|Hey, how'd that mole get in there?|
Well folks, it was bound to happen.
Someone with contacts at Tim Occhpinti's former workplace was bound to come forward and end the speculation following Thursday's startling news: the candidate quit his job to campaign full-time!
You see, no one I know 'bought' his campaign's press release. Surely, an idiot of that magnitude could not possibly walk the Earth... a chap with the odds of a snowball's survival in Hades quitting his full-time, salaried gig with bennies to wait on an employment line come November.
No one believed even Tim Occhipinti could be that reckless, that irresponsible. After all, he's a man with a mortgage and a canine to feed. Everyone, including GA thought there was something more to this story.
Well, naysayers and neigh-sayers, we were wrong!
GA got this from a reader whom I know personally:
I know for a fact that Tim did resign with a two week notice period. If he had been kicked out of AB, he would have been escorted directly to the door in less than a second. I have a friend who is very high up and confirmed this information.Well okay then, as a dear friend used to say. Timmy wasn't bullshitting! The numb-nuts did resign his job!
Oh my, this puts a whole new spin on 'things'.
Now the article in this week's Hoboken Reporter about all the untapped 20's and 30's in town makes perfect sense. Did you read it?
My guess is someone in Camp Tim, probably that oily fish, pitched Dean DeChiaro that story line. In which case, Tim's buddy 'People Please' really DID tip Tim's hand on their strategy: aggressively purse the young, affluent, low-information crowd that haunt bars, clubs and cafes and register 1,000 of them in the weeks ahead.
|'One Hoboken's first ELEC filing|
Well, that's an interesting game plan.
But why did he need to quit his job? Because he's targeting young working folks who populate Washington Street bars and club evenings, after-hours, weekends....
We'll see how it goes!
In the meantime, wrap your head around the knowledge that Tim gave up his career for a shot at Zimmer's job.
There has to be a parachute somewhere.
In the meantime, One Hoboken has issued it's first ELEC filing, a D-1.
One point of note, several years ago the Treasurer of One Hoboken made the news for fleeing the scene of an accident- he was drunk-driving.
One headline read :
Charge Fed Reserve cop with DUI, fleeing scene of Hoboken crash
