Hoboken drew national media attention with the infamous Nazi Truck last November seeing coverage on the Huffington Post for the repeated display of a Nazi swastika all over town.  
Joe Branco a c0-campaign manager for the notorious Move Forward campaign denied approving the Nazi Truck although it made five trips to Hoboken including the night of the BoE election when it featured a Move Forward campaign ad of its candidates.
The three Move Forward candidates were swept by the Kids First ticket.
