I can't get any help. He Never been rewarded for doing his best in school. But so many funds for a student that don't want to attend school. Basically paying a student to stay in school � See More

Any one who lives in East Orange and is SICK AND TIRED of the parking situation PLEASE PLEASE message me. I'm fuckin tired of gettin tickets every day for inadequate parking!! The city knows it doesn'...t have enough parking for its residents and still chooses to ticket us with this bull shit no parking from 2-6 ordinance. It's a CRIME and an out right SCAM. All this money they are STEALING yet our schools still SUCK the roads SUCK the police department is CORRUPT and the abandoned buildings are RAMPANT. I know I can't afford to pay these tickets let alone take a day off work to fight in court. Something needs to be done. Residents of east orange we need to come together and fight this. I'm done with it, are you? See More

Too many foreclosed houses, if the property taxes weren't so sky high maybe people will be able to hold on to their houses, and why is it so high look at the city. Dirty as hell, cops picking on litt...le people but when theres a crime being committed you can't find them. The city needs a miracle. See More

I am wondering why John Thompson, Jr., also running for Mayor of East Orange, is not featured. It's obvious that it's business as usual.

I watch (and have been approached) by the NYC license plate c...ars driven by Hasidic Jewish men scouting our city. They own a significant part of real estate in East Orange.

Are you not concerned? Maybe you're not informed.

We need to take back our city.

East Orange isn't as bad as everyone thinks it is, but i have to say. that i find it very disturbing that there isn't enough parking on halsted street for the residences who reside on that street. are 2 big lots across the street reserved for seniors, and state employees. Something needs to be done about the parking situation, because isn't not fair.
Last but not least, how can we invest in a city that keeps taking form us???

The administration has done a great job to foster a positive environment when you visit City Hall, employees are polite and helpful. They take the time to get things right for the constituents. Of cou...rse there may be the occasional "hiccup", however, my experiences there have always been positive. 👍🏾 See More

The reality is the City of East Orange is a joke. Too many city workers lining their own pockets and bleeding the property owners dry. They should be ashamed of their budget but they would have to hav...e a brain in order to be ashamed in the first place.

Never buy property here.

Nice city but could use more restaurants and gyms on main street, particularly in the Brick Church area. I feel rather safe for the most parts. Parking is terrible in general. Not sure why there is a ...sign for No Parking from 6am-2am. So somebody really is going to just park from 2am -6am only?? See More

It's a shame how the Main Streets were half plowed no salt on them or the side streets. Taxes are too high for the mess that is out here

Not so much city hall but police itself! Most of surrounding towns have suspended parking rules but I still have a ticket for permit parking?!? My space in parking lot is covered in snow, and because ...of your ill-efforts at plowing my car motor dropped out of car and my transmission blew trying to get it into driveway. A person got robbed at gun point, another stabbed, another shot, but youre worried about tickets? What a greedy excuse to get money! I have a 11 month old that I raise on a catholic school teacher salary BY MYSELF and this is how you do your residents? I feel let down by you. I'm struggling so much and you just don't help. Thanks a lot for being greedy at the worse possible time! No wonder everyone moves out of east orange. See More

You all need to fire Leroy Jones!!!
Then Prosecute him to the full extent of the law!
What he did to that Veteran is evil & cowardly!...
He aimed to hurt our vet who fought for our freedom and Leroy Jones' freedom.
That coward needs a time out behind bars for a few years!!!!
