Final Post

This will be my last post as a blogger on PoliticsNJ. I have really enjoyed the opportunity over the last year to comment on local and national issues and this site is a perfect forum for it. I am impressed with how far this site has come in the last decade – it is a rare forum that puts Bob Torricelli and Steve Lonegan on the same page. I look forward to watching the site’s continued success as it expands across the nation. This truly is a great New Jersey export.
As a final word, I want to entreat my fellow New Jerseyans to get involved in the political process this year. The historic presidential race has already generated tremendous excitement throughout the country and there are still more than eight more months of speeches, ads, rallies, policy ideas and debates to come. It is important that we continue this focus through the Congressional and local primaries in June and on to November’s general election. There are many very important races this year, including a number of rare open seats, and our participation is vital to ensuring we are properly represented in Washington.
This site is an integral part of politics here in New Jersey, and I am grateful that it exists as a daily (or hourly, depending on your fondness for it!) reminder of the importance of the political world. It has been my pleasure to be a part of its continued success and I wish the site and its editors all the best in the years to come.
