Disenfranchising the vote and electorate

We’re in the final stages of what by all appearances will be one of the dirtiest Hoboken elections in recent memory.

One keen lifetime resident noted it’s the back end of the slime oozing out creating a damning impression whereas in the past, the slime reared its head early.

That balanced perspective aside, it’s taken many aback. The pernicious lies and putrid sludge oozing across the Mile Square City have centered on Councilwoman Jen Giattino and a late hit job surfaced on the beloved Beth Mason hate site, Hoboken411. There’s more to these morsels (and finprints) of corruptocrat action. Take a bow dirt bags. Read More...


Eduardo Gonazalez text’s you for votes: whether you like it or not

The Old Guard is not joking about this election. They’re pulling all the stops, legal, illegal and shades of illegalities running rampant as we crawl to Election Day.

Speaking of illegalities, MSV requested comment from the Ruben Ramos campaign on the descent of election investigators on 400 First St. based on the breaking report on Grafix Avenger yesterday. In that GA updated report, the headline says:


According to witnesses, Mike Russo, was screaming at Charlie “Blue” the Chief Inspector under John Bryzowski, the Acting Superintendent at the Board of Elections.  With Mike Russo was Mama, Kim Glatt and Jay Yacker, George DeStefano, and Ruben Ramos‘ attorney.  Kim Glatt argued that they needed to know the difference between a ‘challenge’ and an ‘investigation’, then demanded specific information on which buildings were being challenged (or investigated).   Matt Calicchio was there screaming… 

Well over 50% of registered voters in 400 First St. voted by absentee (Vote-by-Mail) ballot.
How did such a Festivus miracle occur and can anyone offer a scientific explanation for this Flo? Read More...


Hoboken411’s Perry Klaussen put on defamatory warning in scurrilous attack on Tiffanie Fisher


Hoboken411 is dead to most residents of the Mile Square City although Beth Mason hasn’t hosted the funeral yet for her “favorite new site.”

Most in Hoboken are all too familiar with the notorious Perry Klaussen of Hoboken411 but what’s news is a legal warning issued for an alleged defamatory attack by him today on council candidate Tiffanie Fisher.

Fisher is a second ward City Council candidate primed to challenge for the seat occupied by lame duck Councilwoman Beth Mason.  As many are aware, there’s an election for Hoboken council seats this Tuesday. Read More...


Carmelo Garcia deals the race card from the bottom of the deck


If Hoboken isn’t ready for the Old Guard Russo faction Carmelo Ticket using the dirtiest tactics in this election, well sit down and brace yourself.

Its’ arrived.

Councilwoman Jen Giattino saw her Facebook page assaulted today with a phony ad claiming both her campaign and Peter Cunningham’s campaign were looking to hire “light skinned or causation” workers.

The earthy misuse of the word Caucasian parallels what Carmelo Garcia wrote in his “ethnic cleansing” lawsuit – “white” persons. Read More...


Final verdict: Beth Mason going out ugly

=&0=&: =&1=&   

More ugly mailers, of the Beth Mason – Finboy variety riddled with lies similar to the Nazi Truck in 2012 right in the smack of Hurricane Sandy.

Of course Beth Mason has to go out ugly. How could it be any other way?

Grafix Avenger reports the hit job mailers against Councilwoman Jen Giattino have reached a trifecta. MSV got wind from a reader earlier but thought the phony “she voted for assault weapons” photo was actually a joke and not an actual mailer. (Assault weapons not being legal anywhere in America, how could it be anything but a joke, right?) Read More...


Guest of the Stable: “Yo Gregory!” – not your typical vote story

A Scary Get Out the Vote Story


It’s really hard to generate interest in a school board election, especially when there are no state or federal elections happening at the same time. But the school board has elections every year and this is one of those low interest years.

In 2011, the last time there was an election like this, all three reform candidates were defeated. Who defeated them? Candidates financed by people with a history of redirecting school funds to friends and family. And this year is shaping up to be a repeat performance. Read More...


Requests for Hoboken’s official ballot on Tuesday

MSV has received some requests to highlight the ballot for Tuesday’s November election.

Locally, each of the Hoboken wards will offer a choice to make plus you have the Board of Education race. There’s also a true representative up for Assembly in Annette Chaparro.

In addition, you have one decision to make for County Executive (which is how they like it).

So here’s how your ballot will look in the Third Ward (only for Vote-by-Mail): At the voter machines: MSV officially endorses write-in candidate Solomon Dwek and urges you to add criminal diversity to Hoboken.
Remember, diversity makes our community stronger.

Nora Jacobson’s unreleased documentary on Hoboken’s Waterfront Referendum screening Friday night

Hoboken Fair Housing Association announces:

Hoboken Fair Housing Association (HFHA) proudly presents: Nora Jacobson’s unreleased documentary on Hoboken’s Waterfront referendum

The short documentary tells the story of Hoboken residents fighting to preserve their community from devastating over development. It highlights both the universal and timeless story of ordinary citizens trying to organize and fight for their right to have a democratic say, through referendum, in a world where those with the money, in this case developers, normally win by using their money to shape the judicial and electoral process with lawyers and propaganda. The film demonstrates how citizens can use democracy to defend themselves.

After the film Nora will share her impressions of what she witnessed and how it shaped what she created. Although the events took place decades ago, as another election season is upon us, the importance of democracy and making our voices heard is still very relevant today. The citizens won the referendum election by just 12 votes underscoring how every vote truly does count.
