Lenz in the top 10…he made it big time. Seriously, the discourse was great and only an informed public can make good decisions at the ballot box. Since Tip O’Neill wrote the book “All Politics is Local”, the Hoboken May 09 Mayor/Council race should be a benchmark for the future of Hoboken’s financial and quality of life issues.
