TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Raymond J. Lesniak which would require the State to expand participation in the HomeKeeper mortgage assistance program in order to help homeowners at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure was approved by the Senate today by a vote of 31-7, receiving final legislative approval.
“New Jersey is absolutely in the midst of a foreclosure crisis,” said Senator Lesniak, D-Union. “We’re second worst in the nation – behind only Florida – in the number of homeowners who are seriously delinquent in their home loans and at risk of being another foreclosure statistic. Governor Christie and his Administration have been asleep at the switch when it comes to mitigating the effects of this disastrous foreclosure crisis, and it’s time for New Jersey to utilize all the resources at our disposal to help keep people in their homes and pull our State back from the brink.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
