1. Congrats to InsiderNJ (aka PolitickerNJ 2, Electric Boogaloo) and Max Pizarro, the Return of the Jeditor of NJ Politics.
2. Glad to see the LD40 ticket moving forward! Corrado, Rooney and DePhillips are a solid team for a solid district. I’m glad sensible heads prevailed in PC. On to BC and another win.
3. In a state dominated by the Democratic Party, Republicans need to remember the bigger picture and stop cannibalizing each other for the sake of myopic agendas and aggrandized egos. We need legislators who can work with both parties and come up with limited government, pragmatic solutions to the soul crushing failure of our borrow, tax and spend absurdity of governing. We need to be mindful of the realities of the new political landscape and not lose sight of the everyman, and everywoman. Okay, enough preaching.
