Chairman Wisniewski's Thanksgiving Statement
(Trenton)- Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee issued the following statement on Thanksgiving:
“Every year, Americans gather together with family and friends on Thanksgiving to celebrate and give thanks.
Last month, a devastating storm hit New Jersey, affecting many of us and our friends and family. While it is hard to feel celebratory when many are still struggling to recover, we still have reason to be thankful. We are thankful for the men and women of our National Guard who are helping those hardest hit by Sandy. We are thankful for those who helped shelter New Jersey’s displaced. We are thankful for Americans across this country who have donated or volunteered with relief organizations to help us get back on our feet. Most of all, we are thankful for our fellow New Jerseyans, who came together in a crisis and will work together rebuild our state even stronger.
I wish the people of New Jersey a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.”

“The new agenda is charter schools. It’s a profit-making business. $500 million will not be in our hands. The school board is an advisory board. We are not going to tell the governor to unleash the dollars. Don’t be fooled. It’s not abracadabra. It’s politics.” - Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones- PolitickerNJ.com
