|Future Hudson County Director of Health and Human Services?|
Did anyone see this comment on MSV:
Beth Mason is teaming with some healthcare provider to give free health screenings in JERSEY CITY! Yes, a health fair and family planning clinic.Curious, no? GA heard the same thing from a source.
And you may recall that the "Beth Mason Civic League" (yet another iteration of the charity's name) offered free health screenings for Hoboken residents on or about September 22-- coincidentally, a camera crew happened to be there (pure coincidence) to document this charitable act,and coincidentally filmed and posted on HCTV.
Not to digress, but has anyone else noticed how the Mason charity goes under a variety of names?
GA believes tax-exempt charitable organizations are prohibited from using aliases. I recall being told that by a money laundering investigator, and that aliases can sometimes be used as a screen to confuse, distract, obfuscate, provide cover from financial activities, the movement of money, and other activities one doesn't want seen or reported. Of course, GA would never suggest the Masons would use so many iterations of their charity's name for such purposes. Heavens, no.
So what is the legal name of Councilwoman Mason's charity?
The IRS shows the Mason Civic League, Inc. filed 2011 Federal E-Postcard tax form, which can only be used for non-profits with gross receipts of less than $50,000. Funny thing, there is no 2012 on the IRS e-Postcard database, which means for the 2012 tayear, Mason filed the brutal 12-page 990 long form.
Can you imagine what that return looks like?
Part VII, Section A: Officers, Directors, Trustees, Key Employees, and Highest Compensated Employees: (1) Aqua Mole, (2) a large, semi-domesticated baboon, (3) some administrative staff, (4) a father-son video-production crew, (5) a Nazi Truck driver, (6) the guy who didn't hire the Nazi Truck driver *wink*, (7) the husband/wife stalking team of a City Councilwoman's flood-damaged house and (8) assorted 'not-politicalpolitical operatives'...
|Are Nazi Trucks tax-exempt contributions? Ask the Boy Scout.|
The Mason Civic League Tax ID (EIN) is 273134429. Wouldn't you love to see a copy of their 2012 federal return?
But I digress... what I started saying was there is a powerful County position, Director of Health and Human Services OPEN since the Department head, Carol Ann Wilson, was removed last October because of unspecified "complaints".
So, this Mason out-of-the-blue dabbling in free health services- in Hoboken and Jersey City, her desire for an powerful County position, and the vacancy of the Director tells GA that Mason has her eye on that seat.

Carol Ann Wilson, director the Hudson County Department of Health and Human Services, has been placed on administrative leave with pay, county spokesman Jim Kennelly said yesterday. Wilson, 70, was driven to her Hoboken home Wednesday after surrendering her county car and office keys, according to officials."Complaints". Hmmm.
The department head was told she would be placed on leave while a probe into activities within her office were completed. County officials would not provide more information. The investigation was triggered by what sources called complaints about Wilson by county employees. Kennelly said the issues being investigated do not rise to the level of criminality, but he would not be specific, calling it an administrative matter.
Mason may be burnishing her 'health-services resume' with this foray into free health services. A new Director would be picked by the County Executive, and the Board of Freeholders votes for or against. GA is told the Freeholders usually confirm the County Executive's pick.
In any case, GA will be delighted when Mason is gone from Hoboken civic life.
But does she have the skills, experience and competence to take such a huge job?
If she did get that appointment, how ironic; the one individual who worked harder than anyone else to kill the sale of Hoboken's only hospital, should become Hudson County Director of Health and Human Services.
It could happen.
