City Council candidate Joshua Einstein campaign Launch

Joshua Einstein for Hoboken City Council announces:

Einstein for Hoboken
Campaign Launch Event

Einstein for Hoboken invites the people of Hoboken to participate in the campaign launch event Saturday, July 8th at 4pm in the backyard of Hoboken Hothouse (200 Monroe St) - the first of many events in support of Joshua Einstein’s run for Hoboken City Council. The campaign launch will include grilled food, an address by the candidate as well by a representative of True Mentors, an amazing local non-profit that is the only one on one mentoring program for children in the Mile Square City. Funds will not be raised for the campaign at this event, however donations to True Mentors are encouraged.

“This is an opportunity for the Hoboken community to come, listen, and dialogue about the challenges and opportunities our city faces as well as to support a terrific local non-profit,” stated Einstein. He continued “leadership is not about being frozen into arcane dogmatic positions or forced into narrow political tribes and teams, it’s about exposing people to new ideas and ways of tackling problems to improve lives and that’s why I wanted a representative of True Mentors to speak about the amazing and unique work they do with Hoboken’s children.”

Einstein has stirred the local political pot by being the first City Council candidate independent of a Hoboken political faction to declare his candidacy and the only registered Republican in the race to loudly and proudly embrace the GOP label. In fact, Einstein was recently elected to be one of Hudson Counties representatives to the New Jersey Republican State Committee, garnering over 1,300 votes. “I’m a proud Republican and I have many liberal friends who also understand the fiscal road our city is on, the stagnant policies that continue by inertia, and ignoring the needs of the majority of people in Hoboken is the wrong path to go down,” Einstein said. He continued “that’s why I’m happy to invite everyone to come and discuss the issues they believe are facing our city and areas that they see need change. I know no two people are ever going to see eye to eye on every topic and I don’t expect every voter to agree with every policy stance I have taken, but I always enjoy exchanging out of the box ideas, learning new perspectives, and brainstorming solutions.”

The Einstein for Hoboken campaign launch event is scheduled for July 8 at 4pm at Hoboken Hothouse. All are welcome.
