Cammarano’s first two weeks
Had a chance to sit down with new Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano late this past Friday afternoon (PC troubles delayed the video till today) – and he talks about his first 10 days, along with what is happening at city hall in the short-term.
Hit the ground running…
(those noises you hear were from work being done in his office…)
New Hoboken411 feature: “Ask Mayor Cammarano”
In our discussion – I thought that it’d be a great idea to establish some kind of regular “communiqué” between the Mayor’s office and readers of Hoboken411.
Cammarano gladly accepted that idea, and is more than willing to periodically engage the collective audience about their concerns.
How is this going to work?
While Peter says his doors are open, and anyone can call, email or visit his office – the purpose of this feature is to put the questions and answers out in the open for everyone to see. With that being said, here’s a rough outline how it’ll work (and may be fine tuned as necessary):
- You can either place a comment here, on Cammarano’s “Campaign Checklist” entry, or the best way – is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (the subject MUST be: “Cammarano question”)
- Every two weeks, I will present the Mayor with a list of popular questions for him to address.
- The questions can either be related to what he campaigned about, or better yet – NEW issues that may have popped up since the election. Asinine, insulting, or baseless rumor-based questions might not make the cut. Preferred are questions about the quality of life in Hoboken, and how the Mayor plans to address many of the concerns residents have.
- Additionally, if you have very specific questions about a street, block or corner – please contact your councilperson first. If you have NOT received a timely response – THEN submit here.
- My goal is to have something unique every two weeks, alternating between written and video responses.
Some initial questions already asked by residents I’ve spoken with include: Helping small businesses, Historic Preservation, the art community, street conditions and even the number of garbage cans that are available on the sidewalks.
So put your thinking caps on – and send your questions in!
