City Council @ 7:00 - Hoboken Housing seat Justice on tap


Streaming video by Ustream


Tonight's City Council agenda early on features the appointment to replace Councilman Michael Russo on the Hoboken Housing Authority.  Up to bat is a resolution earmarking the replacement in the name of fourth ward resident and at-large Councilman Dave Mello. So don't expect this to go smoothly. Expect some noise, the only question is how much and where it's coming from.

In the end we are about to get an education on "I did for you, you do for me."

Also on the agenda are Hoboken legal contracts. Not a big issue as most seemed contained in reasonable amounts, but th the City lost its Corporation Counsel, Mark Tabakin. From what MSV could see, he served Hoboken very well especially coordinating efforts during the hospital sale.

Even though Tabakin acted to limit some of Da Horsey's remarks on an occasion or two, he did serve Hoboken ably and with distinction.  We'll miss his cogent arguments on any number of issues.

Thank you Mr. Tabakin for your service.
