Reader Mail: Thoughts on recent hires
I received an email from Hoboken411 reader Matt over the weekend, who chimed in about Acting Mayor Zimmer’s recent hires, a NY Times article from earlier in the year, and some Dilbert cartoons that seem to hit the nail on the head…
Soccer fields – “reformer back rooms”
“Take a look at Dawn promising jobs as she pretends to play soccer! That is some successful networking!
Three formerly “unemployed and underemployed” people quoted or mentioned in the article end up with 6-figure salaries at Hoboken City Hall in less than six months! I also wonder how, since the Zimmer camp bashed other candidates for the Russo affiliation, how they will spin Leo Pellegrini – who’s closely connected to the Russo’s as well. These are the new bosses, but since they cut deals in the soccer field instead of the smoke-filled room, they are “reformers.”
Think about it! If you owned a large company, who would you let go first? Your worst performing employees, of course! Dilbert sums it up much better:”
Do you think these new hires are qualified and just “victims of the economy,” or just more dead weight at City Hall?
