Like you would know how Elizabeth (correct spelling) is doing living in NV. I guess you liked when Dunn had the unemployment rate at 15%, only English was allowed to be spoken in City Hall, police were laid-off, economic development was at a standstill, and housing projects were gang and drug infested. So glad people like you moved away!! Looks like you’re the idiot!!

An Ignorant comment classifying an entire City as having low class employees. I bet you say that b/c Elizabeth has a large immigrant population. Glad u dnt live in Elizabeth b/c we dnt like low class people like you!!

No, you're the idiot!! In the 1980s, Elizabeth looked a lot better, had much less crime and far fewer gangs (which Bollwage refuses to admit are in his city). Also, Pierce Manor (which is now Oakwood Plaza) was almost all white and nobody there was being shot or stabbed. People in the Westminster section weren't moving because of the crime. I can remember being outside in the summer of 1984 on Elizabeth Ave. at night and it was safe back then. I think Elizabeth will get better again, but it won't be easy and Bollwage and the crooks on the Board of Education must go!!

Time for change in Elizabeth, the simple fact that bollwage claims that there are No Gangs should be enough, top that with he fact that keeps saying he lowered property taxes.... Hahahaha sorry had to laugh there... Maybe in the Elmora section where him the Jews and the judges live, but not by me... Time for change.... Say what you want but I'm voting for Oscar Ocasio in 2012 and I am white...
