Countdown to the Hoboken BoE election

Forward Together BoE slate announces:

Dear friends and neighbors,

It’s just a few days until next Tuesday's November 8th election, and we’re working hard to spread the word to ensure high voter turnout! A School Board seat was decided by only 34 votes last year so your vote matters!

This year the board majority is at stake. We cannot return to the days of audit violations and educational dollars being spent outside the classroom.

Jennifer, Sheillah and Irene have spent years selflessly working to improve our schools. We need to elect them to keep building on the steady progress the district is making.

Most important is to cast your votes for Evans, Dallara and Sobolov 1-2-4 for Hoboken School Board. Polls are open from 6am-8pm and you can find your polling location here.

It's urgent to Get Out The Vote! It's as easy as messaging or emailing your friends to remind them how important this election will be. Let people know how many of your friends and neighbors are supporting 1-2-4!

On election day, be sure to wear a button or a t-shirt, and get a balloon or signfor your stroller at our election day HQ at 626 Bloomfield St. Also please consider volunteering an hour or two to help remind Hoboken to vote! We need to show Hoboken there's overwhelming support for Jennifer, Sheillah and Irene!

Don't despair if you won't be in Hoboken on election day! You can apply to Vote By Mail and, at the same time, vote in person at the County Clerk's Office until 3:00 p.m. Monday, November 7.

Finally, PLEASE forward this email to your friends and neighbors. Spread the word about Jennifer, Sheillah and Irene!

Mayor clarifies current robocall phone number in advocating for Forward Together BoE slate

From the desk of Dawn Zimmer:
Mayor  Zimmer Calls Attention to Incorrect Identifying Number on Her School Board Robo Call                                                                                                                                                                   
 The phone service, Global Marketing Research Systems(GMRS), that sent out  Mayor Dawn Zimmer's robo call today on behalf on the Forward Together School Board Ticket mistakenly used her City Hall number as the identifying phone number.    

The call was paid for by Zimmer's campaign fund and  no City resources were used. The call was neither recorded at nor sent from City Hall    GMRS  uses campaign phone numbers as the identifying phone number on robo calls.  "We mistakenly secured the phone number through a Google Search, confusing the Mayoral Facebook page for a Campaign Facebook page. We are sorry for any confusion we created," said Chris Stella,  Senior Research Project Director, GMRS.
