Among his reasons, Flett says taxes should be lowered with the increasing tax base but under Mayor Zimmer have remained flat.
“This burden makes it difficult, if not impossible, to afford to pay for college for your children or save for retirement. All the new development in town during the last 10 years should have reduced homeowners’ and business owners’ taxes, but instead our current administration took the savings and increased spending. Hoboken should be a destination where people want to lay down roots and raise their families, but we are currently taxing many of them out of town. Smart fiscal management builds a community by allowing people to stay.”
The council seat is one of three for at-large up this November meaning DeFusco has two additional seats to identify and fill.

to his council at-large ticket according to InsiderNJ.
Talking Ed Note: Carmelo Garcia is raising money for the DeFusco campaign according to one source. The question here: does Michael Flett know this and what will he think of having the notorious Mr. Carmelo as a campaign colleague and potential at-large council candidate.
Perhaps Mr. Fleet will see this primer on Mister Carmelo and his SLAPP-happy ways. The more you know.
