Re: Healy Volunteers removing signs from doors

Candidates' signs get vandalized

by Amy Sara Clark/The Jersey Journal
Tuesday May 12, 2009, 10:00 AM

People who want to see Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy defeated in today's election have ripped down or vandalized about 2,000 of his campaign signs, a Healy campaign official said yesterday.

Vandalized Jerramiah Healy signs on Kennedy Boulevard near State Highway 139 in Jersey City.

Some of the signs have been cut in half and others had stickers of mugs placed over the "H" in Healy, said deputy campaign manager Craig Guy.

"It's unfortunate that our opponents feel this is the way to win an election. We are confident, however, that the voters will review Mayor Healy's accomplishments and those of his running mates and make an educated decision based on the issues, not vandalism," Guy said.

Healy's opponents - Philip G. Webb, Harvey Smith, Dan Levin and Louis Manzo - said their signs are being vandalized as well.

"They usually slice them right down the middle," said Manzo, who estimated that 100 of his signs have been vandalized or taken down.

Webb said that of roughly 40 signs put up by his campaign, only 10 are still in place. Levin and Smith said they didn't have numbers, but have seen many of their signs disappear.

All the campaigns deny vandalizing or removing opponents' signs.

Re: Election Gets Nasty: Embankment's Developer, Steve Hyman Launches $150G "Anyone-but-Healy" Campa

Full Disclosure: As much as I would love to take credit for this, it was found on JCI website posted by enoch_needles. BRILLIANT! Two thumbs up and I have no support to any full ticket.
I'm voting for 2 people on the Healy ticket, 1 from the Smith ticket, 1 from the Manzo ticket and 1 from the Levin ticket and voting for the Hyman is a jerk from the reality ticket.

Re: Double dipping on JC Council

Don?t forget the others who are also running for council like

There was a story about him on and now all the news stories about his firing were recently removed. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

Here is also this Blog from the TrisMcCall Report

The trouble is that King is no Frank Hague. Chances are, he's not even the new John Kenny. Kenny got in at least four solid years of bamboozling the public; the Parking Authority saw through King the moment he walked through the door. Now, in almost every city, the Parking Authority is a repository of misgovenment. But King made a particularly awful mess of the finances of the department during his tenure there, scrambling the books, raising hell, and alienating people. By all accounts King treated his employees at the Parking Authority terribly, milking them for donations to his Association. Instead of hanging his head in shame -- which is what he really ought to be doing -- King has instead decided that he deserves a promotion to City Council. It seems absurd to even have to say it, but this man should not be a municipal legislator.

So should I damn Booker's "insider" support for Mayor Healy even though Booker is doing good for Newark? Not black & white is it alanwright?

Leave the black/white dichotomy aside. Nobody holds that position. Certainly not me.

Booker is not a Jersey City insider because he does not derive benefits from JC in the way we're considering: relatives being hired, no-show jobs, parking ticket scams, etc.

He may be a political or party ally, but not an insider. Thus, his support for Healy and whatever he's doing good for Newark have no bearing on this.

Dang, hate to be the one to bust your bubble with the "not a Jersey City insider" theory.

Corey Booker is on leave from his partnership in the BOOKER, RABINOWITZ, TRENK, LUBETKIN, TULLY, DiPASQUALE & WEBSTER in Newark. This law firm holds numerous contracts in both Jersey City government [ like the incinerator and housing authority to name two] along with numerous financial firms like Goldman Sachs and developers. Elnardo Webster was Bobby Jackson, Joe Cardwell?s, Glen Cunningham?s attorney.

Re: Double dipping on JC Council

Don't forget Viola Richardson - $40,000 on the city council and $85,000 at her job in Hudson County . (both publicly funded jobs). Oh wait, there is also that "disability" she went on as soon as she was elected and now gives her a pension from having to "retire" (sic) from JCPD. Odd how no one ever mentions Viola (3 taxpayer paychecks) Richardson.

Re: A response to Mayoral Candidate Louis Manzo

Manzo accused, then Fulop said, then .
Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Everybody's talking about Fulop, Manzo, Catrillo, Levin, Gaughan, Brennan, Levin, Richardson, Healy, Lipski, Bertoli: All we are saaayiiiing is give peace a chance.

Sorry, that illusion for the Jersey City municipal election campaign season is long gone.

There has already been quite a bit of behind the scenes name calling and it finally broke out Friday, when mayoral candidate Louis Manzo, a former assemblyman, said that Downtown Councilman Steven Fulop is a phony. Manzo said the councilman, his right-hand man Tom Bertoli and Grateful Dead-loving Journal Square Councilman Steve Lipski have been badmouthing him to campaign contributors and others.

The former assemblyman charged the attacks are part of a deal Fulop has with incumbent Mayor Jerramiah Healy in which Healy has put up a Ward E candidate (Guy Catrillo) against Fulop with little support from the Jersey City Democratic Organization.

Fulop was unavailable for comment Friday, but he spoke to me about what he thought of Manzo's charges on Monday.

"Lou is mentally unstable," said Fulop. OK.

"He is always paranoid and sees conspiracies everywhere. He should stop wearing a 'tin' hat," the councilman continued.

I think Fulop meant aluminum cap - the kind used to ward off government or extraterrestrial radiowaves.

The councilman also charged that on Saturday, after the accusations, Manzo had begged him to run on his slate against Healy. Fulop said he turned him down.

"This is why they call him Loony Louie," said the councilman.

Manzo's camp sees the Saturday meeting differently.

"The meeting was actually called by Fulop with a request that Lou not run anyone in his ward - that it would cause a problem and may force a runoff in his (Downtown) ward," said Ivan Sutherland, a Manzo campaign spokesman.

"It was Fulop who got upset and said he will say things to destroy Lou," said Sutherland. "We're not getting involved in any schoolyard behavior, name calling. If it's not a debate on what is better for the City of Jersey City, we will not get involved."

Naturally, we could go back and forth on this for a week, but it should be noted that this form of political hand-to-hand combat provides only the surface of hidden, intricate layers of predetermined campaign plans.

Or they just wing it.
