“It’s three months, where’s my next political job?”
According to people who declined to comment on the record, that’s very much a current topic for Hoboken’s mayor Ravi Bhalla.
Hoboken’s new mayor with political junkets to Trenton and Texas under his belt is scoping out his next political position in elected office. The road of opportunity is, however, rather narrow and one that’s bedeviled Ravi Bhalla for years.
A bold move to make a jump before the four-year Hoboken mayoral term is on the table several insiders say. Bhalla made no promise not to leverage the office of Hoboken mayor for personal political gain, unlike his Reform rival Councilwoman Jen Giattino. The issue became a hot topic in last fall’s mayoral campaign.
