Pool for you and you and YOU!
A reader posted a link to this August 11, 2014 article on nj.com online:
A sign posted at the entrance to the Firefighters' Memorial Pool in Union City says "adult residents" of the city can bring up to five guests -- one adult and four children.Thank you, Brian Stack!
The same sign says "adult non-residents" cannot bring any guests.
Those rules, if enforced, are in violation of state regulations, since $600,000 in Green Acres funding was used to build the $6 million pool that opened in 2009. When Green Acres funds are used for a project, a municipality cannot bar non-residents, state officials said.
Union City Mayor Brian Stack, who is also a state senator, said that no one is denied access to the popular pool, located at Ninth Street and Palisade Avenue. The pool is free.
"We always let Hudson County residents in," said Stack, who did not say why the signs are posted.

Hoboken friends, did you get State Senator Brian Stack's latest personal greeting card?
I'll share mine:
What? And on the inside:

Surely this was a joke since last year, our friend/amigo and neighbor Brian Stack graciously opened his lovely pool to Hoboken residents (with ID), and gave us "Non-resident" passes.
Could it be true Stack shit-canned Hoboken in two languages? GA called Union City Hall.
Gasp! It IS true!
Hoboken consiguió mierda enlatada!
|Hoboken NOT welcome|
Oh, no! Why Brian, WHY?
What did we do to piss you off?
Was it our Mayor dropping the dime on your pal, Christie? Was it only to woo us for the upcoming election?
It wasn't like Hoboken residents swarmed your pool- not the handful of times I was there. So, what turned you all mean all of a sudden?
I still like you. Even if the other 49,999 Hoboken residents aren't speaking to you. I will. So how about reconsidering?
We are NEIGHBORS, right? This should not be about politics, it's about heat and children. Please reconsider!
