Morgan: Variation Study Committee Not Taking On City’s ‘Jim Crow Economics’

July 23, 2015 Admin Random

Jersey Citys Croson or disparity research study, documenting the exclusion of minorities and females from the almost $1 billion in contracts and buying produced annually by the community government, exposes the practice of Jim Crow economics. However, eradicating the practice does not appear to be a concern of Mayor Steve Fulops administration.

The research that was initiated during the administration of previous Mayor Jerimiah Healy during his 2nd and last term and finished in Might 2011, sat in a drawer for several years prior to Fulop was chosen. The citys procurement trends and practices were reviewed through financial years 2002 to 2008.
