2nd Ward voters need to understand that that a vote for Beth Mason is a vote for the "team" that govern for her.
How do I know?
Because thousands of email communications between Beth Mason and SLAPP Plaintiffs Lane Bajardi and Kim Cardinal that entered the public domain during their failed SLAPP suit, reveal the shocking truth: Beth Mason outsources governing to her consultants, operatives, hangers-on and relatives. Her "team" writes her statements, reads her email, drafts her platform, instructs her (via text) what to do in real time during City Council meetings, and in the example to follow, answer a Hoboken Revolt questionnaire for her in the 2009 mayoral race.
The public got an inkling of Mason's detachment from her duties on July 10, 2013 when Corporation Counsel Melissa Longo revealed that 1st Ward Councilwoman Terry Castellano had sent James Barracato, Beth Mason's political operative on an internal request for information in place of Beth Mason!
The 2nd Ward can only imagine how detached their Councilwoman is from her duties... Mason doesn't read her own email! SHOCKING.
The reality, exposed in hundreds of emails between the 2nd Ward Councilwoman and her political operatives, exposes the extent to which others handle simple tasks for her.
Can Mason answer a simple questionairre about her policy position in the 2009 mayoral race on her own?

GA doesn't understand why it takes a village for a Ward Councilwoman to perform her job in a small city like Hoboken- do you?
2nd Ward residents have to ask: is this "team governance" normal?
Is Mason mentally and physically fit to govern without a "village"?
