Inauguration Today

7/1/2009 Update 3:

Zimmer voted President; Cunningham VP

The City Council voted anonymously unanimously to appoint Dawn Zimmer as Council President – and Peter Cunningham as Council Vice-President.

7/1/2009 Update 2 (1:45pm):

The ceremony started late – and is getting close to finishing up now. Up next, is a “cocktail” reception over at the Babbio Center. Nice setup with a hazy NYC view today. Once guests arrive, and “mingle” for a while – they’ll head over to DeBaun Auditorium for today’s scheduled Council Meeting. That will likely start late as well. (Although – one volunteer indicated that the Council Meeting may start next – with the reception as the last event – but she wasn’t 100% sure…)

7/1/2009 Update:

Here’s a photostream of what has transpired in the past hour at Stevens Institute. Various dignitaries, including Governor Corzine (who’s aide told me that he *did* vote in this year’s Mayoral Election, FYI)Cory Booker, Senator Menendez, and many other Hoboken VIP’s – including Former Mayor David Roberts.

7/1/2009:

Changing of the…

In a little over an hour, Hoboken will have a new Mayor: Peter Cammarano.

Taking place at Stevens Institute

Over at Stevens Institute (Noon) – the 37th Mayor of Hoboken will be sworn in, along with three new council members: Dave Mello, Ravi Bhalla and Carol Marsh.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker will kick things off, and NJ Governor Jon Corzine is “expected” to attend as well.

After all the pomp and circumstance, boilerplate news quotes, and future stock photo opportunities – the city is holding an early reorganization/council meeting at 2pm at the DeBaun Auditorium (where I think all future council meetings should be held – the council chambers at City Hall is more like a “torture chamber.”)

SEE AGENDA HERE.

In addition to the inauguration – the council will also vote for a new president and vice-president.

Anyone use a valuable vacation or sick day from work to witness this historical Hoboken moment?

Wiskey, there you go again. In one post, you talk about all the taxes you pay, and in another post, you talk about all the money you saved due to “yuppie tax dollars.” If life is so wonderful for you, why do you sound so bitter?

411, the “cocktails” at the reception were iced tea, lemonade, water and coffee. The cake, however was superb! Nicely done, Buddy!

My comment was based on converstations with Hal.

That’s interesting that you claim they had the last two or three in a building that was built in 2003.
