DeCROCE STATEMENT ON STATE OF STATE ADDRESS
Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce, R-Morris, Essex and Passaic, issued the following statement regarding Gov. Christie’s State of the State Address which he delivered to a Joint Session of the Legislature today:
“New Jersey is regrouping from a natural disaster the likes of which we have never before experienced. In the immediate aftermath, everyone acted with a common purpose and worked toward the common goal of getting our state back and running. However, as the governor pointed out, our job of helping people recover by rebuilding their communities is just beginning. As a society of compassion, we need to maintain our focus on finishing the job.
“We must use our collective voices and keep up the pressure on the federal government to deliver on the funding our state desperately needs. The governor is right on point when he says we can accomplish much more for the people of this state by working together instead of partisan bickering.”
“Governor Christie has successfully addressed significant issues during his first three years in office, and the people of New Jersey believe he is more than capable of leading our state as we rebuild lives and restore hope.”

"It's incredible, it's a dream. I would never have imagined that I would be running for mayor, but to have Ken Gibson say that, I didn't expect it. Having Ken Gibson on my side is the ultimate reference check. It's the ultimate in street credibility. Mr. Gibson said it, when he was running for mayor, people said that they weren't ready, but Mr. Gibson said 'ready or not, here I come.' I think that's apropos for my campaign. Newark is ready for this." Newark Mayoral candidate Ras Baraka- PolitickerNJ.com
