Corzine’s army of cars?

10/7/2008:

I recall doing a story recently that had something to do with this uptown parking lot. In the process – I also snapped this picture of these obvious government vehicles parked in the lot.

We know that NJ Governor Jon Corzine has a fleet of giant SUV’s tagging along with him whenever he buys a banana, cup of coffee or a newspaper – but are these also part of his crew?

Since this post originally came out, I’ve been taking note of the governor’s “fleet.” In the several times I’ve seen his “fleet” in the past week, it’s only been 2 Suburbans, none of these extraneous cars mentioned here. I have not seen the grey Crown Vics at all.

see the piece on corzine and his ethics bill? pretty funny the guy that gave the biggest union leader in nj +$400k to pay off her house, then banged the sh1t out of her while she was married, all the time he’s running for Gov…now that’s some funny sh1t.

Plenty of law enforcement vehicles have negular NJ plates (hell, Hoboken’s building inspector does). I have them on my gov car. The difference being, at leats my guess, is that the Crown Vics are used for either advance agents or shift relief, and not transporting the protectee, aka the guv’nuh…so no need to be lower profile and SG plates are fine. Two black suburbans with government tags, driving in motorcade fashion, screams “VIP” and in order to maintain a slightly lower profile, having regular tags is just one tool. Again, this all guessing on my part, but I spent 2 years doing protection for a federal government agency head, and most details, aside from the President and VP, operate fairly similar.

Corzine in press today describing the plan to help nj towns arrange short-term financing to meet their funding/liquidity needs. btw, i mentioned it here but didn’t get any comments and i didn’t see any threads from H411 on it: you know that hoboken floated a zero coupon issue in the summer to meet some misc needs right? i believe it was $12 million dollars or so, about the emount that roberts had over speant the budget. well, the bonds come due the end of nov i believe. so if the muni market has seized up, and cities and towns of GOOD standing cannot issue any debt, then a city taken over by the state that is in theory bankrupt will find it impossible to issue debt. that means that when those $12mm zeros come due in 60 days the taxpayers of hoboken are going to ave a very big tax bill in their mail boxes. those of you who have the tax bill paid by your mortgage companies will find that you pay, or you default/forclose…and BTW mortgage companies normally adjust your monthly payment to reflect the higher taxes required plus a surplus, for a couple quarters before you can appeal and have the monthly payment reduced. all i can say is WOW. property owners in hoboken are going to face reality in the next 60 days and i do not think it is going to be pretty. i mean, if your mtg payment is now $3500 month it could… Read more »
