Hoboken Elections – Yes, Again.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is Election Day in Hoboken

I know how tempting it is to think “it doesn’t matter, they are all the same in the end” and not vote.  For all you people out there that are interested in the Hoboken real estate market, though, it does matter.  PLEASE find the time to go out and vote tomorrow.  You care about your property taxes, no?  And what you can get for your place when you sell?  Or what you’ll have to pay to buy?  Or even how much you pay in rent?  All these are drastically affected by our local government.

There is a real difference between the candidates and their views.  From what I’ve read, Beth Mason & Dawn Zimmer seem to have a significant lead.  This is winner take all election – no run offs, no majority needed.  One vote could elect our next Mayor.  Not sure who you should vote for?  Also understandable.  Take a look at some of the posts on Hoboken411.com.  Read the comments too.  Of course many of them are biased but it’s better than the Hoboken Reporter or the ridiculous campaign ‘literature’ they keep shoving in my mailbox.  Do some reading.  Give it some thought.  Please go vote.

    I am voting against development that considers the patch of grass on north end of shop rite’s parking a “park,” and for pushing through a cinema without parking (with which we’re now dealing). Aside from that, I am torn b/t demonstrated incompetence at managing a meeting vs. someone connected to county corruption and stated desire to (over) build northwest without plans for infrastructure improvements, including NJ transit bus routes to accommodate said northwest build-out.
