helen, isn't this just the law of supply and demand? demand for hoboken real estate hasRead Moreskyrocketed in the past 10-15 years, so prices (and, subsequently, assessments) go up. that might not be good news for everyone, but it's good for "old-timers" who want to cash out and sell their homes. also, because a reassessment hadn't been done in more than three decades, all those "old-timers" have been paying much lower property taxes than they should have for many years, so they have experienced some upside here. btw, i bought my apartment about 30 years ago, my new assessment is about 3.5x higher than previously but my taxes only went up about $50 per quarter. yes, i wish i didn't have to pay more, but it wasn't an outrageous increase.

Hi Desiree, As a part of Assemblyman Garcia's taxpayer paid staff I will ask you again, how doesRead MoreMr Garcia justify taking a six figure full time salary as Executive Director of the Hoboken Housing Authority and also accept a taxpayer salary, benefits to be an Assemblyman down in Trenton. As I have asked this question many times of you and the other taxpayer paid staff, I can only assume that mr. Garcia can not or refuses to answer the question.

Hi Desiree. Can you also please comment on this weekend's article in the Hoboken Reporter aboutRead MoreMr. Garcia being investigated by HUD regarding irregularities and potential violations of vendor payment laws? Here's the link for you and other Patch readers, with the headline "Feds Are Watching", doesn't sound good: http://hudsonreporter.com/view/full_story/25464067/article-Feds-are-watching--HUD-steps-in-to-review-Housing-Authority-contracts--?instance=hoboken_top_story
