In a letter to the editor, Hoboken resident Sara Cohen explains why she is voting for Marla Decker in the 2nd Ward council race and others should do the same.
Dear Editor and Hoboken 2nd Ward residents,
My name is Sarah Cohen, and I’m a friend of Marla Decker, who is running in the 2nd Ward for city council. I personally know Marla because our sons attended Wallace Elementary together.
Marla quickly went from being a “mom friend” to a real friend because she’s an incredible and empathic person. Anytime my son visits Marla’s home, he is welcomed with open arms.
He never slept over a friend’s home before and at age ten he stayed over at Marla’s and she made him feel welcomed.
Marla is a great fit to be our city council member and she truly cares about the residents in our 2nd Ward, especially our children. She always shows up for every school event and is committed to public safety.
She is a member of Moms Demand Action and has earned a Gun Sense Candidate distinction.
Marla cares about the future of our ward and will support public recreational and cultural programming for our children to use for years to come.
I live in the 2nd Ward in the Hudson Tea building. I know how much our neighborhood means to Marla.
Please join me in voting for Marla Decker for City Council in the 2nd Ward on Tuesday,
