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.”

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
