Forward Together BoE slate: The threat to our schools

Forward Together announces:



Dear friends and neighbors,

If you were at the Board of Education Candidates Forum on Thursday night, you witnessed firsthand the enormous threat facing the Hoboken Board of Education.

You saw our uninformed opponents spend two hours bashing our schools. But you also saw Jennifer, Sheillah and Irene three passionate, intelligent individuals who have spent years selflessly working to improve our schools on your behalf. We must get them elected them in order to keep building on the steady progress the district is making.

Let’s go Forward Together!

We need to raise $4000 by Wednesday, October 26th, in order to reach as many voters as possible with a city-wide campaign mailer in time for the November 8 General Election. If you haven’t contributed: please, now is the time. If you’ve already contributed, then we urge you to consider an additional contribution. No amount is too small and every contribution counts in our all-volunteer, grassroots campaign. You can contribute online or mail a check (payable to Forward Together Hoboken) to Forward Together Hoboken, c/o 515 4th Street, Apt. 309, Hoboken, NJ.

In addition to contributing to the campaign, you can help in lots of different ways! You can “like” us on Facebookfollow us on Twitter, put a campaign sign in your window, canvass with a candidate, volunteer on election day and tell your friends why it’s important to vote 1-2-4 on November 8th!

Get Out the Vote on Election Day: This is the most important thing you can do!  It can be as simple as emailing your friends and talking to your neighbors to let them know that you’re supporting 1-2-4! We need to make sure voters don’t forget to vote 1-2-4 on Election Day. Also, just one or two hours of your time on election day will make all the difference in this election.


Register to Vote By Mail: If for any reason you can’t vote in person on November 8, you can apply to Vote By Mail. To receive your ballot by mail, your application must be received by the County Clerk seven (7) days prior to the election. A voter may also apply in person to the County Clerk until 3:00 p.m. the day before the election.
