Passaic County Democratic Committee Chairman John Currie had a small holiday party for his elected officials last night and a visitor arrived.
It was state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), who on Tuesday launched her gubernatorial candidacy.
“I introduced her,” said Currie, who on the same day Buono kicked off spent time with Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who’s mulling his own bid.
A Democratic Primary candidate whose YouTube message included a much talked about anti-boss message, Buono worked the room and talked to electeds in a low-key event.
On the day after she launched her candidacy, Buono received the formal public endorsements of Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Peter Barnes, state Sen. Bob Smith (D-17), and Assemblyman Peter Barnes (D-18).

"Some time ago, I asked who should fill the vacuum if Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop leaves that post to become governor. I’ll give you a possible candidate, even though I can already hear the groans in some corners of the city. The person I’m thinking of has a 'slight southern' drawl with a bit of Pollyana-esque (or is that Scarlett-esque?) quality about her that can mask an inquisitive and intelligent mind. Yes, I never thought I would say it, but that was my male chauvinistic first impression of Councilwoman Candice Osborne, who replaced Fulop as the Downtown representative. She doesn’t seem afraid to tackle issues that affect her constituents and while her questions at council sessions are softer than those of say Councilman Richard 'The Grate' Boggiano, that is just their respective natures." - Agustin Torres (The Political Insider)- The Jersey Journal
