Another candidate throws his hat in the 5th Ward ring. Peter Cunningham is having his Kick-off party this Sunday.

What: Peter Cunningham for Council Kick-off Party
When: 4:00 – 6:00, Sunday, March 18, 2007
Where: 10th and Willow (open bar and appetizers will be served)

I am running for City Council in the 5th Ward. Like many of you, I worked hard for Marsh for Mayor and our 2003 slate of City Council Candidates and it has been four tough years of disappointment, with the exception of Theresa Minutillo’s election to school board last year, in our efforts to elect candidates that stood to do the right thing for everyone in Hoboken.

Since 2003, our city government continues to waste our hard earned tax dollars vis a vis fiscal irresponsibility; lack of vision to put safety and security first within our failing infrastructure; and miss opportunities to preserve desperately needed programmed open space (over $300 thousand spent on master plan – out the window), for our children and seniors.

Join us on Sunday, and bring the family to enjoy snacks and beverages at 10th and Willow to help plan for a better Hoboken.

Peter Cunningham
Candidate for City Council

So Moko65 – You sound like you know this guy. So what does Cunningham have to say for himself? I have to agree that the Hoboken Dog Association is hardly a force to be reconed with. What do they do? Or should I say – What have they done lately? I mean, it seems like a “good cause” and all that – but what are they doing?

I am cautiously optimistic with this guy. He has run (or has been involved in) a number of campaigns – most recently Carol Marsh’s. That runoff – though unsucessful – was a good sign for Hoboken. Peter Cunningham is pretty well connected and has a position at Bank of NY I believe. He is well positioned to be an agent of change in the areas that Hoboken needs it the most – budget reform; pay-to-play; etc. But will he? For the cautionary side to this tale, talk to anyone who has been involved with the “Hoboken Dog Association” for more than a few years. Started in a bar a good number of years back by a half-dozen or so dog-owners, the organization fought for spaces to responsibly run dogs. They were able to get some good dog runs put in and a good vaccine program for dogs. Over the past 4-5 years many of the gains won by that group have been lost – those runs have become disgusting and broken down; dog owners lost priveleges on places like Pier A and are frequently harassed by the ‘dog-Nazis’ that patrol the parks. The Dog Association has been largely silent and has occupied its time by having biannual doggie costume parades and occaisional outing to pet psychics and dog yoga practitioners. They have even gone so far as to post “dog run rules” in the dog runs supporting the current administration’s take on dogs… What really stuck in my craw was… Read more »

Well, this guy sounds like someone with potential, if only for the fact that he questions the ridiculous amount of wasted tax dollars courtesy of our current regime….
