Upon questioning by the Chairman regarding their involvement in City charities, Ms. Chesler indicated that K. Hovnanian has always been a partner in helping the City’s charitable organizations, however, they do not boast about it indicating that PAL and Hudson Cradle are just two of those institutions.K. Hovnanian is a real estate developer. Hovnanian is apparently involved in projects that need the approval of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.
James K. Morley is one of the commissioners of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.
James K. Morley is the chairman of the board of trustees of The Jerramiah T. Healy Charitable Foundation for A Better Jersey City. See here.
James K. Morely is also the chairman of Jersey City Redevlopment Authority. See this.
Morley is therefore apparently the person who asked the question at the top.
It is gratifying to see how public-spirited Jersey City officials are and to see the lengths to which they go (even on the record) to make sure that real estate developers in Jersey City are also public-spirited.
