Hoboken Taxpayer funded Councilman Mello makes Uber video

Oooh Dave Mello in Hoboken NJ rides a taxi wow impressive you can use an iphone geeRecently, bobble-headed “city councilman” Dave Mello proved that he adds very little of value to Hoboken. His “big achievement” is this selfie-like video he made filming his ride on a Uber Taxi (which incidentally is apparently illegal in town – demonstrating that Mello thinks he’s above the law. What next? A video of him DRUNK DRIVING?)

While we feel Uber is great as well – we already said that removing any transportation restrictions the worthless politicians invoked long ago should be the question at hand. So what else did Mello demonstrate in this hokey video?

  • Hypocrisy – once touting how Hoboken was a top-rated “walkable city,” he cannot walk just a few blocks east to Washington Street.
  • No regard for the environment – also a hot button topic (BS greenhouse gases), he adds to the so-called problem by taking a motor vehicle instead of walking or biking.
  • Does not support local businesses. Shops at Baby Gap instead of our unique boutiques.

And lastly – instead of offering a detailed solution to this car conundrum – he does like any other weasel politico does – points fingers and issues “blanket statements” with no tangible, thought-out reasoning in sight to show his competence. Takeaway? He’s like 99% of everyone else who spends his time using “apps” to bolster his ego.

I’ve met Mr. Mello a few times at various political events, and I will say hands down that this is one of the most phony bastards I’ve ever met. He does not even realize how fake and self-serving he is. I’ll say he presents himself nicely, but beneath the exterior, I can sense weakness. He needs those authoritative positions like lawyer, councilman to enhance his meager existence. I will never trust this man. I hope he goes away soon. Not a good representation of Hoboken whatsoever. The sooner the better.

Agreed, Mello is a complete hack as is Dana Wefer also on the Housing Board ad a wanna-be Councilperson. To be fair though one should rank order Bhalla and Cunningham as also-ran hacks. Doyle is not that far behind either.[quote comment=”223731″]I’ve met Mr. Mello a few times at various political events, and I will say hands down that this is one of the most phony bastards I’ve ever met.

The Councilman appears to be saying in this video that he participated in an activity that is apparently illegal in Hoboken. While it could be considered to be a minor violation of the law, a public official takes a sworn oath to uphold the law whether or not he may agree with that particular law. Someone should investigate whether or not the councilman has violated the public trust.

\typical layers of Zimmer hyporacy and manipulation. She has the police issue large tickets to generate revenue then she pokes at Senator Stack and Assemblyman Garcia and pretends it is a regulatory issue. Next her crony jumps into the fray utilizing said unregulated vehicle without consequence and as 411 mentions in direct contradiction to the walkable/bikable city promoting.[quote comment=”223732″]The Councilman appears to be saying in this video that he participated in an activity that is apparently illegal in Hoboken.
