More calls for Cammarano’s resignation!
The list of residents and city officials calling for the immediate resignation of Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano grows longer by the hour!
This group of Canine residents assembled at the dog park nearest to Cammarano’s home recently, growling for him to step down from the office of Mayor!
Buster, the spokesdog for the “Black Labs for Transparency in Hoboken Coalition” said: “We’ve had it up to our collars with this man! Three weeks into office, and our dreams are shattered. We once hoped for more open space to romp around and play in – and we learn this guy will just build Hoboken up until it sinks! Phooey!”
Exhausted from hours of barking “Woof, Howl, Woof, Howl – Cammarano sure is Foul!” yellow Lab Sparky is urging all Canine’s in Hoboken to “send a message” to the tree in front of his property. “I don’t care if you turn blue holding it in for blocks – save up and deliver a long and strong message straight to Mr. Cammarano!!” he said.
The Canine community is planning daily protests at all Hoboken dog runs. So be on the lookout!
Oscar demands resignation too
Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar has wanted to publicly express his dissatisfaction with Cammarano since the news broke, but has had computer difficulties.
“I’m not sure if it’s the size of my paws, or this clunky old laptop – but I fully support the Canine community’s call for Cammarano to resign,” he said. Later adding “I agree that the community should stick together and be relentless with their message. However, I get a bit freaked out with large mobs of protesters. Can’t they just park a van in front of City Hall with a message that repeats over and over? Where’s Frank Orsini’s obnoxious speaker truck when you need it?”
Doggie Mayoral Candidate & owner jump on board
Additionally, Doggie Mayoral Candidate Patrick Melberg also expressed his outrage:
“I’m Patrick Melberg and you may know me from my recent campaign to become doggy Mayor of Hoboken. I concur with the sentiments of my canine colleagues that Mayor Cammarano must resign, and so does my owner Ryn Melberg, who issued the following statement from sunny Florida today:”
“In June I was named with about another 30 people as part of the Cammarano transition team. I have been on vacation in Florida with my family since then.
In light of recent developments, I feel that I must resign from the transition team.
I also request that Mayor Cammarano and the other indicted elected and appointed officials resign. I agree with Mayor Cammarano’s July 23rd, 2009, statement that Hoboken’s “Administration has a clear-cut, zero tolerance policy” and that it needs to be applied equally and fairly to all. It is my belief that results of last week’s indictment have and will continue to impede his ability to govern and his administration’s ability to run our dear city. In the event that one or more of the indicted officials is cleared, then I look forward to working with them again in service to our community.
Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey and our nation are facing significant challenges with the economy, the property tax crisis, and increasing crime. We need the opportunity to relegate the question of the indictments to the courts so that the very talented and dedicated people of Hoboken can focus on the imminent issues at hand.”
See more calls for resignation (including Carol Marsh) after the jump!
(More calls for Cammarano resignation, continued…)
Carol Marsh finally joins the crowd
Hoboken411 received this press release from Carol Marsh right as I was about to “go to press” with this breaking story.
In her press release, she claims she made her first call last week – does anyone know the place she called? Please comment if you do.
MARSH CALLS ON CAMMARANO TO RESIGN TODAY
Hoboken City Councilwoman Carol Marsh called on Peter Cammarano to join Mayor Richard Elwell of Secaucus and resign today. Marsh said, “I believe that Mr. Cammarano has lost the public trust and hope that he recognizes the best interests of the residents of Hoboken would be served by his stepping aside so that we can move forward with governing the City”
Marsh made her first call for Cammarano to resign last week after reading the complaint against him which spelled out serious charges that go to the heart of the integrity of Hoboken government.
Marsh went on to say, ” I think it is important that the Council formally call on Mr. Cammarano to resign and I am in the process of drafting a resolution to that effect. I understand and share the outrage that is being expressed by the public. My collegues and I are moving forward as quickly as possible while ensuring that the actions we take are legal, appropriate and in the best interests of the City of Hoboken and its residents. ”
Are Hoboken Cats next?
Hoboken411 has heard rumors that a new group called “Felines Fed up with Felons” is about to stage a “Purrrrtest” at some point – but have not yet received confirmation.
More news to come – stay tuned!
