Hoboken Revolt disavows Scott Delea's false charge against Councilman Peter Cunningham
Hoboken Revolt announces:
The Hoboken Tax Reform Coalition
The Steering Committee of Hoboken Revolt would like to set the record straight about a recent statement made by Scott Delea, candidate for Hoboken City Council in the 5th Ward. Mr. Delea is a former member of the Hoboken Revolt steering committee. In his statement, Mr. Delea said, “As a founding member of Hoboken Revolt and Lower Hoboken Taxes, I led the fight against corruption and higher taxes after Councilman Cunningham’s failure to pass a budget led to a 78% tax increase.” Mr. Delea was a key member of the steering committee, although not a founding member of the original organization. The founding members can attest to the fact that Revolt was created to address years of corruption and fiscal mismanagement that resulted in the massive tax increase. The objective was to hold the council members accountable for their actions.
At no time did Hoboken Revolt lay any blame on Councilman Cunningham or other members of the Council who voted against passage of the underfunded budget. Quite the opposite. We supported those council members who had the courage to reject yet another underfunded and bloated budget.
Our mission continues to focus on responsible fiscal management and transparency in government that benefits the city of Hoboken.
