Will the real Freeholder Romano Chief of Staff please stand up?
That's easy, it's Marelyn Rivera, a successful event planner/entrepreneur. Rivera is CEO of her own business, an accomplished, professional woman who is active in Hudson County Democratic politics.
She lists her official position as Chief of Staff to Freeholder Romano on LinkedIn:
Unless GA is mistaken, Rivera was swapped for Carmelo Garcia when no one was looking.
Remember, Garcia's contract as Executive Director of the Hoboken Housing Authority was terminated in August 2014; 2 months later Marelyn Rivera came on board as Romano's Chief of Staff. I couldn't help but notice she is a natural beauty.

If Rivera is Freeholder Romano's Chief of Staff (she is) then how can Joseph Branco be Romano's Chief of Staff, like he told witnesses on the Chamber train to D.C.?
I have no idea! Let me ask my fortune-teller.
"Gypsy, what do you see in your crystal ball?"
A reader sent GA the following screenshots and note:
Joe is pretending to be the host of Sticks event tonight! Its Marelyn, not Joe.
