Leonard R. Kantor, 2008

Mr. Kantor is a member of the loyal oppposition. He is an advocate for the City of Bayonne as well as a critic of most of the officials that the Bayonne citizens elect to public office.
We know that Mr. Kantor has put in a lot of time and effort into his research and into his attendance at public meetings . We believe that his ideas and conclusions deserve a fair hearing.
We felt complimented by the fact that he agreed to appear on our program where he shared his vision and his ideas.

Our brief video clip has Mr. Kantor recounting a campaign promise that he made when he last ran for the office of Mayor.

Bayonne Public Advocate, 2008

Neil Barton is a frequent and public critic of the elected officials of Bayonne and of those persons that volunteer to serve on the various boards and commissions.

At the same time, Mr. Barton is a resident, a homeowner and a payer of property taxes in Bayonne. He has expended his own time, efforts, and finances to maintain a website to provide information to interested citizens and taxpayers.
You can visit his public website Bayonne Public Advocate Update. In the last months of 2009, Mr. Barton seemed to tire of promoting himself as the Bayonne Public Advocate. During those months his web page lacked any activity. Early in 2010 he quietly pulled the plug.

In the half-hour provided, Mike and The Coach gave Mr. Barton the opportunity to speak his mind and I believe that he used that opportunity as best he could. Take a look at the clip.


Assemblyman Chiappone and The Missing Paycheck, 2008

In October of 2004 a legislative aide to Assemblyman Chiappone found that he was missing a paycheck.
In April of 2005, the Bayonne Police discovered that the missing paycheck had been deposited into Assemblyman Chiapponeís personal checking account.
Mike Ransom filed an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request to get the details of the investigation into that misplaced paycheck.
In this presentation, he compared the official investigation reports from the Bayonne Police Department and the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice to the public statements made by Assemblyman Chiappone when the news of the missing paycheck became public.
Mr. Ransom is also offering a method for interested parties to get a copy of the Digital Video Disk (DVD) presentation and the Compact Disk (CD) that has the source material for that presentation.

You can see some of the results of the OPRA Request at this link
