Hoboken Week in Review – 9/20/2009
Politics heating up again!
With about six weeks left before the umpteenth Hoboken election in 2009, politics is naturally getting more attention in town.
So what made the hottest entries for the week ending Sunday, September 20th, 2009?
Duck, Duck, Duck, Council!
Stevens Institute gets charged with fiscal impropriety, but says “no way!” A Stevens student also writes a story about it (rejected by the school paper, though)
Yep – a story published almost two weeks ago is still hot on the charts – now around 500 comments!
I inquired about some Hoboken bar crawl called a “Bar-a-thon.” The verdict is in – it’s a stupid ripoff, says you the residents.
A cool pair of awesome and ferocious falcons make a pit stop in Hoboken.
So many political stories in Hoboken, I decided to lump them all together at the end:
Eight Mayoral candidates file petitions. This of course, was not without controversy.
The last two council meetings combined equal one half calendar day – yes – 12 hours.
Councilwoman Beth Mason announces candidacy – and releases the first commercial of election season .
Perpetual candidate Frank “Pupie” Raia also throws his hat into the mayoral ring…
She names new directors – and a reader has some thoughts about them as well.
- NEW: The anticipated Piri Piri Portuguese BBQ place opens. Have you tried it yet?
- COMING SOON: Two new bars on the way: McCarthy’s Pub and the Turtle Club.
- DOOMED: Juniors Papaya bids farewell – along with uptown convenience store – Metro Deli.
- UPDATED: Mocked Real Estate property 912 Castle Point is finally sold; and mis-understood food establishment Zebu Forno changes their name and franchise association.
