Woodbridge residents support McGreevey after resignation

(08/12/04) WOODBRIDGE - Many residents of Woodbridge, where Governor Jim McGreevey (D-NJ) was mayor from 1992-2001, do not want to see the governor resign after his admission of an extramarital affair with another man.

Despite their support, most residents were unanimous in their shock at Thursday's sudden announcement and resignation. Even people who have known McGreevey for a long time both socially and politically say they are stunned at the governor's sudden resignation.

Most Woodbridge residents feel that McGreevey's personal life will not affect his job performance in any way. Some say they are confident McGreevey will be back in politics at some point in the future.
