Beth Mason supports Ines Garcia-Keim

5/29/2008:

Now the third entry in the series on City Council endorsements in the three-way, winner-take-all primary for 5th District Hudson County Freeholder. Last week Hoboken411 offered every City Council member the opportunity to send an endorsement letter of up to 250 words in support of the candidate of their choice. Here is Second Ward councilwoman Beth Mason’s response:

“Dear friends and neighbors,

On Tuesday, June 3rd, you have the opportunity to change Hudson County by voting for Ines Garcia-Keim.

Why is the Hudson County government relevant to you? The County consumes over 1/3 of our tax dollars. It controls funds designated for parks and historic preservation, builds and maintains county roads (including several major arteries through Hoboken, especially in the Second Ward) and is supposed to create and execute a regional development plan. Moreover, the County sets the tone for municipal government in our area. As we have all recently seen, Hoboken’s spending is hidden and out-of-control; the same is even more true for Hudson County.

As an independent voice for Hoboken and Jersey City Heights residents, Ines will work hard to make Hudson County’s government the kind that we deserve. I’ve known Ines and her family for many years. She is a person of character and integrity. Ines has always been an active member of the community, and a fighter for the issues important to all of us, including more open space, safer streets and better parks.

As Freeholder Ines will make sure our taxpayer dollars are not wasted, and that we crack down on fraud and waste in County government. This is an important election in an important year. I urge you to vote for Ines, who will best represent the kind of change we need in Hudson County now.

I know she would be honored to earn your vote.

Beth Mason

Hoboken411 thanks Beth Mason for sharing her endorsement. The Democratic primary vote is next Tuesday. It is open to all democrats and independents who will then be registered as a Democrat.

When it comes to honesty there is no comparison between Ines Garcia-Keim and Pupie Raia.

Raia promised Hoboken a new community center, charter school building, and public parking deck with a public ball field on top in exchange for a lucrative redevelopment contract. That was 9 years ago. What do we have today? Condos, condos, and plans for many more condos.

What does Raia have to show for it? Million$ in his pocket.

Sure, Pupie built the ShopRite (with government loans, by the way, not the out of the kindness of his own heart) but when the city made him richer by giving him the rights to redevelopment the Northwest Zone we got nothing but broken promises.

[quote comment=”85085″]Is there any evidence that Pupie or Stick will bring the money home? Stick has been on the school board, look at that budget.[/quote]

Pupie Raia is also on the school board, and the budget keeps growing. Raia was also against the effort to pass an anti-nepotism policy in the School District. What does THAT tell you?

Ines Garcia-Keim is the only logical choice in this race.

We need more county dollars brought home to Hoboken, not less. This means that we need to elect someone honest, but who can work with the County Executive and the rest of the freeholder board to make sure that Hoboken’s priorities are funded.

Does anybody really think Garcia-Keim is the best person to persuade the real powers in the County to send more money our way?

The money we don’t get will not be saved, It will go to Jersey City.

She seems to mean well, but we need a freeholder who will bring home the bacon. Every dime we get back from the County is found money, and our freeholder’s job is to find it.
