Beth Mason's short era as council chair ends tonight with City Council meeting @ 7:00

This is the end.  The end of the seizure of Hoboken's legislative body since the November installation of one Tim Occhipinti via a massively funded and paid voter operation.  Hey, that's not corruption, not among some in these parts, that's just Hoboken elections.

That operation led to Councilwoman Beth Mason seizing the council chair in a midnight power grab and wielding it in about as unprofessional and unethical manner in living memory inside City Council chambers.  The stain should end tonight.

The culmination of a non-stop political operation having next to nothing to do with the good of the town; be it the lack of work to make real budget cuts, a temporary budget ambush thrown down in pencil, the efforts to derail Corner Cars, the endless ambition to use five votes to obstruct and undermine and apply politrickin as the standard operating procedure.

Enough, it's over and the Beth Russo hydra ends tonight.  What Hoboken has witnessed in recent months is the most raw display of power on behalf of individual agendas laden with animosity, jealousy, envy and ambition with no regard whatsoever for consensus, respect for the institution, its members, the government, the mayor or the public.

From the first moment almost 400 paper ballots were tallied for Tim Occhipinti last November in a typical election for a ward where less than a thousand votes wins, the actions by this 'majority' has been just short of criminal.

In fact the final verdict on that is not in yet.  That will come courtesy of the FBI.


Mayor to lame duck council on more salary reductions: 'Play politics, say hello veto'

From the desk of Mayor Dawn Zimmer:

Dear Council Members,

Tonight’s City Council Agenda includes second readings of proposed Ordinances reducing the Mayor’s and Directors’ salaries over and above the 10% reduction that I myself implemented immediately upon taking office.  These proposals, which were introduced during an election campaign, appear to have been based at least in part by political rather than public policy considerations. They are not in the best interests of the City of Hoboken, and I urge the City Council to reject these ill considered measures. Please be advised that if these measures are passed on second reading, I will exercise my authority under the Faulkner Act to veto them.  

Best regards,

Mayor Zimmer
Dawn Zimmer
Mayor, City of Hoboken

As the countdown begins, remember when...

The countdown clock on the right showing common sense in the form of Jen Giattino is not the only one in Hoboken that matters.  Tonight will be the last of the Beth Russo hydra before the town can breathe deeply and move forward on any number of fronts.  Of course the sniping isn't going away, after all that's the original Beth Russo hydra trademark.

So MSV has been hunting for an old clip when Councilwoman Beth Mason tried to put her favorite website Hoboken411 on the town payroll.  Finally hitting pay dirt, it's a reel from the not so distant past.

Everyone is asking what city information reached Hoboken411 lately, but of the criminal variety the FBI would be interested in learning.  As the political apparatus for Beth Russo, has confidential electronic information been viewed from logins there on the email accounts of city officials? 

As the FBI's criminal investigation continues apace, here's a short clip showing Beth Mason doing her hardest for the biggest dirt bag in town's website, where innuendo is only a warmup and fabrication a way of life when targeting her political enemies to destroy those in elected office, local government or town resident who dare get in her way.

No source or author ever need pen their name.

Talking Ed Note:  This video clip almost two years old shows Councilwoman Beth Mason proposing Hoboken411 be paid to post city information releases on its website.  Councilwoman Carol Marsh makes it abundantly clear - not happening.

We hear Beth's ghostwriting minion has been on her payroll ever since.
Better her than us taxpayers.
