Hoboken City Council – Animated

The Hoboken City Council – in a nutshell

A very small handful of of Hoboken residents may go through psychotic withdrawal during summer months when the council may skip a meeting or two. So I’ll fill the void with this entry today.

Was speaking with a resident the other day, and wanted to share their comment about the “state of politics” in Hoboken.

He told me “I’ve never witnessed such a bitter body of politicians in my life here it town (over 20 years). The spiteful, vitriolic nature between the council members and from the administration embarrasses me. I truly believe that some of them have genuinely forgotten what they were elected to do, and that is to serve the people of Hoboken. Through my eyes, I only see grandstanding and self-promotion, regardless of what their press releases say afterward. The tone some at-large council people have when speaking at meetings is condescending and unprofessional. They have really lost sight of their responsibilities in a very big way. I wish they’d put the egos aside, and get to work! The city is not theirs alone. It belongs to the residents and taxpayers.”

He also added that it’s a shame that the level of political participation in Hoboken, as well as the rest of the country is so pathetically low, and it’s unfortunate that it usually takes a massive crisis or disaster to re-focus the population on certain priorities.

After our conversation, an image came to mind, which could very well represent the net results of how some might perceive Hoboken’s elected officials:

Enjoy the rest of your day, Hoboken! A little more than 5 weeks left until Fall!

Let the INDEPENDENTS decide! Here’s an old Latin quote, I have used and have seen repeated several times – “vox populi vox Dei.” – “The voice of the people is the voice of God.” – Alcuin, letter to Charlemagne 💡

Both current political sides forget their oath to serve the public – too many times. They use the labels old guard and reformer….what about those who have favored one side or other in the past and do not like the current performance of the entire council(?)- [their inability to work together]. – they are now real independents who do not like to be called names and will vote and work for those who present a better alternative.

Well it may just be that our elected officials HAVEN’T forgot what they were elected to do. It comes down to whether you support this administration or you don’t. The rubber stamper elected officials support every crazed antic of this mayor, while other elected officials see things differently (as their voters who elected them do). If you’re a rubber stamper supporter, then you will see ALL other opinions as grandstanding.
