This week, Hoboken was handed the news that it was unsuccessful in the most recent Monarch Shipyard court case. This is an unfortunate ruling that places developer interests over the interests of Hoboken’s residents.

The Shipyard’s proposed development along the waterfront poses a serious risk to our City and the safety of our residents. Climate change is a real danger to coastal cities like Hoboken, and placing a large residential building directly in a flood zone violates our flood ordinance. I am very supportive of Mayor Zimmer’s decision to forge ahead and continue defending our community before the New Jersey Supreme Court.

We need to protect and preserve our waterfront from irresponsible development, and if elected Mayor, I pledge to continue providing all the resources necessary to continue the fight against the Monarch development.
