Political Insiders: Resnick’s Project Closer to Reality

By W. Homer Axford

 

It was a relatively dead week, so this column will be brief. The windmill is actually working again. Davis incompetence has cost you a pretty penny — about $1 million, by our count. No one will be held accountable for this gross negligence, don’t get your hopes up.  The excuse from the BMUA is that the bearing of the windmill broke.  That will happen when you forget to renew the maintenance contract and the bearing doesn’t get lubricated properly.  What a disgrace.

Davis Circus, Well a Circus

The big event at the circus tent that you paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for was well, a circus. We must admit we never really expected a circus to be there when we came up with the name “circus tent.” Anyway, here is the break down of the events, in case you missed them. There was no organization at the circus tent this weekend.  People at the Alexan and surrounding neighborhoods were livid because cars were parked everywhere with many cars blocking other cars in. Several of the circus staff were arrested for fighting and one for heroin possession.  Don’t forget, this venue will be removed after this summer. So ask yourself, are you satisfied with your return on your investment for the circus tent?

Roof Collapses at City Hall

In case you missed it, the roof at City Hall collapsed this week, destroying several computers among other things. This isn’t a metaphor, it really happened.  Shoddy labor and poor planning led to this disaster. Our fingers hurt from typing Davis incompetence, but, that is basically what it was. Hopefully they had those data files backed up on those computers.  Or maybe they wanted the “data” to disappear…..

Resnick’s Project Closer to Becoming Reality

The project slated for 46th Street and Broadway will be one step closer to becoming a reality next week. The project faced fierce opposition from surrounding neighborhood residents. These residents were promptly ignored and berated in by the city council a few months back. No surprise, the developers and the money people behind the project have major ties to City Hall, Davis and City Business Administrator Joe DeMarco.  So once again, Bayonne residents get the shaft for special interests. When will this end? When will Bayonne taxpayers get a fair shake? Questions that keep us up at night.

Please note: Political Insiders will be on hiatus this summer. We  have a new shore house and lots of work to do on it. Fear not, we will check in with monthly columns and updates until September.
