Tears from the Dark


Forwarded by a reader:

Does anyone know who came in #7 on the city council contest?  Hint. Zimmer team 1-3. Ruben team. 4-6.
  • Matt Calicchio Does matter who came in 7th the real question is do you know who came in 2nd for Mayor. Please send my condolences to Sandra and Veronica please
  • David A Liebler Matt lmao. #7
  • Matt Calicchio Point is Ruben lost and his supporters are miserable lol
  • Anthony Poulin Actually the point is dawn won because the opposition never got their shit together, IMO
  • John Keim The point is Dawn won because last year she convinced the voters that we no longer need runoffs. This is her second term of winning with less than 50% of the electorate. If she reaches out, kudos. If not, Frank, Tim Occhipinti, Jamie Cryan, Peter et al ought to hang their heads in shame (or demand compensation from Dawn...). Good luck to the mayor in her second term; good luck to the people of our fair city.
  • Anthony Poulin Well, while i no longer live in Hoboken I know full well that there is no single source of blame here. Fact is the opposition couldn't unify behind a single candidate for whatever reasons. The blame for that is shared equally, Ruben should have and cou...See More
  • John Keim If we hadn't eliminated the runoff system last year this would not be an issue. Under 50% does not constitute a majority in my book but it now wins elections. A new reality. The best part of this election is that those who spent the most money lost.
  • Anthony Poulin Well Dawn has a good sense of self-preservation. I fail to see any positives in this election, regardless of what was spent at the end of the day Zimmer is still mayor and Ruben and/or Tim are not.
  • John Keim Tenants' rights won (again). Without runoffs we will always be at the mercy of ego and revenge driven campaigns that put up third groups that do not have a hope of winning. The solution is to push for partisan elections now, with primaries.

  1. Does John not realize that partisan elections with primaries would have the same impact, all 3 of these candidates would have run as democrats, and everyone who cared would register as a democrat to pick between them. The primary is one shot, winner take all, and then there would some token republican in the general.

  3. Ego & revenge driven campaigns? Isn't that how you would describe Mason's involvement in the last few campaigns? Perhaps he should look in the mirror when he says that next time.

  4. Chris Christie received 48% of the vote in 2009. He was therefore not the "real" governor of New Jersey the past four years as we will await the results of that runoff.

    Bill Clinton received 43% of the popular vote in 1992. I understand that a runoff election between GHWB and Clinton will soon be put on the calendar. GHWB is said to have stated just last week that without a runoff, Clinton won't be the "real" president, and also that the results are the fault of Ross Perot and his damn ego.

  6. Not to mention every BOE election - no runoff.

  7. John Krime should stick to what he does best driving his wife to the Giattino home on behalf of Beth Mason's utter depravity and evil.

    First, if you eliminate the fraud vote, the mayor is easily over 50%. Second, they could have had one candidate and they wouldn't have won anyway.

    While the OG want to believe that they would have won without Raia and Mason involved, it's just another bitter pipe dream. They can choke on it for the next four years.

    Thank God for Mayor Zimmer and her council majority! Ravi Bhalla's comments were so refreshing and true. They care about the community and want to serve, the Dark Siders care about themselves and want enrichment and power.

    Hoboken is finally moving away from the darkness. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to preserve and protect this city, first and foremost Mayor Zimmer!

    1. Does that idiot bimbo shit for brains Ines think that no one would find out what the fuck she is up to with her "Jen doesn't live here anymore" crap? Only a complete and utter moron would think that such a lame ass trick would gain any traction. Come to think of it, she is a complete and utter moron. If Mrs. Krime wasn't backed by the Mason checkbook, she would be laughably irrelevant. Come to think of it, she is laughably irrelevant.

    2. Khoboken...you never fail to crack me up. I am so sick and tired of hearing that "less than 50%" crap John Kreim has resorted to. The point is that Mayor Zimmer and her allies swept the Mayor's race, the At-Large Council race and the BOE race. Less than 50%? What a complete pile of crap. Reform now has the Power! Rest assured, we will not abuse it like the Old Guard did for several decades. Finally, Right has conquered Might in Hoboken. It's nearly over for the corrupt old ways. The sweetest part of last night's event was that
      Witch Castellano's loss of support at Marine View. What a complete and utter repudiation of the nasty and vile antics of Castellano, Mason, Russo and Numb-Nuts Occhipinti. The voters have clearly spoken...NO MORE BS OBSTRUCTIONISM!!!

    3. None of those people think. Only a brain dead moron would still be backing Mason after all the shit that witch has pulled. So no, thinking is not part of the equation with any of them.
