One gal's musings on the Hoboken political scene
two council reform members are missing....
You know who else is missing? All the scum backing the other slate.
You mean Hoboken's first family of corruption, the stick it to taxpayers guy.....them ?
MSV is reporting that the OLD GUARD politicos have launched an intensive VOTE BY MAIL effort to try to gain control of the BOE and it's multi million dollar budget.
This is a big deal that more people should be aware of. Last year, the Reach Higher (reform) slate won in the machines. Then an hour later it was announced that two of the three OG candidates - disgruntled ex-BOE employee and reputed drug user John Madigan and inexperienced Brittany Murphy - moved to 1st and 2nd in total votes due to purchased votes, mostly via Votes By Mail, from low income residents of the housing authority and subsidized senior buildings. John Madigan received 500+ VBM's and Murphy received 400+. Enough to change the outcome of the election. The rest of the candidates received around 100. And the Russo and Ramos campaigns funded the majority of this. This could easily happen again.
Pupie's operation is back! Let's hope the council remembers this and quits singing his praises for running a sewer filled patronage mill.
