Honest Democrats for Hoboken - The Slate: Vote Row C June 7th

The slate of "Hoboken Democrats for Honest Government" on row C in the June 7th primary election is a city-wide team of Democratic committee people that are dedicated to growing Hoboken's Democratic Party and representing a Democratic Party that they can be proud of.

They are running against the HCDO team headed by Michele Russo, 3rd Ward Councilman Mike Russo's mother and wife of formerly convicted Mayor Anthony Russo for corruption. A plea deal likely saved her from going to jail as well. The "Old Guard"are very organized and likely want to use this committee to wheel money from outside developer interests as they have done in the past to sell Hoboken out. Reformers and Good Governance advocates need to make sure this does not happen.

The slate of Honest Democrats is supported by Mayor Zimmer and her City Council Majority. They are also supported by the Hoboken Journal  (me) and other fine residents that know what is a stake. If Zimmer's slate on row C were to win that would send a very strong message to county and state bosses that want to use Hoboken to pilfer with huge over development at NJ Transit and Rockefeller Group uptown. We can't allow that to happen.

You can find the good guys and gals in Column C on June 7. Below is a list of candidates in chart form by Ward and District.
