Dawn Zimmer Formally kicks off Hoboken Mayor Re-election campaign at Little Town NJ
Last night at Little Town NJ in Hoboken NJ, current Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced her re-election campaign in front of 125 core and new supporters. She introduced her running slate of Councilman Ravi Bhalla, Councilman David Mello, and long time community activist James Doyle as part of her City Council Slate to an enthusiastic reception.
Zimmer states that her slate is a team and all three council candidates need to be elected in November to continue the progress that has been made to date. The other candidates voiced their reasons for running and why they support the current Mayor.
Below is video highlights of the brief speeches by the Mayor and the three City Council candidates:
This group is opposed by the Ruben Ramos campaign which got their start a bit earlier with an HQ opening on July 22nd. No other slate has yet to throw their hat into the ring and filing dealing is September 3, 2013. Only until that date will the voters know if this is strictly a two-way race or something more complicated. The Mayor and City Council races are now on November in a winner take all format thanks to two ballot referendums that passed last year in an effort to increase voter turnout.
