Farina: early turnout is light in Hoboken

HOBOKEN – The streets have slowed here since this morning but one man keeps on the move: City Clerk Jimmy Farina, who is as analogous toHobokenon Election Day as was Dino to Ol' Blue Eyes.

“I’ve been working mayoral elections since 1984, when I started this job,” said Farina. “So far, even this morning, I didn’t get the sense that turnout was high. A little after 4 p.m. I’ll take a reading on where we are in terms of voter turnout but right now, based on what I saw down at the Firehouse early, turn out’s comparatively low.”

Six candidates are running for mayor of the mile-square city” At-Large Councilman Peter Cammarano, 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason, 4th Ward Councilwoman Dawn Zimmer, tech head Tom Vincent, financial consultant Ryn Melberg, andbroker Frank Orsini.
