A few words and ideas on the event tonight at Room 84 from Eric Kurta
Moving Hoboken Forward
After nearly two decades of fighting to reform Hoboken’s political system, I have decided to run for City Council in the 1st Ward. This past week, candidates were required to submit nominating petitions from registered voters in the ward to qualify for the ballot. I’m proud to say that we got more signatures than our opponent, meaning the support of the community is clearly in our corner.
The momentum continues to build with incredible articles about the election. Over the weekend, theHoboken Reporter quoted me describing the key difference from my opponent: “[She] wants things to go back to the way they were 20 or 30 years ago. I’m looking forward. She’s looking backward.” Last week they also published my letter to the editor criticizing the council for not passing the anti-wheeling ordinance which would have taken away the ability of some individuals to launder money through PACs. And, just this week, the Jersey Journal commented on our cunning use of signs.
To keep the energy going, I would like to remind you about our fundraiser tonight, March 24th, 7-9pm at Room 84 (84 Washington St). It is going to be an incredible event with many special guests. I hope to see you there.
