The Council of No

The City Council meeting was not broadcast live for the special meeting Monday, however a source onsite indicated the “Council of No” was present and accounted for so if you were looking forward to a drinking game of how many times the words “Dave Roberts” would be trotted out in grandstanding fashion, then your liver will thank you.

Claire Moses from is currently onsite and will be your best source for first hand reporting.  If you want a package of garbage and lies fed to you, then Hoboken411 is your best choice.

Update: Claire Moses twitter noted the line item move passed 6-3.  Okay, the odds are below betting level but no doubt the three no votes will be “no” surprise.
Related: Claire Moses of attended and just posted a story detailing the events leading into the vote last evening.  She captures the substance of it, and features quotes getting to the heart of the matter by former Finance Director Nick Trasente, Councilman Michael Lenz and also Councilwoman Carol Marsh who concluded with a quotable remark to the reactionary “Council of No” – “Apples, oranges, kumquats and zebras – let’s vote.”
Wednesday Mayor Dawn Zimmer is scheduled to go to Trenton to present Hoboken’s credentials for sovereignty and completing the term of the fiscal state monitor.  Hoboken voters should keep in mind who worked to bring this moment to fruition and those who only worked for their own destructive political ends at the town’s expense.
