Post Sandy: Praise for politicians

Which Hoboken official is keeping you in touch after Sandy?

One Hoboken411 reader has some kind words for 4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipinti, who has been sending constituents updates before, during and after Hurricane Sandy:

“I am not sure if you receive these or not but I think some praise should go to Tim Occhipinti for this. He is the only elected official I know of who is going above and beyond to get information to people. In my opinion, he represents what we should expect from our elected officials and the city of Hoboken is lucky to have him.”

OCCHIPINTI UPDATE FOR FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2nd

Power is sporadically begun to turn on in the city of Hoboken. Unfortunately I do not have exact locations at this time.

Here is what I do know:

  • Monroe Street from Observer Highway to 1st Street.
  • 700 1st Street
  • Madison Street from Observer Highway to 1st Street.

THE A&P Food Market ON 6th and CLINTON IS OPEN. If you are coming back to town today please consider bringing a donation of items to help your fellow Hobokenites today.

The city is still in need of non perishable food, bottled water, baby formula, diapers, generators, and containers of gasoline. Supplies can be delivered to Hoboken High School at 8th and Clinton. Also BREAD many families looking for BREAD.

Bring garbage and debris directly to the curb.

Many restaurants are serving food in some capacity along Washington Street.

NJ law says the following on this matter… 46:8-50.

Each new tenant shall be notified prior to the time that occupancy of the rental unit is assumed. For the purposes of this section, “landlord” means any person who rents or leases, for a term of at least one month, commercial space or… Read more »

hans your on the money with your ..analogy..The key is for hundreds of years hoboken has been below sea level and people delt with it…Dont agree with one aspect of your research…The basis of fault lies with the real estate people who may advise owners of crime areas aka safe areas but do they in fact advise the west siders of the tides and other disasters? Greed is ugly…Hoboken was is a flood zone since the dutch ad germans first settled here..What a price to pay for a view of the nyc skyline and access to the other side of… Read more »

A legal question—This has been very difficult for all. Where is the accountabilty of landlords who never legally disclosed that flooding had indeed occured previously?
I’ve talked to 6 people now that were basically lied to and lost everything and their landlord says tough luck and no i don’t pay flood insurance. when they obviously do and unfortunately the tenants did not have renter’s insurance…but don’t add insult to injury and blatantly lie to these poor souls.

elky 17 – unless these landlords are named moses there is no way they can stop the surge that hit hoboken..If they are uncaring and just plain dont care to help tennents they are pie holes..Keep in mind the greedy real estate people should be obligated to advise the prospective home owners of the flood dangers on the west side of hoboken that has been situation norm for hundreds of years being below sea level..In staten island people are dumpster diving for food.Mean while obama is in nevada instead of setting up a command post with Christie to work out… Read more »
