The endgame is upon them
with two weeks to go in the Hoboken mayor’s race
“At least one insider poll leaked two months ago showed 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason ahead in the mayor’s race, and if chalking up the largest number of attacks from two opposing sides signals what kind of a threat she poses, Mason tonight appeared to reconfirm her position as the frontrunner.
Peter Cammarano and Dawn Zimmer both tried to take chunks out of Mason as they suggested she has compromised her reformer brand by constructing a ticket blessed by both state Sen. Brian P. Stack (D-Union City) and 3rd Ward Councilman Michael Russo.
Mason defended her blended ticket experiment as a kind of rainbow coalition, which Zimmer in particular, trying to carry the real reformer banner, couldn’t abide without flashing an incredulous grin.
Cammarano ‘s people don’t worry about the Kids First victory, which infused Zimmer’s campaign with some headlines last week and gave her a bounce coming into tonight’s debate, making her look like something bigger than she is, the councilman maintains.

Tonight at 7:30pm at Our Lady of Grace Church (5th & Willow).
A couple new ways to watch last week’s council candidates forum at OLG.
- It’s now on Cablevision Channel 78 – in rotation with the previous council meeting, or…
- People for Open Government has sliced and diced (or “slap chopped”) the entire forum into easy to manage bite sized pieces. By question, by candidate, etc. (good work!)
