Director of Finance Nick Trasente resigns
Office of the Mayor announced today:
Finance Director Nick Transante advised Mayor Zimmer yesterday that he will be taking a position with another municipality. His last day with the city of Hoboken is this Friday, March 12th. However, he will assist with the completion of the budget process on a part time basis until a replacement is found.
“I’d like to thank Mr. Trasante for helping Hoboken navigate our City through a very difficult period,” Mayor Zimmer said.
The City is currently conducting a search for a new Business Administrator. In the short term the City intends to engage an interim Finance Director. Once a new Business Administrator is retained then the selection of a new Finance Director will be completed.
Talking Ed Note: Coming into Hoboken as Director of Finance was no easy task and Nick put in a really great effort straightening out a huge amount of problems. At times he was in the middle of a crossfire and unfairly so in the unfortunate stance Hoboken finds itself with a State fiscal monitor.
MSV wishes to extend Nick all the best in his future and thank him for his service to helping Hoboken get back on the right footing. Much appreciated Nick!
