Michael Russo: Marsh and Cunningham should pay for protest walkout
In a resurrected resolution just in time for the Easter holiday, Councilman Michael Russo is calling for two council members among the mayor’s Reform majority coalition to pay the costs of a cancelled special meeting in February.
Resolution no. 2 was pulled off the agenda two weeks ago but it’s back and Councilman Michael Russo is up for another round of his favorite council pastime: politrickin.
The BoE resolution in retrospect was non-binding and would have no power over the vote held later that month when the Hoboken BoE would move its elections to November.
Talking Ed Note: The resolution introduced by Michael Russo did not have a co-sponsor before it was pulled earlier. It’s unclear if it will have a co-sponor. While this will be another entertaining game brought to you by MORTe – beth Mason, Tim Occhipinti, michael Russo and Terry Castellano, it bears no legal authority and is destined for failure unless Satan himself appears and obtains a certified council vote.
At an earlier council meeting Russo stated food pushcarts regulations were in great need of an update. On hearing this Councilwoman Jen Giattino who spent months working on the the food truck ordinance recently passed encouraged Russo to follow her lead and take on the effort.
Michael Russo couldn’t backtrack fast enough. Real work is not his thing, politrickin is.
