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!
|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.
