Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Wednesday, June 23rd will be the last Council session in the evening. Meetings in the summer will be at 11 am.

This will be the last chance until the fall to make your message heard. Let's not wait until another tax hike is proposed to get motivated.

Spread the word.

Hudson County Enterprise PROTEST City Hall May 12th
#2
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


This flier was sent to me this evening.

70 developmentally challenged residents have lost their jobs.

They need your support.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For info contact HCE: 201-432-5959

May 9, 2010

Hudson Community Enterprises Calls On Residents To Protest Jersey City?s Barriers To Employment for the Developmentally Disabled.

Sign a petition, email Jersey City?s elected officials, protest at the next City Council Meeting, Wednesday, May 12th.

Since 1957, Hudson Community Enterprises (HCE) has provided disabled individuals with opportunities to enter the workplace. Based in Jersey City, this local non-profit has placed over 3,500 community residents into employment. HCE‟s mission is simple: ?Give Individuals with
Disabilities and other barriers to employment a Chance to Succeed. Improve the Community One Person at a Time.‟

Recent cancellation of the Jersey City Incinerator Authority?s Litter Patrol Program, which employed seventy developmentally challenged HCE members, has raised new barriers.

On April 27th, 2009, seventy developmentally challenged residents, who participate in the HCE vocational rehabilitation program, suffered a major blow. We were given two days notice that the Jersey City Incinerator Authority was cancelling a twenty year contract for Litter Patrol services.

Jersey City gave the most debilitating news to the neediest in our community. You‟re fired, two days from now. It must be said that persons with disabilities suffer daily. Our program participants are met with barriers to employment and basic communal acceptance every single day of their lives.

On Wednesday, May 12, 2010, the recently unemployed members of the HCE Litter Patrol Program will protest this tragic decision outside City Hall, 280 Grove Street, JC, NJ at 5:00pm. Following the protest, we will attend the City Council Meeting at 6:00pm in Council Chambers, City Hall to speak against this decision.

We are asking Residents and Members of the Jersey City Community to join us to protest this decision.

Call the City Clerk?s Office at 201-547-5150 to put your name on the speakers list.

Hudson Community Enterprises and its supporters work so hard to break down barriers and integrate these individuals into the workplace to gain acceptance, self-reliance and self sufficiency.

Jersey City‟s unfortunate news put up a new barrier. These individuals had an opportunity to enter the workforce and contribute to their community; this tragedy exposes each of them to recidivism, a chronic tendency toward the repetition of criminal or anti-social behavior. It is a health concern, it will require intervention, and will debilitate members of our community.

Before voting for the budget, Heights Councilman Bill Gaughan said it was the "toughest year" to make a budget in his seventeen years on the council.



It was the toughest year because their feet were put to the fire.

Had we not gone down there, we wouldn't even have gotten this token reduction.

Lopez and Donnelly voted "No" because they were protected, the Council knew they had the votes they needed to pass the budget.

$572 vs the $800 per $100,000 assessed value originally proposed.

That, on top of an 11% increase last year.

It's too much, they have to be rolled back.

The City should have them clean it up or go after the money it's going to cost to do it. They appeared in my neighborhood on Kennedy, seemingly overnight. City doesn't have any funds to squander.

Yes, we have been reaching out to all communities.

PROTEST CITY HALL April 21st

There will be a special meeting by the City Council on Wednesday, April 21st to vote on the revised budget, nine months in to the fiscal year.

We need to make it clear to the Council that we are not happy with the tax increase of up to 25% while rubbing it in our faces by continuing to drive City cars on our dime.

We will demand that work begin immediately on the 2010-11 FY to produce a balanced budget that is within our means and on time.

There will be a Rally at 5pm for those who can make it. Members of the recall committees will be there to meet with residents.

Sign up to speak,
Bring your signs,
Bring your pots and pans,
Bring your tar and feathers!

Turn up the heat

If anyone is interested in going to the public hearing and needs a ride, Councilman Fulop and Bill O'Dea have rented a bus.

It leaves at 4pm.

Jersey City politicians charter bus to United Water rate hike hearing By Melissa Hayes/The Jersey Journal

Jersey City Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop and Hudson County Freeholder Bill O'Dea are chartering a bus to tomorrow's hearing on United Water's proposed 25 percent rate hike.Hudson County Freeholder Bill O?Dea and Jersey City Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop are chartering a bus to a public hearing on United Water?s proposed rate hike tomorrow.

United Water has requested to increase its rates by over 25 percent.

The hearings is being held in the Bergen County Freeholder Room at One Bergen County Plaza in Hackensack tomorrow night.

"While in our capacities as councilman and freeholder, we have limited ability to stop the increase. Regardless, it is absolutely crucial that we fight United Water and make our voices heard," Fulop said in a statement. ?This is nothing more than another backdoor tax on residents that they can't afford."

O?Dea, a Jersey City resident added, ?The impact on increased taxes, including NJ Transit, PSE&G, and increased water and sewer bills is unsustainable. With a tough job market, tough economy, and increasing cost of living, we must do everything we can to raise our voices against this additional increase."

The bus will leave City Hall, 280 Grove St. in Jersey City, at 4 p.m.

To those of you who couldn\'t make it, don\'t worry. The Council wasted no time sticking it to us again.

Council voted against introducing ordinances to eliminate health benefits for JCIA and MUA board members. Win for the administration and its cronies. Loss for us.

The \"Fulop muzzle\" ordinance, up for second-read tonight, passed. Win for the administration and its cronies. Loss for us, and for our voice in Council.

Surprisingly the ordinance on JC1TV passed first-read this time! Possible win for us!


A young man from Ward A stood up to comment on rising teen violence, and proposed a teen mentoring/coaching program. He asked why Councilman Sottolano had not responded to his repeated efforts to talk to him about the program. Sottolano\'s only response was, \"I\'ve been in youth ministry for 40 years. When you get that much experience talk to me.\" He and Council President Brennan laughed in the face of this man who was desperately trying to get someone to do something about violence in his neighborhood. And these guys laugh him off the podium. It\'s disgusting. The man\'s plea fell on deaf ears. The city had coaches working part-time for minimum wage. They were fired to save the city some cash. The city didn\'t get rid of the car we bought and maintain for Councilman Vega. The city didn\'t get rid of health benefits for JCIA and MUA board members (Healy appointees) who serve one hour a month. The city fired soccer coaches who earn minimum wage part-time and keep the kids out of the streets. Where are the priorities and allegiances? With the people or with friends of the mayor?




I was there.

We all know what needs to be done.

The recall committees are gearing up and getting ready for the May announcement (in accordance with state rules of recall).

Recall teams have been formed for Wards C & A, (Lopez and Sottolano).

Ward B (Donnelly) - will run a candidate against him for the November election.

Enough laughing in the faces of people.

Information will be coming out shortly.

If you are interested on working on the recall or another aspect of this effort, please pm me.

I'm just reading his speech now.

You can read it here;

I did see this in the text. I believe it is currently capped at 3.5%.

At its heart is proposition 2 ? -- a constitutional amendment to cap the growth of property taxes at no more than 2 ?% per year.

I think it was a good night.

According to the JC Independent, there were about 200 people there, still more residents attending than usual.

http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/ ... ons-move-denied-and-more/

People came and left, some had signs, others stayed to the bitter end and many got up to speak. The message was clear.

The man in the white shirt was good, as was everyone that got up to speak. The more people who do that, the better.

Seeing Deputy Mayor Tayari sleeping in the background at the end of the video is reflective of the attitude of the City Council and what they think of the tax payers of this town.

Starting with Mayor Healy, drunk and naked, outdoors on his steps and that Bradley beach incident.

Deputy Mayor Tayari, sleeping at meetings and charged with theft of a rental car

Deptuy Mayor Beldini, stripper charged with 2 counts accepting bribes

City Council: Vega, indicted; Gaughan and Flood giving jobs to family members; Lopez, ran as a resident of Florida.

Let us not forget past Councilman Lipski pissing on a nightclub crowd. And from there on down the food chain. It would go on and on.


Don't forget to add former Deputy Mayor Ador Equipado, who was charging money for phone services while he was marrying people.

Jersey City Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari charged with theft
July 03, 2008

Jersey City Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari was arrested by Port Authority police yesterday, who pulled him over in a rental car that had been reported stolen, reports said.

Tayari was charged with theft under his given name, Randy Brown, officials said today.

He was arrested in Jersey City and charged with theft by failure to make proper disposition of property received, based on allegations by a car rental business at Newark Liberty International Airport, said Jennifer Frieberg, a spokeswoman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Tayari was arrested at 9:30 a.m., fingerprinted and booked by Port Authority police and later released, said Frieberg, adding that the charges against him are being handled by the Essex County Prosecutor's Office.

The vehicle Tayari was in when he was arrested was returned to the airport rental service, Frieberg said.

The charge apparently stems from his failure to return a rental vehicle, officials said. It's not clear how long he had the car or what the circumstances were but the Essex County Prosecutor's Office is expected to provide additional information on the charges later today.

Tayari, who is in his late 50's, has been a Jersey City employee for the past 12 years and has been president of the Jersey City branch of the NAACP at least as long.

He got his start in city government in the administration of Mayor Bret Schundler and has also served as president of the Board of Education and interim Municipal Court director.

During the administration of Jersey City Mayor Glenn D. Cunningham, he was an assistant business administrator and an adviser to the mayor.

As of October 2007, his city salary was $104,871, officials said.

The 90K full time salary proposal is a distraction to throw us off from the real issue.

The meetings in the next week with the different departments is a dog and pony show. They want to say look at us, we listened. They should have had the department meetings months ago, that's if they were serious.

We need action.

Stay focused.
