when you have 20,000 or 30,000 wild kids coming ito a town that is one square mile then you are going to to have problems,, and no police force is going to control them,,, you would be better off calling in the national guard


OK, so 3600 comments on St Patty’s, most of them overwhelmingly negative. And that just represents people who are on H411 and took the time to post. Kind of makes you wonder what total percentage of Hoboken residents want to see this nonsense eliminated or at least changed once and for all because it’s only a matter of time before a real disaster occurs. And so far what have the three mayoral candidates done/said about it? Little to nothing at all. Beth paid it some lip service by making some noise about a quality of life commission but hasn’t really spoken up about it. As far as I know neither Dawn nor Peter have commented on it publicly. In other words, same old crap–ignore it until it goes away and then deal with it again next year. My vote will go to the first candidate that actually comes up with a plan to deal with this (and the other quality of life issues Hobokenites face). I’m not holding my breath.
