Putting Camden County First (in Essex!): The Sequel


Essex County Freeholders today voted to extend the insurance contract for Conner Strong and Buckelew, the firm of South Jersey Power Broker George Norcross III, but did not approve a new three-year contract for the boss.

The vote for an etension was 8-1, with Freeholder President Brendan Gill voting “no.”

“I think to give them time to shop,” said a politics watcher.

The South Jersey-based power broker who got behind Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo at the outset of his 18-year career as executive, Norcross – and ward Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) – late last year failed to prevent Essex County Democratic Committee Chairman LeRoy Jones from cutting a deal with Democratic State Party Chairman John Currie sooner than prioritize Norcross’ Southern Strategy.
