Senior event at Elks Lodge
Pandering the Senior Vote
Yesterday afternoon, hundreds of Hoboken Senior Citizens gathered at Elks Lodge No. 74 on 10th and Washington – to honor State Assemblyman and former council member Ruben Ramos and his running mates.
11th Street crossing guard and outspoken citizen Margaret O’Brien was in attendance, and shared some photos. She particularly enjoyed Loretta Weinberg’s talk about health care saying “That grandma running with Corzine is a real sharp lady. She’s going to town for us Seniors. I hope she wins!”
Other “political figures” were also there, including Maurice Fitzgibbons, Anthony “Stick” Romano and Perry Belfiore, plus Mayoral candidates Kim Glatt (“She was really nice to the seniors”), Beth Mason and Dawn Zimmer. Missing from the mix were Frank “Pupie” Raia and Patricia Waiters.
Her favorite photo was the lady with the cannoli tray “Now that’s Italian!”
