An Earwitness tells GA that two ex-Hoboken officials were spotted in the crowd at Lola's, celebrating with 2nd Ward candidate Peter Biancamano at his kick-off: former Construction Code Official Al Arezzo and former Director of Parking Utility John Corea.
True or false? GA's earwitness says "true."
If so, those two are a "Killer Combo!" Here's another "Killer Combo:"

This photo was taken at 6th Ward candidate Carmelo Garcia's Kick-off, attended by Peter Biancamano. (Okay so, GA swapped out Anthony Romano for Carmelo Garcia in the photo, but aren't they a "Killer Combo?")
Speaking of 6th Ward candidate Carmelo Garcia....
An interesting point came to light in a dicussion about the free floating pool offered to Hoboken in 2000, that floated to Brooklyn in 2004.
|Hoboken lost this free pool|
As reported on March 5, 2004 in The Hudson Reporter's, " 'Our pool has floated to Brooklyn' Pols point fingers as free pool possibility passes ":
The on-again, off-again concept of bringing a permanent floating swimming pool to Pier C Park appears to be off again, as the charity foundation that was donating the pool has reached an agreement with Greenpoint, Brooklyn instead.... In December of 2000, former Mayor Anthony Russo held a press conference to announce that an Olympic-sized municipal swimming pool, to be donated by the Neptune Foundation of New York, would be the "crown jewel" of the new plans for Pier C Park. The pool value was worth approximately $2 million. When the Roberts administration came into office, the plans for the pool were put on hold. According to city officials, there were concerns that the pool would be too large for Pier C, and that getting Department of Environmental Protection permits could be challenging.Ummm, would someone like to explain how a floating pool could be "too large" for the Hudson River?
Never mind. So would anyone like to guess WHO in the Roberts Administration was the Director of Recreation "when plans for the pool were put on hold"?
