Mayoral Priorities: Reality TV or Hoboken?
In regards to this week’s Season Finale of “The Next Great Baker,” some residents thought that it was inappropriate for Mayor Dawn Zimmer to enjoy casual time on television, when serious work still needs attention in Hoboken. “Guest appearances on TV while our city falls apart? Where are her priorities?” said Alan.
Resident Shane added “To find time for unimportant distractions like this is disrespectful to those who voted for her and expected better. What next, a week-long stint on Hollywood Squares? Disgusting.”
Some other readers didn’t see the harm, but one wasn’t so forgiving: “Who needs inspiration from FDR: (“the only thing we have to fear…..”) or JFK: (“Ask not what…..”), when we’ve got the great Dawn Zimmer: (“I’m not comfortable being on top of a cake, but I am comfortable riding my bicycle.”) Well, give her a few drinks, a black bustier, a red wig, and she’d jump on top of that cake faster than Diamond Stan can bark “Wendy!”“
Do you think it’s appropriate for the Mayor to be seen casually on TV – while Hoboken is in shambles?
