Mayor Dawn Zimmer - two events next week of note

Dear Friends,

I am writing to personally invite you to two very important
fundraising events next week.

Hoboken Charter School Fundraiser
Next Tuesday, September 18th
at the Turtle Club, 936 Park Avenue
6-9 PM   

As most of you know, Hoboken Charter School’s building was
badly damaged in a fire last week.  While insurance will cover
a great deal of the costs, there is immediate need for additional help. 
The Hoboken Rotary is sponsoring this event and the Turtle Club is
offering a complimentary beverage to anyone who donates $10
at the door.

Vote Yes for November Fundraiser
Next Thursday, September 20th
at Arthurs Tavern, 237 Washington Street
6-8 PM

The citizen sponsored election reform to consolidate municipal elections
on Election Day in November is critically important to the future of our town. 
Holding our elections on Election Day will empower Hoboken citizens
by increasing voter participation, reducing voter fatigue, reducing the
seemingly endless barrage of campaign literature and saving taxpayers money.

Unfortunately, the well financed enemies of reform are gearing up to oppose
this much needed reform.  Please help this citizen’s group by giving them
the resources they need to get these reforms enacted by the voters
this November.

The event will include light refreshments and open bar for beer and wine. 
The requested contribution is $100 ($150 for couples).

I will be attending both events and look forward to seeing many of you there.
