Sign of the Times: Director takes Councilwoman Mason to school

Last night the finale to this year’s budget saga ended but not without some typical Hoboken hijinks.  At one point, Councilwoman Beth Mason was complaining about a $4 million change and Finance Director Nick Trasente was explaining she was looking at the wrong line and most of the change was due to over $3 million in grants.

Finally, he decided to go help Beth Mason by pointing out what he was saying on the copy of her budget sheet.

Referencing the line under discussion wasn’t working, so Director Nick Trasente went over to help Councilwoman Beth Mason understand what he was talking about on a page in the budget amendment.

We’re not sure Mr. Trasente has any interest in teaching but he would make a fine part time substitute for 3rd grade math.
