Hoboken Ward 2 Council candidate Bonnie Murray says she’s “tired of the fractured politics” in the Mile Square City, which is part of what compelled her to run as an independent in the November 3 election.Â
After explaining that her daughter, Melanie, and her son, Jackson, are enrolled in the Hoboken school system, Murray said that although she is a first time candidate, she has been a long-time advocate in Hobokenâ€™s 2nd Ward – also noting that she has no political ties and is a true independent candidate.
As far as improving the ward goes, Murray actually agrees with one of her opponents, Tiffanie Fisher, in stating that Elysian Park needs to be better maintained.
On a positive note, Murray stated that the vast majority of 2nd Ward residents sheâ€™s interacted with are involved with the community and thatâ€™s a trend sheâ€™d like to continue and improve.
As she did at the Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition debate, Murray also took a firm stance on the Monarch project, saying she opposes the developer building two residential towers as part of the design.
Murray again stressed that she is an independent voice when asked when Ward 2 residents should vote for her on November 3.
