4th ward already souring on Tim 'money mouth' Occhipinti
TheBankRobber a 4th ward resident sent in this artwork from lower Jackson Street with the following thoughts:

Just sending you this picture as a heads up of the missing 4th ward representative. I know Timmy has some other problems on his mind these days, but I’d like to point out that I’ve never seen Timmy in my beloved 4th Ward!
O.K., I saw him once, and that was after he finally figured out where to vote on election day. I understand that being the 4th Ward representative doesn’t necessarily mean that Timmy has to constantly walk the mean streets of the 4th Ward, but he did say at the most recent council meeting that he’s voting against the Corner Cars because of the people he’s spoken to in the 4th ward. That is when I realized that I’ve never seen him here!
Also if he’d actually walk past the Corner Cars on Harrison and 2nd he’d see that those cars aren’t there a lot of the time! Or maybe Timmy should even talk to me or all the other folks that are actually using the Corner Cars in the 4th Ward. So yeah, Timmy already completely misrepresented this ward by not knowing how many people are using the Corner Cars. Off to not a very good start as our representative. The drawing that accompanies this email is in the little park on Jackson between 1st and 2nd….If Timmy was really part of this ward, he might of actually seen it.
Talking Ed Note: Silly BankRobber, if Tim Occhipinti was independent he’d really care what you and other residents using the Corner Cars really think but that decision was made already and as we well know, the mayor introduced this program so the Council of No is against it.
Name another program in Hoboken that has generated this kind of success in such a short time. Doesn’t matter, they abhor the idea of losing one or two parking spaces near them in addition to wanting to see the mayor’s idea fail. Short of failure, they’ll just work to kill it.
There’s some additional problems with the Russo-Mason-Castellano hopes to see the popular program gone. They may also be putting the city in legal jeopardy. More on that to come.
Think of it this way, if you are and your family gave up your car and your resident parking permit because you signed on to this winning program and now the new “independent” Councilman Tim Occhipinti joins with the hostile Council of No to kill it off, how angry would you be? Dozens of people have already done so just about outpacing the spots needed for the program’s introduction. Add to that almost 1,000 residents who have signed up.
Enough maybe to join in a class action suit? Think about it and after you do, you can blame Tim Occhipinti who has already voted against the program out of the gate in his very first City Council meeting. Way to be independent Tim. Represent!
