GOTV Rally Tonight 7-10pm for Mayor Zimmer and Team 10th and Willow

Filed under: 10th & Willow,Hoboken — Tags: , , — TheBoken @ 2:20 PM

GOTV Zimmer Team 10th and Willow 10-30-2013

The election for Mayor and the three at large City Council candidates is less than a week away. The Leading Hoboken Forward Team of Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Councilman Dave Mello, Councilman Ravi Bhalla and Council-candidate James Doyle are looking to win this coming Tuesday and need your help if you are so inclined.

There is a GOTV Rally from 7-10pm tonight at 10th and Willow where you can have an appetizer and a drink and get your signs and campaign materials including green shirts while they last.

10th-willow

Editor’s Note:

TheBoken.com fully supports this ticket as the Zimmer team has accomplished a lot in 4 years by restoring balanced budgets to Hoboken, getting out from under the State Fiscal Monitor, saving Hoboken from $52 million dollars in bonds that could have defaulted by the HUMC  by saving and privatizing the Hospital, reduced taxes 12.5%, finished Pier C Park, built 1600 Park, renovated Church Square Park and many others, initiated Corner Cars, re-organized the top heavy Police and Fire Departments, ousted a corrupt Parking Director from a prior Administration that stole $600,000 in parking revenue, boosted Hoboken’s Shuttle Bus system, installed a flood pump in the most needed location first, and restored honesty and accountability to government just to name a few accomplishments.

The other slates challenging her in my humble opinion have failed to make the case to replace her and in some instances have misrepresented the facts about their prior records. Don’t forget Ruben Ramos under his service as City Councilman with the Mayor Dave Roberts Team created the 2008 fiscal crisis by approving underfunded budgets for many years and selling or Municipal Garage to pay salaries. There is one instance where a faction of the Tim Occhipinti campaign purportedly have committed libel and slander and as a result will be getting sued for defamation. This is the same campaign that in a juvenile fashion sent a letter to Giants QB Eli Manning’s Brother Peyton admonishing him for endorsing Mayor Dawn Zimmer for her support in fighting the Monarch Project where he lives. It was a low class move by low class candidate and proven obructionist. Hoboken needs serious leaders and clearly that is not Tim Occhipinti and they need fiscally responsible ones and that is clearly not Ruben Ramos.

Most importantly the opposing  slates don’t have the right plan going forward that represents the community as a whole or the skill sets and integrity to pull it off. The initial Vision 20-20 plan initial brochure called for more than doubling the size of the Projects in Hoboken. How could that possibly benefit anyone but developers? Both the Occhipinti and Ramos campaigns support this plan yet no final plan has been presented and vetted out by the public.  Zimmer has stated that until a real plan is in place that this should not move forward. This is the sort of reckless development would could expect to see if  Dawn Zimmer and her team were to lose.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer has a lot to run on her record with for re-election and Hurricane Sandy showed that she really cares about the community of Hoboken and its residents. Her plan to protect Hoboken from future storms is the most comprehensive plan but will take time to complete. Mayor Dawn Zimmer has persevered through the obstructionist tactics of her political adversaries and although she may not be perfect  (who is after all?)  she has the best character, integrity and proven track record of results to get the job done. She will need her slate  to maintain a 5-4 majority so I advise you vote across the board to continue the progress we have seen in Hoboken.

Tenth and Turtle Block Party in Hoboken July 4th 12pm-9pm

Two uptown Hoboken establishments, Tenth and Willow and Turtle Club are hosting their “Tenth and Turtle” 4th of July Block Party.   It is a “family-focused” event and will occur this Thursday (4th of July) on 10th Street between Park Ave and Willow Ave.  Both the Turtle Club and 10th And Willow will have beer gardens set up with BBQs, there will be tons of activities for children (bouncy waterslide, magician, face painter), and even bands playing.  The day will start at noon and continue until 9:00 PM, right before the fireworks begin.  Both establishments are very excited to provide a great daytime destination for their neighbors that don’t head out of town for the holiday.

We hope to see many of you there. This event is a big one for them and they generally have a very large crowd!

Former Curves Location in Hoboken is For Rent – Hoboken Curves Thrown to the Curve

Filed under: 10th & Willow,Closings,Hoboken,Hoboken Businesses — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 12:25 PM

Hoboken Curves- For Rent

Curves was formerly located at 168 1st Street  Hoboken, NJ but that location is now for rent. Hoboken does have a lot of fitness options and my take on curves from a male perspective is that Just maybe Curves  is more suited for a suburban mother than a city dweller. Perhaps the location did not get enough traffic. With more and more fitness options like Zumba fitness and rowing coming maybe these type of gyms aren’t the best business model for female Hobokenites. TheBoken.com is curious to see what comes in next at this location and sorry to see another business go. But hey, that is capitalism in action. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks to reader, “TheBankRobber” for this tip and photo.
