|Sponsors adorn the cup... will they be reported on Romano2017 ELECs?|
It's one thing to let a secret out of the bag - it's quite another to print your big secret on a cup!
Anthony Romano is coyly building a war-chest to tackle Mayor Zimmer, while asking donors to make checks payable to "Romano for Freeholder." Well, that's my opinion.
Anthony Romano needs campaign cash like an amputee needs rubber crutches.
According to New Jersey Watchdog, Romano collected a $122,312.40 pension (wow!) in 2014, lives in public housing (wow!), owns a thriving bar business on Washington Street, owns Hoboken real estate...
|NJ.com: The list, culled from state Treasury Department data, included 1,988 retired public workers at the close of 2014.|
Anthony Romano's got plenty of money to self-finance - he even carries a $77,600 outstanding obligation to Romano for Freeholder!
|Romano for Freeholder's last ELEC filed - General Election, 11-day pre-election- June 24, 2014|
So, Romano's begun fundraising, he's hired talent, Pablo Fonseca (as reported on Hudson County View) while election day (November 7, 2017) is 1 year, 8 months and 9 days- away.
Oh yeah, since 2011 he has filed under "Romano for Freeholder." Now he's running as "Romano2017"- no more "Freeholder."
Did we really need that tattletale cup to tell us that Romano2017 was a mayoral campaign?
But, in case anyone didn't get it, just ask the Tattletale cup bartender, who introduced himself on the Chamber Train as "Anthony Romano's Chief-of-Staff" and loudly bad-mouthed Romano's next opponent, Mayor Zimmer.
Yep, the obnoxious loud mouth bartender was heard trash-talking Zimmer on issues from flood protection to Washington Street redesign, or "ripping Zimmer at length" as one witness put it.
If Pablo is reading this- you may want to reconsider your choice of "Chief of Staff." Give me a call.
Speaking of the Tattletale cup, did you notice one curious sponsor- a subsidiary of a huge New Jersey realtor-landlord. GA means huge.
A friend who noticed this sponsor said, "I am surprised they allowed their name on that cup. While Romano and Branco are politicos, they are a major property owner of major import in the region. This cup triggers an ELEC event."
"This cup triggers an ELEC event."
WOW. I'll have to have a conversation with my source, Deep Cup.
