1st ward council candidate Eric Kurta: Stop the grandstanding roadblocks on Hoboken Parks

Kurta for Council announces:

STATEMENT FROM 1st WARD COUNCIL CANDIDATE ERIC KURTA ON PARKS
I am proud that Mayor Zimmer’s bond ordinance to acquire more parks in Hoboken has passed the City Council. Her parks proposal is an important part of a much larger plan to make Hoboken more family-friendly.

However, it is disheartening that political grandstanding of a few councilmembers who needed clarification of the bond process and their legal responsibility jeopardized this sorely needed public good. If we genuinely want to improve our city and keep growing families from looking for greener pastures, we need to allocate more parks now. Delays must not be tolerated.
