getting jumped, just call someone on your cellphone. I'm sure if you explain to them why your calling at 1:25 AM they should understand. Chances are the group will go elsewhere instead of atking you.

Regardless, it doesn't justify what was done to this guy. Purely horrible.

Re: Schundler drops mayoral bid

NEWGUY:

When fund raising for his campaign Councilman Fulop never stated that it was a run for Mayor. In fact, all checks were made out to Fulop 2009, and was almost stated at every event that the money went towards what ever he decided to do with his career in 2009.

Therefore, it wouldn't make sense for Fulop to return the funds, being that they were donated for him to either re-run for his seat or seek higher office.

As for Schundler he stated the money was for his mayoral bid, that's where the difference comes in.

Yes, if it takes replacing the whole JCHA Board of Commissioners then do so. It's not difficult at all.
I've been by the MG projects, and you can just tell no one gives a dam about the place.

Out with Maio, and replace the whole board if must. Not only for MG Projects but for others too.

I cant believe you just said tearing down those projects will cut half the murder rate. What world do you live in?

Tearing down those projects will leave people who can't afford housing practically homeless. Solving the crime on Montgomery doesn't start with tearing it down, it begins with someone giving a damn about the lack of security in that place.

You speak as if everyone in there is vermin and the place MUST or SHOULD go down. Montgomery needs someone to stand up for them, BRAVO STEVEN for doing so.

Maio is doing her own thing over the authority of her own Commissioners, and you guys state she's a great "public servant"?

Tell me does a Great Public Servant, serve their public by telling em "Move out, we're making condos"

Again put a JCHA Director who cares. Out with Maio and her greedy ambitions.

No way if we give the power of appointment to the Mayor we're going to have Bill Gaughan or something on the Board of Ed. PASS I'll stick with an elected school board.

Mayor Appointed School Boards don't work. IE: Bayonne, I can imagine who/what our drunktard will appoint.

However, I'm not say they never work. IE: Mayor Stack in Union City does have a good appointed board. Just saying that I don't want my kid's education in the hands of Healy's drones.

Re: Jersey City Landlords must pay to kill bedbugs -- Ordinance sponsored by Fulop passes last night
#29
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Bedbugs seems to be a big problem up in the heights. Luckily it hasn't reached me (yet? :( ) . However, many people just need a monthly visit from a good exterminator like Orkin, who automatically comes back every month til the job is done. Some landlords are too cheap and pay a crappy exterminator who doesn't do the job right then sticks it to the renters, "its your furniture, throw it out"

No! The most furniture that must be thrown out is a box spring or the carpet, and thats scientific. Overall, I believe if Orkin cost around $1200, then the land lord pays up to $800, the rest should be provided by the tenant.

So the ordinance should just be spilit that a landlord pays a percentage and the tenant pay another. i also disagree with it being 4units or more, most problems with bedbugs happens in a 2-3 family home.
