Yea or Nay? City Council full house?

Update: An emergency appeal filed yesterday to stay the confirmation of Jim Doyle to the City Council at-large seat is pending with the NJ Appellate Court. There should be an answer to MORTe's chuck into the end zone by the time of the meeting tonight.

Update 2: This afternoon MSV has learned the City on behalf of its taxpayers and 50,000 residents will respond to the Mason family and MORTe allies opposing their emergency appeal.  A decision will likely come just before the City Council meeting tonight at 7:00.



Today could be the day.  Or today could be the day of another hail mary attempt in the courts to stop the inevitable in Jim Doyle's council appointment.

One way or another, there'll be clarity as tonight's City Council meeting will see which of the legal prevailing winds succeeds in the matter of Jim Doyle councilman-in-waiting.  The decades long Hoboken activist is at the end of a several month saga that saw the Mason family underwrite a staged political operation using the the courts to undo and delay his appointment.

Does the last of their legal gasps along with the Russo clan and Tim Occhipinti end along with the  attack on Hoboken taxpayers in the effort?

You never know.  MORTe really hates Hoboken taxpayers.  They don't support MORTe and take $40 in exchange for their vote.
How unreliable. 

The City Council meeting is set to begin at 7:00 and it'll be clear at that time if MORTe sues Hoboken people again to keep the swing seat on the council empty.

Councilman-in-waiting Jim Doyle may not have to wait much longer to take his council seat.
