Beth Mason pumps $5,400 into PU coffers on Election Day


That makes former 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason the largest single donor to the failed Parents United campaign.

$5,400 from a single donor is still below the maximum allowable contribution for a joint candidates committee of 3 (3 x $2,600= maximum allowable) under NJ campaign finance law.

Nevertheless, it's a lot of loot.  

This big-bucks support from 2-time mayoral-loser and Zimmer-nemesis Mason, indicates that in spite of her political radioactivity, she still wants a voice in Hoboken elections, to influence outcomes in favor of  Dark Side candidates.

Note, Councilwoman Mason did not leave Hoboken politics by choice;  she declined to seek a 3rd City Council term when thousands of damaging emails became public in Bajardi v Pincus. 

For example, had Mason decided to run in 2015, she would have been forced to answer how her "business partner" had obtained 60,000 emails exchanged between Mayor Zimmer/Hoboken Municipal Hospital Authority and the hospital buyer, HoldCo, during the sale of Hoboken University Medical Center.  


In fact, numerous Bajardi v Pincus emails between Beth Mason's "business partner," and her political operatives show how Councilwoman Beth Mason tried to destroy the successful sale of the City's public asset, the hospital, to a private entity in order to hurt Mayor Zimmer politically.



Had Beth Mason succeeded, had she tanked the HUMC sale, the City of Hoboken would have defaulted on a $52M municipal bond,  been forced into  bankruptcy, our bond rating would have gone to junk status, 1,200 HUMC jobs would have been lost, municipal taxes would have tripled or else, a massive layoff of city workers and a degradation of city services.

The amount of pain that Councilwoman Beth Mason tried to bring Hoboken residents simply to hurt Mayor Zimmer politically shows, in my opinion, a level of sociopathy that disqualifies her from ever holding elected office.

Plain and simply: the Bajardi v Pincus emails have destroyed Mason's political viability in Hoboken.

Here's the $5,400 question: was the ape "working" when he pointed his flashlight app into the eyes of the Forward Together candidates at the QLC debate?  

Was the flashlight dirty trick assigned, an effort to help PU?



Well, that's a matter of opinion.  On that subject...

Here's the opinion of the ape's QLC debate flashlight victim, who sent GA the following:

Can't believe she still sending me this shit! Had enough of her ghouls at the forum!

  1. Mason's $5400 stands out but so does candidate Jessica Nelson's $5000 contribution and the $5000 contribution from her running mate Jennifer Rossini. Can't recall any past BOE candidates ever making such big contributions to their campaigns. Can you? Next to those Frank Raia's $2500 contribution looks like a paltry sum.

    1. It's odd. Makes you wonder if the Trojan horse slate got un poco contribution from HoLa trustees to make el lawsuit go vamos. Nothing illegal there if so. Nada! It occured to me their only specific platform issue was to make el lawsuit go vamos. That was it. That was their #1 platform issue. They didnt know squat about anyhting else, including the high school. NEVER bothered to read the budget. The rest of their platform boilerplate rhetoric about stakeholders, bla bla bla. SO glad that trojan horse got stopped at the gate!

  2. GA, why do you assume that Mrs. Mason is done with local politics? She wouldn't be investing $$ in local School Board races if she was done. With the hope of a place in the Clinton or Sweeney administrations gone she has nowhere to pursue her dreams but here.

    I expect Mrs. Mason is at least 50/50 to re-emerge as a mayoral candidate next year. Zimmer/Mason III. It won't be a classic like Ali Frazier but don't be surprised if it happens.

    1. That would be interesting, for sure. Mason's got more skeletons than the Paris catacombs, but you have a point-- her cadre of parasitic operatives need her to run for something so they may to continue to suckle her wallet. Of course, she is allowed to pursue her dream, no matter how impossible. To dream the impossible dream....

    2. How could Mason possibly be delusional enough to run for mayor again? I don't know. But I am not counting her out. I just tend to agree with those who believe she is going elsewhere to live out her political dreams.

  3. What did they possibly spend $17,900 on? They had one awful mailer. So last minute election day contribution.... money to pay people to vote so the results would look even worse than they did? $5400 buys you 108 voters and up to 324 votes based upon last year's price...

  4. I think you can be pretty sure the $$ went to buy votes as usual. The # of bought and paid for VBM's was down but far from gone. The mailer, other print materials, internet ads, tshirts etc probably cost about $10,000 - $12,000. That leaves $6,000 - $8,000 for GOTV (i.e buying votes). Given the GOTV counts from the suspect districts that seems about right.

  8. There was some kind of film shoot happening at Mason's little shop of horrors at 1200 Washington today. Wonder if that income will show up on their anemically fictitious 990 form. Or, maybe, it was the filming of some puff-piece for the Masons and whatever unfortunate they are trying to catapult into office? Why are they still here? Don't they have an inn to run into the ground in Virginia?
