Cammarano talks about Facebook

1/31/2009:

Do you avoid politicians on Facebook?

In a recent NY Times article – “When Friends Aren’t Really Friends” – they discussed the pro’s and con’s of using Facebook – and how many people are using this service as a marketing tool.

One of Hoboken’s three council members at-large, Peter Cammarano was referenced.

“Councilman Peter Cammarano of Hoboken, N.J., uses his personal page to join Facebook groups like Hoboken Young Professionals or Hoboken Lawyers Alliance. Once in, he posts notes on the group’s bulletin board alerting members to fund-raisers. He says it’s far more productive to find potential supporters that way than standing outside a ShopRite handing out fliers, where he does not know if the people he approaches even live in Hoboken.”

I will cop to not being up on the Hoboken Mayoral race. I’m starting to see the politicians offices appearing on Washington. They can try to sell me however they want but you can be damn sure my opinion will be shaped by the folks on H411. That being said who seems to be the best choice so far?

Is there a link or thread on 411?

Well – I think she is a city worker so if she were to blame Roberts, wouldn’t she also be acknowleding that she was a beneficiary of the overspending? No city worker wants to admit to that b/c it also means they are admitting they are part of the problem.[/quote]
I believe she signed one of her posts with her last name. Someone I know knows her and yes, she’s a city employee. I won’t say what she does though.

Margaret, if you believe that the 47% tax increase could have been avoided, please share with us where all the money needed to pay the city’s bills would have come from if not from a tax increase! It is well understood by anybody who is even marginally financially savvy that the real expenses of the city were not reflected in Roberts’ proposed budget, and voting for it would have just pushed the bills further into the future. No matter how many times Roberts and Cammarano claim otherwise, they are misrepresenting the real facts. Only gullible people like you, Margaret, fall for gimmicks like that.[/quote]
