Hoboken Housing Authority Board revamped

The Hoboken Housing Authority is revamped with the addition of two new members to the seven member board.

Hovie Forman initially anticipated to join another commissioner in LaTrenda Ross, a mayoral appointment sooner but did see a vote on his application arrive Wednesday night in the Hoboken City Council.

The universally well liked Hobokenite promptly swept the vote against other applicants, one being Joe Branco who had sought the seat previously when Carmelo Garcia held the contracted role of Exectuive Director at the agency.

HHA commissioners are slated for five year terms. The new members succeed Rob Davis and Jeanne Rodriguez who both served extended terms.

Best of luck to both Mr. Forman and Ms. Ross in ably performing their roles as commissioners.

Talking Ed Note: A knuklehead in Union City saw his stupid twitter post elevated by media within hours when he ignorantly confused an American born Sikh in Councilman Ravi Bhalla with Islamic terrorism. Coverage almost instantly found its way to which almost never reports on Hoboken these days. Councilman Bhalla has invited said knucklehead to lunch. Perhaps they'll talk about phobias of spiders or something.  

Beauty and the Beast this weekend

From the desk of Councilman Peter Cunningham:

Dear neighbors, friends and family, 

Hoboken is lucky to be rich in the arts with high accolades for our young drama students throughout the City.  Per the request of another constituent (and always delighted to support Hoboken Arts through my email list), please consider taking the time to see the High School production of Beauty and the Beast this weekend.  Times and dates are noted below.

Also many congrats to Ms. Miller and her drama student which took 1st Place in the Hudson County Teen Arts competition last weekend.  Bravo!
