STEVE KALAFER and JOE FORGIONE WANT TO BUY A POST OFFICE!
Mayor DeLuca introduced a new ordinance this week that would clear the way for Steve and Joe to buy the Post Office site on November 16, 2015. Steve and Joe would be new neighbors before Thanksgiving! And that’s without worrying about Planning Board approval, or sewer repairs, or anything else, really. They just get to own it. It’s theirs. See the smiles?
Steve and Joe are both local–from New Jersey!
Steve owns the Somerset Patriots Minor baseball team, and seventeen car dealerships in Flemington! Read more here.
Joe owns JMF Properties. They build big buildings, in a lot of places. Read more here.
Mayor DeLuca is expediting matters so that Joe can get a capital gain tax break–he sold the PSEG site to Avalon Bays earlier this year. and the profit would be taxable unless he invests it in another property–for example, a post office. It may also be so that no one needs to look at their latest site plan very closely–which was filed last week, and has not been reviewed yet. Or maybe it is because Jerry Ryan and Kathy Levinthal leave office in six weeks–and their flawless “yes” voting on this project might not be forthcoming from Greg Lembrich and Nancy Adams.
No matter what, it sure seems like Vic, Joe and Steve are in a big rush!
WE KNOW, IT SEEMED LIKE EVERYTHING WAS OVER…GREG and NANCY WERE ELECTED, AND THAT DESIGN COMMITTEE SAID EVERYTHING WAS OK. NEWS TODAY IS VIC WANTS TO SELL THIS PROJECT ASAP, BEFORE GREG IS IN OFFICE, SO JOE CAN GET A TAX BREAK! SO MORE NEWS IS COMING…ADD YOUR EMAIL BELOW IF YOU WANT MORE UPDATES. THANKS!
