Tiffanie Fisher gave the first nomination- Kurt Gardiner. Seconded by Ravi Bhalla.
Next, Dave Mello nominated Frank Raia, Peter Cunningham seconded.
No nominations for Brian Assadourian.
Speech by Ravi, supports Brian but hears the will of the people and will give Kurt a chance (don't quote me).
Dave Mello, speaking for Pupie; "He's been a friend to me, not going to disrespect that... Frank Raia has been a friend to me and I appreciate the friendship and I think he's done a fine job..."
Peter Cunningham: " I seconded Mr. Raia's application for good reasons... my evaluation is based on experience, relationships and success... pulled in more funding relative to the other towns and successfully... relationships are important here... Kurt's application came in a little bit late... and I had given Mr. Raia my word that I had supported him... not going to let politics influence my decision. This is about what's best for Hoboken."
Jen Giattino: "Most people don't want to put in the time and the effort... and in particular, thank you for Mr. Raia..."
"Call the vote for Kurt Gardiner"
