On Codey’s Watch

New Jersey Senate President Dick Codey (former interim governor after McGreevey resigned) has championed moving the Garden State’s presidential primary to an earlier slot so New Jersey will be a player in national politics. Our dismay at that is well documented.

It seems that Codey, who has been in state government since 1974, has been in a leadership position as resident after resident has fled from this once proud state. With the latest Census Bureau report that New Jersey’s population has now fallen behind North Carolina’s, our state is primed to lose a seat in the US House of Representatives after the 2010 census.

Would it not be more prudent for Senator Codey to work toward building jobs, reducing taxes, and improving the quality of living in our state to become a player than to move an election? What is better for New Jersey?
