Earwitness News: You Can't Make Me, Nyah Nyah Nyah


Hot off the ear drum, this Earwitness News report arrived today as we learned that a Superior Court judge has ordered  all 8 members of Newark's City Council to attend a vote to fill a vacant seat.

Sound familiar?

It is.  The Newark ruling bodes well for the reappointment of Hoboken Councilman Jim Doyle, because it sets a precedent that favors a court mandate for all Hoboken Council members  to attend the vote to fill Carol Marsh's seat. With Doyle.

According to an Earwitness, here was Beth Mason's comment to a high-level official about such an  order from the judiciary:
"No one can make me vote!"
The official, who has state-wide connections, replied (something like) "We'll see about that when the state police show up at your house and drag you to City Hall!"

Woo-hoo.

Further, my Earwitness earwitnessed complaints that" Mason and Michelle(Russo) are calling the shots" on the Doyle litigation.  Another complaint earwitnessed:  "The citizens of Hoboken don't want this fight.  We don't need this... after a major disaster. "

GA's been hearing that, too from other sources.  With my own two ears.

Well, isn't this interesting?

We have an elected official who plays the courts like a violin but  holds herself above their judgment, accountable to no one.  

Can you imagine a petulant Mason being hauled into City Hall in the back of a police car?   According to the official, it can and will happen if Mason refuses to obey the court order.
