GET BACK TO BASICS:
Reallocate city resources to fix potholes, repave streets and keep our sidewalks clean.
INVEST IN OUR QUALITY OF LIFE:
Create a quality of life department, a joint operation between environmental services and the Hoboken PD, to respond to noise violations, vagrancy, panhandling, dog waste and other daily nuisances.
STAND UP FOR TAXPAYERS:
Keep residential taxes stable while expanding the commercial tax base by encouraging innovative uses like urban wineries, coffee roasters, co-working spaces and culinary incubators.
THINK BIG ON EDUCATION:
Plan a new public high school complex north of 14th Street so that families can stay in Hoboken.
Return Observer Highway to four lanes of traffic, with three lanes out during the morning rush and three lanes inbound in the afternoon. Address traffic caused in and around Paterson Plank Road by the Light Rail, a promise made by the current administration a decade ago.
ELIMINATE BACK DOOR PARKING TAXES:
Stop quota-driven parking tickets used to plug deficiencies in the city budget. Focus on safety and traffic flow, instead of interfering with people going about their day-to-day lives. Invest all revenue from valid parking violations directly into improving parking and transportation.
GET WASHINGTON STREET BACK ON THE MAP:
Cut the prohibitive costs and red tape that are chasing businesses out of Hoboken. Encourage an even more vibrant restaurant scene and help mom and pop shops, makers and creative enterprises thrive.
KEEP POLITICS OUT OF PROFESSIONAL CONTRACTS:
Slash the current administration’s reliance on politically connected contracts, producing better services while eliminating cost overruns.
Continue the push towards a more resilient and green future by developing responsible public-private partnerships to build out park space and protect against flooding. Take a neighborhood approach to planning to ensure Hoboken stays charming and unique.
PRESERVE THE PAST:
Stop the demolition of historic brownstones by expanding the historic district and fight against residential displacement caused by the current administration’s overbearing flood ordinance on streets that rarely flood, like Bloomfield, Garden, and Park.
IMAGINE THE FUTURE:
Advance plans to encourage a regional tech hub developed in conjunction with Stevens Institute of Technology, adaptively repurpose parts of the train terminal into a world-class European market and rebuild the crumbling multi-service center.
