Get out and vote (again!)
After Zimmer’s 1070-956 victory, some post-election speeches from both candidates:
Congratulations Dawn Zimmer,
As you know, Hoboken411 hasn’t really supported either candidate, and we’re focused on making Hoboken better overall. Maybe Campos was not the best candidate, but now is your chance to PROVE why people voted for you, and please note that you’ve been given the PRIVILEGE to represent the 4th Ward, we urge you to make a difference finally. If you want to be a “different” politician, you need to be in constant contact with your constituents, listen to resident complaints, and have an open forum on your website, or come on 411 and respond to people’s issues directly, at the most visited web community in Hudson County.
ALL EYES ARE ON YOU NOW, DAWN. Let’s see how you do!
Congrats again, and *good luck*.
Dawn Zimmer: 1,070
Chris Campos: 956
Apparently those absentees aren’t “official” yet (what? – are they “finding” new ones under the sofa cushions)… but the fact that there is a 118 vote differential, this website thinks the outcome will be no different.
If I’m wrong, just buy me another beer. I have a dart match soon.
Zimmer by +182
Zimmer ahead by 118 overall.
Zimmer claims victory
Not including absentee ballots…
According to reader NAF (who correctly called the previous elections spot on), said the following:
4-1: Zimmer 265; Campos 137
4-2: Zimmer 472; Campos 49
4-3: Zimmer 131; Campos 178
4-4: Zimmer 178; Campos 384.
Pretty simple. If you live in the 4th Ward, please vote today, so that it can be the third (and last) time we have to deal with this election.
Residents of all Wards can also vote for the “pretty much no contest” Senate / Assembly / County Executive / Sheriff / Clerk races if you wish. Don’t forget about the public questions too, such as Stem Cell research and the Hoboken Municipal Open Space tax.
