BoE Meeting 4/8/2008 – Preview


Tonight it’s the last Board of Education meeting before the election next Tuesday. Every candidate is likely to show up. The two “Silent Phils” might even make some noise for the cameras for the first time. Then again, if they didn’t speak up during the budget hearing, are they likely to speak tonight?

Speaking of the March 25th budget hearing, Hoboken411 reader estevens reports it is finally being shown on BoE Channel 77 today, but with poor audio! It took them nearly two weeks to put it up. What gives? In the meantime, you can always read the 411 recap of the meeting here.


If it took two weeks to get the budget hearing up, how long will it take to get tonight’s meeting on Channel 77? Here’s what’s on the agenda for tonight’s BoE meeting, which may also be the last with Theresa Minutillo as President.
