Trenton- Sunday is Veterans Day, an annual holiday celebrating those who have served in the armed forces. Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, released the following statement commemorating Veterans Day.
“On Veterans Day, we celebrate and honor the service of the brave men and women who have risked their lives to protect our freedoms. We are proud to have re-elected a Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama, who has honored their service by bringing them home from Iraq, working to end the war in Afghanistan, allowing them to serve openly, and honoring our commitments to veterans after they leave the service.
Following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, New Jerseyans have been helped by members of the armed services from around the country as we struggle to rebuild. We are particularly grateful for their work here and we thank them for keeping our communities safe and assisting as we recover.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
