Absolutely unconscionable. the pervasive abuse of position. her son needs some tough love rather than enabling him.

So true jeenymayla. Anyone caught wearing baggy leather pants and a XXXL leather trench to a city job should be fired for that alone.

Fulop is right one the mark as well. They both have zero morals and it just prolongs the sordid JC governments history of back dealings, scams and corruption. What a grand city we live in.

Hopefully this is not the end of the story. Fulop was the only one who didn't vote for the appointment, big surprise there. Looks like he made the right choice.

I watched the entire segment last night and couldn;t stop laughing....

Not only does it bring to light the amount of Bullshit that goes on in local politics, but serves as a slap in the face to each of us that isn't making nearly the $100,000+ annual salary afforded Ms Flood and the $50g's to her iliterate child.

Did anyone catch the point in the segment where the BIg Baby vows to Sue Arny and Fox5 if him and His Mom fall and get hurt ?????

Folks, the scary part about all of this is, that even though all of that has been brought to light, it's going to be Bussiness as usual in good Ole JC......

WHAT A JOKE !!!

The funniest part is when Junior thinks he's being coy and philosophical and asks Diaz, "Nepotism? Well, what is nepotism?"

This type of corruption is disgusting! What is even more disgusting is the entire City Council (with the exception of Steve Fulop) voting to approve the hiring of this drug dealer. I don't know exactly when the next council election is but I can only hope these corrupt Council members are swept from their seats!

is anyone passionate enough about this issue to document the dual job holding and neopotism of the other council members?

We all bought that dude's Mercedes. There is no way a 50 K a year job is paying for that 150 K car. He was selling a lot more than weed to pay for it .

Mr. Fulop, if you are following this. How can we as a community rally to put an end to this sort of thing? We need a serious uprising here. This makes me sick.

Here are suggestions to help "renovate" Jersey City government -

- support, help, work for elected officials and candidates that constructively support and work for true reform. If you like Steven Fulop's efforts, contact betterjc.org and offer to help (and also contribute up to $20 to support the two public initiative efforts).

there may be others also worthy of support; Paul Catsandonis has run for council in Ward B and school board, and is a supporter of reform initiatives. In the past, other reform minded individuals have run downtown including Yvonne Balcer and Geoff Elkind.

- Civic JC can use help by getting more involved in the group or on specific projects including the two reform ordinance petition initiatives being done with Councilman Fulop?s group. We also could use assistance reviewing state election reports (campaign finance) and when we set up civic educational workshop among other things.

Go to meetings, register people to vote, join your neighborhood association.

If have do not time to volunteer, but can afford a contribution, contribute to the Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association?s Legal Fund to challenge the changes being made to the PAD Redevelopment Plan in conflict with the city?s master plan. The issues and problems are relevant and precedent setting for the entire city.

.... or just keep venting here....

Why did she give her son two jobs?
Councilwoman Flood speaks for first time on hiring controversy

Ricardo Kaulessar
Hudson Reporter
03/09/2008

Jersey City Councilwoman-at-Large Willie Flood gave the simplest response to the controversial hiring of her son for two jobs late last year: "This is what a mother would do."

In an exclusive interview with the Jersey City Reporter last week, Flood spoke about hiring her son Philip Jr. for the $38,000 position of computer analyst in the Hudson County Registrar's Office - with his mother as his boss - and as a City Council aide to his mother at $15,000.

But Philip Flood Jr. may not have been the best job recipient, as he was arrested last year for allegedly selling marijuana out of his mother's Mercedes-Benz at Wayne and Barrow streets in downtown Jersey City. He was also accused in 2006 by state officials of having illegally collected $13,000 in unemployment insurance while working.

Philip Jr. stepped down from the council aide's post in January, but still works at the county job.

Last month, the Mercedes-Benz that Philip Jr. was driving was impounded for having expired temporary tags and being parked in front of a hydrant.

Last week, Flood took issue with a report done by Fox News investigative reporter Arnold Diaz in January, spotlighting her son's dual job holding. She also responded last week to negative comments from her colleague, downtown Jersey City Councilman Steven Fulop, on the issue.

Fulop, who was also interviewed by Diaz, has called for Flood's son to relinquish both jobs.

Flood said she believes Fulop was the person who contacted Diaz about doing the story, but Fulop denied that he was responsible when interviewed recently. Fulop is a likely candidate for mayor next year.

Flood has served on the City Council since 2005.

Why she did it

In Arnold Diaz's report, he was shown chasing Flood and her son through City Hall, down the back stairs leading into the parking lot behind City Hall, and then to her car with Philip Flood driving away.

At the time, the councilwoman refused to give Diaz a comment.

Last week, Flood said that in retrospect, she probably would have given Diaz a comment or even a "no comment," but she didn't think that her "answers would have satisfied him."

Flood added, "He already knew what he wanted to do, which is to try to bring down my family."

Watched with family

Flood said she watched Diaz's report when it was broadcast, along with her husband Philip Sr. and son Philip Jr.

"I found myself being critical of myself while watching the show," Flood said. "I would never run from a camera again, and I would walk slowly and I would act natural. I wasn't feeling well and it was raining."

When asked why she didn't just hire her son for one job or none at all, Flood defended her son's qualifications for the county post by saying he received computer training at Delaware State University and at a specialized school, the name of which she could not remember.

She hired him for the council post because he simply offered his services at a time when she was without an aide, she said.

Flood also pointed out that the City Council had to vote to approve the hiring of her son before she brought him on as aide, and could have chosen not to approve. The City Council, with the exception of Steven Fulop (who abstained from voting), voted 8-0 in favor of the hiring.

She said that, at first, she couldn't understand why Fulop would be opposed.

"This City Council, we all look out for each other, and they have been very supportive of me through this ordeal," Flood said. "I am not sure why Mr. Fulop did this, but I don't think he understood why I did it since he does not have children of his own."

As she was about to comment further, Flood started to cry and paused for a moment before composing herself and continuing.

"I have been fortunate that mothers have come up to me and said they would have done the same thing I did."

Why he is opposed

Fulop, a young politician on the rise, said last week that his criticism of Flood hiring her son was not a personal attack on her as much as his continued public railing against the common practices of dual job holding and nepotism that exists in Jersey City and Hudson County government.

He is currently leading a petition drive to get two referenda on the ballot for the November general election, one of which would prevent elected officials or government employees from collecting more than one taxpayer-financed salary. The other would make it illegal for a developer or contractor that does business with the city to make a political contribution to a candidate for a one-year period.

"I spoke at length to Arnold Diaz about not just Willie Flood but also the way government runs around here, which is hurting the taxpayers," Fulop said. "As I commented in the interview, if the citizens knew what was going on in City Hall, they would be coming here with pitchforks."

When asked if he contacted Diaz, Fulop denied that he did. However, he said he would have done so if he'd thought of it first.

Fulop was the target of a previous Diaz segment in June 2006 dealing with access for military veterans to the Korean War Memorial at the southern end of Washington Street in downtown Jersey City.

Fulop said, of Flood Jr., "[He] is out of one job, and he has one to go."

I think that just about says it all right there.

The sad thing is that downtowners such as those who amuse themselves on this board don't realize that our embarrassingly drunk Mayor and council carry with them a major vote making machine by virtue of their vast network of patronage, nepotism and 'looking out for each other.' The City and this Bulletin Board are very different places, and what's more, the apathy of downtowners means no other candidate will be able to muster a well organized or large enough force of 'ward heelers' to get out the votes to seriously challenge the current kleptocrats in the 2009 election.

Yes, they are robbing you blind every day in the form of a massively over-sized government with literally hundreds of no-show, high benefits jobs and juicy vendor contracts which are given out to political supporters, relatives and key members of special interest contingencies. Yes, you will continue to do nothing about it other than maybe vote for one council member and maintain an 1-8 minority.

Two direct quotes from Councilman Flood confirming what we already know: back-room deals, mutual back-scratching, and nepotism.

The way I see it, our best hope is to keep the media involved - because within Jersey City, I agree - the machine is firmly in place. We have to shed some light on what's going on here, lift up the rock to expose the insects crawling around underneath.


And there's still enough going on to interest the media - even recently (just off the top of my head):

1) Healy puts the lawyer appealing his Bradley Beach conviction on the city payroll as a $46,000 "legislative research officer" (that's the best fictitious title they could come up with??)

2) Flood's Mercedes (the same one junior was selling pot out of?) turns out to be actually registered to a shady NY contracting firm (IDI).


So if you think of it and have a minute, the next time something sketchy happens in JC (and it will), write an email to the media - here's a few addresses....

Willie proudly states:

"This City Council, we all look out for each other"

...one remarkable thing about this statement is that the implication is that they all have something to be on the look out for - that they all have something to hide.

...the other remarkable thing is that she almost seems proud of how well they cover up for each other - she's doesn't even try to deny the cover-ups are going on.

Scooter, why would you wait until next time? None of those news outlets have reported on any of those items yet. And those are just the tip of the iceberg. The nepotism and patronage that you see take place on a daily basisin both city hall and the county building is appalling. If you aren't taking the time to email them yourself, you're as apathetic as everyone else in downtown - and to that I would say:

Q.E.D.

Considering that they're only just now getting around to prosecuting Sharpe James, I wouldn't hold my breath on JC corruption being high on their priority list. In the post-9/11 world, the Justice Dept. seems to have very few resources allocated to fighting local corruption.

You're watching too many movies if you think going to the media (which by all accounts ranks just BELOW politicians in the public's opinion) is going to solve the problems of corruption. Turning on the lights sends the roaches scurrying, but it doesn't get rid of them.

Besides, most of the practices people are complaining about here, like hiring relatives and dual-office holding, are currently LEGAL. So, they're not breaking the law, just acting less than ethically. But if you must tempt the media, try ethicist@nytimes.com.

On the other hand, anyone who has real (not "but of course they're crooked") evidence of wrongdoing by public officials (elected or otherwise) should contact the Hudson County Prosecutor or Chris Christie. Not the Jersey Journal.

I think Scooter's idea is dead on. Of course if we had accurate, provable, verifiable information of criminal activity then the SAG is a great step. But, frankly we don't. These articles shine the light on shady doings and in some cases do expose the necessary evidence of wrongdoing for further investigation. In the case of the latest article about Flood it again embarrasses her and may lead to more public outcry. Her exposure on the Diaz piece was so embarrassing I can't stand her and I felt embarrassed for her. This has some effect.

I do believe the NY press is the best bet. Brian Lehrer's show does a good deal of Jersey stuff and seem open to it. I think the idea is that sometimes (granted not always) momentum builds from a piece in the media.

The papers print daily and fortunately/unfortunately elections are much less often.


I live up in the Heights and I feel like calling Fulop's office to get help with some problems we have up here that seem entrenched but are piddly stuff that most municipalities can handle effectively.

Try googling IDI construction and you will find they build warehouses for AMB like the one going to be built down on rt 1&9.

Their name stands for I Deserve It,kinda fitting for the Floods no?

Maybe with our collective internet skills we can solve this Flood/IDI connection.

She voted for the AMB warehouse,her husband was on the redevelopment agency so maybe there was a quid pro quo.

Lets dig a little deeper............

The reporter who scares this administration the most is Jonathan Miller of the New York Times.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/23/nyr ... tml?scp=4&sq=healy&st=nyt

I have no clue how you would contact him but you might be able to just pick up the phone. They are all just journalists after all.

Todays JJ had at least three editorials from people saying the paper was picking on the Floods.Their rational was something along the lines of "everybody does this".

You can't make this stuff up......

The Arnold Diaz investigation was instigated by a person on JCLIST - CapnJon

Interesting how in Ricardo Kaulessar's interview of Ms. Flood in the JC Reporter she blames Fulop.
"Flood said she believes Fulop was the person who contacted Diaz about doing the story, but Fulop denied that he was responsible when interviewed recently."

I have to tell you, this type of corrupt behavior that Councilwoman Flood is perpetuating on the people of Jersey City has been historically accepted by the people as just the way that business is conducted. Councilwoman Flood in the recent article written in the Jersey city Reporter now throws the veil of motherhood over herself to try an obtain support for her sleazy behavior.

A lot of us in our family have had relatives, be it children, brothers or sisters who have had substance abuse problems. Lets not forget Councilwoman Floods son does not have such a problem he is a "DRUG DEALER". It is not Goverments duty to provide jobs to our elected officials relatives!

As for Councilman Fulop, God Bless him he seems like he is the only elected official out there with enough guts to try and stop the corrupt ways of our City and County officials.
