And who’s bloody idea was this?
We’re digging through the carcass of the mess last night on some of these appointments and there’s more to come. Our friends at The Association are just having a grand old laugh over these developments. They are doubled over and laughing at how we are being tooled.
How does it feel to be a tool for the exploitive end of Hoboken?
As we’re weeding through the quagmire at Da Sewar, we’re stuck with this gem of a choice, Marianne Camporeale, a senior from Fox Hills rammed through for a slot on the Hoboken Housing Authority. Can someone tell me what she brings to the table?
We’re all ears?
The only qualification we know of is in the description brought to us by the Wiley Coyote, Eric Kurta who parked this gem on youtube with the zinger, “Yuppie-hating Marianne “I hate Newcomers and New Yorkers” Camporeale, senior citizen and Zoning Board member, is spitting mad.”
Which may explain why Hobokenite politico Perry Belfiore is so fond of her. We’ll let Perry address that at his own convenience.
More of the new face of reform. Marianne ploughed through the council on a 9-0 vote.
We’re expecting Marlon Brando to pop out and make a ghostly appearance any time now at future City Council meetings with a reprise of some of his classic work “On the Waterfront.”
Update: A reader questioned the blurb from the youtube. Here’s the details on the earlier appointment:

Update 2: Some greatest hits from the new HHA appointee (the Hudson Reporter):
As MSV had singled out Perry Belfiore by name in the post, his reply has been posted within the original story on the basis of fairness and prominence.
