Hoboken public speaks out on Vape Van and against First Amendment government overreach

Members of the public spoke out last night, some quite eloquently on the issue of the First Amendment and the ugly altercation over a parking spot involving the owner of the Vape Van.

Most did not want to see First Amendment rights infringed or connected to any action whatsoever with a revocation of the Vape Van's business license.

Among those speaking, Hoboken Housing Authority commissioner Dana Wefer and many other Hoboken residents including friends of Vape Van owner Joe Ruggiero.

Talking Ed Note: Hoboken politico Perry Belfiore settled with the City of Hoboken after being thrown out as a public speaker during the public portion of a City Council meeting by the sitting Council President Ravi Bhalla back in October 2015.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

MSV predicted the eventual lawsuit after the early ejection reported in this story.
