“Since [Caroline] Caulfield’s first day on Tuesday, May 29, she has been busy advocating for the needs of residents, advancing numerous projects to make City Hall more accessible. Most recently, Caroline held a luncheon for small business owners to have a conversation with the Mayor,” said city spokesman Santiago Melli-Huber

“In fighting for the needs of our City’s low-income residents, Caulfield has played a key role working with the Hoboken Housing Authority and as a leader on Mayor Bhalla’s Homelessness Task Force.”

The Office of Constituent Affairs seeks to help residents with quality of life issues, with a special attention paid to the needs of Hoboken’s seniors, low-income tenants, and residents with disabilities.

In an effort to make sure all resident concerns are heard, the office will hold mobile office hours at various times and locations across our City.

Furthermore, in overseeing the City’s digital 311 system, the Office of Constituent Affairs tracks response times across City Hall Departments and implements data to improve the daily function of municipal services for residents.

Open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m., the office will serve as a central location where residents can come assistance.

Those who wish to make an appointment in advance or outside of those hours should contact Caulfield at (201) 420-2000 ext.1311 or ccaulfield@hobokennj.gov.
