melissa, there are at least two things in your post that you could potentially be sued for. might want to wise up. speaking of lawsuits, how did that bajardi case work out? your friend at hoboken411 has yet to post anything about the verdict and financial judgment against the plaintiffs. why is that? can you ask him and let us know? also, who is the "we" you mention?

your first SHOUTED sentence doesn't even make sense, and your second one is ridiculous. go back to sleep.

For the rest of the Hoboken public, the above poster, Melissa, aka "assilem", is a well-known agitator on behalf of the Russos and Carmelo Garcia. For anyone who doesn’t know, Mike Russo is the still current councilman seen in this video agreeing to take a bribe from an undercover FBI agent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqC5ZBG4MyM Concerning Ms. Wefer, she has done an exemplary job as an unpaid volunteer, spending an entire year asking the right questions and doggedly pursuing the best interests of the HHA residents, ultimately outing massive procurement violations at the Hoboken Housing Authority committed by the former HHA director and soon-to-be-former Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia who is running his own ticket for council this fall. The federal agency overseeing the HHA, HUD, confirmed what Ms. Wefer had been telling the public in a report last year. In addition, Mr. Garcia took campaign contributions from every vendor who was doing procurement-free "emergency" work at the HHA! In the year since Mr. Garcia was tossed to the curb by the HHA's oversight board, the HHA is on track to run a $500k annual surplus, which is quite the turnaround from its $2.5 million annual deficit (on a $17 million budget!) I wonder what could have been responsible for such a giant fiscal hole while Mr. Garcia was in charge…? Last August, Mr. Garcia brought a mob to City Hall to overwhelm the police at City Hall at his termination hearing so that he might keep his second practically-no-show political patronage job by physically intimidating the unpaid volunteer board. While the police were attempting to protect the commissioners from the mob, Mr. Garcia lost no time assaulting a local reporter (on tape): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQfw0qMvfB8&t=1m5s The choice between Mr. Garcia's ticket and Ms. Wefer and the other reformers is stark. The choice is between the old-Hoboken grab-what-you-can-screw-the-public politics of the Russos and the Garcias, and on the other, the good governance Hoboken has enjoyed for a decade, thanks to the tireless efforts of the reform movement.

I say Tim should do the honorable thingfor the community and back out since we know Wefer is beyond corrupt. Tim can come back in Council as we replace Mello and Doyle. Bhalla's conviction can not be delayed forever.
