Some news...

Ceremony went well today. Before it began, while taking pictures of ex-felon and former Mayor Anthony Russo from across City Hall, he demanded no pictures be taken. "Don't tell me what to do," came the reply.

At this, he lost his temper and started making threats, "I'll come over there and knock you out."

"Go ahead do it," was the emphatic reply. More threats from Anthony Russo and the refrain, "Go ahead and try and send all the goons you want."

Then he called over the police complaining and they said, "Hey you guys can talk after the ceremony."

To which they were informed, "We've never met or spoken before."
After thanking them for their service the matter was over. This took place across the entire width of City Hall with MSV all the way to the far right and Anthony Russo all the way to the far left, a distance of at least 25 feet.

Ex-mayor Anthony Russo, not pleased with pictures at the public event.  Even less with the MSV push back.

Later, the following photo was taken and Lane Bajardi breaking an order not to speak to MSV, got up and said, "Get out of my face" as he walked directly toward. Later after being given an unwelcome response from someone in the room who we believe told him to stay away as an excrement, he went outside to "call the police."

So they were given a business card and that was the end of it as Lane Bajardi whined, "He is taking my picture and harrassing me. He's not credentialed." The word credentialed appears nowhere regarding free speech in the Constitution.

Earlier Grafix Avenger stopped by and on hearing this story laughed at the obtuse hypocrisy. At the last council meeting, she recounted, Lane Bajardi told two people to go take pictures of her as they surrounded her from three sides just a few feet away to take pictures.

Presumably, the photos are on behalf of Hoboken411 which seems to be lacking city information of late to craft its pathological lies around, but one can expect them to make do.

Council meeting is moving professionally, but Beth Mason and her friend seem quite miserable.

Is this news?

Lane Bajardi (c) at the new dawning of the council. He's forgotten his intimate, organized camera assault from only the last meeting he joined in with against Grafix Avenger as she's retold.

Obviously, the pressure is getting to some. Maybe that pressure starts with the letters FBI.

Update: It was only the next day, I realized this was almost the exact same thing that occurred at the BoE forum at Stevens last year. When Lane Bajardi came walking all the way over a row of seats and then down the aisle before his surprise assault and then forcibly robbed me of the camera and left with it. Just like yesterday, he gets up and comes over some distance to yell, "Get out of my face with that camera!"

Ravi Bhalla elected Council President

Ravi Bhalla was voted Council President minutes earlier. Only Councilwoman Beth Mason voted no, both in his nomination and the office.

The audience was laughing at both of her votes. Beth Mason is the shortest serving Council President in living memory.

Councilman Peter Cunningham was voted VP. Carol Marsh was voted on to the Planning Board.

Grist for the Mill: Lt. Gov will swear in Giattino and Cunningham ONLY!


MSV can now reveal Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno will be conducting a swearing in - but not for all council members as stated elsewhere in earlier reports. The Lt. Gov. will be swearing in newly elected 6th ward Councilwoman-elect Jen Giattino and 5th ward Councilman Peter Cunningham.

With a wide scale criminal investigation going on in town by the FBI, there will be some gasps when this comes to light. The decision on this though our sources came far sooner than when the FBI visiting Hoboken in May became known.

On background, no reason is even being offered. City Clerk Jimmy Farina will likely be the fallback position for Beth Mason, Mike Russo, Terry Castellano and Tim Occhipinti.

Update: POST CEREMONY: Anyway who suggests the choice of to swear in Council members Cunningham and Giattino was made by anyone other than the Lt. Gov. Is incorrect.

MSV can now say this information came to us earlier weeks back. So there was no council knowledge, thus it was never any of their decision.

Talking Ed Note: Isn't that interesting?

Mayor Zimmer: Welcome our special guest and join us to celebrate "the Republic"

Dear friends,
Tomorrow the new City Council will be sworn in front of City Hall
at 11:00 am!

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno will be joining us as a special guest.

The Council is getting right to work with a solid agenda at noon,
but there will be a get together after wards to celebrate.

Come join the gathering at 1 Republic when the meeting is over.
(I’ll tweet a reminder).

Sorry for the late notice of this. There's no excuse, but all I can
say is that I have been consumed by making certain that the sale of
Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC) is completed. 
Selling our hospital to Bayonne Medical Center is the only way
to save HUMC and save the taxpayers too!  I'm determined to
ensure this deal is completed in the best interests of our community.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
