Council shocked with massive $7,500 raise to head “face puncher” John Allen
At last week’s City Council meeting, the members inadvertently came upon another less than transparent ploy out of the mayor’s office. This time it was handing a massive $7,500 raise to Ravi Bhalla’s Chief of Staff (and head face puncher) John Allen.
Last, Vijay Chaudhuri who came in on December 5th also is believed bumped to $95,000 in the new year. He replaces the previous communications manager who was paid $72,500 for a whooping budget busting increase of $22,500.
That brings Ravi Bhalla’s army of face punchers officially near the $300,000 mark just after his first year in office. Former mayor Dawn Zimmer’s first year with one mayoral aide: $35,000.
Had enough Hoboken?
