When it comes to debates, there are winners and losers.
Last night's QLC debate of 2nd, 5th and 6th Ward candidates was no exception. GA watched the Hudson County View report and spoke to several attendees.
The winner, according to Carmelo Garcia was Carmelo Garcia.
Unfortunately, Garcia didn't stay long enough at the debate to realize who he was debating. This is what he posted on Facebook today:
|Earth to Carmelo...|
"After two impactful debates where Mayor Zimmer and her candidate councilperson tried to excuse their lack of representation..."
Huh? Is Carmelo punch-drunk on Happy Meals? Have those freebie Dunkin Donuts rotted his brain? Too many trips to Target, CVS and ShopRite?
Maybe he'd better check his wire. Surely Garcia taped Mayor Zimmer "debating" him at the Elk's Club and Hudson Reporter.
Check your wire, Carmelo!
GA is astounded at the chutzpah... The guy who fled the debate after 10 minutes is criticizing his opponents' "lack of representation." Ummm, she was there. You weren't. Garcia's empty chair spoke volumes about his "lack of representation" on that dais.
Needless to say, Carmelo's assessment about Carmelo is, in my opinion, way off.
GA gives the winning performance of the night to Monarch Man.
Monarch Man was simply artful; his eyes darted down to some secret, scripted developer code for "shut the fuck up" when asked his opinion on the Monarch project. Monarch Man leaped over the broken developer agreement in a single bound, then pirouetted into a blame game attacking the City and Planning board.
Monarch Man's avoidance of the words, "I oppose the Monarch project" and "the developer MUST honor their agreement with the City of Hoboken" was so complete, GA almost forgot how many times we've been fucked over by developers' broken promises.
Monarch Man supports "open space."
That's nice. When Tiffanie Fisher was fighting for it, where was Monarch Man?
