WEBSITE BANNED IN JERSEY CITY
Today's Jersey Journal reports that Jersey City has banned the website, Get NJ from City Hall computers. The site contains a Hudson County message board which has been critical of the administration of Mayor Jerramiah Healey. The Journal reports:
The City Hall ban is limited to the Web site getnj.com and does not extend to other message boards on the net, which caught the attention of the ACLU of New Jersey.
The site's owner, former city employee Anthony Olszewski, cannot understand why his site is the only one banned by the city, "and not other recreational sites such as eBay.com."
We concur with Olszewski, who worked during the administration of former Republican Mayor Bret Schundler.
