Better political minds than I have already begun sifting through the entrails of Tuesday’s election to divine messages and lessons for the future. I wish them well. As for my part, there’s a neglected life here that needs tending so I will be busy catching up with projects and chores while trying to convince my clients that I haven’t left town in a fast car with loose women and trouble in mind. My girlfriend will also be pleased to know this isn’t true. Chief among the things that need tending is expressing my appreciation to all those who signed my petition, or helped, donated, advised, chalked, encouraged, and ultimately voted for my campaign. I am humbled and grateful for your good work and generosity. I’m also proud of what we accomplished. On March 19th, the day petitions were due, I had nothing but ideas, the beginnings of a web site, and sore muscles from collecting signatures. Through conversations with thoughtful people, research, and help from a few very informed sources, I was able to assemble viable solutions for some of Hoboken’s most pressing problems which in turn became the foundation for my campaign. The initial response was so encouraging that getting these ideas out to the voters became the enormous task that would define the following weeks.  To that end I’d like to congratulate the sponsors of the four forums in which I participated. Regardless of size, each campaign was treated with equal respect and I was impressed with the… Read more »

Candidate Profiles, The Missing Copy As an independent candidate for mayor, I was looking forward to being included in the mayoral candidate profiles featured in this week’s Hoboken Reporter. Life, however, is rarely fair. In the piece we were all given three questions to answer with strict limits on length. My profile accidentally got cut by about 25 percent. It happened in the jump from page 23 to 37. The result is that the reader goes from the conclusion of the first answer smack into the middle of the second answer, in a rather non sequitur fashion, without the luxury of an actual second question. Confused? I know I was. While this was obviously an honest mistake, we still have to wait a week to see a correction in print (the online version should be fine), so I’m providing the uncut questions and answers here: Q: Please tell us why you are more qualified than your opponents. A: The tax increase, the state monitor, the budget crisis, all of these are symptoms of a broken, severely out dated system. Right now we need to modernize the entire thing, top to bottom. I have lots of experience doing this very thing and I can do it for less. We also need a complete break with the past. I can provide new perspectives and positive energy. I want to make it rewarding and enjoyable to work for the city so we can attract real talent. I hold no grudges and have no… Read more »

Tom Vincent would make a great Mayor.
He’s smart, honest, and creative — traits that are clearly lacking in our city’s politicians.
Tom did NOT get us into this financial mess but he has the character and expertise to get us out of it.
He really wants to changes things and he brings a fresh approach.

Vote Tom Vincent!!
