In the middle of all this campaigning, I was pleased to host a visiting delegation of Australian Members of Parliament sponsored by the US State Department and American Council of Young Political Leaders. We sat down with Sheriff James Gannon, County Clerk Ann Grossi, Freeholder Hank Lyon, Somerset County Freeholder Director Peter Palmer, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka (this was bipartisan, after all), Senator Cory Booker's state director, and many other dignitaries. Big thanks to fellow ACYPL alum Erica Jedynak for all her help!
But the highlight for the group was our visit to Alstede Farms and the Morris County 4-H Fair in Chubb Park. Big thanks to Kurt, Sam, and Maxine at Alstede Farms for the warm welcome, and for showing these Aussies why New Jersey really is the Garden State.
