Hoboken411 – Another Suspicious Dear Dawn Letter

It’s business as usual over at Hoboken411 as the smear merchant whips out the usual last minute dirty tricks heading into an election.  Does he ever get tired trying?  Apparently not – in the Hobo411 latest installment of attempts to deceive the Hoboken voter hatched from his usual “Dear Dawn” I really, really hate you letters.

Reader Jane emailed us about a strange one posted earlier this afternoon being touted by a Hoboken resident voicing her concerns about Mayor Zimmer.  Hobo411 says,
“Here’s a signed letter from someone offended by Zimmer’s attack.”

“Dear Dawn:
I was a resident of the 4th Ward and voted for you in 4 different elections, all the way up to mayor. At this time, you have completely lost my faith and any future support.

I saw your recent email stating that Real Results slate for school board intends to “starve the schools”. I am appalled at your lack of credibility at such a critical time for our schools. If you read the Real Results web page and/or literature or attended the candidates’ forum this past Monday at Stevens, you would have some clue about the Real Results platform. The goal of Real Results is to get more money to the children in our schools – not into the hands of overpaid and underperforming administrators who have bloated salaries and pensions.

You ran for mayor as a “reformer”; the Real Results team are also reformers —a group of enthusiastic young individuals who are committed to civic service and finding a better way to handle business. I voted for Kids First when they ran for school board and have been extremely unhappy with their “business as usual” approach. There are serious changes needed to improve our schools and Kids First has not been ready or able to make the tough choices. I believe that bringing the experienced individuals on the Real Results slate who have backgrounds in management and finance can only help our town.
Keep in mind that the candidates who are on the Real Results ticket, their supporters and families, are also your constituents. You can properly support your candidates without tearing down the other slate. Sending a mass email on the town’s time with your preferences for school board is inappropriate, at best. Tasteless, tactless and unacceptable also come to mind.
You are the mayor of this town – I ask you to act like it.

Gwyneth K. Murray-Nolan, Esq

First, let’s give Perry Klausfurherer some credit.  At least he didn’t go with the usual imaginary letter writer and make it up out of whole cloth like the infamous Louise F.  But who is Ms. Gwyneth K. Murray-Nolan, Esq?

Well she is a real, live Hoboken resident.  Congratulations Perry, you really got Da Horsey this time.  Or has he?  According to local tax records this is a real person.  Wow, this is pretty impressive.  Where does she live?  On Jefferson Street?  But what’s this?  Who else in lives in the same building?  Actually who lives in the same condo.

Well take a look at this picture from the Lincoln Dinner.

Is this the same Gwyneth in the photo bottom left?  And who’s that to her left in the picture?  Why it’s John Forsman of the Real Results slate who lives at the same address.

Her husband.

Da Horsey just thought you should know.  Sorry Perry, pwned yet again!

Talking Ed Note: In a brief conversation with Nathan Brinkman, the de facto campaign manager for Real Results, he confirmed that Gwyneth is in fact John’s wife. MSV would like to say we’ve met all the candidates on Real Results, including John Forsman and believe they are all good well intentioned people. In exposing the lack of transparency by Hoboken411, there’s no intent to suggest a spouse shouldn’t support their family in an election.
Nathan also wanted to emphasize that a swap out of this letter for one from Maureen Sullivan is not part of any conspiracy.  So noted.
