Anthony Romano playing it cool in the Hoboken mayoral heat

Hoboken’s mayoral race, already hotter than Savannah asphalt with the Feds blazing through its cyberspace is getting a tad hotter with the dance of its Freeholder, Anthony Romano.

Yesterday, Max Pizarro at PolitickerNJ reported Romano is putting out “feelers” and weighing a run for Hoboken’s top government gig as mayor.

In a phone interview late last night, Romano played a potential run somewhat coy saying it wasn’t him who reached out to PolitickerNJ.  As to the rumor he would make a mayoral bid he keenly observed, “It’s a rumor.”

Anything else?
“I’m honored that people have mentioned my name.”

Have you spoken to Mayor Zimmer?

How about Ruben Ramos (announced mayoral candidate)?
“Not within the last couple of days, no.”

Freeholder Anthony Romano and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno presided over the swearing-in
of City Council members back in July 2011.

Talking Ed Note: If Da Horsey was one to lay the bet rather than be the object of bettors, we’d know which way to go.  If this was a filly out for a run, well that’s an entirely different question.

Either way, Romano’s dance will cause some agitation.  He was not aware of the dance of the Feds on MSV but maybe the Hoboken agita here yesterday was slightly distilled with the heat.  Let the hangovers begin.
