City Council Meeting – 9/2/2009
Come back to Hoboken411 at 7pm for the latest installment of the
magic and trickery city council meeting at town hall!
City lunacy back after much needed respite
The Hoboken City Council Meeting is back after a nice summer vacation. As always, if you like torture – head down to City Hall Wednesday, September 2nd at 7pm – or come back here to Hoboken411 to watch the antics and posturing from the comfort of your own space.
Real quick – some items of note are – The useless parking meters on Sinatra Drive may get removed (first reading) – and two spots are up for the Hoboken Housing Authority. See who’s submitted applications after the jump!
See more after the jump…

People lining up for this job – why?
As you might have predicted, a whole slew of candidates have emerged for consideration for one of the two HHA positions. A couple Hoboken411 readers alluded: “Who wouldn’t want this great job? People lining up to bribe you for waiting list positioning!” While a few others believe some (not all) are in it only for political reasons,with zero desire to actually help the Housing Authority.
Here’s a list of who’s in the running:
- Arlette Braxton
- Marianne Camporeale
- Phil Cohen
- Joe Garcia
- Eduardo Gonzalez
- Michael Lenz
- Ryn Melberg
- Timothy Occhipinti
- Robert Phillips
- Rami Pinchevsky
- Jake Stuiver
- Patricia Waiters
- Lynda Ann Walker
The two seats are open because Perry Belfiore’s term ended in May – and Hector Claveria was arrested (and resigned) for allegedly taking bribes.
The Housing Authority Board consists of seven members, and each term lasts five years.
