Well, folks. GA had it right yesterday... the FIXed News hatchet job on the HPU (their discovery that street parking is in short supply and rules are being enforced) arranged by the Harridan of Hudson Street, Beth Mason, will now STAR Mason herself. Tonight- it airs at 10 pm. According to the Jersey Journal:
Mason will also appear on FOX 5 tonight at 10 p.m. in a story alleging that Hoboken is balancing its budget by issuing more parking tickets, according to a TV promotional spot for the news program.Ain't she a piece of work? As far as I know, the City Council is charged with approving the City budget; has Mason EVER made this claim on any of the 4 budgets she's voted for?
"Councilwoman Mason apparently doesn't understand how a municipal budget works," said Sacs when told about the upcoming report, adding: "That is scary since she approved the balanced budget with tax cuts for residents earlier this year."
Councilwoman Beth Mason, a prominent Zimmer detractor, said the signs have always been confusing."The only place" she knows? Um... has this woman ever been to the borough of Manhattan? How many years has she been on the City Council and not a PEEP about the City's signage. Not a word.
"There have been people literally stopping me on the street and saying, 'I don't get this. What does it mean?' That's sad," said Mason, who added that the law - not the signs - need to be fixed.
"Hoboken is the only place I know where you can't move from one area of town, go to another area and visit that area," she said. "In the midst of the holiday season, most towns are giving free parking along their main streets. We're not. We're telling people, 'We don't want your business.'"
Well, this tell GA one thing: by declaring herself a critic of the Zimmer administration, she hopes her cries of political victimization will not ring as hollow... when the time comes.
To be continued...
