Targeted by workers in Trenton, DiVincenzo says he’s busy working in Essex

TRENTON– Tarred from afar as one half of the state Democratic Party’s problem by PBA leader Keith Dunn at today’s public workers rally, Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo denied he’s a dominant figure towering over Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-34).   

“What?” said DiVincenzo. “I’m busy doing Essex County’s work.”

One protester charged Oliver with “folding like a chair” in the face of health and pension benefits reform. She works for Essex County, the implication being that she does what DiVincenzo says.

A source today, moreover, told PolitickerNJ.com the Democratic caucus is suffering from Norcross-Joe D. fatigue, referring to the party South-North duopoly unembarrassed to work with Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

“I don’t know what that means – Joe D. fatigue,” said DiVincenzo Chief of Staff Phil Alagia.

“Joe D’s not in the caucus. Legislators have a tough job. We’re here protecting the taxpayers. I don’t know the specifics but health benefit reform is going to help us keep taxes low.”
