Hackensack Discussion / Re: 2021 City Council Election
« Last post by Victor E Sasson on March 26, 2021, 08:30:41 AM »
So far, 38 people have read this about the City Council election on May 11, and not a single reaction.

I guess that's a reflection of the apathy, even boredom that greets the May election every 4 years and the Board of Education and school budget election every April.
Hackensack Discussion / 2021 City Council Election
« Last post by Victor E Sasson on March 25, 2021, 03:40:00 PM »
Deputy Mayor David Sims has been dumped from the City Council slate headed by Mayor John Labrosse, and Sims is heading his own slate in the non-partisan May 11 election.

He is seeking help from former 4-term Mayor Jack Zisa, whose allies were ousted by Labrosse's reform slate in 2013.

Labrosse cited the violation of the Covid-19 lockdown at City Hall by Sims when he brought his daughter, who had tested positive, into the building.

Sims and the other council members were reelected in 2017.

A third City Council slate is being headed by Leila Amirhamzeh, a member of the Hackensack Board of Education.

What's your reaction to this latest brouhaha in Hackensack?

The Caption Monster took three big bites out of The Record today:

1. The very first word.........

2. At least the story got his name right.

3. This is utter stupidity. You can SEE the player's name on his uniform!

Got one yesterday for my mother in law's birthday...Was better than it's been lately, I wonder if the Fallon thing made them step it up a little bit?  :o
This was an absolute breeze compared with the long lines of cars and people you see on TV waiting for hours to get their COVID shots. I walked into the Civic Center, minor paperwork at 3 stations took 5 minutes, got my shot and a card for my second Moderna shot at the same time on April 8, sat in the 15-minute waiting area to make sure there were no adverse reactions and left. The whole thing took less than 25 minutes and 15 of that was spent in the after-shot waiting area, where a couple of ladies saw me taking pictures and asked me to take pictures of them with their phones.

Everyone was very nice and it was almost fun. You'd be crazy to go anywhere else.


The pix:

1. The signs you see upon entry

2. The shot

3. The 15-minute waiting area (this is a photo may need to scroll to see it all)

Hackensack Discussion / Having trouble getting vaccinated for COVID-19?
« Last post by BLeafe on March 08, 2021, 08:25:52 PM »
Me too................until I saw this on

Attention Hackensack Residents
Hackensack Health Department has requested Covid-19 Vaccine from the State DOH and is planning several small clinics for Hackensack eligible residents
If you have not been able to schedule a Covid-19 vaccine and are an eligible resident:
Email- with your name, address, phone number, and date of birth
If you do not have access to the internet Call- 201-646-3967

I emailed them last Thursday, March 4, and got a call today for an appointment to be vaccinated this Thursday morning with the Moderna vaccine at the Health Department office at City Hall.

I've been on the State list for almost 2 months and got nothing. Hackensack came through in 1 week.

If you're eligible, take advantage of this.

I think it's time to call an end to this project I've been shooting for 3 1/2 years.

From pre-demolition of the previous buildings to completion of the replacement, it's been a l-o-o-o-o-n-g journey.
