"The pipeline proposal represents a lack of respect for the rule of law, utter disregard for New Jersey's natural resources and an assault on the ownership of private property. Considering the fundamental right of individual landowners to retain their properties and the fundamental responsibility of the state to protect our waterways, wildlife and open space, it would be irresponsible to move forward with this project."Read more

As I come upon my first 100 days in office, I’ve been reflecting on the time we spent campaigning. As this article explains, my campaign was reliant on statistical modeling, which provided the evidence we used to pinpoint the voters most likely to vote for me. We allowed the evidence to guide us – and this is the same approach I have been using to legislate.

"This is the right thing to do for victims who have already suffered too much," said Zwicker (D-Somerset/Mercer/Middlesex).

MANVILLE – On Saturday evening, Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker joined a grateful Hillsborough community to say “Thank You” to hundreds of Fire Fighters who helped to put out a warehouse fire in February.
The fire at Veteran’s Industrial Park began on February 11th, and continued into February 12th, shutting down route 206, and destroying two 240,000 square foot buildings. The five-alarm fire drew more than 500 firefighters, from 107 different departments, and involved more than 200 emergency vehicles.
Derek R. Basista of Charity Events Group donated his time and expertise to help put together the benefit dinner. In addition to Assemblyman Zwicker, speakers included Rep. Leonard Lance; Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli; Hillsborough Mayor Frank DelCore; Manville Mayor Richard Onderko; and Hillsborough Fire Commissioners Bruce Vatter, John Catrombon Jr. and Patrick Buckley.
“At the sound of an alarm, these extraordinary men and women put their lives on the line for the safety of our community,” Zwicker said. “It is fitting that we spend this evening thanking them for all that they do every day.”
Assemblymen Zwicker and Ciattarelli also presented Joint Senate and Assembly Resolutions to the Fire Departments, as well as to the family of Doris W. Flatley, recognizing her 35 years of service to Hillsborough Volunteer Fire Company #3 on Woods Road. Flately, who was the first female fire officer in Hillsborough, died on March 17th.
Assemblymen Joe Danielsen and Andrew Zwicker will co-host a job fair on April 13 in Somerset.
The event will be held at The Imperia, 1714 Easton Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the free event and network with more than 70 recruiters for opportunities with public and private entities within the Central Jersey region.
"Many of our residents who remain unemployed or underemployed know that their skills and experience can be a real asset in the right workplace," said Danielsen (D-Middlesex/Somerset). "New Jersey has a well-educated and well-trained population looking for opportunities to work and support their families here, and the representatives who will be at the job fair want to give them a chance."
"A job is about more than taking home a paycheck. We have highly knowledgeable and well-qualified men and women who want the opportunity to use their skills to make positive contributions to society," said Zwicker (D-Hunterdon/Mercer/Middlesex/Somerset). "This job fair will be a win-win for individuals looking for jobs and for employers looking for talent."
