The great and the good of NJ politics will descend on Atlantic City this week for the NJ League of Municipalities’ annual conference (aka “the League”), a who’s who of business, government, and politics. By day, potentates, delegates and speakers hit the convention center for networking and to check out the latest goods and services for municipal governments.
By night, the #NJLeague has spawned its own ecosystem of cigar mixers, cocktail parties and dessert receptions from dusk till dawn.
State Senator Holly Schepisi decisively won re-election earlier this month. She’s in Atlantic City to make sure her Bergen County district is at the table for whatever deals go down at the League. She shared some thoughts about NJ’s recent elections and my other favorite topic, legalized pot.
