PolitickerNJ reporter Chase Brush is on the ground in Washington, D.C. for all your PolitickerNJ swearing-in ceremony coverage.
Also down there, specifically in attendance for the swearing-in of U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo could be seen with his arm around Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.
It was hardly a Chris Christie-Jerry Jones-like public display of affection.
“Respectful,” was how one insider described the vibe between the two northern politicians.
From left to right, above: Essex County Freeholder Leonard Luciano, Essex Freeholder Brendan Gill, Fulop, DiVincenzo, Booker Chief of Staff Mo Butler, and DiVincenzo Chief of Staff Phil Alagia.
The appearance came just days after Fulop received a less than red carpet welcome to DiVincenzo’s own searing-in ceremony.
