Readerpix: Back in 2005…

5/11/2009:

Hoboken411 reader Jerry sent in this picture of a “celebratory” 2005 campaign flier that brings up the saying: “Those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it!”

Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 5/11/2009

“In this 2005 campaign mailer Peter Cammarano is seen cheering on his mentor Dave Roberts, who is celebrating state approval of his latest back-door borrowing scheme. It was mailed after arms were twisted to approve Roberts’ plan to put an $8 million mortgage on the Municipal Garage to fill his budget gap. This was the latest in a string of one-shot revenue deals Roberts used to hide the true impact of his incredible exploding budget, and there was Cammarano literally right behind him. By the way, in 2005 the budget was $72 million. Those were the good old days!”

What a crew!

Mayor Augustus Gloop has since gained another chin from his frequent trips to the chocolate factory and has with great success, destroyed the city with overdevelopment. Not to mention the ongoing corruption and scandals, out of control tax increase, missing funds, and flooding just to name a few, making the town an international laughing stock! Thanx Dave!

Ramos used his Cancer for the sympathy vote and while in league with Gloop also helped send Hojoken back to the finacial drawing board several times over.

Campos was finally found out to be a fraud and a drunkard getting his fake ass kicked by Zimmer twice! Good work Dawn!

Deadbeat Pete Scammarano is finally exposed for the true piece of trash he is thanx to 411! 😉 Hopefully Gloops “boy toy” gets his ass handed to him today in a bag to go!

Cricco has since renewed his subscription to High Times Magazine and got his 2009 NORML card in the mail recently, as well as the key to the city for his “uh..hum” bravery for trying to rescue residents and bud from a burning building in his best Jeff Spicolli / Chong moment. Who knew wax paper was so flammable?

I’d suggest cosmetic tips for Cammarano. But there’s no make-up out there to cover-up Cammarano’s personality blemishes.

Memories
Like the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we?
Could we?

Hours before the voting begins. And I’m pretty certain that Camma-RAT-0 has the die hard Roberts and Clinton intern & cigar fan vote locked up tight.

The stake is going into Team Roberts/Camma-RAT-0 though. End the reign of these vampires.

We can’t even get them on RICO which this town needs in the worst way since I heard Roberts sold his home to his wife for $1. Lot of that going around.

Hello, Passaic County Social Services. Yes, I think you missed some unnamed assets.
