Ravi Bhalla lauds Ravi-Russo Alliance with Twilight Zone Big Lie to the public

In an official Nixle release late this afternoon, the Ravi Bhalla Administration issued another fabricated political release abusing the public.

In just over a year, the Hoboken mayor is becoming a legendary liar!

This latest lie, however, breaks new ground letting the cat out of the bag on two fronts. First, the Ravi-Russo Alliance denied officially but obvious to observers last night is followed with Twilight Zone congratulations for an event that never occurred!

Then today, Mayor Ravi Bhalla thanked the City Council for passing Councilman Michael Russo's ordinance retreating on dynamic price gouging on the Hoboken parking meters.

There's one big problem. It never happened.

As reported earlier, Michael Russo's ordinance on parking meters was vigorously debated and then summarily tabled by the City Council. A rollback of the hated dynamic pricing on parking meters introduced by Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher was narrowly passed in a 5-3-1 vote.

City Council President Jen Giattino and others admonished Russo for being irresponsible in his proposed ordinance calling for 4 hours of free parking for residents on Washington St. and the Hoboken business district. She pointed to the dozens of closed storefronts saying business had suffered enough.

Back to the latest out of the hyper-politically driven mayor's office. Note the Big Lie in this official Nixle release right out of the gate!

City of Hoboken, NJ

Community: Statement from Mayor Bhalla on parking, 2019 budget

Dear "We hate informed Hobokenhorse informed readers,"

I thank the City Council for adopting the proposal by chair of the Council transportation sub-committee, Michael Russo, and my office to roll back the dynamic parking policies in Hoboken.  The feedback from the public has been valuable as we pause to identify the best ways to help improve parking for residents, visitors and business employees alike.  We look forward to working with the community as we develop parking policies that are fair and increase turnover.  I ask the Council to finalize the adoption of this proposal at the next Council meeting on second reading.

At the next Council meeting, I also urge the Council to officially accept introduction of the 2019 fiscal year budget presented by my office.  I look forward to working with the Council as we finalize a responsible budget that once again holds the line on taxes and funds valuable City services.


Now the FacePunchers in the mayor's office are facepunching the Hoboken public!
Someone has to put a stop to this.


Talking Ed Note: The mayor's office was contacted earlier asking who decided to elevate the Ravi-Russo Alliance above the truth and use Nixle to lie to the Hoboken public that Michael Russo's ordinance was passed by the City Council last night.

Clearly, there's too much money being wasted in the mayor's office. Now the FacePunchers are facepunching the public! 

There's some good news in this abuse of public resources. At least it's not another Ravi Terror Flyer.
