Hoboken mayoral candidate Michael DeFusco announced Andrew Impastato as the second Council candidate on his slate. In June, Michael Flett joined the ticket.
DeFusco said, “Andrew has been an outspoken advocate for modernizing parking technology and pushing for more athletic space in Hoboken. He brings a passion for creative problem solving to the table and will be a dedicated and responsive asset on the City Council. I’m thrilled to have Andrew on the team as we advocate for new ideas that challenge the status quo.”
Impastato, a 3rd Ward resident, is a basketball coach at Hudson Catholic High School and is the creator of the “Parking Dude”, which informs residents and drivers in Hoboken of parking regulations.
With multiple mayoral candidates announcing candidacies at a fast pace since Mayor Zimmer opted out of seeking a third term, Hoboken could see up to eighteen council candidates on different slates, depending on whom stays in and out of the race. So far, Freeholder Anthony Romano, Councilmembers DeFusco, Bhalla, and Giattaino are declared, as is business owner Karen Nason, activist Ronald Bautista, and Angel Valenti.
North Hudson Sewerage Commissioner Kurt Gardiner announced a run for Council, as did Joshua Einstein, a GOP state committeeman.
