Anju Starace on Ravi Bhalla: 'Leaders unite they don't divide'

The following are excerpts of a letter appearing on Hudson County View from Anju Starace wife of council at-large candidate Sal Starace.

With each successive mailer from Ravi Bhalla I become a little sadder. It astonishes me that someone who shared the same experiences I have faced of being judged based on color would run this type of campaign.

Does he think so little of the voters of Hoboken that he believes this will help him get elected? Does he think so little of himself that he is willing to stir up hatred and divisiveness and partisanship just to advance his own ambitions?
Jen Giattino has been my dearest friend in Hoboken for more than a decade. She is godmother to my youngest daughter and our kids have grown up like siblings. The Jen I know unites people she doesn’t divide them.

Midnight flyers appear slamming Mike DeFusco


It's not an official election in Hoboken until midnight flyers make their appearance.

Guess what, it's that time. Here's what's getting soggy out there on a Sunday, a little more than a week before the big dance and Hoboken goes to the polls to select a mayor.

Since there's rain in the forecast today, you may not get to see these gems under your windshield before mother nature takes its toll. Horsey delivers the exclusive goods here.

Here's the North Bergen connection to Uncle Nick Sacco (the mayor and State Senator in north Hudson County) and a list of characters infamous in local politics Joey Muniz, Perry Belfiore, Camelo Garcia, Frank "Pupie" Raia and Chris Campos among others. They're otherwise known on the street as being with Team DeFusco.

Friends, friends welcome to election season. Let's see who can fling the mud furtherest. Give it some time Ravi Bhalla is going to go for the record!
