New Jersey Mayor

Keep Snooki's Spin-Off

OUT of My Town!!!

Snooki and Jwoww's new spin-off just hit a nasty snag in New Jersey -- because the town where they planned to shoot the reality show has rejected their request for a film permit.

The Mayor of Hoboken Dawn Zimmer just made the announcement on her website, claiming the Hoboken Film Commission unanimously voted to deny the permit to 495 Productions "based on protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents."

According to the mayor -- there's a laundry list of problems with approving a 24-hour permit in Hoboken, the least of which is a local policy that prohibits ALL filming after 11pm in residential areas.

The mayor claims filming the show would result in an "unacceptable lessening of the quality of life for the local residents and businesses" -- causing traffic, creating large noisy crowds, and completely disrupting day-to-day life.

Of course, Snooki can also stimulate a local economy -- so is banning her really worth it? Probably.

YES I am glad that a Mator finally stepped up and put a stop to this BS spin off. The original made a group of uneducated disgusting a0holes wealthy.

How would you like to be known for, going on TV, having sex with multiple partners, cheating, lying, and drinking yourself into an embarrassing drunken stupor night after night, and getting paid for it.

Is that pleasing to God to earn a living that way, is that a pure and honest way to live? Do none of these Jersey Shore bed partners not feel the least twinge of guilty for that kind of lifestyle or promoting it to impressionable young teens?

Do they not have remorse or a conscience? Seriously? How do they sleep at night and feel good about themselves for acting like they have and sleeping around and partying to the stage of puking all the time?

Stimulate the economy? Sorry but not necessary considering a ton of Hoboken residents are professionals in their 20's and 30's that commute ino the City everyday. Plus Hoboken already has the Cake Boss but if it will keep them from the shore I am for it.

Your headline is not the case at all, they wouldn't grant the same license to George Clooney, it has nothing to do with Snooki!

Too bad the Calabasas Mayor don't have the same cojones and put a stop to the Kartrashians tv nonsense. That will never happen in Hollyweird, $$$$ always out-rules morals here, sad.

You mean there are some intelligent people still left in New Jersey? That mayor should receive some kind of presidential award for helping to slow down the dumbing of America!!!
