Is this a turf war as reported in several papers?
Rudolph had the audacity and hutzpah to build a relationship with the Bergen Democrats, Loretta Weinberg's nemesis. For the last two years Rudolph has been badgered and harassed by many of Weinberg's "friends". Coincidence? Is there any "truth" to the comments that Weinberg hasn't delivered money to Teaneck. There are some that say that Weinberg has no power outside of Teaneck and that is why she is so desperate to keep control of this Council.
For many years our Council has been beholden to Weinberg:
Kates, Katz, Parker, Honis
Rudolph refuses to kiss the ring, so he seems to face the wrath of Weinberg and her supporters. I think I saw a movie about this, called "The Truman Show". The producer would send any obstacle (storms, road closures etc) to Truman so he wouldn't get to see that there is a big world outside the bubble. It seems that Rudolph found hundreds of thousands of dollars in the "outside world" that Weinberg didn't deliver or couldn't deliver and now there will be hell to pay.
So what about the comment that Teaneck is non partisan and we don't want to be under the influence of a party boss? Last I checked Weinberg is a Democrat and some of her big supporters are in significant power positions in Teaneck:
1) Veach, prosecutor
2) Turitz, attorney
3) Ginova, attorney
4) Cramer, former attorney
5) DeCotis (Huttle), attorney
And the list goes on.
So is it hypocrisy, or welcome to Teaneck politics??
