Western Edge & BASF acres on tap - City Council @ 7:00

Tonight's June meeting agenda shows more closed session discussion surrounding the BASF site on the West Side. Hoboken has an interest in obtaining the five acres for a large congruous park on that side of town. The closed sessions must be leading to something.

Introduction of the Western Edge redevelopment is the first ordinance on tap.

Appointing three Class II special law enforcement officers is on the agenda with resolution 11.

MSV has not obtained the final write-in tallies from the City Clerk's Office but understands a district highlighted yesterday as part of Operation Mayhem, the 4-2 is confirmed. Both Councilman Dave Mello and his wife Stacy were write-in victors.

 The complete agenda:

Annette Chaparro heads to November Assembly election

Based on a late but early tally of election results, Hoboken resident Annette Chaparro will coast to November's election after her primary win last night for NJ Assembly.

Chaparro will replace the outgoing Assemblyman, Carmelo Garcia who did not run for re-election. He had lost the support of State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian Stack on the line who joined with Mayor Dawn Zimmer in tabbing Chaparro's run.

The November election for Assembly is not expected to see much beyond token Republican opposition. reports both Annette Chaparro and Raj Mukherji earned well over 6,000 votes each for the 33rd District Assembly seat.
