Oh no, follicle-fans... say it ain't so!
The best-coiffed politico in Hoboken tells MSV he is no longer in the running for Freeholder!
I for one, am extremely disappointed. He was so fluffy.
Here's what sources tell GA. Perry Belfiore (a.k.a. 'The Hair') was only a "placeholder" until Ruben Ramos made up his mind to get in... the idea was to 'scare' Romano out of the race, and once Romano was out, Belfiore would drop out, too and Ruben would come in. But... it didn't work out that way. Romano stayed in the race, and Belfiore saw he was only relevant if he got out and could broker something for himself.
So GA hears.
Had things gone differently, and Ruben had come in, GA hears Ramos would have gotten Fulop's endorsement- not Cohen. Fulop is all about consolidating power to run for governor, thinks he'd gain 'more' from Ruben, who's close to Stack, Albiez and has connections in Patterson.
Hmmm! Well, GA thinks Phil Cohen is the MAN. Go, Phil!
Backing Romano are Mason, Russo and Raia.
Not backing Romano is Ruben, who still blames Romano for not supporting his mayoral run, and considers him a Zimmer-guy.
Oh, brother. In the words of Harry S. Truman (sort of): You want a friend at Hoboken City Hall? Get a dog.
I for one, am sad about the Hair Loss.
Hair Loss is always tragic. Especially when premature. Hair Loss closer to Election Day would have left a bald spot on the ballot--preferable, in GA's opinion.
|Not as fluffy as the competition, but ready to cut Hoboken's share of County taxes.|
