Beth Mason begins mayoral run with 2nd ward election celebration – in the 5th ward Fox Hills senior building
It’s not official but resident public space is being booked in the Fox Hills senior building for a celebration. The celebration is Beth Mason’s throwing herself a party for her 2nd ward re-election in the 5th ward! She’s calling it an inaugural party.
The practice of booking space for a political purpose, in this case an obvious kickoff for the 2013 mayoral race certainly falls outside the lines for the government building but there may be a loophole. A certain brotherly tag team from the 4th ward involved in local election dirty tricks has their grandmother in the building and are using her as the means for the Beth Mason entry.
Beth Mason can’t wait to drop another record setting seven figures she blew in 2009 seeking the mayor’s office and is sure to dig deep into the family wallet again. It’s begun.
But two full years before election season? Yes, it’s Beth Mason and she wants to get the senior votes for 2013. She’s willing to throw herself a 2nd ward party in the 5th ward, no matter how transparently bad such a move looks.
Talking Ed Note: The sheer vapidity of celebrating your re-election in another ward would seem insane to some, but this is Beth Mason we’re talking about and logic has nothing to do with it.
On a separate note, MSV received an email from a reader that Hoboken411 is reveling in joy today. For once it’s not a complete lie in its second hand typical no source reporting that some parents booed the mayor at the Hoboken High school graduation over some seconds, but not the minute the fanatically deranged anti-Zimmer smear king says.
If they are blaming the mayor for the drama queen theater director and “teacher” Paula O’haus, they need to learn the rules are governed by the state not City Hall. Another view is that the parents who are municipal employees are down on the mayor for her efforts at cost control.
Besides, there’s word on the street Paula O’haus has taken a job in Englewood Cliffs ending all her politically staged drama from the spring. She’s made it abundantly clear, she has no intention of following any rules under any superintendent past or present. She’s been very vocal and arrogant about it.
Best of luck to Englewood Cliffs, they’ll need it. Leopards don’t change their spots.
Update: The booing at the High School is said to have lasted several seconds initiated from the back of the auditorium by adults, not the students. Some of those adults are anti-Zimmer elements not over their political defeat re: Real Results and Beth Mason’s hard core old guard supporters on Democratic Committee.
Not much you can do with people who take election defeat so badly they politicize an apolitical event like children’s graduation. Unfortunate.
Hoboken Patch thought so little of it, there was nothing mentioned about the less than classy behavior.
