NJ.com published a breaking story about Hoboken’s mayor, Ravi Bhalla and it’s not good.
From the late afternoon breaking story:
From the story:
Ravi’s campaign spokesman has risen from the 2017 campaign grave to state:
“Ravi Bhalla accepts, but respectfully disagrees with the ruling,” said Bhalla spokesman Rob Horowitz.
The story ties into the pending ordinance up for a final vote on Ravi Bhalla’s second job stating:
Wednesday’s council action involves a proposed rewrite of the city code that would require the mayor to submit quarterly reports on any outside employment listing all income and a list of all clients and or contracts. Brian J. Aloia, Hoboken’s corporation counsel, recommended to the council in a six-page memo that it not adopt the ordinance, calling the change “invalid and unenforceable.”
Bhalla’s critics on the council — there are six — have said they believe the mayor’s part-time job with the Lavery firm raises potential conflict-of-interest issues.
