What’s up with Ch. 78?

Hoboken lost city footageWhat’s the deal with this?

Attention Hoboken Residents
Due to unfortunate circumstances and technical difficulties beyond our control, the July 1 st , 2007 City Council reorganization meeting will not be broadcasted on Channel 78. We again apologize for this inconvenience. –HTV78

My questions are:

  • What could be beyond their control? Alien abduction? Giant collision with Magnet Truck? They got held up at gunpoint?
  • Why haven’t they contacted the other people that video-taped the proceedings so they could share the tape?
  • Is this because the new council members who were elected got MAJOR applause?
  • Can we get a better explanation other than “beyond our control”? What happened?

What do you think the real deal is?

One funny comment that occurred during the swearing in. When the new councilpersons were getting sworn in their families would join them, including kids.

It was clear indication of the increased number of families with kids in this town, and someone says “hey mayor were going to need to build some more parks” which received big laughs, also causing some discomfort for Roberts.

I’ve got an idea – let’s hire that video truck Campos used and run the meeting on a loop throughout town. Just because City Hall “can’t” show it (regrettably I’m sure) doesn’t mean it can’t be shown.

I wonder what the state policy is on not broadcasting or making the video available to the public. For the City to simply say, “Can’t show it. Sorry!” is unacceptable. Who at the State needs to hear about this? We can also find out through asking Channel 78. In other words, how can we empower ourselves to get our needs met and to hold those in office accountable for their responsibilites.

The city did record the meeting. Patrick’s assistant(?) wearing the black and gray striped shirt can be seen on the other side of the room when the camera is directed toward a public speaker.[/quote]

ok, so if the city did record it, why wont they put it up?
did the assistant screw up and record rocky & Bullwinkle over the meeting?
& honestly, if the city needs an “AV guy”, FFS I’ll do it just so they dont have any excuses anymore!
