Strong Towns

Strongtowns, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “support a model of development that allows America’s cities, towns and neighborhoods to grow financially strong and resilient, is having a competition to determine which town in America best represents their mission statement.

If you’re into a different kind of March Madness (or just want to supplement your fun), their competition is a Sweet 16 of sorts pitting towns across America to decide our strongest town.

Hoboken is against Collingswood, NJ in the first round. Please vote for Hoboken at the following link by scrolling to the bottom, selecting Hoboken and inputting your email address: Vote Hoboken as the Strongest Town

Voting closes tomorrow, so make sure you do it today and share with your friends. Here’s the current bracket:
