PROUD OF OUR YOUTH...The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Girls State Championship Swim Team is honored at the DECCA ‘Student in Government Night’ during the Scotch Plains Council meeting Tuesday.

A few weeks ago, we lamented over the greed and disregard for the law displayed by Newark Mayor Sharpe James (also a state senator) as he put $80 million of city money into private trusts that he would control after leaving office. This week, Governor Jon Corzine is challenging the mayor/senator by freezing the funds. This is a ray of hope for New Jersey. The Governor has the guts to stand up to powerful individuals in his own party. Every citizen and honest politicians of both parties must step forward and support Gov. Corzine on this matter of corruption. As the governor continues on this anti-corruption quest, it will be easy to see through the politicians who would try to stop him. See detail and provide your thoughts.
