Flood hires son twice for $50G-plus

Wednesday, November 28, 2007
By KEN THORBOURNE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

After what was no doubt an extensive search, Hudson County Register and Jersey City City Councilwoman Willie Flood has found her ideal employee: Her son - Phillip T. Flood II.

Within the past two months, Flood II - who was arrested in February and charged with selling marijuana out of his mother's Mercedes - has landed two government jobs, both working for mom.

On Oct. 17, the 29-year-old Flood II was hired as a $38,016-a-year data processing systems programmer in the Register's office, according to county records.

Then, on Nov. 20, Flood II began employment as a council aide to his mother - a position that earns him another $15,000 a year, officials said.

Downtown Councilman Steve Fulop raised a question about this hiring at Monday's council caucus on the grounds that recently enacted state ethic rules bar legislators from hiring relatives.

But that rule only applies to state legislators, not to elected city officials, said city Corporation Counsel Bill Matsikoudis.

Willie Flood, Flood II, and the attorney who represented Flood II on the marijuana charge all did not return phone calls yesterday seeking comment.

Flood II, a resident of Wayne Street, was charged Feb. 15 with selling marijuana at Wayne and Barrow streets, according to police reports. Flood II, along with an 18-year-old, was charged with numerous drug offenses, including dealing drugs within 1,000 feet of a school and within 500 feet of a park, reports said.

The charge was downgraded to a disorderly persons offense and referred to the Jersey City Municipal Court for disposition, an official said yesterday.

Municipal Court officials couldn't be reached yesterday.

Willie Flood earns $108,302 a year as register, a position she was elected to last November, and $34,000 a year as a council member.

I am at a loss to rational thought, when a person that has been "charged with numerous drug offenses" be suddenly "downgraded to a disorderly persons offense".
Is this Jersey City justice, at it's best?

This isn't really all that surprising; this sort of thing happens on every level of New Jersey government, from both parties.

I love that the paper writes "Flood II"

It's like a bad sequel or something.

WTF is wrong with people, why would anyone vote this person back into office? I don't think you could make up a more ridiculous story and this is real.

I didn't know that Flood II sells AND lives on Wayne street.

Makes for a 30-second commute! And it leaves you wondering why he needed mom's car - the lazy ass. He could've used a "borrowed" BJ's shopping cart. Oh, that's right - I forgot - the yuppies have invaded downtown. Even the drug dealers are going upscale!

if any of you carpetbagging yuppie newcomers gets the urge to ask, "why can't Jersey City spend more money on______ (schools, sewers, green space...)" please refer back to this thread for your answer.

i know i shouldn't be shocked anymore, as others have said, and i'm not. but i am pissed that we are supposed to accept this as jc's way. its bullsh*t and its about time these people answer for this crap.

I'm really just annoyed anymore at the state of everything, and enough is enough. i'm glad someone raised a flag, but why should this be allowed for some and not others. if its bad enough to be outlawed in one situation it should be outlawed across the board. of course i'm not that naive i know why its not, but i think it may be time for something bigger than the jc political machine to come in, and strap these bastards over the knee and slap some much needed sense or shame into them.

as jlo said, ENOUGH!

I came home for lunch to read this crap - WTF?

Flood, Flood II, the cops, Mayor and the prosecutor who agreed to this and the lesser charge should be fired on the spot - no questions asked.

Another unethical crap situation by all concerned.

There is no other solution to the ineptitude and corruption of local government but at the ballot box. We can complain and whine all we want but as long as corrupt/inept people are elected, that's what we'll get. If you want to help JC you have to vote and better yet, get involved in the political process.

i do vote, but perhaps the more efficient way is finding out who's voting for the crooks and break their index fingers hague boy style.

More of the same. I don't know how Steve Fulop can even stand to be in the same room with those people on the council, he's got more patience than me.

If you want to help, please write and offer to volunteer:

info@BetterJC.com

Because assuming they've got enough signatures, once these 2 referendum ballots come up for voting it's going to be tough sledding - the corruption in city hall has been there for a long, long time and is not going away without a fight.


I figure I can either move out of JC, or I can try to make it better - and I hate moving.

24,000 registered voters in Ward E and maybe 3500 come out for a local election.So she thinks F___ them i can do what i want.

A drug dealer is now making over Fifty thousand dollars paid with our tax dollars.

That friggen article should be cut out and taped to your fridgerator so you don't forget come election time.

This would be funny if it weren't so outrageous and pathetic.

Well, it's good to know that Flood II will be working in the Hudson County Register's office, which is responsible for "recording, filing and preserving all formal written documents affecting real property within the County. . . . The documents are checked for compliance with the statutory recording requirements, priced and then recorded."

In short, if you want to know why the office misplaced your property records, perhaps it has something to do with the quality of their hires.

At least Flood I is nothing but consistent. By hiring Flood II she seems to have abided by her personal and governing philosophy - making sure that government gives children direction and steers them away from drugs. Here's an excerpt from a 2005 Jersey City Vibe profile on Flood I:

Councilwoman Willie Flood - At Large
Monday, July 11, 2005

The once and future councilwoman knows what issues to focus on. One of the most fundamental debates in national politics centers on the role of government in our lives. For Willie Flood, this role is clear. ?I worry about our children,? Flood begins. ?So many of them have no serious direction and are attracted to selling drugs and easy money. I want them to move up.? As much as she believes parents and educators play a critical role in helping young kids rise in society, Flood sees the need for city government to play an active part. ?We need to try to provide more affordable housing for their parents."

By employing Flood II, Flood I has completed the first plank of her platform. Looks like the next plank will require the city to subsidize her house. Watch for it.

Remember when Phil Flood Jr. was arrested and some called for Willie Flood to resign ? Many on this board said NOOOOOOO.

What do you think now ?

He's a data processing systems programmer? I would like to see his resume and college transcripts.

If any of you had any real estate transactions the last few months, you better check your tax and real estate records.

http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/taxes.aspx?id=980

I was looking at the records for my building and I saw that Jersey City had one of neighbors married to someone else last month. I know they bought another unit in the building. But instead of changing the ownership of the other unit, Jersey City changed the husband's name to someone else on their current unit. Or maybe there is some kind of scam going on at City Hall.

It is changed even here:

I just had an alarming thought: is the Register's office where all deeds, mortgages real-estate tranactions, etc. get recorded? Or am I confusing that with the county recorder's office? When those documents get sent there by the lawyers for official recording, there's all sorts of personal data on them. It's up to the office to make sure sensitive data, like your SSN, are redacted from the public record. Even if they are doing that, it's not exactly comforting knowing someone with a criminal background has access to all sorts of personal data. If it's not Flood II, it's bound to be someone else, given the cesspool that's public office in Hudson County. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense to do a credit freeze: http://www.state.nj.us/dobi/division_ ... /finance/creditfreeze.htm

A credit freeze can be a major inconvenience if you want to take out a loan or apply for a new credit card, but it's the only way effective way of preventing identity theft. The hassles seem kind of minor compared to what can happen once someone has all your personal data (shudder).

I'll say it once, I'll say it a million times - NO ONE with a criminal record should have a city hall job.

...and btw, speaking of cesspools, I've been going down Montgomery alongside city hall at all different times of day for a few years now, and I've never (I mean not once) seen a car in Mayor Quimby's parking space - what is up with that.

The son being charged with numerous drug offenses and then having the county downgrade the charges to simply disorderly persons....

This is a major concern I have. It seems city government has undue influence on decisions being made at the county judicial level.

This should be a good tip for Healy next time he wants to get drunk and practice his social intervention skills - do it within the boundary of JC.

The hiring of this drug dealer is an affront to all residents of Jersey City. I am constantly reading about residents complaining of drug dealing in their neighborhood. Now a sitting city councilwoman, who herself has two goverment salarys totaling roughly $ 140,000. to $150,000 has her son (a drug dealer) hired too not one but 2 goverment jobs! Perhaps councilwoman Flood is on her way to becoming the Jersey City version of Camdens "Wayne Bryant"! Help can not be sought from the City Council because they are all on multiple payrolls with the exception of Councilman Fulop! Any chance of Mayor Healy putting an end to this insanity?

If we can't have ethical behavior from our council staff, maybe we should push for an independent board to run the employment of staff for city hall - One that doesn't discriminate against others and gives everyone a fair opportunity to employment with strict guildlines.
I wonder how many people actually applied for Flood II jobs, what was the interview process and how was it advertised?
I'd also like to know which cop gave the green light to reduce his charges - this cop would make for a good friend for times of need

Phillip Flood II - Got PTI after benefits fraud case, prior to drug bust

Got PTI after benefits fraud case, prior to drug bust

Friday, November 30, 2007
By KEN THORBOURNE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

A February marijuana arrest for Phillip Flood II - whose mother is Jersey City Councilwoman and Hudson County Register Willie Flood - was merely his latest brush with the law, officials said yesterday.

According to the state Attorney General's Office, Flood II - who was recently hired to two government jobs working for his mother - waived his right to a trial by jury when the state accused him last year of unlawfully collecting $13,000 of unemployment insurance.

Flood II allegedly committed this theft by deception - a third-degree crime - between Aug. 4, 2001 and Aug. 23, 2003, according the documents. He was accused of filling out state forms saying he was unemployed when, in fact, he was employed.

Peter Aseltine, a spokesman for the attorney general, said last night he couldn't tell from the paperwork if Flood II pleaded guilty to the accusation.

What is clear is that Flood II, 29, waived his right to an indictment by grand jury and a trial by jury and entered a pre-trial intervention program, which resulted in no crime being entered on his record, Aseltine said.

Before Flood II entered the pre-trial intervention program, in September of last year, he paid back all the money, Aseltine said.

Reached yesterday at the Register's Office, where he was hired on Oct. 17 as a $38,000-a-year data processing systems programmer, Flood II said he had "no comment on anything."

His attorney, Philip Matsikoudis, declined to comment, citing attorney/client privilege.

In February, Flood II, 29, was busted for allegedly selling marijuana out of his mother's Mercedes Benz at Wayne and Barrow streets.

That charge was downgraded to a disorderly persons offense and referred to the Jersey City Municipal Court, which didn't respond yesterday to inquiries into how the case was resolved.

Last week, Flood II started a second government gig. His mother, who didn't return phone calls yesterday seeking comment, hired him as her $15,000-a-year aide.

Asked if his mother played a role in securing his county and council jobs, Flood II, replied, "Not to my knowledge."
