GA just got this exclusive straight from the desk of Councilman Tim Occhipinti!
Occhipinti's office has been bombarded with demands for some action regarding the recent conduct of an elected official in his ward- Ward 4, District 4: Ground Zero for the VBM harvest that swept him into office in 2010 and 2011! (The Occhipinti campaign is currently under investigation by the NJ Attorney General's office on charges of voter fraud)
Timmy's plan of action is the re-issuing of a revised version of his July 7, 2012 ordinance.
The original ordinance proposed to "establish a code of conduct for municipal employees" and was tabled after being denounced and ridiculed by Corporation Counsel and members of the Council majority. Even his ally on the Council minority, Mike Russo, voted to table.
Not to be discouraged, Councilman Occhipinti will resubmit the ordinance at the next City Council meeting revised to address the conduct of the 4th Ward elected official, Democratic Committeeman Matt Calicchio.
An Occhipinti spokesman told me that the 4th Ward Councilman made these changes himself to avoid additional legal costs.
