Running for Mayor of East Orange
in the June Primary
Ted Green lists his
qualifications for being elected mayor on his newest flier:
"East Orange is the
only home I have ever known."
"He's always 'been
there' for East Orange."
"Vote for one of our
His flyer states that Ted Green
has been "Helping lead the fight to lower gun
violence." This city ordinance, #41 from 2015 is
how he plans to lead this "fight." The number of REAL shootings and REAL homicides in and
around East Orange, of and by East
Orange residents, has never been adequately addressed by any of
our elected public officials. In fact, they go out of their way
to keep this information quiet. HOW he intends to make our
neighborhoods safer is never mentioned. HOW he intends to protect
home owners and seniors is never mentioned.
It seems he is purposely NOT
making any REAL campaign promises so he won't be held accountable
for breaking them if he is actually elected. An example of Ted
Green's "Silent Running" can be found in a recent
(4/18/17) article in the Essex News Daily
You can read more about Ted Green
on his own Web Site, but you won't find ANY Campaign Pledges. His only
pledge is to get elected mayor in 2018, and then, as usual, he
will begin planning for his 2022 re-election from there.
04/30/17 - 42 Union Employees of
the City are bought and paid for voters for Ted Green and Line A
That's what the headline OUGHT to
be if The Alternative Press wasn't also bought and paid for by
the same group, the Engineering Supervisory Personnel Association.
Union Endorses Ted Green for Mayor of East Orange

EAST ORANGE, NJ - ESPA, the Engineering Supervisory
Personnel Association, the trade group for engineering
and professional level engineering employees, has thrown
their endorsement for Mayor behind Ted R. Green. ESPA
says consistent concern for the City and employees is
reason for support. I say it's all
about money and keeping Ted Green from "Draining the
East Orange Swamp" of the 42 overpaid ESPA
Donald Wharton, longtime President of ESPA said,
As President of ESPA, we would like to formally
endorse Ted Green for Mayor of the City of East
Wharton said many of the employees have known Ted for
a very long time and that his record of service and
commitment to East Orange are clear and evident through
his work. I say Ted Green's pushing
through ordinance No. 48 to raise the salaries of all ESPA
employees in December 2016 has endeared him to Wharton
and the ESPA.
Wharton continued, I have known Ted for many
years, both personally and professionally and most
significantly, I know him to be someone who cares about
the City of East Orange concerning all matters grand and
small. His never-ending sponsorship of programs ranges
from those for Young Citizens to our Senior Citizens.
ESPA at East Orange City Hall has 42 members employed
in a number of municipal departments including Public
Works, Water, Buildings and Grounds, Information
Technology, Emergency Management, the East Orange Public
Library and Municipal Courts. I say
let's see them post a list naming all of these employees
and their city of residence and we'll see for ourselves
whether Ted Green OR the ESPA cares about East Orange.
05/03/17 - More Fluff and
Nonsense. Ted Green makes NO PROMISES to the Voters and Taxpayers
of East Orange.
East Orange Mayoral Candidate Ted
Green Opens Headquarters in Grand Style

EAST ORANGE, NJ - East Orange City Council Chairman
and mayoral hopeful, Ted Green opened his Main Street
Headquarters to a standing room only crowd of
supporters and well wishers.
Despite the modest decor and limited space of the
Green Campaign Headquarters, dozens of supporters
converged on the location Tuesday evening to hear their
candidate and his political allies. I
say: Not one of them is making any commitments or
promises to voters- just throwing around slogans that
mean nothing and promise less. Their sole purpose is to
get re-elected, raise YOUR taxes to give THEMSELVES more
of YOUR money to spend on THEMSELVES. If you can PROVE me
wrong, do it!
Green is running on the Democratic Party Line A using
as his slogan: Go Green in 17! With
gubernatorial hopeful Phil Murphy at the helm, the Green
team includes, 1st Ward Councilman Chris James, 2nd Ward
Councilman Romal Bullock, 3rd Ward Candidate Bergson
Leneus, 4th Ward Councilwoman Tyshammie Cooper, and 5th
Ward Councilwoman Alicia Holman.
The above are opinions of Jim Gerrish.

Candidate for 3rd Ward Council Member
