HUDSON COUNTY -- As noted below on hudsonreporter.com, some members of the Hudson County Board of Freeholders have grave concerns over the proposed appointment of volunteer deputy sheriffs, who are part of a plan to supplement patrols in the parks and other county-governed properties. The freeholders plan to bring their concerns up at a meeting on Thursday night. They are particularly concerned because the volunteers will be armed.
Among the applicants for the spots is Hoboken resident Albert "Albie" Manzo, who moved to Hoboken last November and is one of the stars of Bravo television's "Real Housewives of New Jersey."
Manzo was forced to drop out of law school two years ago due to low grades. He and his mother have said on the show that he has a learning disability. Apparently, he is interested in getting involved in another branch of law enforcement.
Manzo is apparently NOT said to be among the applicants who failed an initial psychological evaluation - one of the matters that has the freeholders concerned (see prior item below).
