HOBOKEN – Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Hoboken’s first female mayor who has served in that capacity since 2009, will kick off her reelection campaign on Wednesday, Aug. 14, during an event held at the restaurant Little Town NJ, the mayor said today.
Zimmer will face state Assemblyman Ruben Ramos Jr. in the election, which will be held Nov. 5. Ramos is running on the Vision for Hoboken slate, along with council-at-large candidates Laura Miani, Joe Mindak, and Eduardo Gonzalez. Zimmer has not officially announced her ticket. The city’s current sitting councilmen-at-large, Ravi Bhalla and David Mello, have both expressed interest in joining the mayor’s slate again, but have come just short of declaring their candidacy. The mayor is expected to reveal her slate, which may include a third candidate to fill a currently empty seat, at the event.
The event at Little Town NJ will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The restaurant is co-owned by Albie and Chris Manzo of the reality show “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” – Dean DeChiaro
