Still floods in Hoboken

4/20/2009:

Reports over the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel indicate that the “usual suspects” of flooding areas in town are acting up once again.

So far, the area near Shoprite at 9th and Madison – as well as 3rd-4th on Jackson are starting become impassable to vehicular traffic. Cops called these in – the city is apparently out of, or “Can’t locate” the wooden barricades – and are using cones instead.

Wasn’t flooding a big hot button topic? Seems status quo to me.

I find the flooding thing to be interesting. It looks like a an effort to draw attention to an issue that is a non issue. To those who says she did nothing, perhaps they should post what what she should have done. If the people in her ward or reading this are dumb enough to actually think a single council person could do anything about the issue they should have their right to vote taken away. Folks, can’t you come up with a real issue. I am going to vote indy. All three of the “big” players are clearly full… Read more »

You are making sense to me for sure![/quote] one of the most frustrating things to me over the past decade was many politicians being criticized when they change their minds. some had certain philosophies as senators that they didn’t carry into presidential campaigns – well – maybe that’s because instead of representing people from 1 state you’re campaigning to represent people from 50 of them? same thing with councilpersons vs mayor – you’re looking to represent different views.… Read more »

matt – yes, you’re correct about Obama. Bobby Jindal made the same promise on Meet the Press a few weeks. I believe Hilary Clinton made the promise also. I bet thousands of politicians across this country over the past 5 years have made that same exact promise. Some of them are just completely full of crap. Some might honestly believe they need to pursue other offices to accomplish more things. Maybe they leave their constituents in the dark, maybe they’re trying to do more for them. People are free to form their opinions. I’m so sick and tired of people… Read more »

[quote comment=”150312″][quote comment=”150160″]Zimmer stopped talking about flooding downtown once she started trying to get people uptown to vote for her for Mayor. Now her focus is the Northwest, when it should be the Southwest. The truth is Dawn never cared about flooding, which doesn’t effect her four story townhouse. She had to be talked into using flooding as an issue against Campos by her first campaign team. It was all a ruse to get elected, just like when Dawn swore to people in the fourth ward that if elected she would not run for Mayor. Dawn is a pawn, nothing… Read more »
