Political Action

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My name is Michael Fernández. I have just organized a Political Action Committee. It's a non-profit organization, inviting all to participate.

The Following is the P.A.C Mission Statement:

"As members of the community, we share at least some basic bond, Living or Doing Business in Harrison, which may be enough to ensure our loyalty to one another in improving the quality of life in Harrison."

I founded this Political Action Committee to improve the quality of life in Harrison, by overseeing the Political Action taking place in Harrison. We will overcome the intimidation as a group and we will strive to make sure that the Residents & Businesses in Harrison have a fair say. People feel like they do not have a voice in the local government. We will, as a group, provide a voice for proper political action.

I invite every Business owner & Harrison Resident to participate in meetings to discuss solutions to issues affecting Harrison.

I am currently working on a Web page. I am also planning on having my first meeting in a couple of weeks. For now, you can contact me by the following means:

Phone: (973) 474-7808

You don't even live in Harrison and your father-in-law is behind this. What a joke!!A least you can spell while your f-i-l could never. Mike don't wreck your business, tell Millan to do his own dirty work. Bad decision. Too bad. I liked your fillet. Old Cielli's gets all my business.

You see if you knew how to read, you would realize that it doesn't matter if I live in Harrison. My family has had a business in Harrison for over 30 years. I have run this business for 10 years now. Now I can't vote in Harrison, BUT MY VOICE SHOULD BE HEARD.

Mr. Millan (to you at least) has not assisted me in any way. The fact is that I truly believe that things are headed in the wrong direction and that I hear many people complain with fear. This made my decision.

I'm not out to get the people in office, but I'm out to encourage Harrisonians to step up, voice their opinion. Maybe encourage someone to run for office and may the best candidate win. I will encourage public debates on real issues.

The only ones that should fear my INDEPENDENT Political Action Committee, are those that are not out for the best interest of Harrison because "As members of the community, we share at least some basic bond, Living or Doing Business in Harrison, which may be enough to ensure our loyalty to one another in improving the quality of life in Harrison."

As far as my business, I can handle it. I was already visited by someone from town and let me tell you, there is no one that can intimidate me. In fact, those who feel intimidated by this Political machine should know that I have retained an attorney, who will handle this legally.

Bad decision. Too bad. I liked your fillet. Old Cielli's gets all my business.
Enjoy, I never had a problem with competitive business. Hope you come up to me and introduce your-self if you see me there one night. I heard the food was pretty good.

Michael Fernández

P.S.

I Guess you are either scared or one of those people who try to intimidate those who voice their opinion, because I don’t see your name. LOL :)

Why is it that when someone tries to do something good in the town of Harrison, someone always has to come and try to knock them down, or try to find some hidden meaning.? It is always the way of Harrison. The same dirty people, doing the same dirty things, and trying to drag everyone down with them. They line their pockets with money, and yet drain those with no connections of their hard earned money.

Sounds like someone is trying some intimidation tactics, also the way that town employees have learned to work. It's disgusting and disheartening to see some people try to intimate those that have worked hard to bring up their businesses in town, and try to do something good. I hope that Michael Fernandez, sees right through your intimidation tactis, and continues with his work toward the PAC. I for one will be contacting him in order to join the worthy cause. I will work with him to try to put you and others like you in your place.

Since you have nothing but negative things to say about the PAC, then it appears to me that you have something that you're worried about losing or coming out. I don't see anything negative about the PAC. It is only working toward a positive outcome. why would anyone go against that, unless of course they have something to protect.

Michael, the name of your group will not work. PAC's imply they have only a hidden agenda to protect their own interests.

If you were really concerned about Harrison and it's future, you want to get a new name without the political overturn. There are many people in town that are not happy with current state of affairs.

Your mission statement with the phrase "quality of life" is the real issue. Not only in Harrison, but surrounding areas as well.

Good luck.

basis is honesty and loyalty...  not much of that these days but 1 thing is for sure...

So far, The Soccer stadium is definitely on the agenda, as well as the constant increase of property taxes and the effect the town budget has on property taxes.

If you may, please get in touch with me if you are interested in attending. I want to make sure I have adequate seating. It’s time to make a stand and do what you believe is the right thing.

A Kearny resident writes in an e-mail to FriendsofHarriso@aol.com:

Hello Mr. Fernandez,

I have been reading your posts on Kearny On the Web, and had to drop you a note to applaud you for your work in arranging this new organization while still running your business.  I am fortunate enough not to live in Harrison with all this political hoopla, and redevelopment going on, I do however live in Kearny and I must say the politics are not much better, but at least we don't have to deal with a redevelopment group such as yours. 

I did grow up in Harrison, and did love the town way back when they actually cared about the people and businesses of the town.  I have eaten in your restaurant, and my family have held many family parties in your downstairs party room and have to say it will be a loss to the community if the people of Harrison lose the Spanish Pavillion to another town.  I would love to attend your meeting just to see and hear how many people are going to support your efforts, but feel that I would be taking up a space that should be used by a Harrison resident....Because it's their VOTE that will count.

I am a Hudson County resident, so if it comes down where you put together any kind of petition that you would require signatures of the county, count me in. 

So in conclusion, Good Luck, and I hope your voice and those of the Harrison residents and businesses let the politicians know what they are up against.  Continue to post to keep the citizens informed....

You are more then welcome to attend the meeting. I'm sure growing up in Harrison you may have many friends that may want to accompany you that evening. In our first meeting I am planning on discussing some of the major issues we are facing in Harrison & some that may affect the county as well. Your opinion & experience is very important & necessary.

I would like to let the people know that this P.A.C. is not fighting a much needed Re-development in Harrison. The Re-development is an issue we will address, but it's just one of many.

Thank You for your kind words.

In a message dated 3/20/2006 5:42:35 PM Eastern Standard Time

    I would like you to email me a plan of what the P.A.C wants to achieve

and how it plans to attack. I am pretty busy and want to make sure that

taking a day away from my schedule would be worth it. Please do not answer

by asking me to just attend the meeting. Give me something to get me

motivated to be there.    Thank you

The Political Action Committee was not established for the purpose of attacking any particular party or person. I'm planning on jointly improving the quality of life in Harrison, by overseeing the Political Action taking place in Harrison.

I would like to clarify that the P.A.C. shall not be used for purposes of revenge or for individual gain. I believe this P.A.C. is solely for the purpose of finding better, more just, and fair ways of progressing. As each important issue is brought up, it will be looked at and discussed as a group, solutions will be determined and met based on overall opinions & suggestions of the group.

Motivation itself should be the fact that you can be part of an elite and strong group who's goal is to diminish all wrong doings and protect the Harrison residents and its businesses. (Harrisonians)

-This P.A.C. will :

-Encourage debates on issues.

-As a group show support to candidates with Financial and Political backing.

-Educate the public on the Political Action taking place in Harrison & the effects on them as individuals.

"I am pretty busy and want to make sure that taking a day away from my schedule would be worth it."

We all have busy days, securing our future, as our family grows.

Give it a shot!

Making a difference feels good.

I will be happy tp support you and the PAC. One of the first objectives, I believe, is to begin to attend council meetings and demand to be heard. An "open public session" is a demand that should be non-negotiable. We should all be able to stand up and speak on any issue concerning the town and it residents. Every other town has an open session at their council meetings. WE ARE NOT 2nd. CLASS CITIZENS !!

Can we discuss the conditions of the hallways in the Gardens at the meeting? B)

Your smart mouth comment is why Harrison is the way it is, someone has finally stepped up to the plate to help, and you turn it into a joke. In case you haven't notied the whole town is becoming a joke. If you can't come up with a productive idea then stay off this site. There are enough idiots in Harrison already that are running and ruining our town that need to be stopped. I suggest you take up your issues with the people who are in charge of the Gardens, that is what they are there for and leave the bigger problems to the people who really want to do something to help save Harrison.
