Freeholder Anthony L. Romano is running to become Mayor of Hoboken, NJ, and as a product of 3 generations, he knows this city better than anyone. Anthony understands the issues and concerns of his fellow friends and neighbors, because like them, he shares the same concerns for Hoboken. The city is at a critical time in its history and needs an experienced, dynamic leader; one who has the commitment and drive to build a stronger and more vibrant Hoboken, and Anthony is the best candidate to take Hoboken to the next level.
Commitment to the People
Anthony is a dedicated public servant. He has spent the last twenty years in various public service positions. From a teacher, to a member of the Board of Education in Hoboken, to a police captain and currently as a Hudson County Freeholder, his knowledge and experience poises him as the best candidate for Mayor of Hoboken. Anthony Romano knows how to create balance between growth, public service and meeting the needs of the citizens. As Hoboken continues to grow exponentially, the need for a strong leader has never been greater.
Anthony L. Romano believes in diversity and inclusion. He wants the best this city can offer for all of its residents. He is dedicated to fighting for the rights of all — LGBT rights, women’s rights, economic justice, labor rights and environmental protection. Anthony will work with all stakeholders to develop the best programs and plans the city can offer. He believes in citizen engagement, transparency of government, and the fact that government is here to serve people, and that they should be held accountable to the people.
What’s critically important today is that Hoboken, both “old" and “new”, come together to create plans and implement policies that benefit everybody. It’s for that reason alone that we put together a slate of candidates that truly represents the full cross-section of Hoboken’s growing population.

Anthony believes that Hoboken needs a better parking system to address the shortage throughout the city and the overabundance of parking meters. The lack of parking, congestion in our streets and neighborhoods, and the lack of robust development that adheres to strict requirements to include things like adequate parking facilities, must be addressed. Anthony will hold community forums with the residents, expert engineers, architects, and environmentalists to create a strategic plan for the next four years. This plan will utilize a multi-phased process that will minimize the disruption of the quality of life of our residents and visitors.Share Your Concerns
Within the scope of infrastructure, upgrading Hoboken's water main systems is an absolute necessity given that parts of the system are over 100 years old. Severe flooding, water main breaks, cuts to water supply, and sinkholes can no longer be tolerated. These issues are all too common and need solutions. It is costing the city over $1 million to make repairs to the water system. What Hoboken needs is a serious plan to upgrade the ailing water system which also includes a short and long-term maintenance plan.Share Your Concerns
This year, Hudson County proposed a $538 million budget that would raise taxes in six of its twelve municipalities. Although Hoboken is not at the top of list, Anthony will fight to keep taxes flat and relief off the shoulders of the taxpayers. Part of his plan will be to work with developers who are interested in building in Hoboken to ensure that they pay their fair share of taxes to the municipality. His experience as a freeholder gives him direct insight into the county-municipal tax formula.Share Your Concerns
Just recently, the state of New Jersey slashed adjustment aid to many school districts, with Hoboken being one of them. Hoboken lost over $800,000 of needed resources to provide our children with an exceptional education. As a former teacher and Board of Education member, Anthony knows exactly what it takes to help reform the school system, and work with stakeholders to find innovative solutions to the problems. Anthony Romano will always fight for the rights of the parents and children. He will ensure that every child, no matter their economic or educational background, has the opportunity to learn.Share Your Concerns
