Flyer accuses JC Councilman Ramchal of opposing bus route for Marion section of city

A flyer circulating in the Marion section of Jersey City accuses Ward B Councilman Khemraj “Chico” Ramchal of opposing a new bus route that would serve the community, though Ramchal say the flyer consists of nothing more than “false information.”

“We are advocating for the above proposed bus route to serve our community as we are one of the few without a convenient mass transit option” states a flyer circulated in the Marion section of Jersey City.

The flyer, which doesn’t include the name of the person or group that produced it, goes on to accuse Ward B Councilman Khemraj “Chico” Ramchal (whose first name is incorrectly spelled Khamraj) of “opposing it because he doesn’t want jitney buses.”

The flyer also states that Ward C Councilman Richard Boggiano is “supporting us and has presented it to all the Council members,” and that “regardless of the type of bus, bus service is vital to our community.”

Ward’s B and C border each other within the proposed bus route identified in the flyer.

“I have been communicating with NJTRANSIT and the privately owned Westside Ave bus company. I am hopeful to have some level of public transportation restored to the community in question,” Ramchal told Hudson County  View over the phone.

“It has been an up hill‎ battle. I have also spoken with and emailed the Hudson County Improvement Authority Transportation Management program to schedule a community meeting once the weather permits.”

Boggiano told Hudson County View that Chico didn’t oppose the bus route, but that he did raise concerns about jitney buses – which Boggiano himself also shares.

Regarding the jitney buses, Ramchal stated “I engaged in some friendly bantering regarding the Jitney service but never have I said I was against any increase of transportation that would service my constituents.”

“If I could locate a reputable Jitney bus company that would be committed to a regular schedule within the zone, I would be more than willing to schedule a community meeting and make it happen.”

The flyer comes a little more than a week after a racially charged flyer, also anonymous, accusing Councilman-at-Large Daniel Rivera of racism was circulated throughout the south side of Jersey City.

“I can not believe someone would go through such an extreme measure to disseminate such false information on flyers with regards to my position,” Ramchal said regarding the production of the flyer.

    Councilman of Ward B Mr. Khemraj “Chico” Ramchal it is outstanding for no bus services in the Marion Section because it is too many corruptive streets in the community. The Marion Project is very corruptive with to much substances abuser in the Marion Project. The substances abuser are selling substances to their neighbors so the neighbors are keeping substances around the youth to keep corruptive in Marion Section. The police authority needs to get things in correct order of Jersey City, New Jersey because Jersey City, New Jersey were never corruptive as it is today. The community neighbors are not concern about things happening in Jersey City, New Jersey because the neighbors are to afraid to speak about the wrong things in Jersey City, New Jersey.

    Thanks,
