first_imgHOBOKEN — Kurt Gardiner said last week that he will be running as an independent candidate in this year’s November election for one of three at-large council seats.Gardiner currently serves on the North Hudson Sewerage Authority as a Hoboken commissioner (for which members receive a $5,000 stipend) and has done so since February 2016.He was also elected to the Hoboken Democratic Committee, where he serves on the executive committee as the sergeant at arms. He ran for freeholder in 2011 but was unsuccessful.“I am committed to Hoboken’s future and plan to stay here for many more years,” said Gardiner in an email. ”There is a dearth of Hoboken specific experience on the City Council slates overall and I am one of the most knowledgeable and principled candidates running.”Gardiner said he hopes to tackle five top issues if elected: preventing overdevelopment, updating the Master Plan, further infrastructure investment in flooding, providing more parking, and traffic. Gardiner joins 12 other candidates for the three at-large council seats. For more information keep watching hudsonreporter.com. ×last_img
