Zoning Board Candy to be handed out, other goodies but no transparency

Tonight’s City Council meeting includes a bunch of goodies all part of the post-Christmas presents to themselves for getting Tim Occhipinti installed into the swing seat.

We’ve got three yummy Zoning Board seats, can you see Mike “handing out the variances like candy,” Novak smiling now?  Who knows what is going to be coupled with him.

In addition there’s an HHA appointment listed but it’s a well kept secret in what that’s all about as there’s been no public call for residents to submit resumes.  Then there’s a plum North Hudson Sewerage position the council will also select.  If you close your eyes and think really hard, we’re almost back in the Mayor Russo era when everything was decided in a smokey back room of ‘the Association.’

Hoboken will get to see it all in action tonight starring the Queen of Transparency Beth Mason clearing the decks for those empty spaces on the documents to be filled in.  Will her Mason411 minion be crying a river over any of this tonight?

Have no fear, bottomless hypocrisy is here.
