Local Hoboken officials express support for ranked choice voting bill

first_imgHOBOKEN – In a press release, Hoboken Councilwoman Emily Jabbour called on state legislative leaders to advance bill A-1801, which permits the use of instant runoff voting in local elections.“Instant runoff voting is something we would like to explore in Hoboken in order to ensure we do not return to the days of expensive, low-voter turnout runoff elections that are historically susceptible to political gamesmanship and potential election mischief,” Jabbour said. “With the passage of A-1801, we would be allowed to offer ranked choice voting to Hoboken residents, which asks voters on Election Day to list their first, second, and even third choice of candidates, incentivizing positive campaigning and encouraging candidates to appeal to everyone.”Instant runoff voting is a system that allows each resident to vote for a preferred candidate, as well as alternative choices in order of preference. In the event that no candidate receives a majority of the votes in an election, the people who voted for the last place candidate will have their second choice options added to the total. The process would continue until one candidate is a majority winner.Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro of Hoboken, a sponsor of the legislation, said she supported the bill and wanted to give municipalities the option.“Offering ranked choice voting to our municipalities would change the negative dialogue in our campaigns, save money for candidates and the government, and avoid winter runoff elections, which often result in a lower participation rate,” Chaparro said in the press release. “This bill would not force any municipalities into using ranked choice voting, but rather would permit local governments to implement this option should they see fit in their community. I was happy to discuss this important issue with Councilwoman Jabbour, and I hope this bill will move forward expeditiously.”The bill is currently awaiting a hearing in the Assembly State and Local Government Committee.“I encourage Hoboken residents to contact their state representative, Assemblywoman Chaparro, and members of the committee, to inform them that this bill is important to you, it has your support, and is crucial to avoiding the days of the past when machine candidates fight to just get to a runoff and then take advantage of low voter turnout in subsequent runoff elections,” Jabbour said in the release.The city council has already approved of a referendum on November’s ballot which asks the public whether or not the city should reinstate runoff elections.The council also passed a resolution urging state legislators to consider allowing instant runoff elections in New Jersey. ×last_img read more

Doughnut Week inspiration

first_imgBakers across the UK have been signing up for this year’s National Doughnut Week and are urging others to take part with ideas on how to maximise sales.Kim Cowley of Warings Bakery chain in Berkshire has taken part every year since Doughnut Week began. Soon to open its sixth store, the chain gets everyone involved, with employees dressing up as popular children’s characters and linking with local radio to create competitions, offering a baker’s dozen of doughnuts every day. “Every year we try to create special limited-edition doughnuts for our customers and look forward to the weird creations that are requested,” said Cowley.NA president Mike Holling of Birds the Confectioners in Derby said it is a great week for team-building: “Every baker should have a go. It doesn’t take a lot of effort, thanks to all the support provided by sponsor BakeMark, and every year for the last five years, we have increased the amount of funds raised.”His recommendations are fancy dress and lots of cream, caramel and jam doughnuts.National Doughnut Week runs from 10-17 May and raises money for the Children’s Trust. It offers craft bakers a chance to increase sales while raising money for charity. This year, all participating bakers will be entered into a draw to win a trip for two to London. The winner will visit The Children’s Trust to see how the money raised is spent before being treated to dinner and an overnight stay in a top London hotel.

Press release: Top marks for Highways England visit to Birdlip Primary School

first_img This visit offered a great opportunity to explain our work and raise the issue of road safety with a young and very enthusiastic audience. More information about proposals for the A417 can be found on the scheme website where Highways England hold a live monthly web chat. Members of the public can join in and ask questions about the scheme.For more information on the roles and responsibilities of a Highways England traffic officer go to the Traffic Officer web pages.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer. The bridge building was designed to be a fun activity for the students while allowing us to start a conversation about the importance of engineering in our everyday lives. Traffic officers Lynne Watkins and Dave Hayett, who normally spend their days patrolling the M5 in Gloucestershire, took time out to visit the primary school as part of a Highways England awareness day.During the visit this week, five and six-year-old pupils got the chance to chat to the traffic officers about their jobs and see their patrol vehicle and the equipment used every day as they patrol England’s major A roads and motorways.Birdlip Primary School teacher, Sue Harding, said: Children in a Traffic Officer vehicle during the visitOn the same day the team behind the A417 Missing Link also attended the school to host a bridge-building exercise with nine and ten-year-olds. The team helped the pupils design and build their own bridge as part of a longer-term STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Highways England initiative.Mike Goddard, A417 Senior Project Manager said: The A417 is a vital route that helps people get to work, school, visit friends and family. We are working to upgrade this section of road to improve safety, support the economy and ease congestion and pollution, making it more convenient for its regular users and improving the well-being of those who live nearby.center_img The A417 team is currently putting its expertise to use refining proposals for the upgrade to the A417. Known locally as the ‘missing link’ at Air Balloon roundabout, this stretch of single carriageway road between the Brockworth bypass and Cowley roundabout restricts the flow of traffic on a key route which is otherwise a continuous dual carriageway between the M5 at Gloucester and the M4 at Swindon.Upgrading this section to dual carriageway will help facilitate 54,000 new homes and 370 hectares of employment land due to be created before 2031, helping people live and work, and businesses to invest in the south west.Mike Goddard added: Children’s learning is always enhanced by real life, hands-on experiences and the children really enjoyed meeting the traffic officers and hearing about the important role they play keeping people safe on the M5. This scheme presents some particular challenges given the route passes through the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, alongside the very challenging topography. Around 30 pupils took part in the session and had a chance to sit in the traffic officers’ vehicle and try out the controls.Highways England traffic officer, Lynne Watkins, said:last_img read more

European equities drag down Spanish pension funds’ Q1 returns

first_imgStrengthening financial markets throughout March enabled Spanish occupational pension funds to achieve positive returns for the month, according to figures from Mercer’s Pension Investment Performance Service (PIPS).The average return for the month was 1.1%, the biggest – 2.4% – coming from non-EU equity portfolios.EU equity portfolios returned 2.1%, fixed income 0.3%.However, this did not compensate for the turbulence in the second half of 2015 and the first two months of this year. Across all asset classes, returns for the first quarter of 2016 were -0.4%, with EU equities returning -7.6% and non-EU equities -3.5%.Fixed income portfolios, however, made gains of 1.5%.The PIPS survey covers a large sample of Spanish pension funds, most of them occupational schemes.Over the 12 months to end-March 2016, fixed income returned exactly 0.0%, while EU equities returned -15.4% and non-EU equities -9.3%.Xavier Bellavista, principal at Mercer, said: “The quarter has seen volatile performances, especially in equity markets. EU equity assets had the worst negative performance, but non-EU equity assets also posted negative returns, especially because of the performance of non-EU currencies.”He added: “Fixed income assets are also increasing in volatility and have incurred a negative performance for some months.“EU fixed income assets made positive returns for the quarter to end-March, but lower returns are now expected because fixed income indices posted a negative performance during April.”Bellavista said non-EU fixed income assets had been affected by the negative performance of some emerging fixed income assets, and also by the depreciation in non-EU currencies.Meanwhile, according to Spain’s Investment and Pension Fund Association (INVERCO), occupational pension funds returned -3.33% for the 12 months to 31 March 2016.         Average annualised returns for Spanish occupational funds were 4.66% for the three years to 31 March 2016, and 4.67% for the five years to that date.As at the end of March 2016, total assets under management for the occupational pensions sector stood at €35bn, a decrease of 3.4% over the past year.Total pension assets, including those in individual plans, now amount to €103.1bn, while the number of participants in the occupational system remains stable, at just over 2m.According to INVERCO, the gradual shift away from domestic assets continues, with an average 60.6% of portfolios now invested domestically, compared with 61.4% at end-December 2015.Non-domestic assets made up 22% of portfolios as at the same date, with the balance in cash and technical provisions.Fixed income investments make up 57.3% of portfolios, barely unchanged over three months.The biggest single component of pension fund portfolios – 32.3% – is still invested in Spanish government bonds, with a further 16.3% in Spanish corporate bonds.Bellavista highlighted what he considered to be the most significant change in asset allocation in corporate pension funds in the past 15 years – the increased allocation to non-EU fixed income assets.“Historically, this allocation was close to zero,” he said. “But, in the past three to four years, it has increased to around 6% of corporate pension fund portfolios.”Over the past couple of years, he added, Spanish pension fund managers have been increasing the duration of fixed income portfolios in response to the extremely low interest-rate environment.The average duration of corporate pension funds rose from 3.5 years at end-2013 to 4.5 years at end-2015.Meanwhile, an average 21.2% of portfolios is invested in equities, down by 1.4 percentage points since end-December, according to INVERCO.The category of ‘other investments’ – real estate and alternatives, almost all invested domestically – has increased from 3.6% at end-December 2015 to 4%, more than double the percentage in December 2011.last_img read more
