City Council – 11/24/2008
A couple points – the council voted 9-0 for the ordinance to “exceed the Municipal Budget appropriation limits and to establish a cap bank.”
And in a surprise outcome – voted 5-4 NOT to renew Angel Alicea’s Housing Board seat, instead awarding it to newcomer Hector Claveria. (read more about what brought that on here.)
The five that voted for Claveria were Terry Castellano, Peter Cunningham, Beth Mason, Michael Russo, and Dawn Zimmer. The four that were in favor of keeping Alicea were Peter Cammerano, Nino Giacchi, Terry LaBruno and Ruben Ramos.
While the vibe wasn’t necessarily “negative” towards Alicea, the majority invested their vote in “change” and the “financial expertise” that Claveria brings to the table.

The NJ League of Municipalities Convention in Atlantic City last week caused the postponement of the Hoboken City Council Meeting for TONIGHT.
