Politics and City Happenings

  • Nazi spinZimmer appointed Zoning Board broad Nancy Pincus spews hate and vile images about those with differing opinions for a whole year – then gets called out. The spinning must be getting her and the rest of them very dizzy.
  • New look Council4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipinti sworn in.
  • Cops doing their jobBut some feel they shouldn’t park illegally when responding to calls.
  • Slippery StepsNope, not a new board game from Parker Brothers – but so-called “improvements” to sidewalks that become treacherous to walk on when wet. Brilliant.
  • City ThieveryMore residents than ever are noticing how sneaky the city is with their “Temporary” no-parking signs – robbing money from hard working citizens.
  • Cross your fingersThat the newest part of the Hoboken waterfront walkway uptown doesn’t collapse eventually.
  • Box still Blocked!Shoddy paint job and lack of enforcement results in the same traffic headache downtown.
  • More sneakinessThe City charged families $25 to play in little league this year, but failed to mention that practically everything was taken away from them.
  • Now Boarding?Talk begins about bringing the No 7 Subway Line from NYC under Hoboken – through to Secaucus. Most people think it’s a great idea.
