    One thing is clear, a Democrat must win this year’s Gubernatorial election. But to me, the best platform would be one that combines some of the issues that each of them is bringing up. For example, Ray Lesniak talks about a public review board not only for Education, but also for NJ Transit and the Port Authority, I think that’s a great idea. John Wisniewski talks about single payer health care yet criticizes Phil Murphy over a State Bank by saying the Government can’t be trusted with that. Yet a single payer health plan in New jersey would double the size of the government in one fell swoop. I think both ideas are good ones, but I think both of them would require Ray Lesniak’s Public oversight and accountability. None of their proposals are worth the paper they are printed on without accountability and without political reform. You can have the best system in the world, but if political bosses are going to dictate what happens and reward their crony’s and continue the corrupt pay to play, wheeling and quid pro quo transactional governing, non of it will work. So what I want to hear is how they are going to break up this political boss system, provide accountability and give power and control back to the people.
