Dawn Zimmer Sends Thanks
A message from Dawn Zimmer, winner of the recent 4th Ward re-re-election this past November 6th.
Councilwoman Zimmer Thanks Hoboken411 for Bringing Out the Vote!
Announces Final Vote Counts for the 4th Ward Election
“Thank you Hoboken411 for helping to bring out 2,057 people to vote in the 4th Ward election. After provisional ballots were counted today at the Bureau of Elections, the official vote count showed a 119 margin with 1,088 votes for me, and 969 for Mr. Campos.
I want to thank Hoboken411 for its coverage of the heated 4th Ward battle and for providing a place for everyone to air their opinions on the issues. It was tough to see my name sometimes bounced around like a ping-pong ball, but after three rounds in the ring my skin has this really tough texture to it.
Let’s face it, it’s hip to be on 411 and keep informed. A weekly paper just doesn’t have the same kind of energy as instant news and lively discussions. We appreciate all the work you do behind the scenes to keep the site updated with the latest news. And I know it has got to take a lot of effort to monitor some of those crazy bloggers. Through it all, your work has definitely increased voter participation in the 4th Ward!
I hope we can work together to get more of those young people to take a minute to unplug their iPods, so they can learn what’s happening in their neighborhood. If you live in Hoboken, you should vote in Hoboken, and your site is certainly helping to make that happen!
4th Ward Councilwoman Zimmer
