To bond for $4 mil is another example of the mismanagemnt of this great city. On 9/10 the Local Govt. Finance Board (DCA) will rule on their consent agenda for the supervision of Hoboken. They will announce the sanctions which will probably allow for the budget deficit to be spread over 5 years…one consequence is that this action encourages mismanagement and what stops a repeat performance? Remember, put Hoboken in your hands next year, by voting for change. 💡
