"Hey, great job yesterday. I know it’s not a fun topic, and not nearly as fun as beating up on Frank Lautenberg, but you did great, and I wanted to thank you.”

Quote of the day

"Some time ago, I asked who should fill the vacuum if Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop leaves that post to become governor. I’ll give you a possible candidate, even though I can already hear the groans in some corners of the city. The person I’m thinking of has a 'slight southern' drawl with a bit of Pollyana-esque (or is that Scarlett-esque?) quality about her that can mask an inquisitive and intelligent mind. Yes, I never thought I would say it, but that was my male chauvinistic first impression of Councilwoman Candice Osborne, who replaced Fulop as the Downtown representative. She doesn’t seem afraid to tackle issues that affect her constituents and while her questions at council sessions are softer than those of say Councilman Richard 'The Grate' Boggiano, that is just their respective natures." - Agustin Torres (The Political Insider)

Quote of the day

"Some have suggested to me that I just need to think outside the box when it comes to city government. My response? We need to blow up the box, and re-purpose it into a functioning, accountable and highly ethical city government. When your house has termites, you don't put new windows and siding on it. You rip it down to the foundation and start over. That's exactly what we need to do with this city government." - Trenton Mayoral candidate Jim Golden

Quote of the day

“I see my opponents have now become experts on our military. Have either of them served on active duty? What is their expertise on our military? Have they ever been assigned to any operational units?" retired Navy Rear Admiral Mo Hill, Republican candidate for Congress in the 3rd District

Quote of the day

"It sounds like Councilman Baraka is talking about regionalization similar to what happened to the Camden Police Department. Clearly, if you regionalize, there is going to be a layoff of Newark workers. We cant afford to have more cops laid off right now. During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.

Quote of the day

“Unfortunately for the governor, the investigation appears to be turning him into a more polarizing figure. As recently as late last year, his approval numbers were consistently bigger than his disapproves - by a pretty big margin - and more voters liked everything about him than disliked everything about him. One of the defining characteristics of the governor that makes him a nationally sought after Republican is his widespread appeal in a Democratic state. Bridgegate continues to erode that asset.” - FDU Poll Director Krista Jenkins.

Quote of the day

"The governor has allowed political cronyism to continue and even flourish, rather than stamp it out, with some of his closest confidants enriching themselves through millions of dollars in state contracts, and legal and lobbying fees, an Asbury Park Press review of thousands of pages of campaign, lobbying and contracting documents found."

- The Asbury Park Press

Quote of the day

"I can talk to folks on the corner, and I can talk to people in the boardroom." - Newark Mayoral candidate Ras Baraka
