Ready or not here it comes

Tonight it's the Hoboken City Council meeting and the countdown to Election Day means the old Mile Square City brawling will erupt sooner than later with all the marbles on the line.

Hoboken sits in a unique vantage point. Four major mayoral campaigns are vying for the top prize and three at-large council seats added to the mix makes for a volatile mixture.

Three of the four major mayoral candidates sit on the dais: Council members Mike DeFusco, Ravi Bhalla and City Council President Jen Giattino. An appearance by Freeholder Anthony "Stick"Romano can't be ruled out and Karen Nason has been a frequent visitor to the public microphone after she announced her mayoral bid.

There's literally millions of reasons for Hoboken residents to tune into the action tonight. One whopper of an agenda item: the Suez water contract. There's been lots of discussion through the Labor Day Holiday weekend. The problems in the proposed contract are about to come to light even as the complete financial details are anything but transparent.

More tonight at The Show.




 Talking Ed Note: This year's mayoral election will capture the attention of voters. The Mile Square City gets back in the swing of things as seen in this official traffic tally taken yesterday after the holiday. It will grow as the November election approaches.
