The spread of COVID-19 has caused many restaurants and bars to convert to curbside and carry-out service, causing financial insecurity for servers and bartenders. This service was created to assist those workers financially and any person who lives off of tipping. The website allows visitors to select a city and donate to a randomly selected neighbor who works in the local service industry. Donors can send money directly with Venmo or Cash App; the website does not charge fees or collect data. Every time you have a drink at home during social distancing, consider tipping a local service industry worker through Venmo or Cash App. Signup in this link if you are impacted or share this with someone who lives off of tipping. This is strictly a non-profit effort to help those who need it in our community. https://serviceindustry.tips/en/nj/newark/ Contact me directly if you have any questions.

Whole city is full of potholes. I wish I can take the mayor for a ride to see how his ass will feel. Garbage is not picked up on time. Disgusting. Where is the leadership. Blame it on Trump. Maybe we need a Trump like mayor instead of the current Baraka.

Here is Newark, NJ, Deputy Mayor Rahaman Muhammad stating that his boss miraculously "got the lead out of the water" simply by securing a $120M loan from the county (14:48). He also refers to the protesters as "clowns" and "loudmouths" with "no purpose" and states that all but one do not live in Newark, but when confronted by a reporter claims he wasn't mocking them. https://www.facebook.com/rahaman.muhammad/videos/10220222546255268/
My daughter was hit by another vehicle last night (8/2/2019), at about 10:30 PM, at the intersection of South Orange Ave and Maybaum/ Oraton Pkwy. She had just started driving west on South Orange Ave when the light turned green and the other driver hit her driver's side door. If you happened to be there and saw the accident please PM me. The other driver left the scene before exchanging any information. She thinks it was a black car, make unknown, and thinks it left on Oraton Parkway. It may have front end damage. Thank you!
