Guest Guest Posted April 21, 2006 Report Share Posted April 21, 2006 WHY WOULD ANYONE THAT PLANS TO REMAIN A RESIDENT IN TOWN THINK WE NEED MORE LOWER INCOME HOUSING. HARRISON HAS NOT ONE BUT TWO DIFFERENT COMPLEXES FOR LOW INCOME RESIDENTS. KEARNY AND EAST NEWARK HAVE NONE. COULD IT BE THAT A MAYOR WITH A HUGE HOME IN SOUTH JERSEY AND AN APARTMENT IN THE TOWN HE SERVES AS MAYOR REALLY DOESN'T CARE WHERE THE TOWN IS HEADED. IT SEEMS TO ME HE COULD ESCAPE TO SOUTH JERSEY WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS. MCDONOUGH HAS NO TIES TO HARRISON. HE HAS NO CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND HE AND HIS WIFE CAN RETIRE AT ANYTIME AND LEAVE. MCDONOUGH HAS ALSO ACHIEVED PENSION STATUS WITH HIS TIME IN OFFICE. WHY HOLD ON TO THIS POSITION SO FIERCELY? COULD IT BE TO ENSURE THAT HIMSELF AND EVERYONE CONNECTED TO HIM WILL CONTINUE TO REAP PERSONAL BENEFITS FROM FUTURE DEVELOPMENT? I AGREE WITH FUTURE POSTS IF WE BUILD SENIOR HOUSING WE COULD MOVE THE SENIORS FROM THE GARDENS AND COURTS AND OPEN UP SPOTS FOR MORE LOW INCOME FAMILIES.
