Move Forward Fundraiser Kicks Off School Board Campaign

The event was held late last week at Room84.

Move Forward, the slate trying to win the majority of the Hoboken Board of Education, held its kick off event on Thursday at Room84.

The slate: Anthony Oland, Liz Markevitch and Felice Vazquez. The three are going up against the three Kids First candidates, who kicked off their campaign a week earlier.

School Board member and Executive Director of the Hoboken Housing Authority Carmelo Garcia was the MC of the event. Sitting school board member Peter Biancamano also attended the event.

Minority council members Theresa Castellano, Beth Mason, Michael Russo, and Tim Occhipinti were also there.

Hoboken's School Board elections will take place on Nov. 6.

Apparently the ONLY thing that the Raia/Russo/Mason BOE ticket stands for is to return the control to the OLD GUARD politicos. That should never be allowed to happen again.

Oh look, it's Angel Alicea who was recently identified as a recipient of stolen emails, while he was trying to sue the city for unlawful termination. Hi Angel.

Kids First platform 1. Fire the best teachers. Reward the worst. 2. Make Rose Markle president again so she can abuse members of the public who dare come before her. 3. Lower test scores even to rock bottom. 4. Charter schools steal money from our kids. So abuse them all the time. 5. um, um, um

Why is Move Forward accepting illegal campaign donations? I think this city has seen enough of politicians who break the law. "The city ruled that the Mason contribution has to be returned by the Move Forward group within 30 days. City officials responded to Mason's letter in a statement saying that the municipal legislation, enacted last year, applies to all candidates equally. "Hoboken's anti-wheeling law, passed in mid- 2011, clearly states that candidates for local office cannot receive or accept contributions from political committees in excess of $500," said city attorney, Mellissa Longo. "The law applies to all candidate and political committees and will be fully enforced by the City of Hoboken. Willful violations require the payment of a penalty equal to four times the amount of the illegal contribution."
