Mayor Steve Fulop has been perpetrating a crime in Jersey City. Through cultural exploitation or systemic manipulation of the real estate market, Fulop has widely disadvantaged the poorest homeowners. Fulop robs poor & pays the rich.
A full revaluation of properties throughout Jersey City has not been done for 27 years!
Wealthy white neighborhoods where home prices have skyrocketed are paying the same taxes on their property as poorer neighborhoods, where predominantly African-American and Latino residents are being robbed.
Jersey City's tax system has served as a kind of Robin Hood in reverse.
Fulop skews the city's tax system to subsidize richer homeowners at the expense of the poor and minorities.
That could have been considered neglect, but action to fix the injustice was stopped in its tracks by Mayor Steve Fulop. This is a problem that Steve Fulop does not want to fix.
