HOBOKEN -- Councilman Michael Russo sent this to the council and mayor today in light of the news brief below:
I would hope that you, the Mayor, will consider eliminating the position of Finance Director and allow your new Business Administrator to take on these duties.
By doing this we will save the taxpayers of Hoboken a significant amount of money, (Salary, pension cost and health benefits) while maintain the same service.
We need to reduce the size of Government when we have the opportunity to do so, and maintain the exact services provided.
In my humble opinion we do not need both directors.
Thank you for your consideration on this matter. I am anxiously awaiting your response.
