5th ward Councilman Peter Cunningham expresses gratitude to constitutents

From the desk of Councilman Cunningham…

Dear Editor,

We did it – again!  I extend many thanks to everyone who came out and
voted this Tuesday to affirm that we are moving Hoboken forward.
Thankfully, we succeeded despite the continuous barrage of negative
campaign tactics by my opponents.  They tried to divide our community
by saying I was divisive and out of touch. But the voters, volunteers
and contributors from across the ward came out May 10th to recognize
our achievements by an overwhelming margin.  I am proud that we stayed
positive and remained focused on the issues that matter most: the
budget, our taxes, good government without corruption, and providing
new amenities to benefit all.  I am most proud of the diverse support
that I received throughout the entire Ward. Many of you know who you
are. I cannot thank you enough for the trust you have placed in me.

Do we still have a lot of work to do?  Of course we do.  And you can
be sure that I will get it done…done right and balanced, every step of
the way.

As usual, the campaign experience left an indelible mark. I learned so
much from the hundreds and hundreds of doors knocked on in the 5th
ward, and deeply appreciate all those who extended their endorsements,
from the Administration to the numerous leaders within our many
communities.  I was cautiously confident that we could do it on
Tuesday as we took a very calculated approach, and we executed our
plan; but was also mentally prepared for a runoff.  I am so pleased
that the election is over. Now, we can focus on passing the budget,
bringing taxes down, and delivering a higher level of service to our

I extend many thanks to all involved in the campaign, and recognize
that my family is the cornerstone to my success.  Thank you, thank
you, thank you!
