Gov. Jon Corzine, seeking re-election to his second term, has landed a major speaking slot this afternoon: he’ll deliver the keynote address at the Grovers Mill Pond fish restocking event in West Windsor.
West Windsor is the site of a hotly contested non-partisan mayoral election next month between incumbent Shing-Fu Hsueh, who backs Corzine, and Councilman Charles Morgan, who has endorsed Republican Christopher Christie. Corzine's appearance at the fish restocking event will give Hsueh a photo opportunity.
The government has spent nearly $5 million dredging the 37-acre pond, removing nearly three feet of sediment that has built up since the pre-Revolutionary War period. The Department of Environmental Protection will be restocking the pond with “various species of fish” and Corzine will be on hand to supervise the project in person.
