    I am writing on behalf of Hudson Milestones and all NJ health care facilities and congregate setting facilities to voice my firm opposition to the new executive order 283 put in place last week mandating covid-19 vaccines and/or boosters to direct support professionals. This executive order is ludicrous and the impact is detrimental.

    We barely had enough staff to cover our needs for the past two years and now you decide to implement draconian mandates that will indeed cause great harm and crises across the state. The impacted staff have worked hard through the pandemic and the government let them down (lack of PPE, inefficient funding, lack of effective medicines to treat the virus). They still went to work, risking their own health and that of their families’ continuing to support the state’s most vulnerable, the sick and disabled!. It’s unfair that they are going to risk losing their jobs over a vaccine that is proven ineffective from the recent Omicron variant and where natural immunity has been proven more effective against the more severe Delta variant. In the current climate where countries are dropping ALL covid restrictions, NJ is going in the opposite direction and enforcing draconian mandates under the guise of “safety” and “concern”.

    This executive order is doing nothing but exercising your power over the population and is debilitating agencies across the state. Please let me know what you will do when there aren’t enough staff to cover the hospitals and group home facilities? We heard the mandate but no recommendation on what we can do when there are no staff.

    I demand that you provide the option for covid testing, as we have been doing for over a year now and let our HEROES continue to do the wonderful jobs that they do!

    I received a mailer that has Tom DeGise quoted saying, among other things:

    “The best way to keep you and your loved ones safe is by getting a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine, or if eligible, a booster shot.”

    You stated that the shot is “safe and effective.” Can you provide for me the data from which you made this statement that proves the validity that both the vaccine and the boosters are safe and effective? What long-term studies have been done regarding the vaccines? The boosters? Have there been long-term or even short-term studies on the vaccines combined with the boosters proven the combination both safe and effective? Regarding the vaccines and multiple boosters? Are you aware that two of the pharmaceutical companies shots are not finished in their trials until 2022 and 2023 respectively?

    Right now VAERS has reported almost 20,000 deaths and a million adverse affects, more than every other vaccine in history combined. This includes hospitalizations and incapacity, as well as Myocarditis, which according to one doctor I’ve seen speak reports that the 5-year survival rate from myocarditis is 40%. The FDA has asked to hide the data they used to approve the safety of the shot until 2076 from the public. Why would they want to hide this data for over 50 years?

    A lawyer I spoke with says that making a bold statement like you did on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine makes you accountable. I would like to receive in writing a direct answer to all the questions I posed above. In addition, I would like in writing that Tom DeGise will be monetarily responsible for any damage, physically and financially, that may occur to me or my family if there are side effects—and anyone else—including but not limited to blood clots and death.

    In lieu of this, I would like you to make a public statement, both orally and written, that this statement you made is not based on any scientific information and that you withdraw the statement and apologize. Otherwise, you should prepare for a lawsuit.

    Politicians should not be involved in propaganda and giving medical advice not based on scientific evidence is propaganda and you will be held responsible for this.

    Also, regarding Jersey City, NJ rewarding a contract to Netta Architects, Mr. Netta working with Mr. Simoes is not an isolated incident.

    A search of the public Union County New Jersey property records under the name of Netta, Nicholas, reveals that on 7/25/19, Mr. Netta and Mr. Simoes worked together on a transaction to obtain a mortgage from a BCB Bank. Why would Mr. Netta work with Mr. Simoes – AFTER he was indicted and arrested by the Feds for an alleged illegal five million dollar mortgage scheme – to obtain a mortgage from a bank?

    Who does that?

    And why would the current Jersey City, NJ mayor and city council award Mr. Netta with a contract to design a new fire house?

    Why should our tax dollars go towards businesses that work with accused felons?

    Why would Jersey City, NJ award the contract to design its new fire house (construction began last month, August 2021) to Netta Architects when it is public information that Netta Architects does business with people who were indicted and arrested in 2017 for alleged mortgage fraud of five million dollars and facing thirty years in prison?

    Netta Architects hired attorney Fausto Simoes (who was one of three people indicted and arrested re the above) to represent it in an architectural design for Asbury Park, NJ in 2019.

    A Google search of “Fausto Simoes attorney” and “Nick Netta and Fausto Simoes” will verify the above.

    Does this mean that Jersey City, NJ will grant business to anyone who has business dealings with potential felons?

    Hi, County Executive Tom DeGise

    My name is Aidan Thorvalson and I am messaging to demand that your terminate your contracts with ICE. The prisoners in their detentions facilities went on a hungerstrike protesting that egregious conditions that they are living in. They do not deserve to be taken away form their families. Especially with Covid-19, it makes the ICE facilites even more dangerous with prisoners at risk of contracting it. Please meet with local advocates to free the prisoners and end the detention of these people.

    Thank you,

    -Aidan Thorvalson

    As a father my Hudson county family is deeply disappointed in the Board of Chosen Freeholders renewing that 10 year ICE contract, November 23rd. To understand that a mere revenue stream was your motive for renewing this contract puts you in the company of the Trumpian pack of nationalistic hatemongers.

    Tom, please change course and keep your promise of two years ago to cancel Hudson County’s Contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Locking up immigrants is as un-American as it gets. You are enabling a callously immoral system of profit by prison.

    Shame on our ‘leadership’ in Hudson County, ICE OUT of HUDSON COUNTY.

    It is unconscionable that Hudson County continues to contract with ICE. These contracts should never have been renewed and you need to take action to cancel them now.

    “No governmental entity in New Jersey should be accepting money from ICE to detain individuals, particularly when the agency continues to pursue inhumane, xenophobic policies designed to terrorize and rip apart immigrant families; it has to stop,” —Senator Bob Menendez

    “No private or government entity should be contracting with ICE. These arrangements too often incentivize locking up people who pose no risk to the public, and perpetuate dangerous and dehumanizing immigration enforcement tactics.” Senator Cory Booker

    Your editorial today on immigration would have been a lot more effective without the intermittent virtue-signaling tirades against Trump. Have the guts to take a stand without using a third party you hate as a justification for them. Never-the-less, it is refreshing to see there’s at least one Democrat who doesn’t want violent criminals roaming our streets.

    County Executive DeGise you need to reject any contracts with ICE approved by the Board of Chosen Freeholders. ICE is an agency off the rails and any cent of blood money is not welcome here in Hudson County. If you truly believe Biden, the Vice President during the Obama administration, the same administration that earned the nickname “deported in chief”, will fix anything relating to ICE’s treatment of detainees and those it is separating, you’re a sucker.

    ICE has been found to be performing forced hysterecyomies on women in it’s custody. Do you want to support an agency that has its mission rooted in white supremacy to use the Hudson facility as cover for its more heinous acts? Cut all ties with ICE!

    I’m contacting you to demand the release of people detained in our community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and an end to Hudson County’s contract with ICE. You may have heard the news about the whistleblower complaint filed against the Irwin Detention Center. It’s the ICE facility in Georgia that has become notorious overnight for forcibly sterilizing women who are detained there. In case you didn’t know, that is an act of genocide according to the United Nation’s Office on Genocide Prevention. However, the denial of health care to incarcerated people, particularly during a pandemic, is really what the whistleblower complaint was about. Hudson County has its own history of denying healthcare to people in ICE detention. You may recall Gaspar Avendaño-Hernandez whose medical condition, resulting from repeated tasering by ICE in February of 2020, required him to remain hydrated. However, when he was transferred to the Hudson County Jail he was stripped naked, placed in solitary and provided with water only every eight hours. The abuse and cruelty that is going on inside the U.S. immigration system is the product of an intentionally brutal and racist system that goes far beyond one facility. This system, a product of White Supremacist ideology, tortures the primarily Black and Brown people it targets. The question now is – will you have the courage to exercise your power to end this collaboration with ICE and terminate the contract? Will you do it in a way that does not simply trade profiting from one set of people for another? I am referring to the potential contract with Mercer County. I look forward to your response.
