This is an excellent new video from the Corzine ’09 website, it contains highlights from President Barack Obama and Governor Jon Corzine’s rally in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Daily Archives: July 25, 2009
Last Thursday, I visited Holmdel, NJ to stand with a great leader for New Jersey — your governor, Jon Corzine. Jon and I were joined by thousands of people like you who share our commitment to building a better future for New Jersey and our nation.
We live in challenging times. Now more than ever, we need leaders with the strength to make tough decisions and the courage to do the right thing — leaders who bring people together for a common purpose, and fight for the most vulnerable among us. Jon is one of those leaders.
I’m proud to have Jon as a partner as we all work to get our economy back on track, and I hope to work with him for years to come. But if I learned one thing from my campaign last year, it’s that none of us can do it alone. It will take thousands of people like you coming together and working as one to build a better future for New Jersey.
Today, I’m hoping you’ll stand with me to support a bold leader for New Jersey. Please volunteer for Jon’s campaign today.
The people of New Jersey know the cost of this economic crisis. The past months have not been easy, and weathering this storm has tested our spirit and required great sacrifice. But in Jon, you have a governor who has built consensus to help families get through it, while putting the state on a path to long-term prosperity.
In trying times, Jon is a fighter for the middle class. He created a strong economic recovery plan designed to retain and attract business, instituted major reforms to ease unfair property tax burdens across the state, and made critical investments in schools and transportation infrastructure that will leave New Jersey stronger and more competitive in the years to come.
I know Jon’s not done yet. We have a lot more work to do. Jon has set New Jersey in the right direction, and if you stand with him — and with me — the time and effort we invest today will pay off ten fold in the better New Jersey we’ll build together.
The stakes in this election are high, so I’m asking you to do your part — volunteer for Jon’s campaign today.
President Barack Obama
Hooray, It’s Saturday and you know what that means, it’s time for some cartoons!
And what better way to start the day then sitting down and getting caught up on Astro Boy before his new movie comes out.
Health Insurance Reform, Small Business and Your Questions
The President discusses a key factor that has been considered in the development of the health insurance reform proposals that are being considered: the impact of reform on small business. Go to WhiteHouse.gov to read a new Council of Economic Advisers report and give your feedback. July 25, 2009.
Corzine: “No fucking way.”
Responding to former Morris County Prosecutor and gubernatorial candidate Michael Murphy when asked if he was going to drop his bid for re-election.
A short while ago I received the following email from the Corzine09 campaign announcing Loretta Weinberg as Governor Corzines choice to be his running mate as Lt. Governor:
This November, for the first time in our state’s history, New Jerseyans will have the opportunity to vote both for Governor and for the newly-created office of Lieutenant Governor.
I am proud to announce that I have selected State Senator Loretta Weinberg as my nominee to serve as New Jersey’s first Lieutenant Governor.
I hope you’ll join both of us tomorrow, Saturday July 25th, at 2 p.m. at the Bergen Performing Arts Center at 30 North Van Brunt Street in Englewood.
Those of you in Bergen County probably already know Senator Weinberg well. She has served the Bergen County community with honesty, honor, and distinction since she was first elected to the State Assembly in 1992 and, then, as a State Senator since 2005.
For those of you who may not know Senator Weinberg, I know that you will be impressed by her legislative experience, the significant and positive change she’s brought to our state, and by her personal values and unquestionable integrity.
Often called the “conscience of the Legislature” because of her principled stands on issues large and small, Loretta Weinberg isn’t afraid to take on the tough fights:
Loretta has been leading the charge on ethics reform for years. She’s passed legislation to require greater financial disclosure by local government officials, toughen regulations for lobbyists, strengthen anti-nepotism rules on campaign contributions and limit public contracts to businesses that make political contributions.
She has put the safety of our children and New Jersey residents first. Loretta battled the powerful gun lobby to protect our children by mandating safety locks on all handguns and fought to lower the blood alcohol level state-wide for which a person can be considered to be guilty of drunk driving.
She is a tireless advocate for protecting New Jerseyan’s health. Against stiff opposition, Loretta took on Big Tobacco and sponsored the law making indoor public places smoke-free. She stood up to insurance companies and succeeded in forcing hospitals to provide longer stays for new moms and their babies. And she has made combating autism a primary focus as the sponsor of several laws funding treatment, education and research for autistic children.
The list goes on and on. For over forty years, Loretta Weinberg has been an advocate for better health care, honest government, environmental protection, women’s rights, and protecting the pocketbooks of New Jersey’s working families.
She shares my commitment to our state and my vision for what New Jersey can be, and I cannot think of a better person to serve as New Jersey’s first Lieutenant Governor. I’m confident that as you get to know her you will become as big a fan of Loretta Weinberg as I am.
I’m confident that Loretta’s steadfast commitment, her deep legislative experience, and her personal integrity will prove to be invaluable as we continue to build on the remarkable successes of my first term. I know that Loretta will be a partner that I can trust and will become a unique and important voice in the next Corzine Administration.
I’m confident that she will set the highest standard for what New Jersey’s Lieutenant Governor can and should be, and I’m looking forward to working side-by-side with her over the next four years.
I know that together we will continue to do great things for the state of New Jersey.
Governor Jon Corzine
“I KNEW SHE was THE ONE, THE RIGHT choice for Lt. Governor!! YES! She’s a fighter! She is full of life and more!! Loretta Weinberg: “The people’s lt. governor! Great Choice, Gov. Corzine!!”
“Ms Weinberg is smart and experienced and good for NJ.”
