Cammarano’s political pontificating & posturing

12/5/2007:

Seems like someone in town is gearing up really early to run for Mayor of this goldmine City.

If you still doubt whether Councilman-at-Large Peter Cammarano is running for Mayor, just take a look at his new website.

Its a move right out of the book Smarmy Politics for Dummies: take an issue caused by a big government agency that nobody is going to oppose you on and try to appear as though you are “leading the charge” against it as a man of the people. It’s painfully obvious.

What is Peter up in arms about? A proposed increase in the PATH fare. While he lectures the Port Authority his website says nothing of the added burden of higher taxes and fees he voted for in the his two and a half years on the City Council. I searched the site and couldn’t find a declaration of who is paying for it. It does say “White Horse Strategies” put it together. You may recall some operatives from that firm came on Hoboken411 to comment for Chris Campos. Just like the ill-fated “Voice For All Hoboken” campaign, this seems to have more to do with promoting Peter Cammarano than fighting an inevitable increase in PATH fares.

What do you think?

Yeah, it is pretty self-damning how she does that. But what do you expect, Manolo?

She has an official position with the highly corrupted Machine. Of course she’s gonna defend these guys whatever they do.

Re: Margaret, she is not a bad soul. I know her well but won’t reveal how…I am just always disappointed in how she defends the Hoboken and Hudson co. machine. Its sad really.

Thanks for the explanation – I thought the clip was all about Cammarano being the Flying Monkey and Bri777 being her ‘little dog Toto’.

[But who would be the Wizard of Ostracism? Hmmmmm….]

I think Maragaret was way out of line to screech “libel’ and ‘slander’ and ‘lawsuit’, etc, – that’s it’s own kind of defamation.

Bri777 definitely took the whole thing much, much better in stride.
