Hoboken411.com has become an important place for Hoboken residents to connect and share important information. This is why I want your readers to be some of the first to know I am announcing my candidacy for 5th Ward Councilperson.
Two years ago I ran for City Council-at-Large (which represents the entire City). My campaign was focused on principle rather than politics and I received a tremendous amount of positive support from all types of voters including young, old, “born and raised” or “yuppies”.
After the election, the Hoboken Reporter wrote “[Delea] received an extremely strong showing for a political newcomer. Internet marketing executive Scott Delea obtained [1,336] votes. With little budget but a strong work ethic, Delea was able to beat out the entire slates of Smith and Russo, which is no small feat.”
On May 8th, Hoboken voters will have the chance to vote for a new councilperson for the 5th Ward. It is time to elect someone who isn’t afraid to speak up and fight for more transparent, effective government and has a track record of business/community success. It is time for a change and I am prepared to provide the new, proactive, positive leadership our City desperately needs.
I intend to leverage my business and community experience to get things done in City Hall. My business career includes being one of the original employees of DigitalGrit, which is a New Jersey-based company voted one of the “Best Places to Work in America”. I currently serve as President of Adverb Media Inc. which is the 125 employee parent-company of DigitalGrit.
Over four years ago, I founded a not-for-profit in Hoboken called Party With Purpose. Party With Purpose (otherwise known as PWP) has donated $100,000 to worthy local charities such as the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club, Jubilee Center and Alzheimer’s Association.
I feel these experiences make me uniquely qualified to represent all elements of the 5th Ward and well prepared to provide the leadership the 5th Ward so richly deserves.

All the best,
Positive Leadership for Hoboken
