Shell-shocked Hoboken sourcespointed to Mayor Peter Cammarano's statement from last week regarding Hoboken Housing Authority Commissioner Hector Claveria, who was arrested for taking bribes.
"These are serious allegations which are currently proceeding through the judicial system," Cammarano said.
"This Administration has a clear-cut, zero tolerance policy against any violation of the public trust and I am calling for Housing Authority Commissioner Claveria to resign his position with the Hoboken Housing Authority immediately. Should he refuse to resign, I am demanding that the City Council President immediately begin proceedings for his removal pursuant to New Jersey State statute 40A:12A-17."
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Cammarano was arrested this morning in connection with a money laundering scheme.
