>Anyone that follows this blog on a regular basis knows Robert (Bob) Brown. Bob is a friend of mine whom I’ve gotten to know over the past 5 years, while he was busy running twice for the NJ State Assembly in the old 13th District in 2007 & 2009.
When I congratulated him on receiving the Democratic line for the open NJ State Senate seat in the new 12th legislative district, I asked him if he had anything that he wished to comment on for the blog and for any potential voters in his new district.
In pure Bob Brown fashion he asked me to pass along his pledge:
“I pledge to tighten my belt and cut the fat by losing 40 pounds between now and election day. I ask the Governor to share in the sacrifice and cut his fat first before cutting other peoples benefits.”
I can tell already that Bob Brown’s campaign for a State Senate seat will be one to remember and I wish him all the best!
