County legislator candidates file for Freeholder
Yesterday was the filing deadline for Freeholder and as the clock wound down, the end of week announcement by candidate Phil Cohen put any possible Ruben Ramos candidacy out of its misery.
Ramos had been trying to sell county leaders on backing him saying he was earning support but in the end no one bit and worse, Phil Cohen locked up the big guns as exclusively reported by MSV last Friday.
Freeholder Anthony “Stick” Romano has filed to defend his two term seat while Ramos acolyte and 5th ward perennial council candidate Perry Belfiore tossed his hat in the ring joining Phil Cohen in another three way Hoboken race.

A source close to the Belfiore campaign acknowledged it submitted over 200 petitions.
