Tim Occhipinti no Western Edge & commercial; advocates Rockefeller instead
Here’s a short video clip of Tim Occhipinti speaking against the Western Edge Plan last Wednesday night. Carefully note his support for a huge mega-developer who recently pushed for a 40 story commercial skyscraper in Hoboken as a centerpiece of a series of high rises. That 40 story building proposed by the Rockefeller Group in Hoboken would by far be the largest building in Hoboken.

Now Occhipinti in the same breath complains about mixed use with some commercial development in one plan on the table as part of the Western Edge redevelopment and then he pushes a megadeveloper who proposes a huge out of scale 100% commercial development changing the entire character and skyline of Hoboken.
Let’s see if the other local media pick up on the this mega contradiction. So far they haven’t. But warning bells should be going off now in all corners of Hoboken, not just the fourth ward.
Talking Ed Note: MSV lost its Council footage taken of this exchange. Fortunately, the Jolly Green Giant was there and also videoed this segment. Video of Tim Occhipinti here courtesy of the Hoboken Journal.
MSV will look to obtain a response on this issue from Tim Occhipinti or his campaign.
