Mayor Zimmer Recommends Two Good Causes This Week

Mayor Dawn Zimmer has two worthy causes and fundraisers for your calendar this week...

Dear Friends,

I am writing to personally invite you to two very important fundraising events [this] week.

Hoboken Charter School Fundraiser
Tuesday, September 18th
at the Turtle Club, 936 Park Avenue
6-9 PM

As most of you know, Hoboken Charter School’s building was badly damaged in a fire last week. While insurance will cover a great deal of the costs, there is immediate need for additional help.

The Hoboken Rotary is sponsoring this event and the Turtle Club is offering a complimentary beverage to anyone who donates $10 at the door.

Vote Yes for November Fundraiser
Thursday, September 20th
at Arthurs Tavern, 237 Washington Street
6-8 PM

The citizen sponsored election reform to consolidate municipal elections on Election Day in November is critically important to the future of our town.

Holding our elections on Election Day will empower Hoboken citizens by increasing voter participation, reducing voter fatigue, reducing the seemingly endless barrage of campaign literature and saving taxpayers money.

Unfortunately, the well financed enemies of reform are gearing up to oppose this much needed reform. Please help this citizen’s group by giving them the resources they need to get these reforms enacted by the voters this November.

The event will include light refreshments and open bar for beer and wine. The requested contribution is $100 ($150 for couples).

I will be attending both events and look forward to seeing many of you there.


Mayor Dawn Zimmer
