Back in the day, and once upon a time....
Word on the street alleged that an HHA apartment- providing one or evicting a tenant- was done at the sole discretion of Executive Director Carmelo Garcia.
True or false?
Until Garcia's 'ethnic cleansing' lawsuits opened a Pandora's Box of Secrets (a.k.a. thousands of emails left on HHA servers), there was no objective documentary evidence to support these allegations.
Then Garcia's 'ethnic cleansing' lawsuits pulled back the curtain.
Further, the extent of HHA General Counsel Charles Daglian's cooperation with the will of HHA Executive Director Garcia was heretofore unknown. Ironically, Garcia's civil rights complaint has exposed questionable actions impacting the civil rights of HHA tenants and applicants.
In the words of a melting Witch: "Oh, what a world!"
In this case, Carmelo Garcia has thrown the water on himself to melt under his own hubris.
That is my OPINION.
So, draw your own conclusions from objective documentary evidence, uncovered in Garcia's ethnic cleansing" litigation. What follows are two examples: the first concerns a "foe," the other, a "friend."
EXAMPLE #1 - Garcia's communications re: the tenancy of an HHA resident well-known for criticizing ED Garcia and his redevelopment proposal Vision 20/20.

CAMPOS' AFFIDAVIT FOR HHA APPLICANT
On February 3, 2012: HHA staff receives Campos' Affidavit on behalf of an applicant for HHA Housing. She writes "based on the facts they provided, I don't think they qualify for Hoboken residence preference."
On February 13, 2012: HHA staff notifies Garcia she had received the Campos Affidavit, and the applicant is #1 on the wait list. She asks "should he now get a letter."
On February 15, 2012: Garcia asks Daglian to "provide an opinion that would allow us to accept this certification as proof to offer the applicant an interview for future housing."
On February 15, 2012: Daglian's legal opinion on Campos' Affidavit: "under our requirements a person has to be a resident of Hoboken... in each residency he does not supply any objective documentation to support these claims... he did reside with these people for a couple of months."
Daglian Legal Opinion
In GA's opinion, Daglian wiggles like a belly dancer.
How does Daglian reconcile these two statements: (1) "in each residency he does not supply any objective documentation to support these claims... " with (2) "he did reside with these people for a couple of months."
How does Daglian know where the applicant resided without "any objective documentation?"
Well, the HHA General Counsel did as he was told.
