Looks like the savings are about 80 bp currently, this will probably go up when yields come back. I see $16 million in last year's budget which is paid off over future years, so $25 is probably not a bad overall estimate. Given this, it's about $200K a year. And unlike the to be appealed payout to a former public safety director who admitted to turning a blind eye to illegal activity which you are discussing on another thread, this keeps giving, year after year. http://www.rwbaird.com/bolimages/Media/PDF/Insights/Municipal-Bond-Market-Commentary.pdf

So according to Saturday's Jersey Journal, it appears that the Mayor may be replacing Freeholder Romano with someone/anyone who is not a B&R. So much for "one Hoboken". The Mayor should put up or shut up.

If you are referring to Augie's article, then the B&R part is purely your own spin. In any case, birth place is irrelevant to qualification. For someone who reduces so many issues to fiscal irresponsibility, you certainly are giving Romano a free ride considering the taxation without service improvement we continue to see with the county.
