Why do tenants pay realtor fees in Hoboken?

I’ve been asked many questions about “cost of living” in Hoboken along with housing costs and increasing rents. I’ve also been asked about Rent Control – and I have some issues with it in it’s present form: mostly because it is too complicated and in it’s present form hurts both landlords and tenants. But one… Read More »

Election Day Morning Help

I’ve acquired 5000 stickers that say simply “I Voted”. I’m looking for help in distributing these stickers to all Hoboken polling locations on election day morning – first thing. I’ve reached out to some other campaigns to see if we can make it a collaborative effort (with 36 polling locations, I could use the help)… Read More »

Our mailer has arrived!

Keep an eye on your mailbox: Cindy Wiegand (13H) and I (3H) split the cost of a mailer. This mailer should have gone out to every important constituent in Hoboken. If you received our mailer: know that Cindy and I will be working hard for you and that any concern you have can be sent… Read More »

New Videos, Updates

I’ve added a couple videos. I’m amazed at how I’ve roughly treated videos equally – but some videos have had thousands of views and some hardly any views. It’s pretty amazing to see that one video will surpass 10,000 views in the near future (definitely before election day). Printed materials are completed and will start… Read More »

What does this sign mean?

What does this sign mean?  I know what the word ONLY means.  And I also think I know what “ALL OTHERS” mean – but how can it be both at the same time?  It can’t.   This is unfriendly for visitors to our town.  If you own a business – don’t expect anyone to drive into… Read More »

Children, especially older Hoboken children have limited options for recreation. This is a talking point from several candidates – but for me it’s not just an issue, it’s something I can help solve even before election day. I’ve reached out to a number of stakeholders in Hoboken and I believe we are close to working… Read More »

Board of Ed Campaign Launch

I just came from Church Square Park. Where I went to say hello to Ailene McGuirk, Malani Cademartori and Tom Kluepfel, three longtime Hoboken residents and Board of Ed members who are running for re-election. Their only opponent is Patricia Waiters. The four competing for three seats on the BOE. Reaching out, connecting and discussing… Read More »

Next!

Nearly every day I’m interviewed by someone or working on something. However – I’d like to start reaching out and talking to voters in small groups. If you have a small group of Hoboken residents that would be interested in having a chat – please contact me at ian@ianforhoboken.com. I’m mostly comfortable outside or at… Read More »

Videos…

And away we go! The court hearing meant that I was confirmed on the ballot 9 days later than I should have been – so I’m unfortunately a little over a week behind where I could have been. But a part of my strategy is creating short videos explaining positions I have and introducing myself.… Read More »
