|These are among Carmelo's "campaign expenses..." taxpayers bought his Happy Meal|
When a Pupie falls in the forest and there's no one to hear him did he make a sound?
GA doesn't care who's OUT of the race. It matters who is IN.
Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia wants to replace Jen Giattino on the City Council, and that is a terrifying thought. Garcia is the last person in Hoboken who should be entrusted with public money. Remember Garcia spent $385,000 to replace vinyl flooring in 10 HHA elevator cabs? Remember the 14 incorrectly sized, new "Sandy-proof" generators, that sat in an HHA parking lot for almost 2 years? Remember that FEMA's Hurricane Irene grant to raise HHA generators that silently disappeared in 2011, before Sandy hit (2012)? The list goes on and on...
GA has taken a look at "Garcia for Assembly" ELEC reports, specifically campaign disbursements, which are the expenses paid by the campaign.
Garcia's April 21, 2015 ELEC (when Garcia was replaced on the ticket) shows the Assemblyman blew through hundreds of dollars in taxpayer money at McDonald's, Target, ShopRite, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Exxon Mobil, for NJ Devils tickets, at a newstand (calling it a "meal for campaign meeting"), for numerous "meals for campaign meetings" in local restaurants.
On January 30, 2015, a day Garcia was in Trenton, he charged three "meals for campaign meetings:" 2 in Hoboken (Delfino's, Grimaldi's) and 1 in Trenton.
|Hungry Carmelo. Taxpayer-subsidized dining at 3 restaurants in two cities in one day.|
Questionable expenditures pop up on other ELECs. On October 1, 2014 Garcia gave a $300 "contribution to non-profit organization," RSK Academy. Rising Sun Karate Acadamy is not a non-profit. The "check no." is left blank.
One can only imagine what the unreported expenditures have been since.
6th Ward candidate Carmelo Garcia's utmost contempt for Hoboken taxpayer is evident; taxpayers have ALREADY PAID the $150,000 deductible to defend his moronic "ethnic cleansing" complaints against Mayor Zimmer, her husband, and other public officials.
We need folks to volunteer for the Jen Giattino campaign, to ensure Hoboken residents are protected from the likes of Mr. Garcia.
Please, make sure your friends and neighbors are registered to vote and on November 3, please...
VOTE JEN GIATTINO
