Politics and City Happenings

  • Council Election Complete!A Hoboken rarity – no runoff elections! The Mayans were right!
  • Bookmarking FraudThe last few weeks were not without highly questionable incidents. Here’s a handy list of bookmarks we’ll surely be revisiting again in the future:
    • What next for Tom Greaney? – will he “sail away,” “fly by night,” or continue his involvement in Hoboken now that he’s no longer useful?
    • Out of town voters – Will that happen again in 2013?
    • 4th Ward Fraud – Will more Zimmer supporters vote where they’re told? Or where they live?
  • Ohaus Lynch Mob ContinuesThe Kids First group of political thugs are looking for any possible loophole to rid Hoboken of a highly respected and loved teacher of the arts. Sounds more like society de-volving!
  • Why such voter apathy?The never ending mystery of why hardly anyone votes in municipal elections.
  • Cake Boss hops the riverExpands to NYC Times Square. Will than lessen the load in Hoboken?
