Happy Birthday Auto 5-digit!

10/20/2008 UPDATE:

Correction: I found out that Mayor Roberts pays for these letters himself.

However, I think it should be clearly stated that it’s NOT paid for by city funds… especially in these bleak economic times!!

10/20/2008:

As some of you might have known, yesterday was my birthday… I didn’t celebrate it really – but it was the one day a year I can say… “It’s my birthday” and really mean it.

So what would a day in my life be without connecting it somehow with Hoboken411? (That would be the day I win the lottery).

Anyway, I received “birthday notices” from Mayor David Roberts and Councilman Michael Russo last week.

The letter I got from Roberts, seems to have been paid for with YOUR taxpayer dollars… and they used a bulk mail system! (Hence the title “Auto 5-digit!”)

See the lettter, as well as Russo’s card after the jump!

(Happy Birthday Hoboken411 – continued…)

Here’s the letter I received from David. Just like John McCain, he’s “MY FRIEND!”

Russo – on the other hand – sent a simple card (NOT paid for by taxpayers) and a manual sticker was applied – rather than being printed directly on the envelope.

Thanks Michael (and the city taxpayers!)

There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is Reggie Hammond.

[quote comment=”112873″]FYI – I updated the post. It seems as if Roberts pays for this himself.

It should clearly state that on the letter.

Boy – that was a buzzkill… Now I feel bad for ripping such a nice gesture… :([/quote]

No feeling bad. It’s weird to get a birthday card from someone I’ve never had a conversation with in my entire life.
