COMMUNITY VOICE: Correction to 7-18-12 article

In the July 18, 2012 edition of The Amboy Guardian the front page had a story headlined “Crackdown on Illegal Housing/conversion”. This story was based on a discussion during the public portion of the July 9, 2012 Caucus Meeting. In the second paragraph appears a sentence in QUOTES attributed to me. So far no problem.

The next sentence, which is not in quotes, reads Silber also questioned the legal responsibilities of landlords if the tenants are not in this country legally. This is very troubling to me because not only did I not say this, I do not believe landlords should have the responsibility or the right to question tenants on their immigration status. Landlords should concern themselves with the legality of the “residence” and not the “resident”.

Because of my interest in government transparency and making as much information as possible available to the Perth Amboy public anyone can go to the Perth Amboy website where you will have to click unto Perth Amboy Schools. Next click on PATV on demand and you can watch the City Council July 9th Caucus Meeting. You can also go to It is possible to go directly to 1:12:50 for my accurate statements but I would appreciate The Amboy Guardian also acknowledging the error with a correction statement.
