Citizens Ready to Rally After Arrests

Last week's statewide raid on corrupt elected officials netted several from Jersey City, including Deputy Mayor Leona Baldini, Council President Mariano Vega and two of Jersey City's former mayoral candidates, Lou Manzo and L Harvey Smith. Mayor Healy also admitted to being JC Official 4 from the court papers and under investigation.

And while the officials have been indicted, much like Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, Vega is yet to resign his position on the council. Hoboken residents were protesting outside Cammarano's house over the weekend; Jersey City residents plan to rally at City Hall on Wednesday.

Ward E councilman Steven Fulop intends to introduce two resolutions on Wednesday morning, the first calling for a formal request from the council for Vega to resign. The second calls for mayor Healy to open the closed door sessions of the abatement negotiation committee.

The council meeting is being held at 10am Wednesday. Local residents intend to rally outside city hall beginning at 9am.
