SIMON SWORN IN TO GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Assemblywoman Donna Simon, who won a special election in November to serve the unexpired term of the late Assemblyman Pete Biondi, was sworn in today to the General Assembly.
“I am truly honored to be able to serve in the General Assembly and represent the people in the 16th Legislative District,” said Simon. “I look forward to continue working with members on both sides of the aisle on important issues facing our state. I remain committed to representing the interests of taxpayers and will be a strong advocate on their behalf in Trenton.”
Commenting on Simon’s swearing in, along with her Republican colleague Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce, Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick said, “I am so very proud to lead a caucus that has state representatives as talented and honest as Assemblywomen Simon and DeCroce. They are true treasures of the state of New Jersey and their districts are very fortunate to have them as their advocates.”

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
