Hoboken Councilman Ramos is first potential Bhalla mayoral challenger to file…

first_img Ruben is a proven loser who has the support of losers like HHA commissioners Andrew Impastato and Lavon Smith (whose wife is Ruben’s “Treasurer”). I wonder how many votes Andrew and Lavon can buy for Ruben in the Housing Authority. O and don’t forget all of Ruben’s friends are in jail!Also, it is funny to think that Tiffanie has any chance of being elected Mayor. No one knows who she is and her only real claim to fame is that she strongly opposes the Braised Rabbit dish at Anthony David’s.But….this is democracy and unless you’re a Republican like Tiffanie, then this will be treated as a fair election.

TAGS2021 hoboken mayoral contestmike defuscoravi bhallaruben ramos SHARE Bayonne Auditor out of the closet yet? Editor’s note: This story was updated with a comment from city spokesman Vijay Chaudhuri. Comments are closed. Fled2NY The Auditor December 18, 2020 11:29 am at 11:29 am 17 COMMENTS Hoboken 4th Ward Councilman Ruben Ramos is the first potential challenger to Mayor Ravi Bhalla to file preliminary paperwork with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (NJ ELEC), though he says he is still weighing his options. By John Heinis/Hudson County View“I have a long record of accomplishments in Hoboken and the state legislature. There are a lot of things that Hoboken still has to strive for,” Ramos said over the phone this afternoon.“The past decade has left the city stagnant: our tax increase this year and last year are examples of that and I think I’d be a steady hand to lead it going forward. This is part of us doing our due diligence. I know we have a solid base of support throughout our city and we’ll see what comes from it.”Ramos filed a D1 form with NJ ELEC on December 2nd, which essentially establishes a campaign account for a new or different office, though there is no mechanism to force a candidate to run for that office.The councilman also said that “all options are on the table” and that this filing was part of the preparation process heading into 2021, noting that he wasn’t 100 percent committed to running just yet.A longtime political rival of the incumbent mayor, Ramos and Bhalla actually squared off in the 2011 Democratic primary for state Assembly in the 33rd Legislative District, which Ramos won easily as the candidate backed by the Hudson County Democratic Organization.He served three terms in the assembly before running for mayor in 2013, losing to incumbent Dawn Zimmer in a race where then-4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipinti headed a third slate.Ramos would get a taste of revenge in 2015, successfully challenging Occhipinti in a three-way race to get his old gig back.In 2017, when Bhalla was elected mayor, Ramos endorsed 1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco, who finished in a close second place and had been widely believed to be seeking a rematch in next year’s non-partisan contest.Two years later when Ramos was defending his council seat, Bhalla endorsed Lisa Sprengle in the 4th Ward, but the incumbent never broke a sweat and won by over 20 points.A spokeswoman for DeFusco both did not immediately return an inquiry seeking comment while city spokesman Vijay Chaudhuri said Bhalla is feeling good about his chances of getting re-elected.“Mayor Bhalla is solely focused on keeping residents safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and is confident that his record will speak for itself against any and all candidates in next year’s campaign,” he said.Another possible challenger, 2nd Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher, said she still hasn’t ruled out a mayoral run, but has still made no further commitments beyond that.Along with the mayor’s seat, Council members-at-Large Vanessa Falco, who ran with DeFusco in 2017, Emily Jabbour, and Jim Doyle – both of whom ran with Bhalla three years ago – are also up for re-election in November 2021.

The idea that he needs Impastato and Smith to buy HHA votes for him is pretty ludicrous.I expect Ravi will win re-election easily no matter who runs – he’s done a great job with Covid among other things – but among his prospective opponents, Ramos, DeFusco and Russo each start of with bases about equal in size – more or less 1500 votes each. The strongest candidate would be whoever can most effectively expand from their base. The only way to really find out who that is would be for them all to run and let the best man win.As for Fisher, I don’t think she would have much of a shot of finishing first among the opposition candidates since she doesn’t have any meaningful base at all, but she would certainly offer a different perspective for voters to consider. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Auditor packing heat? Much like the city council elections of ’19 and the last mayoral election, there will not be great candidates to choose from, and we will all have to hold our nose while voting. That said, given the terrible track record of Ravi and his administration while in office, you couldn’t possibly support his re-election, right?

Do you actually live here?I guess Ruben’s family need jobs, so he might as well run again. Will he and DuFusco gang up on the mayor or just knife each other?

first_imgABC News(MOBILE, Ala.) — States of emergency are in effect in Mississippi, Louisiana and parts of Alabama as Tropical Storm Gordon bears down on the Gulf Coast.The storm, bringing gusty winds, heavy rain and potentially flooding, is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane by the time it makes landfall along the Mississippi coastline Tuesday evening.Heavy rain and inland flooding are major concerns for Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Arkansas as the storm moves north Wednesday.Some areas may see up to a foot of rain.Storm surge is also a concern, potentially reaching as high as 5 feet.“Nobody should panic but everybody should take this seriously,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said at a news conference Monday.“Gordon is a tight, fast-moving tropical storm,” Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director Brian Hastings said in a statement Tuesday. “If you live in the coastal counties, especially in surge and flood prone areas, it is imperative that you get to a safe place by early afternoon and stay there through Wednesday morning.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

“On the verge of a tragedy:” The stark numbers of a pandemic-hit NYC

first_img(Getty)About 24,000 New Yorkers have lost their lives to the coronavirus.The city’s unemployment rate is 16 percent — twice the national average. And just 10 percent of Manhattan workers have returned to the office, putting into question the value of the city’s prime office stock.Personal income tax revenue is projected to drop by $2 billion this fiscal year.Only a third of hotel rooms are occupied, and Manhattan apartment vacancies crept over 5 percent in August for the first time in at least 14 years.Those are the figures that best tell the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on New York City, which is facing structural challenges not since the fiscal crisis of the 1970s, according to the New York Times.One stark example: Shares of Empire State Realty Trust, the REIT that owns the Empire State Building, have fallen by 50 percent this year.ADVERTISEMENT“We’re on the verge of a tragedy,” Richard Ravitch, the former state official who helped New York City with its financial recovery in the 1970s, told the Times.Sales tax revenue fell 35 percent in the second quarter and 15 percent so far this year, according to the Times. Income tax revenue is also expected to drop for the next few months.The third pillar of the city’s revenue — property taxes — is the most stable, though property tax delinquencies have already risen and landlords are gearing up to challenge their assessments.Ravitch is calling for sweeping budget cuts and the establishment of a financial control board. The city, facing a $9 billion revenue shortfall, has explored the option of deficit spending, and reportedly wants the state to authorize up to $5 billion in borrowing.But the Times notes that deficit spending may not cure the city’s ills — meanwhile, it cannot count on the state for support, as the state is facing its own $14.5 billion revenue shortfall. And federal help has been hard to come by.“It’s clear there are going to be hits for years to come, you can’t deny that,” Bill Neidhardt, the press secretary for Mayor Bill de Blasio, told the Times. “We’ve been calling for a stimulus, and Washington has done what they do, which is nothing.” [NYT] —Hiten Samtani This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Candidates compete in city’s mayoral race

first_imgThree candidates are on the ballot for the mayor’s race in South Bend today, but a Notre Dame journalism professor said the city will continue to see a Democrat in office after the election. Professor Jack Colwell, who was also a longtime political journalist, said Democrat Pete Buttigieg, a 29-year-old businessman, has long been the front runner in today’s race. Republican Wayne Curry and Libertarian Patrick Farrell will also appear on the ballot. “Pete Buttigieg will almost certainly be the new mayor,” Colwell said. “There hasn’t been much doubt about that since the primary when he won really big, and South Bend tends to be a Democratic town anyway.” Colwell covered politics for the South Bend Tribune for more than 38 years and still writes a political column for the paper. He said Buttigieg’s place as an early favorite is consistent with mayoral elections in the city’s history. “The last time a Republican won it was 1967, so it was a long time ago,” Colwell said. “Buttigieg actually got a lot of cross-over Republicans voting for him in the primary, so he’s not only a favorite with Democrats but with Republicans, too.” The major issue on South Bend residents’ minds has been economic development, Colwell said. “[The debate has] mostly been who would be the most competent to help with economic development and bring jobs to the community and turn around the image of the city,” Colwell said. “Newsweek Magazine rated South Bend as a dying city, and the new mayor will certainly want to erase any image like that. That’s been the main thing they have been talking about, the image of the city and how to get the economy moving again in the city.” Colwell predicted cooperation between the City of South Bend and the University would only grow as the new mayor takes office. The University is the area’s largest employer and projects developed through Notre Dame, such as Eddy Street Commons and construction on campus, bring jobs to the area, he said. “Notre Dame is a very important part of the economy, and if the city is looking to bring more jobs to the area I think it’s got to be working with Notre Dame because years ago this was known as a factory town,” Colwell said. “Studebaker was produced here, and there are some people who still seem to think Studebaker is going to come back some day, but it’s not. So it’s going to have to be small businesses, green businesses, businesses dealing with the computer age that will provide those jobs.” Colwell said students should take an interest in the city’s economy, even if they do not plan to stay in the immediate area after graduation. “If they take an interest in some of the economic development efforts or some new firm coming in, maybe they could, if they are looking for a job, end up in one [through those connections],” Colwell said. If elected, Colwell said Buttigieg would be able to work well with administration and students from Notre Dame. “He’s 29 years old, so he’s not that far away from college students that he doesn’t understand college students and their lifestyle,” he said. “So I would think he would have a very good relationship between the new mayor and Notre Dame.” Buttigieg grew up in the South Bend area, and he is the son of professor Joseph Buttigieg in the University’s English department. A young mayor with favorable attitudes toward Notre Dame is a greater opportunity for cooperation between South Bend and the University, Colwell said. “I think [students] are taking a little more interest in things and trying to communicate with the city officials and trying to form committees to do that, and I think that’s good because they can make clear they aren’t just saying, ‘We want to be able to do whatever we want to do and throw parties,’” he said. “It shouldn’t be an adversarial relationship, but one of cooperation.” The 2011 race is the first since 1997 without current mayor Steve Leucke, a Democrat, on the ballot. Colwell said the Republican camp traditionally does not present a strong challenge in the race. “It’s quite similar to past elections because the Republicans, with a few exceptions, have not really put up a strong contender, and some of the races have really been laughers with the Democrat sure to win and the Republican not really putting up a fight at all,” Colwell said. “This time, the [Republicans] have put up a little bit more of a fight.” The tone of debate, however, has been largely positive despite Buttigieg’s place as the easy favorite, Colwell said. “It’s not been a divisive or nasty race at all,” Colwell said. The young candidate’s success should be an example for students looking at careers in politics, he said. “I think there’s tremendous potential for young candidates or young people to get involved in politics,” Colwell said. “In a lot of elections the turnout is pretty poor and they have trouble getting people to work at the polls and on the campaigns, so some bright young people who are willing to do that can step right in and have great positions. Get a good start and go on to whatever they want, whether it’s mayor or Congress or whatever.”last_img read more

Karlie Place wins with new poles; Sammie Houston sees increased role

first_imgMen’s Team wins 10 titlesSammie Houston ended the Snowshoe Open with a top-10 finish in Minnesota’s history.Houston won the indoor triple jump, earning a mark of 49 feet and 6.50 inches and the Gophers earned 10 titles in the meet to close out the regular season. Houston has seen an increased role this year compared to his past two seasons with the team.“Last year was kind of get back into it, and then this year, [Houston] has kind of come into his own a little bit,” head coach Steve Plasencia said. “Anytime we see that, it makes me happy for the young man.”Redshirt sophomore Jonathan Tharaldsen won the shot put with a personal record of 57 feet and 5.50 inches. Connor Rousemiller, also a redshirt sophomore, took home the event title in weight throw, going for 65 feet and 7.75 inches.For the second consecutive year, Minnesota claimed 10 titles in the final meet of the home schedule. The Gophers head to the Big Ten Indoor Championships next weekend. Plasencia, though, said he is not the kind of coach who counts event titles and much of the competition came from Division III schools in this meet.“It’s kind of a meet where we run people that need a tune up before they head into the Big Ten’s and also guys who are trying to fill out some spots for the team,” Plasencia said. “I’m kind of looking more at the individual performances.” Karlie Place wins with new poles; Sammie Houston sees increased rolePlace won the poll vault after receiving new poles that day. Jack WhiteFebruary 19, 2018Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Gophers coaching staff thought senior Karlie Place was improving, so they ordered bigger poles for her to exceed past performances.There was one problem, however: the poles arrived the day before Saturday’s meet, the Parents Day Invite, and Place did not have time to practice with them before she competed.She still managed to finish first on the pole vault with a jump of 13 feet, 11.75 inches. She fell just short of a career best, as Minnesota claimed five event titles over the weekend.“It was a big day and the poles were a big part of it because I feel like I’ve been almost maxed out on the [shorter] poles,” Place said. “I feel really powerful when I’m holding onto the top. It felt really good to be able to move my grip up.”Redshirt junior Kiley Sabin won the shot put with a throw of 55 feet and 7.75 inches. Minnesota claimed the second and third place throws in the shot put as well. Junior Nayoka Clunis finished second and redshirt sophomore Shay Nielsen finished third.Head coach Matt Bingle said the highlights of the meet came in the throws.“That was awesome,” Bingle said. “They should come out of here super confident in where we’re heading.”Place attended the Hippo Campus concert in St. Paul to cap off an eventful Saturday.“I’m actually not tired at all,” Place said Saturday night. “I’m probably going to do some homework and not go to bed for a while.”last_img read more
