Revenue Sharing Plan Comes After Fulop Administration Delivers Four Years of No Tax Increase, Sets Fiscal House in Order; EO Uses Rutgers Projections for Impact PILOT Projects Have on Public School System

 

Mayor Steven M. Fulop announced that today he signed an executive order that will dedicate 10 percent of the revenue from future tax abatements to the Jersey City Public Schools, with the revenue being shared through an unrestricted transfer of funds at the end of each calendar year.

“For the past four years we worked on correcting the fiscal mismanagement and structural deficit that we inherited from past administrations, and were able to deliver four consecutive years of no tax increases and three consecutive credit upgrades,” said Mayor Fulop.  “With the city’s fiscal house on solid footing, we believe now is the right time set the standard that tax abated properties contribute to the board of education to relieve the burden on all of our city taxpayers.” Continue reading Mayor Fulop Signs Executive Order Dedicating 10 Percent of Future Tax Abatement Payments to Jersey City Public Schools

National Screening Day 1984
 The Loew’s Jersey is partnering with the Jersey City Free Public Library to participate in National Screening Day / 1984
— screening of the film “1984” followed by discussion (thoughtcrime will be overlooked).

At The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre

54 Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ 07306

 
Tuesday, April 4 at 7:30PM
“1984” John Hurt, Richard Burton, Suzanna Hamilton.  Directed by Michael Radford. 1984, 120mins, Color, Rated R.  (Screened in high def digital.)
Filmed and premiered during its eponymous year — a pivotal moment that occurs in the novel on April 4 was actually filmed on April 4 —  Michael Radford’s adaptation is generally considered to be the preeminent movie version of George Orwell’s landmark novel (the story was filmed once before, in 1956 in a British production). Roger Ebert, who called it a “brilliant film”, wrote: “What is remarkable about the movie is how completely it satisfied my feelings about the book; the movie looks, feels, and almost tastes and smells like Orwell’s bleak and angry vision. John Hurt, with his scrawny body and lined and weary face, makes the perfect Winston Smith.” The film’s stark gray settings effectively set the mood of a totalitarian state. Suzanna Hamilton as Julia brings some human warmth to the otherwise grim and desolate surroundings, which makes her fate all the more shattering . In the last performance before his death, Richard Burton conveys Inner Party member O’Brien with a strange fatherly compassion that makes his sadistic role all the more disturbing. In contrast to some films that have a flashy look and make a lot of use of special effects to portray a dystopian future, “1984” focuses on the plight of humans with an austere landscape, washed-out colors, and severe close-ups that signify the omnipresence of Big Brother.  In all, this “1984” faithfully follows its literary source in story, character, and tone.  “1984” is certainly not a ‘feel-good’ movie, but it is not supposed to be.  It’s a cautionary tale intended to make you think – and also, frightened enough to want to avoid Orwell’s nightmare parable from coming true.  (Description complied from various sources.)

The first 100 attendees will receive a copy of George Orwell’s “1984,” compliments of the Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation.
