Campaigning For NJ Governor Continues

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Friday, Governor Christie held a campaign event where he spoke to the Fire Chief Association and thanked them for their most recent efforts in Seaside Heights after much of the boardwalk was burnt down from a fire that got out of control.

During that time Christie was extremely hands on working closely with these firemen to take control of the blaze. He went on to discuss how safety would continue to be a priority if he does win the election which is a little over 2-weeks away.

Christie brought up the hashtag #DearDC citing the Garden State as a place where people work together to get things done.

“Every one of these solutions that I just referenced, every one of them is bipartisan.” He said.

Milly Silva who is running for Lieutenant Governor alongside Senator Barbara Buono chimed in on the upcoming gubernatorial election and the special senate election that just took place.

It surprised many people that Cory Booker did not mention his fellow democrats in his victory speech after he won the New Jersey senate seat.

“It was so important that Cory make sure that he celebrates the victory for New Jersey, that he’s going to be the voice of reason in Washington D.C. for us. So that election night speech was about Cory’s accomplishments here in New Jersey and how he is going to be the next bright star in Washington D.C.” Silva said.

Currently, she and Senator Buono are trailing Chris Christie by about 29% which is a significant gap this close to the election. And it’s got to be frustration as a democrat in New Jersey to know that there are twice as many registered democrats in the Garden State compared to Republicans, yet the Republican candidate for governor is drastically beating those on the democratic ticket.

“There are so many people that understood that in this wild time we have a governor that spent $24M of state money to have a special election on a Wednesday in October. So many people needed to make sure that we turned people out to the polls to elect Cory Booker as our next U.S. Senator and now that he has been elected, in the less than three weeks that are left, all of the focus is about making sure that the folks will come out on November 5th to elect Barbara Buono as our governor.” She said.

Silva went on to discuss how she and Buono are making history. “Not only are we the only all-female ticket in the state of New Jersey. I’m also the first Latina candidate for statewide office, but we have the opportunity to elect two women leaders who are going to stand up for middle class families and working people and that really is what this election is about.” She said.

Silva also chimed in on the on-going discussion about Governor Christie’s weight. “I don’t think it’s an issue, but I think it’s a question of whether he is fit for office and I think his record on the issue says that he is not good for office” She said.

    There are countless treasures to be found along the Long Beach Island shoreline. Sand dollars, conch shells and even ten thousand year-old arrowheads! That's exactly what happened last week to 10-year old Noah Cordle who was walking along the beach and stumbled over the ancient artifact. “I thought it was a mussel shell, but it looked kind of too pointy to be a mussel shell and so I picked it up and it was an arrowhead,” Cordle explained.
