Hoboken Week in Review: 5/9/2010
Hi there, Hoboken!
If you’re reading this now – you’re likely seeing the new look and feel of Hoboken411. There may still be some kinks to work out – and I’ll tell you more about it later this week. For now – you can catch up on some highlights from the last week (a day later than usual…)
What were some of the most noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, May 9, 2010?
- ETHICAL SEIZURES CONTINUE!
Supposed “clean reformer” At-Large Councilman Ravi Bhalla is stumbling with his questionable Pay-to-Play debacle, sending out odd claims of ELEC violations against his political rival. Interestingly, without ever addressing his lucrative insider business deals! What a winner!
- MORE PAVING!
The paving continues – but not without blunderous mishaps that will undoubtedly cost YOU the taxpayer more money. Don’t say I didn’t tell you so!
- JACK BAUER!
Jack wasn’t needed for a car part that was making an odd clicking sound. But both the Jersey City and Hoboken squads were out in full force for this case of “lemming paranoia” in Hoboken. Nothng to see here, please move along…
The Hoboken / Jersey City seal makes a cameo appearance this week!
- COUNCIL GAMES!
You can listen now, or hear more later – but the so-called reformers in City Hall have you brainwashed to the utmost degree. Making backroom deals without public participation? Hello? This is worse than any other administration! Watch for a noisy municipal garage to show up in your neighborhood SOON.
- WHAT PARKS?
A debacle of an unfinished construction project clutters downtown Hoboken… crickets at city hall…
Yep! Another great week of exclusive Hoboken business updates!
- LUNCH TRUCKS!: The big biz news as of late is: LUNCH TRUCKS! TWO new entries are Le Petit Temptation Dessert Truck, which debuted SUNDAY, Stefania’s Pierogi Truck which has been making positive waves, plus Joey’s BBQ gets a truck themselves, but beta tests in Jersey City first!
