Hoboken Political Bites – 10/14/2009
Today’s Breakfast Platter: Brinkman, Mason and Raia updates.
Mayoral Candidate Updates
Nathan Brinkman Is All About Transparency and Open Government
Mayoral Candidate Nathan Brinkman held a press conference yesterday at Wild Ginger that was all about government transparency.
Brinkman said “One of the biggest problems we face is out of control government spending,” and called for a re-vamp of how residents can easily gain access to ALL government records online saying “Putting this information online, in a format that would be easy to access by the public, would have several immediate salutary effects.”
Mason Meet & Greet at Hudson Tavern – Oct. 15th
I normally don’t mention every meetup or fundraiser for most Mayoral Candidates, because they’re so many of them leading up to the election – and those that follow politics tightly already know about them.
However, Beth Mason’s “Meet and Greet” at Hudson Tavern (14th & Hudson) this Thursday, October 15th from 7-9pm – includes FREE DRINKS. Now, that is something to be interested in, right? Not many candidates do that!
Frank Raia wants to run Hoboken like a Business
Frank agrees with many folks who felt that Michael Bloomberg was able to turn NYC around because of his excellent business experience.
“Mayor Bloomberg returned prosperity to NYC by running it as a successful business. I will do the same for Hoboken, NJ. Experience matters! I have the experience to lead Hoboken out of financial crisis. Every problem in our City comes down to financial mismanagement.”
