PATERSON – Donning caps and sporting fierce grins, politicians this morning did their best to pretend all of this is really ultimately just about baseball in an event outside the dilapidated Hinchcliffe Stadium above the Great Falls.
But there was another pastime that inevitably leaked into the ceremony officially designating Hinchcliffe a national landmark, and an especially bruising one with 27 days left to go in the Paterson Mayor’s race.
At the center of the drama, ties flapping in the breeze, stood incumbent Mayor Jeff Jones and U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9).Read More >

TRENTON – Thanks, but no thanks.
A state lawmaker helping to lead the charge into investigating the Gov. Chris Christie administration over the George Washington Bridge lane closings say he’s “frustrated” with the documents the legislative committee recently received from the law firm hired by the administration to conduct an internal review of the controversy.
Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-19) said while it appears Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher complied with the joint legislative investigatory committee’s demand to handover interview notes related to the so-called Mastro report, the documents will do little to further the committee’s investigation.Read More >
Public satisfaction with New Jersey’s Superstorm Sandy recovery effort has dropped below 50% for the first time since the storm hit nearly 18 months ago, according to the latest Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll. Nearly 3-in-4 Garden State residents say that the aid process has been too slow and place the blame more on state management of the process than on federal regulatory requirements.
Just under half of New Jersey residents say they are either very (14%) or somewhat (34%) satisfied with the state’s Sandy recovery effort. A similar number are either very (21%) or somewhat (22%) dissatisfied. This marks the first time less than half the state expresses satisfaction with the recovery’s progress. Statewide satisfaction surpassed two-thirds throughout 2013, topping out at 76% in September. Satisfaction stood at 66% in December 2013 before falling to 55% in February of this year and then to 48% in the current poll.Read More >
