Talking Ed Note: Judy Tripodi came to Hoboken as the designated fiscal state monitor during a tough time for the city.  She got to the bottom of numerous financial problems absolutely required.  She granted an interview with MSV when she had declined to speak to any other Hoboken media while holding her position.

We thanked Judy Tripodi at the time for trusting we would tell the truth then, and we thank her again now.  She was unknown to us an avid reader of MSV and we stayed in touch after the interview.

Our deepest condolences to her family and yet another thank you for her service to Hoboken.
