Sign of the Times: Kids First Celebrates the Sweep

Last night dozens of Hobokenites came out to share in the grassroots victory of Kids First sweeping the BoE election against the monied Move Forward slate backed by Frank "Pupie" Raia and Beth Mason.  

Even with word a recount request is expected on December 5th by fourth place finisher Liz Markovitch, spirits were high and laughter was in the air.

How sweep it is!

BoE trustees Irene Sobolov and Theresa Minutillo hugged it out
with trustee-elect Jean Marie Mitchell.

Talking Ed Note: There was nothing but positives shared through the night with Mayor Zimmer and council members Ravi Bhalla, Peter Cunningham and Jen Giattino joining dozens of other Hoboken residents toasting the win.

No fear and trepidation was spoken by anyone regarding the recount request and it's viewed as perfunctory nothing more although a real lawyer will be paid.  If it isn't part of a retainer in Beth Mason's allowance money, well bill her hourly for the impending defeat anyway!

Kids First is done with the broom and is handing it over to Beth Mason cuz she just got swept!
