HOBOKEN – Former Hoboken Councilman E. Norman Wilson passed away early Wednesday morning.
Wilson, a familiar figure around town, used a wheelchair. For many years, he was the director of HOPES Head Start. He served as a councilperson in the 1990s.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer said, “My thoughts today are with his sister, Carol Ann, his friends, and all of those whose lives he helped improve. I am thankful for his decades of service to our community as a Councilmember, as director of HOPES, and for his role in saving Hoboken University Medical Center as a commissioner of the Hoboken Municipal Hospital Authority.”
