*Booker not sounding very happy with Vanderbeek.


Dude is so full of sh!t, just like the rest of them. "Newark is a city of hope" What a bunch of political bullsh!t.

These guys signed this agreement and now have to abide by it and somehow it's Jeffs fault. Right.

btw it's not Jeff Vanderbeeks job to clean up the city, THAT'S YOUR JOB BOOKER!

Cory Booker is ripping Jeff Vanderbeek pretty hard right now. He's calling him a liar. Just called him a "high class huckster and hustler"

Did they get Jeffs so called "promises" in a contract? If they didn't then that is their fault. If they really wanted this athletic facility and him to put all this money into job training then they should have put it into a contract.

Booker is such a clown it's not even funny.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Just to be clear, Booker did not sign on to this. However, if we wants to blame someone for this, should be the folks in the previous mayor's office that agreed to it.

You're right, it was that Sharpe James guy before him no? Either way, none of this crap is Vanderbeeks fault. What has Booker done for the city of Newark since he's been elected? I sure as hell don't see too many improvements in the city that were any of his doing.

no, newark HOPED to get $7MM in parking revenue after guaranteeing the devils $2.7MM. They haven't gotten $10MM in parking revenue so they're making next to nothing on parking.


No, the arbitrators ruled that the original lease letter is valid. The city will still pull in a lot of coin from parking.

"In 2005, James’ business administrator Richard Monteilh and Vanderbeek signed a 'parking letter' separate from the original lease agreement. The letter guarantees the Devils $2.7 million of an estimated $10 million in parking revenue generated by the arena each year."

.....

"The city will still take much of the parking revenue from around the arena, as well as payroll taxes from players and hotel taxes."

Cory Booker is ripping Jeff Vanderbeek pretty hard right now. He's calling him a liar. Just called him a "high class huckster and hustler"


If this is true then wow, Booker needs to settle down. JVB hasnt done anything wrong. If the City of Newark doesnt know how to omptimize their financial deals then thats their problem.

'South Ward Councilman Ras Baraka said the arbitrators sided with a corporation over Newark residents.'
Give me a break! The court of law says corporations have no rights? Please...

It's just unprofessional. In politics and business you understand that a businessman does what he does in negotiations and deals to get the upper hand. It's not personal and everyone does it - manipulating and omission. It's childish to call Vanderbeek out on this. It's like, "dude you're the mayor of Newark - If everyone was just doing what JVB did, you'd be in a lot better shape.

He didn't make the original deal, but he attempted to stop the project when he took office and quickly learned that you can't just break a legally binding contract because you don't like what your predecessor agreed to (remember him bitching about the City not being "gifted a luxury box at the Rock after JVB told them to shove it because they never asked or bargained for it in the deal to begin with?). He then tried to "correct" his perceived inequities in the agreement by failing to pay the Devils their owed parking revenue, which led to the Devils withholding rent payments and many people (on this board included) calling them a deadbeat organization. At the end of the day, he can rant and rave all he wants like a little kid whose mom refuses to buy him candy when checking out at the supermarket, but the correct legal decision was made.

People like Booker are the exact reason why I detest all politicians. They will say anything to get more votes and take the popular position in order to ensure their re-election. They are bigger whores than the prostitutes walking the Atlantic City boardwalk right now.

Can these remarks by Booker be interpreted as defamation of character against Vanderbeek, thus resulting in some kind of lawsuit? I'm curious to see how Jeff reacts to these accusations. I mean, what Booker said was really harsh.

I don't think damage can be proved here.

Booker is just going through the motions of any failed government leader, placing blame where it doesnt belong.

You lost Cory. What happened to the 100 million from Zuckerberg?

I liked this man up until this.

He's doing what he had to do. He already knew and never said anything about this beforehand. It runs alot deeper than JVB, it goes to the state and the prior mayor. But he has to present himself to his constituents. Remember, this is the guy that approved the James deal after appointing someone to rip it apart, it's that ironclad. I don't even know why the Newark Housing Authority took it to court.
