hMAG has never sought, nor would we accept political campaign ads. Nor will hMAG offer an “official endorsement” of any candidates. Our only objective is to educate our readers on the issues facing this town, and let them formulate their own opinions.
With that in mind, we present our 2019 Hoboken City Council Candidate Questionnaire—asking the tough questions about duty, policy, service… and Sinatra.
You’ve seen the mailers, you’ve endured the campaign—now see the candidates as they present themselves in their own words…
