Notably, we have approved a $52 million bonding issue to preserve our community hospital, Hoboken University Medical Center, formerly St. Mary Hospital. The hospital-has served -Hoboken and i-iudson County for motejhan acentury, serving tens of thousands of patients annually and employing more than a thousand Hudserr.County residents: -- . As you are aware, for years we have worked to create parks and open space, control development through implementation of the Master Plan, and overall quality of life upgrades.

Most importantly, we need to directly affect the lives of future generations through our public schools.
