The boardwalk’s reconstruction began on Jan. 9. It required more than a half million screws, Mayor Matt Doherty said.
“I never thought I’d be so happy about a half million screws,” said Menendez, who noted Belmar plays a special role in the lives of the state’s residents. “We have preserved that New Jersey birthright.”
Multiple sources are reporting that Senator Bob Menendez (D-Dominican Republic) is holding up a vote on a resolution honoring the late Margaret Thatcher; he is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Margaret Thatcher was a dynamic force as an ally to the United States in winning the cold War and overcoming the despotism and repression suffered by hundreds of millions at the hands of Soviet communism. She was a persuasive, transformative leader who shaped world events with the power of her personality. A grocer’s daughter, she was known, affectionately and deservedly as “The Iron Lady. Margaret Thatcher’s life and legacy of leadership will endure for many generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with the people of Great Britain and the world as we mourn her passing.”
Harper Polling released the results of a comprehensive survey Thursday afternoon, Save Jerseyans.
Most of its findings were unremarkable. Christie is crushing Buono, the Kean name still has currency in a GOP primary, New Jerseyans generally approve of the Sandy recovery efforts overseen by Governor Christie, etc. and so on.
The most interesting tidbit: 84% of respondents had “seen, read or heard anything in the news recently about Senator Robert Menendez” and, of that pool, 48% had a diminished opinion of him as a result.
Will any of this affect his career? Unlikely. Don’t look for justice on this earth! He’s not up for reelection until 2018. Who knows where we’ll be or what we’ll be talking about by then. What this poll does confirm for me is that it MATTERS when the media doesn’t do its job. Could the revelations and allegations concerning his relationship with Florida donor have impacted the 2012 race? We’ll never know for sure. The relevant point is that some folks in the Fourth Estate were determined never to find out. They know who they are, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
The lovely Celia Bigelow of Breitbart.com caught up with none other than Senator Bob Menendez at Penn Station last Thursday evening, Save Jerseyans. She asked a simple question when he disembarked from the train: “With the whole scandal and everything, why won’t you just come out and say where you were Easter Sunday 2012?”
A federal grand jury in Miami is investigating Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), examining his role in advocating for the business interests of a wealthy donor and friend, according to three people aware of the probe.
As part of the grand jury investigation, the three people said, federal agents have questioned witnesses about the interactions between Menendez and Melgen, who contributed $700,000 last year to Menendez and other Senate Democrats. The grand jury has also issued subpoenas for Melgen’s business and financial records, according to two people briefed on the probe who, like the others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation.”
