It Does Pay To Speak Up! And it only took 15 years! Bayonne public housing facility receives $2.6 million for renovation. Jersey Journal December 05, 2011

I wrote a letter to the then; Mayor of Bayonne, around 1995. (gave my real name, instead of saying a concerned citizen). I don't care.

I told him in detail the conditions I'd seen while visiting Bayonne's housing projects! (I've mentioned about the roaches, here and there on Kos also). I'm so glad they are finally doing something about this! Even further renovations are needed in some of Bayonne's projects, but this is a good start.

Now; We Just Have To Put A Stop To This, And We Don't Have 15 Years!

Say No to Spectra's NJ/NY Risky Gas Pipeline!

Instead of replacing existing old; worn out natural gas distribution pipeline infrastructure under our streets, leading to homes etc with new ones, The US govt is thinking about wasting financial resources by letting Spectra Energy Corp. of Houston, build a new unrelated transmission pipeline!

We don't need any more natural gas pipeline traveling through NJ and NY just so spectra can make a fortune for themselves!

The Texas Eastern natural gas pipeline from Linden to New York City, including a 15.5-mile stretch of 30-inch pipe that would travel the length of Bayonne and Jersey City before turning east near the Hoboken border and heading under the Hudson River, to Manhattan's West Village Call, e-mail, or mail U.S. state and federal elected officials and government agencies.

Jersey City Mayor to President Obama: stop the Spectra Energy pipeline Jersey Journal December 07, 2011

Key environmental permits have been approved for the building of a 16-mile natural gas pipeline across portions of northern New Jersey and into New York City. Associated Press December 02, 2011

This spectra pipeline is another environmentally disastrous, money making scheme by big oil and gas! The pipeline is unnecessary and no one wants it running through their town. We have enough old, needing replacement, gas lines already. We do not need to build another one; using all kinds of tax breaks, tax payer funds etc, to make big oil even richer!

For All My Friends In Bayonne; I remember I used to walk past with my mother, when I was a little girl and all of you used to say hi to me. I also remember how they chased you out of town just because you were Gypsies. Then you came back and now you own the entire block. Good for you. Thank you for caring about me.

Thousands of European Gypsies (Roma)
in Europe, are suffering from malnutrition and hypothermia, existing in cardboard communities on landfills and urban ghetto holding pens they call home. They have no electricity, running water, education or medical care. Please help end their suffering and act NOW...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Instead of replacing existing old; worn out natural gas pipeline infrastructure under our streets, leading to homes etc with new ones, Spectra Energy Corp. of Houston has asked federal regulators to let it build another, new unrelated pipeline!

     Gas lines in the street are "distribution" lines owned by a local utility like Public Service Electric and Gas, or whomever sends your gas bill. Things like the Spectra gas line are "transmission" lines sending gas from one place to another, with no services coming off of them in between. Different pipes owned by different companies.

      I didn't know what these kinds of pipelines were called. I just know that building this pipeline is wrong! I used the correct names, now that you told me what they were.

        I understand there are issues with the Keystone pipeline. Tar sands through an aquifer. I don't really understand the issues with the Spectra project though. It's not tar sands, and if it goes from Linden to Hudson County, no way is it crossing any aquifers.

          the Mountain Top Removal Link. I was just relating spectra as another environmentally disastrous, money making scheme by big oil and gas.

          Thank you again Dirtandiron, I'm putting this reply to you in my diary text. Kossacks like you, are my best helpers!
