Take time out & vote for the candidates who will make a change in the city council

Dear Editor:

For over 20 years I have worked for reform in Hoboken as an activist in the community as a member of the city council and as a mayoral candidate. In every role I’ve tried to understand and support all residents of Hoboken as we work together to improve our community. It has often been a difficult road, but in every case I was surrounded by people who believed that citizens, working together can make a difference in the way that the government affects our lives.

In one or another of those roles, I have worked with or against most of the City Council candidates. And so, in the past few months many people have asked my opinion concerning the candidates in the council elections on May 8.

I have replied by asking them to please come out and vote for Ron Rosenberg in the 1st Ward; Beth Mason in the 2nd; Frank Raia in the 3rd; Dawn Zimmer in the 4th; Peter Cunningham in the 5th and William Noonan in the 6th.

Many of the candidates I’m supporting have worked as volunteers in the community, speaking out for improvements in government operations and transparency, for care in budgeting, for open space and against the kind of unplanned, unchecked development which is eroding the quality of life for all of us. All of these candidates have reached out and supported good candidates. All of these candidates represent a positive change in the city council, and it’s time for a change. And all need your support. Please make the time to vote this Tuesday.
