Clearly this deal is better than the pile of crap deal Dawn of The Debt and the Sneaky Shadow tried to dump on the city council in the lame duck period after Dawn announced she was quitting. Still, this deal better include Suez itemizing and documenting each and every capital repair in excess they feel Hoboken owes them down to the man hours and length of pipe used so that we know the numbers they are providing are just not manufactured. It’s called due diligence and the Administration and the Business Administrator better be prepared to account for that.
Overall this is a much better deal than what Dawn of The Debt failed to properly negotiate. Simply by including other potential bidders brought Suez to account at the negotiating table. This is a win for The Administration, The City Council for voting no on Dawn of the Shadow’s crappy deal and a win for Hoboken Residents and infrastructure long term.
This is me giving credit to a Mayor I did vote for but so far is fulfilling his promise on being committed to infrastructure. Now about that second job,......
As for the real former transgendered blogging Shadow, only the Shadow Knows! Only the Shadow knows!
Our former Mayor Dawn Zimmer practiced the Jewish faith and for Ravi to turn his back on her like this is another example of how Dawn’s endorsement of Ravi as “the only one she trusts” just continues to erode her legacy. Hey Dawn is Ravi the only one you trust to endorse anti-Semticism? You and the Shadow should be so proud. How’s that winning?
For a mayor who is also a double dealing lawyer this reeks of bad judgment or even worse incompetence. A good lawyer should have seen the risks in the way this deal was constructed.
As for parking, dynamic parking can add benefits to businesses but perhaps the range can be reduced. Allowing residents to park in the more commercial spots on Washington Street for free indefinitely is harmful to businesses. The good news I guess in this is that Ravi heard the people (even if they were somewhat wrong) and adjusted the policy accordingly. Instead of “Ram it Through” Ravi we got reconciliation Ravi. Whether it was done for political reasons or policy it does not matter.
As far as the budget you cant expect it to stay flat forever however Ravi’s additional staff increases and large raises for loyalists are certainly adding upward pressure. Without the additional parking revenue if everything stays the same taxes will go up 3-4% unless hard cuts are made. Does that mean Jason Freeman has to look over his shoulder? The cuts have got to come from somewhere.
Nancy Pincushion is nothing more than unhinged and unethical propaganda spewing Ravibot.
It is my opinion that since I know Tiffanie not to be racist, that a false statement trying to convince people she is racist is in fact defamatory. It’s pretty simple. I am expressing an opinion here.
You have no proof of anything other than spurious accusations of no merit. You will disappear into the internet ethos soon enough when your techniques are rendered to not be changing the narrative that Team Ravi appears to be behind a smear campaign of several real reform council members.
Please check back at John Allen Smear HQ to get your next set of talking points. Have a nice night.
To Ravi’s loyalest supporters- Reality Check- Ravi is neither good government or reform. He is a transactionalist who played pretend reform to get an endorsement from a reformer to get into the next step of power. This purported behavior by his chief of staff is not indicative of good government practice.
Roman interviewed a number of people for this story and apparently the Bhalla Administration has more leaks than a 85 year old guy with a prostate problem.
Attacking the messenger is not effective in refuting the fact that an employeee in the employ of The City of Hoboken is apparently using company time to falsely defame a fellow city council member,. He has exposed the City of Hoboken to a serious legal risk with his nefsrious activity. Do you support such reckless lying and vitriol? If I was Mayor John Allen would be fired unless of course I was in on it.
Yet you continue to attack the blog writer. What evidence do you have to refute the story. Did the skinhead reader not go to John Allen’s apartment right after the meeting? If not where was he? Are you friends with the skinhead? Nothing is more ironic than John Allen putting up a skinhead to falsely accuse someone of being racist. Priceless comedy if it was not so disgusting.
