Here's what Al Sullivan, my ex-boyfriend of 13 minutes, had to say about Hoboken this week:
This also poses some interesting issues for Hoboken, where Assemblyman Ruben Ramos is likely seeking to challenge Mayor Dawn Zimmer in next May’s municipal election. Second Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason is reportedly considering a run for the Assembly. The problem is that she would seek Ramos’ seat. One of the two Assembly seats in state Sen. Brian Stack’s district would have to go to a Latino. If Mason was to replace Ramos, then the Jersey City seat currently occupied by Connors would have to go to a Latino instead. If all this sounds to you like an elaborate game of musical chairs, you’re right.Interesting stuff!
About that Latino-slot conundrum, can Mason be considered Latino if she's got one cooking meals, washing dirty socks, and scrubbing toilets in her Hudson Street mansion? GA's got no idea if she does, but it's worth looking into.
Well, GA likes Ruben and hopes he does run against the mayor.
Why do I like Ruben? He makes a great sandwich. Though respectfully, I would ask him for a gluten-free version.
What's Zimmer got to offer?
Organic greens from Whole Foods with a bag of alfalfa sprouts. No thanks, skinny lady. Now get on your bike and shoo!
GA's been brainstorming on slogans for the Ramos campaign:
- No Baloney, just Corned Beef
- Ramos Cuts Taxes Like Your Sandwich
- Ruben Melts Taxes With Your Cheese
- Ready to Serve Hoboken: Lower Taxes and Lunch
- Ruben Slices Taxes and Cuts the Cheese
Do The People really want what's good for them- salad topped with shredded carrots? Or a heart-clogging platter of sodium and cholesterol?
I'm going with the sandwich. Sorry, Mayor.
Meanwhile, good luck to Mayor Brian Stack. I love him; he sent me another birthday card and the pic of him on the cover doesn't look a day older than he did on last year's. In fact, it is the one he sent last year. No wonder!
Enjoy your day, folks.
