So Governor Corzine Lost, What Else Is New In N. J. Politics?

Good Luck Governor Elect Christie.
I'm willing to give you a chance. I don't have anything against all Republicans,
I just think being a Democrat is better!

I personally like Jon Corzine. I think that he is an honest man.
The reason Corzine lost his bid for re election is that He didn't know how to play the game, New Jersey politics are tricky.
Corzine didn't know how to run the New Jersey Political Machine.
The machine ran him.

In plain language he wasn't tough enough and everybody walked all over him.
He didn't know how to "Lay Down The Law"

Naturally, they all ignored anything he told them to do.
Boy did they dance around him!

Chris Cristie's winning may do good after all.
Since he was The U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey maybe he can get the guns and drugs off the streets once and for all

Note to Governor Christie
You have your work cut out for you as our new Governor.
We the citizens of NJ, hope that you are prepared for the challenge you have decided to undertake!
We want you to make Gun Control and The Elimination Of Drugs And Guns
Your Top Priority!

I'm not talking on the street level either! These people are just
victims of the government's failure to arrest and prosecute the
traffickers, higher up's and ring leaders.

Something needs to be done about all the illegal guns on the street.
There are so many illegal guns in America, we're responsible for the flood of them being exported to Mexico. I believe in the right to bear arms. There just needs to be very serious reform in the ways people are allowed to purchase them.

Governor Christie, you need to create some kind of mandate to address and solve this problem immediately!
How you handle this matter will dictate the tone of your future as Governor.

And implement a good Drug Education Program for our schools.
Let's teach our children the facts about drugs, before the streets do!

*And let's make sure these kids are getting enough to eat so they can be happy, healthy and think clearly. Let's increase benefits to families with dependent children and school meal programs!

Those old anti drug tv commercials were really good. You could make new ones and include anti violence strategies as well as the anti drug messages.

My Dear Old High School Principal, Mr. Alexander O'Connor, himself, always told us that someday he was going to catch us smoking and that "A Word To The Wise Is Sufficient".

He also said "Forewarned Is Forearmed". We didn't like either saying back then, but it's all so true!
Although, we love Mr. O'Connor. I would have never graduated without his help! !

Gunfire Hits Two People, Ending A Jersey City House Party

Gunfire that blasted through a window and wounded two men Sunday put an end to a Jersey City house party after an argument broke out with people who did not want to pay the cover to be admitted, reports said.

When officers arrived at Bergen and Ege avenues at about 12:30 a.m. they found a 27-year-old Rose Street man in the residence. He said "I'm shot in the leg. They shot through the window," reports said.

A 31-year old Washington, D.C., man took off running after hearing gunfire, but when he got to the corner of Morton Place and Kennedy Boulevard he realized he had been shot in the ankle, reports said.

Witnesses told police there was a cover charge to enter the party and the fight broke out between the Rose Street man and people who did not want to pay to get in. The resident of the home said she was upstairs when she heard eight shots ring out, reports said.

Police spoke to more than 20 people attending the party but were able to gather little information on the shooter, reports said. They all said they heard the shots being fired outside and tried to hide, reports said.

Both victims were taken to the Jersey City Medical Center for treatment, reports said.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Jersey City police tip line at (201) 547-JAIL.

Hudson County named in pay-to-play lawsuit

Hudson County is the subject of the state's first known pay-to-play lawsuit.
CFG Health Systems is accusing the county of circumventing the law when it awarded a contract for medical services at its corrections and juvenile detention centers to a campaign donor and former employee.

CFG, of Evesham, filed the suit against Hudson County, the county Board of Freeholders and Correctional Health Services LLC in Hudson County Superior Court this week. The suit seeks to have the contract voided.

Geoffrey Perselay, president of Correctional Health Services, is a former county administrator who also served as acting warden of the corrections center.
Hudson County spokesman James Kennelly called the suit baseless.

Verification of Disclosure

There is an important difference between the two laws that must be taken into account during this review. The PCD includes contributors that are not barred from making reportable contributions: i.e., a contribution from a partner with less than 10% ownership (or a spouse) must be reported on the PCD, but the contribution is not barred under Chapter 19 (only someone with 10% ownership or more is barred from contributing).
