Tenant advocates have been fighting to get the issue on the ballot http://www.e-securemail.net/mail/link.php?M=134157&N=380&L=256&F=T , and the Hoboken public will be able to vote on election day on Nov. 8.

The debate, which is being organized by Hoboken’s Quality of Life Coalition, will take place at 7:30 at the Our Lady of Grace School Hall on Willow Avenue at 5th Street and moderated by Hoboken Reporter staff writer Ray Smith.

The two organizations will be represented respectively by Cheryl Fallick and Dan Tumpson for Hoboken Fair Housing, and Ron Simoncini and Joe Murray for Mile Square Taxpayers Association.

The issue of rent control has come up, after the city council amended the decades-old law last winter. http://www.e-securemail.net/mail/link.php?M=134157&N=380&L=257&F=T
Tenant advocates have been worried about the issue, among other reasons, because the new law institutes a two-year period of repose, http://www.e-securemail.net/mail/link.php?M=134157&N=380&L=258&F=T
no matter how long rent has been overcharged.

The general public is encouraged to submit questions in advance of the event by e-mailing info@qlchoboken.org
http://www.e-securemail.net/mail/link.php?M=134157&N=380&L=259&F=T. A panel of Quality of Life board members will select the questions. Unlike previous Quality of Life events of this type, no questions will be taken from the audience the evening of the debate. 
Admission is free; all are invited to attend.
