8 years

Yes fans of the Jersey City Desk, Johnny has been putting down the stories that move Jersey City for eight years today. The big stories, the little ones, the quick mentions of those who make Jersey City a better place and the longer pieces on those who don't. Over these last eight years Johnny has tried to learn about the topics before speaking out of turn. To this end caution has been a good friend to Johnny as he lets stories play out, no assumption from all those years in Michigan at the Ypsi City Desk where he pretty much knew from habit what might happen. He's eagerly learned about things like bodegas aren't party stores, what freeholders are and New Jersey's quirky election set-up as well as oddities like in New Jersey citizens can't better their lives with ballot petition initiatives. He's done copious amounts of research on Jersey City and New Jersey.

In eight years Johnny has seen the good, the bad and of course the ugly. He'll keep on bringing you his opinionated version of events in New Jersey's hottest and coolest city. He'll never lie, he'll never make shit up but he will bring the thunder when necessary. Honest opinion, that's Johnny's promise to you.

Thank you for being part of Johnny's journey, readers, it's always ever been about you.
