More falsehoods from whoever spins for the HSPC
It’s funny when people quote other people on an issue but insert a lie right at the top of the page. Must be a severe Hoboken411 disorder or blind fealty to the errors demonstrated by their political allegiance to Tim Occhipinti.
Occhipinti is wrong. You can not reprogram the County grant of $3 million to the Southwest not because of the mayor, not because it’s her decision, but BECAUSE OF THE COUNTY STIPULATIONS ON APPLYING THE GRANT MONEY.
Either way, this is a coverup. Whoever is a member of this group should make a point of challenging such behavior by the person writing on the issue. They can’t do it in the comments section of this group’s webpage.
The administrator of the HSPC page, like Hoboken411 censors comments.
As for the facts:
The comments here attributed to Tim Occhipinti’s statement on what Freeholder Anthony Romano agreed to are false. Anyone contacting the Freeholder will quickly see he clearly states where and how the $3 million can be applied. It isn’t in the Southwest. There’s no property the city owns to apply it to and the reason is because no potential seller to this point has emerged. No city ownership of a property to dedicate, no grant money.
It’s that simple.
Regarding Councilwoman Beth Mason’s request to split the funds with the Southwest. Director Forbes was not sure on the answer, but MSV is clear. You can’t do it. A simple call to the County would confirm it, and it’s spelled out in the previous story.
MSV highlighted Mason’s application of her usage of the word transparency. Where is the documentation on her $52,000 in street money? Where’s your transparency Beth Mason?
As for this shadowy HSPC group, for all we know the author below lives about as far from the Southwest as you can get.
How’s that for transparent?
