5th ward candidates debate the questions of the day for Hoboken

This fifth ward debate with the three candidates: Tim Crowell, Phil Cohen, and Nicola Maganuco is courtesy of the Mile Square Theater and "The Pulse with Peter B."

Questions are presented by moderators Peter Biancamano and Joshua Sotomayor Einstein.



Talking Ed Note: A wide variety of topics is covered in this discussion. Among them: taxes, transportation, housing, Hudson County and its relationship to Hoboken.

Of note, this is the only ward forum where any of Ravi Bhalla's backed council ward candidates have shown up. In three earlier council debates, one being set a month in advance, none of the Team Bhalla candidates appeared.

In the first ward, Migdalia Pagan Milano did not appear with Councilman Michael Defusco.

Yesterday for the second ward forum, Nora Martinez Debenedetto did not show up with Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher.

Hudson Media Group hosted a forum for the second ward candidates.
Of the submitted questions from the audience was this one, "Where is Nora?"

Earlier, Cristin Cricco Powell followed suit and her empty podium hosted nothing but crickets between sixth ward candidates Frank Rosner and City Council President Jen Giattino.

Apparently, it's really difficult to have a political consultant out of Rhode Island be everywhere and do everything on behalf of Ravi Bhalla's council slate.
