Folks, the coming election cycle could get interesting.
If this Earwitness rumor is true, former Assemblyman Ruben Ramos will be running a full slate of ward candidates to: (1) avenge his loss of the mayoral race in 2013, and (2) trounce Reform incumbents for control of the City Council.
It's no secret that Ramos blames Tim Occhipinti's "One Hoboken" ticket for blowing his mayoral dreams. He does believe but not for Tim's late arrival in the race, he would be Hoboken mayor. Hence, my Earwitness says the Ramos slate plans to 'take out' Timmy Occhipinti (4th Ward) and Peter Biancamano (2nd Ward).
Who would Ramos run against Biancamano?
An Earwitness tells GA that Brian Murray's wife may run in the 2nd Ward. Is it true? Ramos pal Carmelo Garcia, is rumored to be taking on popular 6th Ward incumbent Jen Giattino.What a coincidence! Reports that a nasty whisper campaign is being run against Giattino in 6th Ward Applied Housing. How nasty? Oh, that Giattino wants to boot out long-term residents.
It gets more interesting.
|Timmy could have stopped flooding. FOR REAL!|
Cryan was campaign manager for Timmy's One Hoboken.
It makes sense that Ramos would oppose Cryan but... why back Beth Mason? Here are 20,000 reasons why Ramos should blame Mason for his 2013 election defeat:
It could only be the big bags of money that Mason always brings to the table.
In that case, if Mason is making deals with Ramos, what's in it for her?
So... if this "Ruben slate" rumor is true, grab your popcorn.
