Beth Mason to hold park meeting in 5th ward senior center
As MSV noted previously, 2nd ward Councilwoman Beth Mason’s two pronged plan to keep her options open for a third run for mayor or a NJ Assembly seat moves forward with a community meeting at Fox Hills in Peter Cunningham’s 5th ward on the City’s parks including Legion Park.
A fifth ward resident received this Beth Mason flier:
Legion Park as the City notes in a release earlier (see below) is on schedule for re-opening this week joining Jefferson Street Park re-opening today. Last week the Jackson Street Park reopened and the City’s efforts are all part of Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s plan announced at the State of the City address in January to make 2012 “Year of Parks.”
From the Mayor’s January State of the City address:
Talking Ed Note: We’re not sure what if any role Beth Mason had in Legion Park’s upgrades but since 2007 she’s had every opportunity to do something other than just discovering the mayor’s citywide efforts on parks.
As the City is on track to reopen Legion Park later this week with its upgrades, will Councilwoman Beth Mason complain there was no public meeting before the implementation?
At a recent City Council meeting Mason did exactly that before it was explained to her by Director Brandy Forbes upgrades with similar equipment maintaining a park’s existing size and replacing old equipment do not require a public meeting beforehand.
|Tim Occhipinti’s latest “Intregrity theft.” Apparently Mama Occhipinti did not succeed imparting to Tim on such. Stealing votes to stealing elections to now stealing credit, not a big leap for Tim.|
The City has conducted public meetings on more potential projects than its predecessors from the changes in the Viaduct at 14th street, to NJ Transit, to a Western Edge proposal and of course parks.
Is MORTe looking to hijack the credit for the work of others on parks? Well if Tim Occhipinti’s Facebook offers any clue, he’s again taking credit for the Administration’s work:
“The Jefferson Street park next to the Boys & Girls Club opens today!
It looks terrific, great job everyone. Delivering on another campaign
promise – both 4th Ward pocket parks upgraded!”
Paging Director Leo Pellegrini, Paging Director Pellegrini. We need to report a theft. You’ve been robbed!
