More calls for Cammarano’s resignation

The list of people calling for Cammarano’s immediate resignation grows by the minute. I wonder what his wife thinks?

Hoboken Democratic Committee

ruben-ramos-hobokenRuben Ramos, Chairman of the Hoboken Democratic Party sent this release out earlier:

“By unanimous vote the Executive Committee of the Hoboken Democratic Party calls on Mayor Peter Cammarano to resign for the good of the Democratic Party, and the good of the people of Hoboken whom Mayor Cammarano has sworn to serve.

A Special Meeting of the Hoboken Democratic Party will be held on Monday, Aug. 10, 2009 at 8 p.m. at Willie McBride’s, 616 Grand Street, for the sole purpose of adopting a formal resolution calling for the immediate resignation of Mayor Peter Cammarano. If Mayor Cammarano resigns before Aug. 10, 2009 at 8 p.m., this meeting will be cancelled.

Chairman Ruben Ramos, First Vice Chair Ann Graham, Second Vice Chair Phil Cohen, Third Vice Chair John Castellano, Treasurer Gary Holtzman, Recording Secretary George Ortiz, Corresponding Secretary Theresa Burns, Sergeant at Arms Brian Assadourian”

Beth Mason on Fox News NY

2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason once again shared the same sentiment on a video interview on Fox News as well:

I wonder how long Cammarano will hold out?

7/27/2009:

Not to associate themselves with troubled Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano – more Transition Team members drop off…

Novak, Occhipinti resign from team

novak-headshotMike Novak signed on to Peter’s campaign early and brought many young and middle aged professionals on board when he joined the ticket. He was a hard worker even when he didn’t make the runoff cut (in contrast to the often MIA Frances Rhodes-Kearns, who brought little to the campaign.) Much like the similar call from former Hoboken Democratic Chairman Jeff Barnes, this announcement will reverberate much more than those from people who were opposed to Cammarano all along.

“I don’t believe that the Mayor can effectively govern the City, and I don’t believe this transition team has a role to play any longer. Accordingly, I am resigning from the Transition Team, effective immediately. I also beleive that the best thing that Peter Cammarano can do for the City of Hoboken is to resign the Office of Mayor immediately.

Despite this unfortunate ending, it has been a great experience working with you all and I look forward to working together in the future. I will reach out to you once things settle down to discuss what we can do.”
– Mike Novak

Additionally – a similar notice from Timothy Occhipinti, who ran as an independent:

tim-occhipinti-headshot“The events that unfolded last Thursday were both stunning and unsettling to the thousands of supporters that voted for Peter Cammarano during the mayoral election. As an independent council candidate who endorsed Cammarano, it is especially difficult. As I stated during my campaign, I believe our elected officials should stand for honesty, integrity, and character and it is time we hold them accountable for their actions.

Effective immediately I am resigning my position as a subcommittee chairman on the Mayor’s Transition Team. I can not in good faith support Mayor Cammarano’s decision to remain in office. The public trust entrusted to him as our mayor has been shattered.

I can not foresee how Mayor Cammarano can effectively carry out the duties and responsibilities required to fulfill the office of mayor at this time. I respectfully ask for the benefit of the residents of Hoboken that Mayor Cammarano resign. We need to move this city forward and work together to resolve the issues at hand.”

– Timothy Occhipinti

that’s actually a good idea. sort of a “taking over” of the city by the citizens.

the only problem with this whole hoboken revolt group stamping their name on things is that they had a previous agenda, and, putting aside one’s feelings on that agenda, i think that makes people question whether their motives in removing cammarano from office are the correct ones – which should solely be because he violated the public trust. so framing this in light of taxes in any way, shape, or form and mentioning the group..is a very bad idea.

Yes, but time to move to the next level. By staying grassroots we stay clean and above the fray of one individual’s political objectives.

And it needs to remain that way. Now we are working to take a look to move through a vehicle that is not tainted or can be corrupted by such. And there is no other grass roots organization to move to the next level.

We’re going. Next stop 500-1000 folks. A real stampede.
