Don’t Delea; it’s for the Glory!

Well it’s time again for Hoboken’s Party with Purpose 5K race.  This
year promises to raise more loot than ever.  So throw on your sneakers
and get in the race or just cheer the runners on like Scott Delea who
will be on a bullhorn yelling, “You’re all winners!”

Can you guess why?

It’s glory to Scott Delea and Party Pupie
with Purpose with the 5K run in Hoboken.  All the proceeds other than
monies Scott decides to hold without telling donors will benefit the
children of the community including
the Boys & Girls Club, uh the Hola School and its “select” group of students. 

Talking Ed Note: There’s been
construction at the Boys & Girls Club and the building is
expanding!  But it’s not for the needy boys and girls in the community,
this is for the Hola School. Only.  Those underprivileged boys and girls
have been steadily bumped out to public facilities uptown since last
year.

For a mere $1 a year, the Boys & Girls
Club gets use of the building from the city.  The expansion has been
underway for weeks but a City Council approval only made it’s way to the
council at the July 1 meeting.  So what’s the impetus and end result of
this work?

Well the expansion of the Hola charter
school.  How much longer before they take over the whole building?  Is
the city now in the charter school subsidizing business? Because it sure
appears that way and the taxpayer is getting jacked.  No other charter
school in town gets this kind of subsidized deal, courtesy of your
taxes.

We’re sure Scott Delea who sits on the Boys
& Girls Club board is all over this and defending the rights of
the children in the community with his friend Councilman Tim Occhipinti
who is on the advisory board.  No doubt both of them have sat down and
informed Frank Raia this is not acceptable.  Yeah right.

Delea
should change the name of Party with Purpose to Pupie with Purpose as
in Frank “Pupie” Raia because that’s who is calling the shots at the
Boys & Girls Club not on behalf of the children in the community
but one favored uniquely tax subsidized charter school.

So get over and help
Scott Delea promote himself and his “charity” to the community re: the
Hola charter school.  Cuz your taxes via a building subsidy just aren’t enough.

Correction: The Boys & Girls Club pays $2 for the use of the city owned building on lower Jefferson St.
