Hudson County Corruption in the Kenny Era
Investigation Of The Hudson County Mosquito Extermination Commission
Hudson County Politics
Shortly before the close of 1970, the Commission of Investigation decided to hold public hearings on information uncovered in an investigation of the Hudson County Mosquito Extermination Commission at Jersey City.

Editor's Note:
Hudson County, alas, is peculiarly lacking in mineral resources. Scratch, mine, dig, drill or blast as much as you like, youíll never find even a teaspoon of oil, a single diamond chip, or even a flake of precious metal. But facts and reality only fence in minds of modest mechanism, not the likes of J. V. Kenny, Hudson Countyís political boss from 1949 to 1971. Observing that Hudson County was surrounded and veined by swamps, Kenny set to work turning all that mud into gold.

This task was too great even for the powerful J. V. K. to accomplish alone. C. Harry Callari, a Jersey City Ward leader in the early 1960s, served as apprentice to the master. As luck would have it, Callariís original calling as a manufacturer of womenís clothing was no longer profitable; a new career suited him just fine. Through the sponsorship of John V. Kenny, C. Harry Callari assumed responsibility for the publicís health by becoming executive director of the Hudson County Mosquito Commission Ė one of Kennyís many fiefdoms. The deal was that Callari was to be on the lookout for any and all possible income inducing opportunities. Fifty percent of the take reverted to his lord, Boss Kenny.
