MSV: now over 3,000,000 served. Thanks Hoboken!

In a little over four years, this website originally set out to give back to the town for a few months in the summer of 2009 leading into the November election.  Deeming the work “the experiment” there was no contemplation the Mile Square laboratory would go much further.

Da Horsey had no idea MSV would land up becoming the biggest website covering Hoboken government, politics and corruption. It’s been no small surprise the site has also generated the most comments in the Hoboken blogosphere with no censorship, Masonista sponsored or otherwise. Read More...

It’s official: Hoboken welcome your new Councilman Jim Doyle

A public ceremony is scheduled this Saturday at Stevens with political glitterati aplenty expected to attend the inauguration of Mayor Dawn Zimmer and council members Ravi Bhalla, Dave Mello and Jim Doyle.

According to an unconfirmed report, Jim Doyle has been sworn-in and now constitutes an important vote on the City Council filling the ninth seat empty for more than a year when the Mason family underwrote an estimated six figures (or more) to stop his original appointment more than a year ago.
