Frank “Pupie” Raia enters the digital realm

Mayoral Candidate and longtime Hoboken resident Frank Raia finally has a website for one of his political endeavors. He says:

“Hoboken’s budget has been mismanaged and that’s why taxes are up by 47%. No one in City Hall has experience managing a $100 million budget. The combination of overspending and inadequate revenue has created a crisis. I am the only candidate with the plan and the experience to stabilize the finances of Hoboken. As mayor, I will approach Hoboken’s finances as I would a $100 million business, I will decrease taxes, and get Hoboken back on track.”

Another good sports weekend!

For the time being, NY sports lovers are “feeling the high” of winning. The Giants cruise to 5-0, the Yankees swept the Twins (with a little help from the umps), and Boston got their asses handed to them. Sayonara!

Will the Phillies finish off the Rockies tonight?

Green is the new black I guess…

Now that Al Gore and the rest of the people who stand to benefit financially from the “Green Movement” have successfully brainwashed a good chunk of society – stories like this don’t have much impact to anyone. Wake up sheeple!

NBC sinking fast – because of Leno?

The Times had an article yesterday about how NBC might be struggling, indicating it might have something to do with the decision to show Leno at Primetime. Did they ever consider it might be the shoddy reporting and weaving their political agenda into their programming? Hmmm…

HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY, EVERYONE!

PS. Almost like the City Offender Zone blog, but more specifically geared toward proposed parking solutions.

Good idea. Perhaps there could be a Bad Parking B**tard picture-of-the-day: cross walk blockers, two-spot hogs, etc.

OTOH, it may be futile. It would be great for the city to create a moderate-priced alternative to parking on the street… but would the city shut off their #2 or #3 revenue generator? Hardly. “Solving the parking problem” is only trotted out at election time…

Suggestion to h411. Like you have a “rave’ and a “rant” corner, have a “Hoboken cars & parking” corner. Routinely many threads end up in a debate about walking vs driving, insults directed toward bicyclists, ban cars in Hoboken, how this issue is handled in other towns, shortcomings of our mass transit system, why I need a car, ridiculing Al Gore, etc, etc, etc….

dimwitted comment eye4eye…i love these people – sometimes they are hippies, sometimes i don’t know what they are – but they believe that everyone should walk or ride their bike everywhere. what about people who live on, say, jefferson? want to go to some place on hudson or river.

i am FAR from fat, and i’m sorry, not all of us want to waste time walking 30 minutes roundtrip. since it’s all concrete and brick and what not, and isn’t pretty and has no cultural offerings other than nail salons and real estate offices and very mediocre restaurants, a lot of us only live here solely b/c we work in manhattan. and would prefer to live in the suburbs where things aren’t a pain in the ass.

dimwitted.

I can’t see how there is any reasonable solution to parking as long as they continue to build giant condos without enough parking spots of their own.

Lets say they DO build more garages — that will help the residents who have cars/park TODAY. Think of all the people who don’t have cars now….but will once there are a few extra spots due to people moving into city garages…..then we’re back to square one.
