Dick Codey makes first major address at League of Municipalities conference
Acting Governor Dick Codey made his first major speech since taking office at the League of Municipalities conference in Atlantic City Thursday.
Codey took the opportunity to outline his agenda in front of a supportive audience. Topics discussed during the speech included help for those struggling with mental health, school safety and support for stem cell research. The man who many feel will challenge Codey in the next election, Senator Jon Corzine (D-NJ), was part of the audience of leaders gathered to hear the acting governor's address.
Many people who heard Codey speak say he appears to be a no-nonsense person who will serve the state well during the next 14 months.
