Richard England Resigns

6/5/2008:

I’ve just CONFIRMED with my sources that Richard England has officially resigned!

It’s unsure when England, who holds two positions in Hoboken (Business Adminstrator and Purchasing Manager), will officially be off the payroll, but he’s eligible for a retirement package. His reasons for quitting? “He just couldn’t take it anymore.”

soon2b…he’s retiring or is he running? clearly he’s running. and all this fraud happened while he held the position, therefore he is responsible as well as the mayor andf the city council. do i need to live in hoboken for 20yrs to be concerned about my taxes going up tomorrow? no i do not. your comments are useless. your skewed view of hoboken, like the rest of the bnr’s, is irrelevant. if you small minded people step back and take a look you will notice that you have clearly lost control of the city. the lights are on and the rats are running for cover. no? do you think the tax collector and the zoning board would have been facing attorney’s and have had a stop work order issued 10yrs ago? do you think the chief of HPD would have been forced from the dept 10yrs ago? do you think all the BS roberts pulled with the spending would be front and center in the community 10yrs ago? no, no, no…it’s over, so “forget about it,” and have a nice day.

Many people do have two jobs in the corporate sector. Mr. England should have been able to justify his actions, holding down two positions does not excuse not knowing what was going on. I am as some people like to refer to us as BNR and it escapes my intelligence (yes some of us do have intelligence) how the BA, CFO and the Chairperson of the Finance Committee did not know the actual figures. As for the possibility of rehiring Mr. Lenz, that hadn’t occurred to me, but it does make sense. So isn’t the result the same as the old administration’s plan? 😛

Dickie England is one of the most up men I have ever known,he covered my back many a time. His main fault is his trusting of a bunch of shitbags, it looks like his taking the fall for all of this, I hope and pray the truth comes out and place blame where it belongs right on top of davy roberts. And as far as that picture is concerned dickie never won any beauty contests, it looks like he improved with age.

No one with any honor would enable the Mayor to pull the kind of financial shenanigans Quimby Fatty MacFatass engaged in!!!!

Dick England at best was negligent at worst complicit in financial activities that would get any private sector CFO fired and possibly prosecuted!!!!

Chop!Chop!

“Have any of you even lived in Hoboken for more than 20 years?”

What difference does this make? Do I get a tax break because I’ve been in Hoboken not even half that long? I’m just supposed to turn my money over to incompetent fools and not say anything when my tax bill goes up because the people who are in charge of controlling spending can’t control spending?

I do agree that what people do in their personal time is none of anyone’s business.
