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.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
