Phone: 201.560.3074 Claire grew up in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and arrived in the United States three and a half years ago when she transferred from the University of Amsterdam to Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass. That was when her interest in journalism began, as a staff writer and later as news editor of the student run newspaper. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in History in 2008, she attended the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism from which she graduated in May, 2009. After Journalism School, she was a multimedia reporting fellow for news21.com before she joined the Jersey Journal. Her time at the Jersey Journal familiarized her with New Jersey politics, Hudson County and Hoboken in particular.  One of Claire's favorite activities in Hoboken is walking along the waterfront in Pier A Park, followed by drinking coffee in one of Hoboken's many coffee shops. That's where you'll find her, sitting behind a lap top. Local Hot Button Issues What do you think are the most important issues facing the community?  After talking to many people in the Hoboken community I have noticed that one issue people worry about, is corruption. People say they are tired of corruption in Hudson County and Hoboken, especially after 2009, the year in which Hoboken saw its mayor arrested during the corruption scandal in July.  Other issues that get Hobokenites talking include, the city's public schools the waterfront and taxes.	I have noticed that the people of Hoboken are involved and care about their community. Whether it's a parent, a young professional who just moved to Hoboken or somebody who has lived here all his life, everybody cares about the city. I am convinced that this will provide Hoboken Patch with a large and loyal following and I am excited to be covering this vibrant community.
