BoE Results, the winners and losers

MSV is awaiting the final count of outstanding provisional ballots today as many to put the final period on the BoE election earlier this week.  John Madigan needs almost all of them in any hope to overtake Rose Marie Markle for the remaining three year seat.

As noted earlier, the candidates almost to a person were sincere in their runs and spoke well on their respective positions.  There were no harsh words among them and one can hope they will stay involved and participate in the issues at the BoE in the future.  Hoboken needs their participation.

Check back this weekend as Da Horsey will provide some additional insight into the election results and what it means for Hoboken.  Some of you have already noted in the comments Hoboken411 failed yet again to steer Hoboken voters his way with his typical tired slanted coverage.  So yes, Perry Klausfurherer does make the list, but can you say how high?  Tune in this weekend to find out.

For now we’ll note Slash has put out a new song with Ozzy Osbourne.  It’s fitting in looking at the BoE and guessing who you think this one could be about.  It’s entitled “Crucify the Dead” as in you can’t do it.  MSV promises it won’t either.

Here’s Ozzy and Slash commemorating one BoE member who some are already speculating may not even want to finish out their term.  Part of the lyrics and the rest at the jump:

We had the same dream
Lived life to extreme
A loaded gun jammed by a rose
The thorns are not around your head
Your ego cut you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you’re dead, yeah


The fire started long ago
The flames burned out, still embers glow
So charred and black
There’s nothing left to burn, to burn

We had the same dream
Lived life to extreme
A loaded gun jammed by a rose
The thorns are not around your head
Your ego cut you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you’re dead, yeah

The future is unset in stone
Decisions past leave you alone
Betrayed us all with your own selfish greed, your greed, yeah
New soldiers now say
That your beggars collect
Re-crucified and paid by you
The thorns are not around your head
Your ego cut you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you’re dead, yeah

We were like brothers with the world in our hands
You always have too much to say
Someday you’ll look back and you’ll wonder why
You let it all slip away, yeah

Crucify the dead
Crucify the dead

The thorns are not around your head
Your ego cut you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you’re dead, yeah
