Delivering the salivating profits from the undocumented Vision 20/20 "plan" is on tap in the background this evening when the City Council acts on an open Hoboken Housing Authority seat.
Hey, it ain't a billion dollar Rockefeller project but this one would wet a lot of beaks.
Trading on zoning variances for $5,000 a pop is chump change; this is seven figure profits per building with expectation of a dozen and a half or more in the wings covering 15 acres of downtown Hoboken.
There's a lot of Hoboken Soprano dreams at stake. Promises of new beach homes, vacation spots, you name it there's an Old Guard friend and family plan in the wings saying gimme a piece in Hoboken, Union City, West New York and beyond.
Lots of expectations for Carmelo Garcia to deliver. But how can he do so without (rubber-stamp) votes on the Hoboken Housing Authority board?
It could get ugly.
