Jerry Green comes out against 'gutter-style politics'?

Jerry Green comes out against 'gutter-style politics'?

Jerry Green opposing 'gutter-style politics'? At first glance, you might think so if you read Jerry's most recent blog post (see here).

It has been months since Jerry posted anything but press releases from the Assembly Democrats and I had gotten sloppy about checking his blog every day, so I missed this Tuesday's post until this morning. I was caught short by the title -- Union County Improvement Authority (UCIA) -- and wondered what he could be writing about.

Turns out it is Jerryspeak for an attack on Bernice in particular and 'the bloggers' in general.

Jerry was reacting to Bernice's post of the prior Sunday (see here) noting that a year after the so-called 'settlement' of the UCIA-City of Plainfield issues, there were still unresolved items -- including use of the parking deck by Plainfield residents and the matter of the relocation of the 'Tree Grows in Brooklyn' clock to the plaza.

Well, the terms haven't been fulfilled. But Jerry doesn't speak to Bernice's specifics. Instead, he says --

As time goes on, I will continue to work with the County and the City of Plainfield in the right direction on this matter.
-- whatever that means.

What Jerry really seems to take offense at is the suggestion that he is the boss, and that he is at war with Mayor Adrian Mapp.

All this from the man who is caught on video (see below or here) saying 'I run this mother****er'.

As for Jerry Green coming out against 'gutter-style politics', we'll just have to wait and see.

I suspect it's just Jerryspeak.

I'm sorry, but the king of gutter is against gutter? I think he needs to reign in his people on the City Council and let them start working for Plainfield. His re-election is getting closer so his hopes are understandable, but not to be trusted.

Gerry Green is GHETTO the video speaks for itself. He cannot deny what he said. His pics for Council are the same. All need to go. Gentrification now and gentrification forever until all his low life followers leave the City of Plainfield.

Really? Who does he think he’s fooling? Now he has the audacity to try and tell people what to write, think or feel. Now it’s all love and hugs and can’t we all get along! I am LMAO. I hope he had a personal conversation with Rivers, Taylor, Reid and Graves. Rivers wouldn’t know how to be professional if her life depended on it. Ass. Jerry Green needs to remember the First Amendment and respect everyone’s opinion and their freedom of speech. He also needs to tell his little puppets that their behavior in city council meetings are beyond disrespectful and does more harm to Plainfield than any article a blogger can write. Remember the city council meetings are being recorded for the world to see.

Jerry Green Plainfield needs people and leaders that are educated, intelligent, respectful, professional and have a true desire to take us to a level your gangster brain couldn’t even imagine. Plainfield would be a much better place without you and your control!

How much money did Jerry Green make off the UCIA when it bought his property on St. George Avenue in Linden? Anyone with half a brain can see that the UCIA is an unaccountable, out of control, patronage pit screwing taxpayers year after year.
