HOBOKEN - Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer has won a second term over two challengers.

Assemblyman Ruben Ramos and Councilman Tim Occhipinti had also been vying for the job.

Zimmer said the challenge was getting voters to understand the importance of local elections.

"It's always a challenge to make sure that people understand that really the local elections, as far as your everyday quality of life, those things all tie to local elections," Zimmer said.
