Taking photos. Cutting ribbons. That seems to be the emphasis of Mayor Joe Bianchi and this new Republican majority. Why hasn't Bianchi gone on record explaining why he just hired an EnCap supporter to manage redevelopment here in NA?   Why hasn't he explained why he would pick an individual who's known for supporting EnCap, only to see the agency he headed disbanded by Chris Christie and the legislature in a bi-partisan action? Do you want an appointed bureaucrat retired from government now collecting both a pension and salary?   They seem intent on fooling all of the people, all of the time.   Let's stop with the PR machine and tell residents and taxpayers why we have a proponent of EnCap calling the shots.   Why won't Bianchi explain what's really going to happen?

The only people who think rising property taxes is not an issue in North Arlington is Mayor Joe Bianchi and council members Fitzhenry, Pronti, Cruz and Hughes. They refuse to acknowledge a spending problem and refuse to cut a penny in expenditures. Redevelopment is light years away thanks to GOP inaction as their redevelopment plan gathers dust and they reach back to a failed past by recruiting the very people who supported EnCap. Call 991-6060 and ask these people why the refuse to cut spending to give homeowners a break?   The South Bergen area property taxes have stayed in line or below the $8,161 state average — except for Rutherford and North Arlington where taxes are closer to $10,000, according to the 2013 and 2014 figures released by the Department of Community Affairs.   The state average rose 2.2 percent from 2013 to 2014, while the county property tax average is $10,826. South Bergen area towns saw an average of 2 to 3 percent difference from 2013 to 2014 — except in...

Read for yourself how they offered nothing to state officials on a budget they refused to adopt. Link to the transcript below!   Excerpts:   "I do want to just also reference for the record there are three councilmen, at least three councilmen, who are not here today, Joe Bianchi, Dan Pronti and Richard Hughes."   "We did get a letter from the three folks I just referenced. And we'll provide them for inclusion in the transcript, a copy of that letter. A couple things were raised in it that were a little concerning to us at the Division."   Read the entire transcript, CLICK HERE!

Police departments and other public agencies are obligated to promptly turn over documents requested under New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act without resorting to unjustified delay or tactics aimed at thwarting the intent of the law, a state Superior Court judge has ruled.   Judge Peter E. Doyne made the decision in Hackensack on Monday in a case involving requests by reporters for The Record and the South Bergenite for records relating to the fatal shooting by police of a suspect in an attempted auto theft in North Arlington shortly after midnight on Sept. 16.   “The OPRA framework contemplates a swift timeline for disclosure of government records,” Doyne wrote, adding that “an effort to ensure public access to sensitive issues worthy of public discussion is not to be a game of ‘hide the key.’”   Read More Via NorthJersey.com

Weekly Poll

Who will NJ Democrats choose to be their nominee for governor in 2017?

Greenwald & Sarlo potential choices for LG TRENTON – While New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) makes his way through the Midwest and particularly Iowa to take the temperature of Republicans nationally, an early crop of successors has emerged to succeed Christie in what most regard as a blue state run amok! While Democrats have entrenched and embedded majorities in both the General Assembly and Senate, Democrats have struggled to hold the governor’s chair after a series of scandals, high taxes and a bad economy has sunk several incumbents. Republicans under Tom Kean controlled the governor’s chair from 1982-1990 when Democrat James Florio became just the second gubernatorial incumbent to be defeated for reelection (William T Cahill was the first in 1969). Florio was defeated for reelection in 1993 and Christy Todd Whitman was elected and reelected with less than 50% of the electorate. In 2001 James McGreevy easily defeated former Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler only to resign under a cloud of sexual scandal. State Senator Richard Codey served as acting governor was succeeded by US Senator Jon Corzine in 2005. But in 2009 Corzine was proven to be politically weak and message less as then former US Attorney Chris Christie upset Corzine by less than 100,000 votes. Building strong bonds with Democrats across the state, Christie’s reelection was a coronation in 2013 as he trounced former Middlesex County Senator Barbara Buono. Former Ambassador Phil Murphy seems to be making inroads in various counties including Bergen and Passaic as Senate President Steve Sweeney looks to add to his South Jersey base of support in wake of stiff competition from Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop who seems to have absolute support in his home county of Hudson while vigorously seeking the support of neighboring Bergen, Passaic, Union and Essex counties. Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D) of Sayreville continues to make the rounds as well as an alternative to the more moderate Sweeney and...
