Hoboken Monday Morning Capsules

Hoboken Capsules for May 9, 2011

No, Hoboken Capsules isn’t a new drug that came out to help you deal with the nonsense here in the Mile Square (but may not be a bad idea!)

Hoboken Capsules (a.k.a. “breakfast nuggets”) are just some drive-by bullets, recent news, mini-updates, etc. to start your work week off with:

Are you taking the PATH today?

After yesterdays PATH train crash in Hoboken – is anyone in somewhat hesitant to use it? As a guy who prefers being above ground – I’d have a cautious feeling today…

Hoboken Good News!

Hoboken resident David wanted to share some good news. His daughter Lindsay had a garage sale in the 4th Ward, in order to raise money for the Pencils of Promise charity.

She successfully raised $248 dollars – and even 4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipinti stopped by in a show of support. Nice to have council people that actually make themselves available to constituents instead of spending their time with backroom deals, right?

Are you missing a black cat?

Hoboken resident Albert spotted a black cat in the neighborhood of 1st & Madison – that didn’t look like it was supposed to be there.

Is he/she yours?

Enjoy your week, Hoboken!

Hey, there’s Tim! Have you seen this letter from Tim? I’ll just leave this right here… (Thanks!) Dear Friends and Neighbors, I’m writing to you on the eve of an important municipal election to ask for your support.

Today, after working together with many residents of the 4th ward, I can tell you that we are starting to climb, together. The once forgotten 4th ward is now getting its fair share of attention. We made the budget surplus the number one issue in this campaign. I said you were overcharged and that the surplus should go back to you. I’m fighting to ensure this budget will have significant tax relief and a leaner, more efficient government that doesn’t rely on budget gimmicks and cuts waste where it’s needed. Before I took office, hope for a 4th ward park was at an all-time low.Today, a new Southwest Park has never been closer after we made sure it was a top priority of the $20 million Open Space bond. I won’t vote for a park unless it’s a 4th ward park. I also made sure that the parks we do have were taken care… Read more »

Don’t think the cat is lost. It looks like the one that lives behind me, same neighborhood. It’s an outdoor cat although it usually keeps to the backyard

Election money capsules talk loudly ❗ Having many paid workers equates to votes [especially if they are in the hundreds in a rather small local election]. Just as in life and business, money is the name of the game in politics. In itself, it is legal and in itself it can be the great ‘decider’. It has been the many past elections… will it be the same Tuesday in our ward council battles ❓
