Mason backs Corzine re-election

A day before a local rally with Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine,Second Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason became the only candidate in the Hoboken mayor's race to formally endorse Corzine's re-election.

"As a resident of the second ward, Jon is a constituent of mine and I know him well," Mason said in a statement."It's clear that he's the best choice for the future of Hoboken. The key issues that he has fought for in Trenton are deeply meaningful to myself and many others in the city.

Mason is running againstActing Mayor Dawn Zimmer, supermarket owner Frank Raia, retired municipal judge Kimberly Glatt andRepublican Nathan Brinkman, amongothers.

"Among all the reasons to support the governor, one may have been overlooked in this campaign: judicial appointments," added the councilwoman."The next governor could appoint several justices to the State Supreme Court, and with Jon Corzine in office we can be sure that they will be progressive and fair people who will keep our state moving forward, not backward."
