Councilman Peter Cunningham: Development, fiscal integrity and QOL in 2018

Official release:

Happy New Year to all!!

Mayor Zimmer sent her last public service announcement about Christmas tree disposal.   Because little Christmas is Jan 6th, and many of you will not dispose of your tree until that is past, we will work with the coming Bhalla Administration to ensure an additional pick up option next week.  

We send Mayor Zimmer and her family our best wishes as she leaves the Mayor’s office and look forward to this historic inaugural event.  Hoboken will swear in our first Sikh Mayor and the first in New Jersey, Ravi Bhalla.  This is very exciting for our community!  
The first Council meeting of the New Year will be held on Wednesday.  We will focus primarily on reorganization of the City Council, certain board appointments and some regular city business.  There seems to be a lot of unnecessary nervous expectations on what's going to happen, what's expected and what it means for Hoboken.  My policy positions on development, fiscal integrity and quality of life to name a few have not changed.  Focusing on these issues plus addressing other matters of importance will continue with transparency and efforts to ensure conflict free decision making.

I am looking forward to addressing pressing economic development matters, such as the post office hotel project, western edge, and common sense quality of life initiatives around parking and transportation.

Please pass on to your friends and neighbors, and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  And be safe this evening and good health into the New Year!  Thanks, Peter
