This new 2000 bed dorm is an example of the State Government SPENDING too much of our tax dollar. STOP it Mr. Governor and use the money for the lowering of property taxes.

Mayor and Council gave the University an earful. No approval for the use of Clifton's sewer kills the project.

Shame, shame, shame, on YOU. Don't you care about education? Why would you react so negatively to this?

Because it may cause huge problems affecting the quality of life of Clifton. Shame on those that want to dump on the local neighborhoods.

Cliftonite, you will not see a drop in your property taxes. This is New Jersey and you will pay, pay, pay, pay. See all those kiddies at the end of the day streaming out of the high school? They are costing you heavy on your property taxes. Your schools will burst from all these students and you will see it in your tax bill. The school employees have strong unions along with your police and fire department. Your mayor & council can only do one thing. PAY THEM. And the money will come out of your pocket until you have no more. I feel sorry for you.
Every town in NJ will feel the financial bite, but the governor is doing the only thing he can to try to stop the runaway train on tax & spend.

However I am a rich Republican and it really don't affect me as much as you.

I'm GOP leaning too. Not rich by any standards. The party of Lincoln and Reagan suits me fine. CHRISTIE is the Republican that has the guts to stand up to unions and anyone else that doesn't believe in common sense. This is the worst economy since 29 and it's time to no raises, paying for benefits like the rest of us and not being the highest paid of any State in the country. Wonder why we have the highest property taxes. You are right that the Mayor and Council have little power because of crazy State laws but they stood tall last year and did what needed to be done. It's about time. Go Christie Go!

Back in the good old days of the mid to late 60's, New Jersey was one of the four lowest property taxed states in the country. We attracted businesses from across the river in NY to expand here. As the state prospered and it's population grew, politicians got greedy and wanted to find more ways to increase tax revenue to ensure all the political plumb jobs for their friends, families and political hacks. If that wasn't enough, they wanted free benefits and perks for them all at the expense of the businesses and taxpayers.

So, forty years later after this abuse and fleecing the taxpayers has caused much of the business to move out. The big businesses who paid the highest taxes and kept our property taxes low. Politicians didn't stop taxing the rest of those who still had to live and work here. And they didn't try to slow down the excessive hiring and high salaries & benefits of their beloved friends, families and supporters.

So now you have an overpopulated state, high unemployment, illegal aliens, crime, highest property tax in NJ history and a governor trying to do what he was elected to do. With the NJEA and other labor unions out to destroy him for trying to reign in the outlandish benefits and salaries they get, he has a tough fight ahead. The tax and waste Democrats will take your last dollar and drive your property value into the ground.

Welcome to NJ, the once Great Garden State is now going to become a welfare state. Hold on to your wallets, they will bleed green and there will never be enough to satisfy the greedy.

The LIBERALS of the State of NJ of Both parties have never cared how they spent the dollars. They just added tax after tax, fee after fee, Lotteries and gambling and still they couldn't pay the bill. Mayors and Councils throughout the state have been crying for years that the laws passed in Trenton were killing us in property taxes. Arbitrators are still giving out 4 and 5 % raises and over 10% of NJ is out of a job. Try and ask one of the Unions that contribute to the campaigns to give up a little (The 1 1/2 % toward insurance is a joke to those in private industry) they scream. It's easier than we think or see. No raises for two years and a little more toward insurance for ALL government employees. Cut back the schools less and give the real needy homeowners help with a 2010 rebate. New Jersey is one of the highest, if not highest, salaried State for Police, Fire and Teachers. Forget about all the higher level people who are all over 100,000. NOW IS THE TIME FOR EVERYONE TO COME TOGETHER ANF GET THROUGH THIS SECOND DEPRESSION. Governor Christie might not be right about the millionaire tax but it doesn't even add up top 10% of the problem.I saw the NJEA leader on Channel 12 and it doesn't sound like the union is in the real world of today's economy. We all need to speak out. If they don't take raises they should be able to save the younger teachers jobs. That's a good thing for the Kids!

Maybe someone should check with Governor about the millions being spent at MSU. Couldn't that be used to save some teachers?

Pardon me, but while it's true that I am an expert on every subject and have much more to add, I am sorry, but I must stop now. You see it's time for my enema and my medication now.

Hey come to think of it, thatís my favorite city in France. I wouldnít want to go there because that would mean I would have to leave my precious Clifton. And we all now what a fabulous place Clifton is.

City of Montclair will get sewerage from new 2000 bed dorm. Clifton doesn't have to worry about this one. Good thing the Mayor and Council sttod up at that meeting with MSU President. Now all they have to do is tell the State this place is being over built. Christie wants to save $$$$$$$$$$$Start at MSU.

Good News. Would be better news if this huge project was slowed down. The College is getting too crowded.

That really is good news! The only thing that would make it better would be a sale on Depends, to help with my Fecal incontinence.
