Hoboken Housing Authority appoints new counsel, introduces deputy ED


The Hoboken Housing Authority Board of Commissioners approved Secaucus law firm Fitzpatrick & Waterman as new general counsel and also introduced their new Deputy Executive Director, Ravon Anderson, at last night’s meeting.


The HHA board unanimously approved a one-year, $50,000 contract for Fitzpatrick & Waterman, of Secaucus, replacing Charles Daglian – who was working for the agency without a contract for roughly a year.

Interim Executive Director Robert DiVincent told Hudson County View that the contract is pending approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, better known as HUD, and he expects the new counsel to be serving the HHA by April 1.

Additionally, Anderson, who grew up in the Hoboken Housing Authority, told the crowd on hand it felt great to come home.

Anderson, who was hired by DiVincent on February 1 at a salary of $55,000 a year, elaborated on his new opportunity when speaking one-on-one with Hudson County View.

Anderson added that he previously worked with the HHA as the modernization coordinator from about 2005 until 2009, on top of working as a building inspector for the state of New Jersey’s Rehabilitation, Recovery, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) program.

HHA Chairwoman Dana Wefer announced in December that the authority would be seeking a deputy executive director in 2015.

  1. Some facts to look into Carmelo wasn’t perfect but Ravon is the same guy who was choosing the contractor for the HHA and also making them pay for lunch,dinner and in one case do work on his home that he just brought. Funny how his HHA File is empty. How can that be? I guess if anyone wants to opra his HHA file its empty but I’m pretty sure Joe Garica’s file its empty.. I’m sure joe has a file on way ravon was fired. Hey maybe bob Di vincent gets to run the HHA a litte longer ( side deal from mayor working with gene Dayton and Dana Weefer . Oh Ravon is needed for Diana’s Black vote in the 4th word that’s way gene Dayton wanted ravon appointed( now what does ravon owe gene) that’s way Dana said a deputy was needed. Why wasn’t the deputy job posted so people can apply I guess cause is was an inside job..
