Street Fight – Vote Hoboken

3/31/2007 reminder:

Tomorrow at 6pm.

3/27/2007:
Vote Hoboken will be screening this award-winning movie this weekend.

Get into a Street Fight

Get into a Street Fight … the Oscar-nominated documentary Street Fight, that is.

street-fight.jpgStreet Fight tells the story of Cory Booker, a 32-year-old Rhodes Scholar/Yale Law School grad who takes on four-term Newark mayor Sharpe James. The challenger gets an education in the politics of the streets. Although Booker lost the election that was the subject of this film, in the subsequent race last year, he prevailed easily after James declined to run. Street Fight is a unique view of New Jersey machine politics in action that many in Hoboken will recognize.

Kevin Crust of the L.A. Times called it one of the Best 10 Films of 2006. “A good ol’ bare-knuckled local election with the intrigue of a thriller… Sharp-eyed… The story that first time feature filmmaker [Marshall] Curry tells is extremely compelling, but where he really scores is in addressing politics and race in a way that allows events to speak for themselves.”

This event is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, April 1 at Willie McBrides, 616 Grand Street, Hoboken. It includes appetizers and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online by going to votehoboken.org. Or you can purchase tickets by sending a check to Vote Hoboken, 107 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030. Please give us your name, address, email, phone number and number of tickets requested.

Tickets are $25 ($500 for ringside seats) and will benefit Vote Hoboken, Inc, a non-partisan political committee that will support candidates for municipal office who are committed to fiscal responsibility, better education, public parks, balanced development and campaign finance reform.

Additional information is also available at the votehoboken.org website. For additional information pertaining to Street Fight, go to marshallcurry.com.

Oh, they’ll support him. They’re going to support him and Perry.

Two horses in the race. Same way the Had Jane Richards in against Cricco and Ines Garcia Keim.

The Next morning Maurice was seen going to Janes house with italian bread.

Scott isn’t here Tony. He’s still at the Shannon Lounge wondering why he wasn’t announced as one of the candidates on the “Incumbent Ticket” last week. 😈

[quote comment=”19332″]But, one word of caution about this “screening”….

Vote Hoboken is no “non-partisan” political committee. That is hilarious. They are actually a PAC (political action committee) set up specifically to fund Beth Mason and Peter Cunningham. So, when Cunningham and Mason talk about wanting “open”, transparent government they may want to start by being more forthcoming about the Vote Hoboken PAC and disclose how much money and support they are getting from this group. If you think I am wrong, let’s make a bet. I bet Vote Hoboken announces they have just “decided” to support Mason and Cunningham. The truth is that the PAC was specifically set up to do that in the first place. So, 411, stay on guard. Either I am totally wrong (in which case I will offer an immediate and full apology), or this is anything but “transparent, open government” at work. Instead, it may border on outright hypocrisy.

Okay bartender, (Scott)

Where’s your apology? Or is this your first broken campaign promise?

You want transparency in Government? Then I guess you gave it to us Scott because everyone sees right through you.

[quote comment=”19450″]tony what do you think of the 6th ward candidates, foley giacchi and noonan[/quote]

Giacchi parks at Stevens Hudson Street Lot for Free last I knew. Then rents his two car Garage on Court street for profit. Nino is way to wishy washy and acts as if he’ll do the right thing. Now he’s just Ramos’s butt kisser.

Foley was the Zoning Board guy that was pro variance and a member of an anti rent control group that was run buy the former owners of Archstone(Pegusus)

I’d vote for Billy Noonan. He can’t be bought.
