Mayor Zimmer at today’s HUMC press conference
Mayor Dawn Zimmer in the press conference taken earlier today at Hoboken University Medical Center announcing a settlement of the creditors committee in the bankruptcy proceedings is very close.
Talking Ed Note: The mayor stated during the press conference the call from the State on behalf of Governor Chris Christie came while she was at Federal Bankruptcy Court in Newark. Later she added the call came late in the morning and the Governor’s office prepared the now famous statement entering the fray that afternoon.
She expressed her extreme frustration after having left the City Council meeting Wednesday night and felt she had run out of options to keep the hospital from being closed.
After the press conference she remained in the lobby of the hospital hopeful that an update would come with good news that a settlement had been reached and approved by the creditors committee.
