Two weeks out and the election begins to turn ugly
Two weeks from Election Day with the all critical majority of the Hoboken City Council up for grabs and the mood is turning sour in the Darksider Old Guard camp.
Some of the most ugly votes in question on the last possible bidder in the eleventh hour to save Hoboken University Medical Center, repave Washington Street and to approve a 9-11 Memorial are ones Castellano cast since 2011 when she was last reelected. Castellano’s excuses don’t add up on any and hatred in two words explains it: Mayor Zimmer.
Carmelo Garcia the circus ringleader of Vision 20/20 completes a trifecta on that Russo faction ticket of its slate who love to get down and dirty in the mud and drag Hoboken down with it. As many know, Garcia has cost Hoboken taxpayers already $150,000 with his infamous “ethnic cleansing” civil lawsuit.
Garcia also is holding on the hook hostage the Hoboken Housing Authority which he financially ravaged and left in a seven figure deficit. (Eduardo Gonzalez previously wrote a letter praising his financial impact at the HHA while backing every Garcia proposed resolution.) Mister Carmelo would like to think he can con a jury he’s a million dollar victim but is there a paper trail problem not disimilar to the Bajardis? See: the Benchslapped Series.
The alliance rumored between Peter “Monarch Man” Biancamano and lame duck councilwoman Beth Mason is escalating. Biancamano has been seen around the Mason Civic headquarters and is believed by some to be among several candidates who will be seeing Mason family money hit their campaigns. The other two Old Guard candidate beneficiaries are thought to be Eduardo Gonzalez and Carmelo Garcia.
Biancamano is the Old Guard chosen successor to follow “Develop or Die” Beth Mason’s adage and he’s not said a solitary word about supporting the City’s legal efforts to kill the Barry family’s efforts to build the Monarch towers uptown. The Barry firm, Ironstate Development is also behind the Applied Companies and racheting out votes there for the BoE trustee Biancamano.
How much confidence should voters have Monarch Man will oppose any big developers when he can’t even voice it in his own backyard? Tiffanie Fisher highlighted her position on fighting for Hoboken people with this recent mailer. Here’s a screen shot of the mailer on Facebook:

He hasn’t said he’ll oppose the Monarch Project towers.|
As Hoboken winds down to Election Day, campaigns are mounting up and the soul for Hoboken, newcomer, Old Hoboken and other residents alike are the stakes in the November 3rd election.
Once you sell your soul to certain devils, you never get it back. Let the buyer beware.
