    Fred, Thank you for the report.You have to admit that at least there will be a race in No.mebervThe voters who really want some change, may have a chance to get some.For too long the people in NJ have been brainwashed into thinking that they “old way” is the only way.That may not be so anymore.Did you see in PA, where Gov Randell is talking about doing some new things in his budget.Our leaders down in Trenton should take some notes!
