Dawn Zimmer Mayor 


Union City Mayor Brian Stack (c) has not shown much of a neighborly relationship with next door Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer.  
He however went out of his way to aid Old Guard Boss Michele Russo for a job there with benefits.
This photo is from  outside the Elk's Club with the arrival of Gov. Chris Christie after Hurricane Sandy.

Talking Ed Note: Will update on details when available but the odds of approval on the request are not looking very good.  After all, what's the point of suspending a seat (Jim Doyle's) into legal appeals if you don't use the opportunity to do more harm to Hoboken and of course the mayor?

Do you think Michele Russo who has been making recent appearance arounds town at the HHA, the Board of Ed and the City Council meetings won't want to show who's boss?  She must be very unhappy with reforms in Hoboken not to mention she lost her free illicit health benefits along with her husband Anthony Russo in 2011.

Union City Mayor Brian Stack came to the rescue and put Michele Russo (and her husband) on the Union City BoE payroll.

Yesterday, Stack via a spokesman is quoted as being confident in the Carmelo Garcia appeal.  Here's a Jersey Journal Augism: if Stack is so confident to see Judge Bariso's decision overturned, why didn't he even issue a one sentence statement in his own name saying so?
