I wanted to send you a quick note to make sure you heard
an important health notice and share some good news.
First and foremost:
Please make sure not to do any fishing or even let your
children touch the water from the Hudson River until
Due to a fire in NYC raw sewage has been released into the
river and exposure to the water could cause vomitting or
diarrehea according to testing by the NJ DEP.
More at the jump:
Invite and some good news:
Tomorrow, Sunday, July 24th, 2:00 pm:
Rally for Marriage Equality on
the southeast corner of Pier A
I joined Garden State Equality and Lamda Legal to host this
event on the first day same-sex couples in New York will have
the right to marry.
As Mayor Bloomberg recently said, “Near equality is not equality. Government either treats everyone the same, or it doesn’t.
And right now it doesn’t.”
Tomorrow will be cooler, so please come and voice your support
Save the date:
Thursday, August 18th:
Come join a new summer concert with the
NJ Symphony Orchestra on Pier A.
Finally, I want to thank all of you for your support on the hospital
and the many other achievements of the week.
At the State hearing on Thursday our community voiced
strong support for the sale of the hospital.
This enables us to jump another hurdle towards achieving
the miracle of saving the hospital and getting the City off
of the $52 million bond guarantee with the proposed sale
to the principals of Bayonne Medical Center.
The Council meeting was filled with successes this week including:
- Formally giving my Administration the tools and negotiating strength necessary to bring a park to Southwest Hoboken.
(As a result, I repurposed $3 million of county grant money towards the purchase of land in the Southwest)
- Legally approving corner cars, which has reached our
2-year goal of 1,600 members in only one year
- Moving the elections to November to reduce your
voter fatigue and increase voter participation
- Authorization of Class II Police Officers so Chief Falco can cost-effectively add more foot patrol to our City on busy
nights and during events
Stay cool and hope to see some of you tomorrow!
