Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo's Re-Election Campaign Backed by State Democrats

December 9, 2013 at 10:41 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. announced his re-election campaign during a press conference in the gymnasium at Essex County College in Newark on Mon., Dec. 9. Democrats from all around the state on federal, state, county and local levels joined DiVincenzo in support of his candidacy.

Among those present at the press conference in support of DiVincenzo were U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Congressman Donald Payne, Jr., New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Assembly Speaker-Elect Vincent Prieto and 21 Democratic Committee Municipal Chairmen.

Elected in 2002, DiVincenzo is seeking a fourth term. He is the longest-serving county executive in Essex County history. The county, which skews heavily Democrat, is comprised of approximately 800,000 residents.

“Since I first took office in 2003, we have accomplished more than any other administration in Essex County history, including raising the county’s bond rating from junk status to AA2, its highest status ever; revitalizing each of our 22 county parks; completing significant infrastructure upgrades that provide us with a new correctional facility, psychiatric hospital center and government complex; and continuing to provide essential services to assist our residents during one of our nation’s most difficult economic eras,” DiVincenzo said.

“Today, politics is too much of a distraction, Booker said. "I’m concerned about people and progress. That is why I stand with Joe DiVincenzo. Look at his record. He is the most competent and qualified leaders.”

Menendez stated in a letter read at the conference, "Putting Essex County first is not a promotional catch phrase. There is no doubt that people in Essex County are in a much better place today than they were 10 years ago. That’s why I am endorsing Joe DiVincenzo.” 

“The work accomplished by Joe DiVincenzo is commendable and the results can be seen throughout the county," Congressman Payne said. "No one can argue with his performance and the results. It is a privilege to stand here in support of Joe D."

Other endorsements came from New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Assembly Speaker-Elect Vincent Prieto and Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop.

Sheriff Armando Fontoura, Essex County Sheriff since 1991, noted, "Joe’s accomplishments are a matter of record."

"If you ask people to look at his record, his re-election as County Executive should be unanimous," he added. "Joe D. is the best thing to ever happen to Essex County."

Pokémon Politics Go!

As a rule I stay away from popular fads.  Politics included.

 

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.  

 

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...

Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Into the toilet.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.
