Hoboken Councilman Mello sets bad example

At the Hoboken City Council meeting last week, Councilman at-large, school teacher, and non-practicing attorney Dave Mello totally lost control. During a recess, Mello assaulted and berated 4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipinti.

Even after Occhipinti calmly left Council Chambers, Mello continued hurling vile obscenities until the police were forced to intervene.

Mello’s actions set a bad example for his students. Is this how he would advise teenagers to handle a disagreement? Perhaps he should be sent to detention to “mellow out!” Knowing how our health industry works, he’d probably get prescribed some pills as well.
