Hoboken City Council Meeting January 22 2014 NJ Dawn Zimmer Dear Diary

Property taxpayers fund pay raises for Zimmer Cronies!

Yes – you read that right. Instead of “25% reduction in property taxes in the first year alone,” Dawn Zimmer’s election propaganda literature should have said “Vote for me, and I’ll dole out FAT pay raises to my loyal lemming cronies!”

Here are the details, including Zimmer’s “coffee gopher” who now will be making nearly 80k a year to write 160 character Tweets on her behalf:

    Why not just double the salaries and throw in 4 more weeks of vacation too.

    A 30% raise to corporate counsel? that’s crazy especially with all the outside attorneys used.

    Who the heck is the confidential aid? Is this Zimmer’s diary assistant? body guard? driver?

    These are the same Directors/administrators that do not even respond to constituent requests. Why would Zimmer be giving them raises except to get them to do exactly what she wants rather than to execute their jobs w integrity.

      10 – 30% raises? Not bad for a REFORM administration. I hope all of the Kool Aid drinkers are proud that they gave the Mayor control of the City Council. The Director of Soccer gets 10 percent and does pretty much nothing all day. What’s the old saying about Absolute Power?
      All the big mouths who rip into former administrations should be feeling really good tonight knowing that they will be digging deeper to support the Hoboken Patronage Mill !!![quote comment=”222455″]These are the same Directors/administrators that do not even respond to constituent requests.

        If you want to see what they do or don’t do, bring up an issue to the appropriate director and see what happens. Also hang out just a bit and City Hall and see how many Directors hang out at length in the Mayors office to shoot the breeze with Danny boy.

    Dan Goffer, $80,000 a total waste!! He’s not worth $40,000 on the open market.

    I believe that she may very well think she was told she had to approve the Rockefeller Group’s development project to get the funds… But based on all of the meetings I’ve ever been part of with her and what I’ve read, she is easily confused by complex technical topics. In reality I think they probably told her the Governor wants her to approve the redevelopment project so the private money for the flood mitigation can start moving forward. The mayor herself was touting the fact that Rockefeller was going to be assisting with the flood mitigation costs.

    “Zimmer wants to adopt “simple design,” by Rockefeller Group’s engineers, which involves building permanent flood walls along the south and north ends of Hoboken, connecting to the cliffs to the west.”

    Now that “BridgeGate” happened she’s jumping on the bandwagon and thinks it’s her moment to shine. I think she’s confused, not nefarious, which is a scary thing for Hoboken.
