  •  what did he say his policies are? (2+ / 0-)

    did he mention laying off Newark's sanitation workers, privatizing snow removal (and then not even letting the contracts for snow removal)?

    did he mention water privatization?

    did he mention the city's ongoing and unsuccessful campaign to get rent from the Devils?

    did he mention how much of the Zuckerberg donation is going and has gone to consultants as compared to going to schools?

    He may certainly have good things to say about all these issues, but we need to judge him by how he governs Newark .

    That record is not very effective.  I would say no more effective than his predecessors Sharpe James and Kenneth Gibson.

    His close alliance with the Adubato political machine is open to question as well.  You can't get elected in NJ unless you have the machine on your side, but the Essex County machine is not working for all those great and good things that Cory is talking about as he tours the land.

    It's not a fake orgasm; it's a real yawn.
