There’s two major offices up for election this year in the Mile Square City. First, the county freeholder seat with a critical June Democrat Primary and then the mayor’s seat in November. Based on MSV’s exclusive investigative report, the paths of the two senior elected officials are not likely to meet in any head to head face-off.
Some suggest it’s an unofficial but higher power, re: HudCo organized nonaggression pact while others say it’s a more Vulcan-like mind meld of the minds to take the more scenic road less traveled.
The MSV Premium issue examining Hoboken’s upcoming 2017 elections will be published on Monday. Sit tight and remember, Horsey is bringing election peace in our time.
|Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Freeholder Anthony Romano are expected on the 2017 ballot.
Here they were at City Hall in 2011 but City Hall is not their target this year.
According to a report; two arrests have been made in the fatal shooting of an 18 year old in Hoboken, also naming the victim who died in the hospital.Authorities arrested two suspects Wednesday in connection with the fatal shooting of a local teen the day before. According to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, detectives arrested Khalif Geiger, 20, of Jersey City, and a 17-year-old juvenile from Jersey City, in connection with the fatal shooting of Adrian Rivera, 18, of Hoboken. Prosecutors said that Hoboken Police Officers were dispatched to 300 Marshall Drive in Hoboken on a 911 call of possible gun shots in the area around 3:15 p.m. on Jan. 24.
An 18 year man was reported shot and killed in Hoboken yesterday according to a NJ.com story.
According to a statement by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office:“We are confirming that there was a fatal shooting in Hoboken,” said Ray Worrall, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office. “It was an 18-year-old male, and the investigation is ongoing.” The shooting occurred just after 3 p.m., on the 300 Block of Marshall Drive, a street within the Andrew Jackson Gardens public housing complex on the city’s western edge. The last homicide in Hoboken came in 2013 when three teenagers beat up a a homeless man in what is called a game of “knockout” where an unsuspecting victim is stalked and then punched. The man was homeless and died as a result of the attack and one of the there three teens was sentenced to confinement in the juvenile system.
|A fatal shooting involving an 18 year old male
occurred yesterday but details including the name
of the deceased remain unclear.
Talking Ed Note: There’s basic details of the story completely missing. No name of the deceased, his residence or anything involving the events that took place other than age, sex and cause of death.
One is the loneliest number but David Liebler and his civil litigation against the City of Hoboken is lonely no more. He’s been joined in a similar civil rights claim by well known Hoboken politico Perry Belfiore who filed a similar complaint after being ejected from the October 21, 2015 City Council meeting during public portion.
The ejections were related to mentions of Mayor Dawn’s husband, Stan Grossbard, ruled out of order by then City Council President Ravi Bhalla.
According to online records, a complaint on behalf of Belfiore was filed in NJ District Court on October 21, 2016 against the City of Hoboken and Councilman Ravi Bhalla. He is represented by Greg F. Paster & Associates.
Hoboken is bordering on January’s end but February brings with it Groundhogs Day.
For the politicos of the Mile Square universe this means time grows short.
November is a political lifetime off in the distance but the Freeholder race is pretty much determined in the June Democratic Primary. Anthony “Stick” Romano, the reigning incumbent is gearing up for another three year term.
Will he be flying solo?
|Hey the ref heard the bell. Mayor Zimmer let go of Stick.|
The rest of this story is MSV Premium and will be released on Monday.

Office of the Mayor announces:STATEMENT FROM MAYOR ZIMMER ON STORM & FLOODING “For the third time yesterday, our new H-5 flood pump, combined with our existing H-1 pump, kept western Hoboken dry through the kind of major storm that previously would have flooded our neighborhoods. But as we saw the river splash over the bulkhead along Weehawken Cove and fill the tracks in Hoboken Terminal, yesterday was also a reminder that we face a real flood risk not just from downpours, but from the river itself – and not only during hurricane season. That is why the Rebuild by Design project is so important, and I invite everyone to attend the public hearing on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the project on March 16. Thank you to the Office of Emergency Management, Police and Fire Departments, Environmental Services, and Construction Office for making sure we were prepared for yesterday’s storm.” A flyer with the latest updates on the Rebuild by Design project is available at:
“This bill was drafted after I noticed more and more residents in Hoboken and Jersey City using a bicycle through share programs or just buying one for personal use,” Chaparro said. “Given this change in the way that people travel, it is important to ensure that our driver’s education classes, tests, and manuals are updated to reflect the changing landscape of the roads. We need to work to eliminate fatalities and injuries of pedestrians and bicyclists in New Jersey, and by improving the education of new drivers, this bill is one way we can work toward that goal.”
