City Council Meeting: 6/1/2011

Hoboken Council Meeting of June 1, 2011

See video archives after the break.

However, there are some dubious notes to share. As of 9pm last night, the council AGENDA and RESOLUTIONS were not available online for the public to view. The city claimed the reason was because “city hall had no internet.” Hmm, they’re using a WordPress publishing system, that allows you to access it anywhere you have internet. Your home, the coffee shop, even on your phone! This lame excuse means that the city doesn’t care about keeping the public informed, and the meeting should be pushed back a day or two.

Additionally – some peculiar nonsense about the Democratic Committee people and election ballots – how it appears that some folks are nervous that Ravi Bhalla may be knocked from his perch, and are doing everything possible to manipulate the process by keeping certain candidates off the ballots. See this document for “insider politics” trickery supposedly taking place downtown.

Enjoy the show!

Wouldn’t Hoboken’s Director of Health & Human Services have capability to assist Hoboken Residents such as the person Patricia Waiters brought to the council meeting this week? Might be less Traumatic for the person who tried for almost a year to get direction / assistance, to speak with someone 1 on 1 rather than in front of the entire City Council & in a Public forum. Can’t help wonder why this unfortunate was Not given correct direction or assistance by someone in the current administration?

Were National security letters sent out? Those are the only Federal orders that prevent those contacted from revealing what the FBI has been seeking or even the existence of the gag orders.

Twitter recently challenged FBI secrecy requests and won the right to inform the people whose records the government was seeking.

So those that think they are SECRETLY being investigated should call a lawyer and challenge the FBI.

There is always fleeing to Israel too.

They Gov “requests” you maintain secrecy, and if the party to whom the subpoena was served was another Gov entity (i.e. municipal), then under Rule 6(e)(3)(A)(ii) that entity would also bear the Gov’s duty to maintain secrecy.

At least that how is how it worked on Matlock.[quote comment=”207405″]Were National security letters sent out?

Why the secrecy regarding the FBI investigation? Who are the targets? Did the FBI issue any subpoenas? Are current council representatives or township employees associated with the investigation? Shouldn’t Hoboken residents be informed if such representatives or employees are associated with any FBI investigation? Did Mayor Zimmer request the FBI’s assistant after or before their second visit. How long will Hoboken be kept in the dark?

Wow, what a bunch of bufoons……They were correct when they said that this is why every other town laughs at Hoboken and it’s city operations….embarrassing.
