Word is that a Korean War memorial compromise is just about ready.

The tentative details are:
1) The street will be open to traffic from 8AM to 8PM.
2) 4 parking spaces will be reserved for visitors to the memorial

A fellow vet and inexperienced Councilman from Ward E, Steve Flip Flop Fulop got his ears pinned back on this one.

While pandering to his Yuppie community he forgot about the men who served their country, his fellow vets, many disabled, only wanted to maintain a statue which had been there long before Fulop ever moved into Jersey City.

The Vets made The Wonder Councilman realize he didn't have the votes to win the day on an illegal street take over by carpetbagging Yuppies (Sorry I'm trying to sound like Gaughan here Razz ). Fulop was hard line on this issue and he told the Vets so.

This is not "a comprimise", that's the Flip Flop Fulop spin, this was a backdown from a really stupid position hard line positions which the Vets made Fulop see he was not going to win, If Fulop kept his position and pushed the vote, it would have gone down in flames with Flip Flop Fulop having egg on his face.

After being snubbed by Fulop, The Vets allowed Fulop a way out. A position mind you several months ago Fulop didn;t want to hear.

This was a Flip Flop and a face save, call it what it was, not what Flip Flop Fulop wants you to call it.

I love telling the truth. Actually, it was the Newport Waterfront Association ("NWA") who prepared the paperwork for the Vets that was submitted to the City Council along with NWA's paperwork, asking that the street be kepted open. However, it is Mayor Healy who should get the credit for keeping the street open. This is how it really played out:

The Paulus Hook Association, and Portside submitted a petition through their attorney, Jon Campbell, asking for the street to be closed permanently. Subsequently, the corporation counsel drafted a somewhat vague resolution (which I am holding in front of me), to close the street permanently, and stating that the property would be conveyed by representatives of the State of New Jersey, the Historic Paulus Hook Association, and Portside to the city of Jersey City. NWA was not provided with a copy of this resolution until the morning of August 15, 2006, the day before the scheduled city council meeting.

That afternoon, Mayor Healy, and the At-large council members, Tom Degise, and a few other officials attended the grand opening of the Port Authority's section of the Waterfront Walkway, and new pocket park (which we hope, you will all visit). NWA approached both Mayor Healy and Council president, Marianno Vega to request the matter be tabled the next day so that we could have an opportunity to read the proposed resolution, and decide what steps we should take. It was during our conversation that Mayor Healy clearly stated the road should remain open.

The following day, when I arrived at the Mary Bethune Center, the matter had been tabled. That same day, one of the Vets, and I had a visit with Robert Dalton, from the Parking Authority, to get his opinion on how to best provide parking on the street for both the taxpayers and the vets.

Since then, we understand Steve Fulop co-opted the situation and has been working out a compromise with the vets, which excludes the taxpayer, and essentially favors Portside and the Paulus Hook Association.

We are of the opinion that credit should be given where it is due. It is not Steven Fulop or even the Vets who got the street opened, the credit here belongs solely to Mayor Healy, who had the insight to recognize how really important it is to keep Washington Street open, and the authority to get it done.
