Was Garcia really "in the bathroom?"

TRUE or FALSE?

As a 6th Ward resident, the honesty of my Council representative matters most.

So when a GA reader sent me a  Hudson Reporter article, about offensive statements made by Mr. Garcia's then-Assembly aide at an April 10, 2014 HHA meeting, this caught my eye:

Click article to enlarge
"Reached by phone late Wednesday night, Garcia said that he was in the bathroom when Waiters made the comments about Jewish people and that he could not fire her over comments he did not bear witness to."

Was that TRUE?   

Was Assembyman Carmelo Garcia really doing a "Numero Uno" or "Numero Dos" when his $10,000 a year Assembly-aide went off on the Jewish people?

GA went back to the transcript of the April 10, 2014 HHA meeting.

On page 131, Ms. Waiters is called to speak.

page 131- April 10, 2014 HHA meeting transcript

On page 133, Executive Director Garcia leaves, saying, "I will be right back. Please wait."   The recess, until Garcia returns, is recorded as  lasting "two minutes."




On page 138,  Ms. Waiters begins her tirade about Jews after Director Garcia has returned to the meeting (from the bathroom?)



On page 187, Carmelo Garcia's then-Assembly aide speaks for a second time, again ranting about Jews in the presence of her boss, Carmelo Garcia. 


Based on EVIDENCE, Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia was PRESENT during his Assembly aide's tirade(s) about the Jewish people.   

And said, and DID nothing.

  1. Carmelo Garcia caught in another lie. Say it isn't so Carmelo who was sitting right there all along as his anti-Semitic crew were hoopin and hollering enjoying every last word of it.

    Of course Mayor Zimmer hires only Jewish people. Everyone's converted on day one at City Hall including the former Finance Dept. guy who was African American. What a joke Carmelo's spokespeople are!

    They are an utte disgrace and Carmelo and his ticket of Old Guard crooks need to be shown the door by Hoboken voters in November.

    Enough is enough.

  2. If memory serves, Carmelo Garcia's Assembly staffer Christopher Campos was said to have wrote an apology letter for Carmelo Garcia's staffer Patricia Waiters anti-Semitic remarks and it was published in the Hoboken Reporter. Subsequently Ms. Waiters denounced the letter Mr. Campos wrote and said she stood by her original comments.

    Patricia Waiters was soon no longer part of Assemblyman Garcia's staff.

    Shortly after that Assemblyman Garcia presented a Jewish woman in Hoboken with some sort of proclamation.

    Many thought the it was done as face saving move precipitated by Brian Stack displeasure at notoriety of the anti-Semitic remarks were getting.

    Shortly after that rumors of Stack not wanting Garcia as his candidate for a second term for the Assembly were rampant. At first Carmelo Garcia and his staff vehemently denied the truth of those rumors.

    Brian Stack chose a new candidate for the 33 Assembly seat.

    Lost in all this is what is an assembly aid doing fighting Carmelo's battles having nothing to do with the people's assembly business? What else did he have her do on our dime?

  6. Good catch GA.
    I would have given Garcia the benefit of the doubt.

    I know when I watch either the CC or BOE meeting on TV I know it safe to go to the bathroom when Waiters gets up to the microphone and not miss anything important

  7. Carmelo Garcia continues to lie. He is a lying sorry sack of sh*t. They all are such an untrustworthy group of people.

    How do they keep showing up? Do they have no shame?

    Carmelo Garcia ran the HHA into the Ground. His Board of Education record is atrocious mostly showing up late and leaving early. He was basically fired as an assemblyman. The Vision 20/20 dog and pony show was thwarted because of honest, good council people. Hoboken dodged that bullet.

    Reuben Ramos is no better. He smiles behind that shit eating grin while spewing nonsense and going along with the master's of evil. As a prior horrible councilman and Assemblyman, Reuben Ramos has already done a huge disSERVICE to the city of Hoboken.

    Hoboken should be rid of these charlatans yet they are like gum on a shoe.

    GO. AWAY.

    1. They won't go away until they no longer can get a paycheck for their bull sh*t.
      If the reformers get a super majority or better it will go a long way to scraping the gum of Hoboken's shoe.

  8. The antisemitic whisper campaign among the "we can we will watch us!" crowd targeting Mayor Zimmer (especially at election time) is real. It takes a loose cannon like Waiters to bring it to a public meeting.

    2. Hey brainiac, real smart telling people he has no chance, juts what new voters need, a reason to apathetic.
      If Garcia gets all of Applied and Church towers out, plus the old italian vote in the 6th, it's not going to be good. Jen needs everyone to make sure reformers and good gov people come out and vote.

      Telling people Carmelo has no shot, is exactly what you dont want people to think, He will get his votes out plus cheating and VBM's. Reform needs to get EVERY taxpayer to vote

    3. NotDoneDealFolks, you understand the impact of telling people an election is in the bag. What you missed is that the person that said it wanted that impact.

    4. You know when there's no chance? When the vote's are counted and verfied in the election by the County. Until then, there's A TON OF WORK to be done in this election.

      Not only in the sixth ward for Jen Giattino but across all Hoboken!
      Jeesh! We have some crackpot undermining going on here.

  12. As is abundantly clear, the Ramos/Garcia trolls are out in force, looking to stir the pot. Their obvious taunts -- "Carmelo doesn't have a chance", etc. -- are made in the same way that children taunt each other on the playground: to get a reaction, so they can watch their opponent get upset, run around, yell and scream in protest. It's appropriate to counteract trolls, but it's wasted energy to engage them. They just want attention.

    Reform knows the reality of the situation, and what we need to do to win in November. I'm proud of the people we have running, and look forward to supporting reform candidates both in and outside my ward. Let's do it.

  13. Word is that Ruben Ramos is upset that his reputation is being dragged into the gutter by Carmelo Garcia and his crew. Ramos knows he needs the votes Garcia still can muster in the HHA so he keeps his mouth shut and the rest of the ticket he is running on at a distance.
    Michael and Michele Russo are said to not be happy with Ramos hanging back and not fall into line.

    1. They're not worried here. They are very confident in the fourth ward and they know no one there cares about issues around Hoboken. So whether or not there's Garcia troubles uptown, they know lots of votes for Hruben.

      They are not afraid of Dana Wefer and they want to bash Tim's head in. They talk about that a lot. They were saying Tim was crying and dropping out of the race. They'll come up with more good stuff, watch and see. It's gossip TV down here. They say he'll be the next mayor but of course Carmelo wouldn't want to hear that.

    2. Watch out for Raia, rumor is they are collecting absentees in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th ward and "special messengering" them via mailbox dumps again.
      Heard the results in 2 and 4 might unwrap a stunner.

    4. Reputation?! This is hilarious! His kids play soccer with yuppy families and go to a charter he is involved in, they are friendly to him and his, they would never chose to be otherwise. His last name is Ramos. Same goes for Garcia. Reputation? Hahahahah still laughing. Boys, we aren't voting for you and never were and never will. But thanks for the school and the ice cream. Swak

  15. Despite her inability to utter a coherent sentence, Waiters' anti-semitism comes through loud and clear. A "loose cannon" as she's been previously called, is a useful tool to people like Garcia, who had one to show up at school board meetings too. Mason has hers as well. When you need the crowd to get whipped into a frenzy, when you need the meeting derailed, when you need your loose cannon to say the most disgusting things, that's when they roll them into action and the criminal on the dais (or in the bathroom) can claim their hands are clean.

  16. Carmelo should be and will be toast, Jen just needs to get out there more and introduce herself to the people, rumor has it (around City Hall at least) the Mayor's last minute deal with Raia would have included a last-minute replacement for Jen, that she wanted to bow out, but decided against it. Anyone know if that's true?

      If the HR wasn't bought and paid for by you dispicable group of miscredants the headline would read:

      She is a woman of the people. Highly intelligent, witty, likeable, a community leader and all around winner. The HPD, HFD and city Hall loves her. Admit it, even you love her.

      You all are a washed up group of zeros.
