“Together, Councilwoman Emily Jabbour, Joe Quintero and Dini Ajmani provide a proven track record of success, deep professional experience that will serve our city well, and an infusion of new energy,” Bhalla said in a statement.

“This is a team that I know can help me lead Hoboken forward.”

While he had picked up petitions for nomination, Councilman-at-Large Jim Doyle will not seek a third term on the governing body. However, he is already coming out in support of this year’s incarnation of the Bhalla slate.

“I know first-hand how hard and effectively Emily Jabbour works as a Councilperson, and she always has the best interest of Hoboken residents front and center,” Doyle noted.

“Joe Quintero and Dini Admani will bring to the council both smarts and a strong commitment to Hoboken. I enthusiastically support Emily, Joe, and Dini for Hoboken City Council.”

Elected with Team Bhalla in 2017, Jabbour helped to launch FLAG, the Front Line Appreciation Group, to support front line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

She also founded the Hudson County Chapter of Moms Demand Action, a grassroots advocacy organization focused on preventing gun violence. She is an active supporter of the Hoboken Public Education Foundation and a regular volunteer with the Hoboken Food

Additionally, Jabbour works full-time as a Senior Social Science Research Analyst for the Administration for Children and Families, part of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and is a graduate of the Columbia University School of Social Work.

As for Quintero, he is an an attorney who works to ensure that banks comply with federal and state regulations. He also began serving as one of the vice chairs of the Hoboken Democratic Committee earlier this year.

The son of Colombian immigrants, Quinetero is a graduate of University of Massachusetts-Amherst and received his law degree from Fordham Law School.

Finally, Ajmani serves as assistant treasurer for the State of New Jersey. In this role, she is responsible for pension and health benefits for the State’s public employees, the NJ lottery, and the managing of the state’s public debt.  

She also serves on the Board of New Jersey Transit on behalf of the State Treasurer.  Prior to her service in the public sector, Dini worked for more than two decades in the financial services, including stints at Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan.

Currently, Ajmani is also a commissioner on the Hoboken Planning Board, as well as a Democratic Committeewoman.  She earned a Master’s in Computer Sciences from University of Texas and an MBA from Stanford University.

The other incumbent, Vanessa Falco, has opted not to seek re-election in favor of becoming the city’s first director of the division of housing in January, to the dismay of at least two of her colleagues.

Both Patricia Waiters and Cheryl Fallick have picked up petitions of nomination and could potentially run as independents, while 2nd Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher put out a call for independent candidates to run in an email blast this morning.

Petitions are due at the City Clerk’s Office at 4 p.m. on August 30th for Hoboken’s non-partisan November 2nd municipal elections.

  1. Hacks for Ravi. This town better wake up and stop this. No one can support an executive who obtained his power through a hate crime. It’s not only a hate crime against humanity but all the people of Hoboken.

      • You mean they are vaccinated with the latest studies confirmed today proving “vaccines’ effectiveness is WANING in even preventing severe illness or death.”

        (Please not for the frothy Ravi paid political operatives who are reading impaired: that says “severe illness” and DEATH.

        Even the CDC has been forced to admit it. No choice since they lost the court case and had to give up the actual data demonstrating the 99% hospitalized were not jabbed. Of course if they got the jab they don’t collect that data. How convenient. Regardless, now the truth is out and if you got the jab, you are a long term guinea pig and a short term guinea pig. Go get your “booster” shot to fend off the virus that 99.8% of Americans can handle perfectly well on their own.

        Ravi Bhalla should have an all hands on deck meeting for the spaghetti dinner. He needs to get the vaxed super spreader variant incubators out and the natural immunity people with durable resistance to the CCP Virus in.

        Round’em up Ravi!

        • “Horse” gets his “facts” from a Chinese religious CULT!!! Bwaa haw haw

          “The Epoch Times is a far-right international multi-language newspaper and media company affiliated with the Falun Gong new religious movement. The newspaper, based in New York City, is part of the Epoch Media Group, which also operates New Tang Dynasty Television.”

        • I see what you are saying! This is the quote from the article

          “Even though our vaccines are currently working well to prevent hospitalizations, we are seeing concerning evidence of waning vaccine effectiveness over time and against the Delta variant,” Walensky said during a news conference in explaining why federal officials are now recommending that booster shots be given to Americans eight months after they’ve been vaccinated with the Pfizer or Moderna shots.

          It sounds like some kind of nazi double-speak. They should be prosecuted as soon as possible! The booster shot is probably for the Bill Gates chip anyway! Whoever heard of booster shots before this?????? 3rd shot = 3rd reich!

          • The facts in science are the facts. Enjoy.
            Enjoy your guinea pig booster. Baaaaaaaaaaaa

            Go back to your cave of lies, defamation and stupidity Nancy because otherwise your fat ass gets busted up here more. Rav doesn’t pay you enough to have you look like a jackass this often.

      • The actual doctor and scientist who invented the mRNA technology, Dr. Robert Malone offers a little evidence to the science yesterday:

        “if you are vaccinated and then become infected, your risk of developing severe disease or dying is better than if you were not vaccinated and then become infected with Delta.”

        and:

        “Therefore, if you are vaccinated and then become infected, you MAY have a higher risk of becoming a “superspreader” because you are less likely to show disease. This has not been measured, but it should be.”

        You can look to explore data and evidence in science or follow a mentally deranged leftist who lives for censorship, defamation and being a Ravi paid political operative: Sybil of the bat shit crazy cave.

        Choose wisely.

        • Dr Malone is 100% correct about his opinion!

          But he is 100% wrong about the facts which keep showing that infections are much more minor after vaccination while the overwhelming majority of people winding up in the hospital these days are unvaccinated.

          That only proves one thing: facts are nazis!

          • Dr. Robert Malone is not wrong. You’re wrong. He created the mRNA technology. You create noise based on your fanatical leftist ideology.

            The experimental shots are failing. This is an established fact and the goalposts are moving now, almost daily. If the shots were working, there would be no need for any “booster.” Now a “booster” is required for immunocompromised people. Mere days later, everyone is being told to line up for their booster shot. Big Pharma has a smile and people with a modicum of common sense are saying, “What?”

            The Big Pharma injections will continue to fail and more people will become ill and be hospitalized, same as in Israel. Screaming and coercing people to take the failing experimental injections is not a solution. Israel has very high vaccination rates and their exploding hospitalizations and fatalities come from this pool.

            Put your totalitarian desires aside and watch as the outbreaks increase in the US in regional spikes as in the past with this virus. Because it’s happening. Ultimately it’s the people with durable natural immunity that will see the figures drop again. Early outpatient treatment is the answer and suppression of repurposed drugs with success in many parts of the world will break through in the US. Then accountability will rise beyond the censorship and totalitarian hands asking why there was so much censorship on early treatments with inexpensive available solutions.

            Dr. Malone is currently pointing to severe problems in “reports from Israel suggest INCREASED RISK OF SEVERE DISEASE amongst those vaccinated early.” Other scientists are pointing to this data and others say this is exactly what they warned about.

            Are we to ignore the scientific fact of failing Big Pharma injections because you are a fanatical backer of Ravi, State totalitarian control, and needless discrimination against Americans, blacks and Hispanics a high percentage among them?

            For those who wish to have a clue on where these problems are headed and how mandating experimental injections will not resolve anything with public health. Here’s what you should know:

          • Exactly!

            Unfortunately Antifa has made $trillions on gay wedding planning and is using the money to reverse all of the data that would prove Dr Malone is right! That’s you you don’t have any and are forced to just keep repeating it’s out there someplace but you don’t know where.

            Well now you do know! Antifa Gay Wedding Planners Inc bought the data and changed it to make it SEEM like all the hospitalized patients in Hoboken aren’t vaccinated. And it SEEMS like that everywhere.

            Just check this article from ultra-far-left Washington Examiner.
            https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/delta-surge-drives-rise-in-covid-19-vaccinations

            Not surprisingly the marxist sheep at ultra-liberal Fox News are requiring vaccination status and masks in confined areas. Unless this is another Antifa Gay Wedding Planners hit job!

  2. “…2nd Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher put out a call for independent candidates to run in an email blast this morning.”

    Perhaps James Aibel, Jason Ellis or Sal Starace can provide a testimonial on how successful the Councilwoman is at running Council campaigns for others beyond herself. They came in 9th – 11th place, respectively after running on #FourthPlaceJen’s ticket.

  3. But in today’s Hoboken only on murals amd press releases.
    What gives ?
    Removed a Black commissioner from the HHA for a guy that’s Part Asian in a housing community that has basically 0 % in its buildings

    BLM

    BHALLA

    LEGAL CONTRACTS

    MATTER

  4. Wow that Doyle is a real suave politician there, he signs off on that ward salad…was he interviewed before or after last call?

    Surprised he’s not endorsing Andy Capp
    These candidates come from that NJ Democratic club where they manufacture the Peter Camnaranos and John Allens types…

      • Actually, she might be getting a demanding new job and decided she probably would not be able to fulfill her council role to the level that Hoboken citizen deserve. Yes, it is a smart move, but not for the reasons you think it is.

        Tiff creating a HUGE sigh of relief.
