MLK – A day on, not a day off

MLK Day in Hoboken, NJ

Today, as most of you know – is Martin Luther King Day, and many of you got to enjoy this long three-day weekend.

Several private schools and organizations (like Stevens and All Saints) – instead of taking this day off, are volunteering at local shelters and churches – to help those less fortunate.

But as expected – public schools in Hoboken, as well as City Hall are closed today, while officials are probably skiing or loafing around at home. This may be why Mayor Dawn Zimmer chose to hold Hoboken’s MLK “festivities” this past Friday. Can’t expect too much from our administration these days, so it’s par for the course, I suppose.
