Port Authority Protests Really Aimed At Christie?

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) - New Jersey’s Working Family Alliance was out protesting in front of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey offices in Jersey City yesterday. The protest was in regards to Port Authority Chairman David Samson’s allegedly directing business to his private law firm Wolf and Samson.

The group has filed an ethics complaint against David Samson and they want their voices to be heard.

The organization has also been creating a lot of noise at Governor Christie’s town hall meetings, but they say their agenda is not to stop Christie from running for resident in 2016, but rather to help New Jersey families and make sure that tax payer dollars are spent appropriately.

Television and radio commentator Dee Dee Benkie chimed in to discuss what kind of impact these protests have.

“I don’t think it has any impact, I mean if you don’t even have a couple dozen, forget it there’s more people in this room, that doesn’t even make for a protest, that’s a joke. Plus if someone said they don’t even know who the guy is, this happens all the time nationally when people go in and they hire people and they give them goodies or whatever it is to go and protest. So they’re just sort of hired guns, they’re protestors, who cares this is nothing,” she exclaimed.

While the protest doesn’t seem to mean much to Benkie, she does think that it all goes back to the governor.

“I just think all these complaints and all these people protesting and they can’t find out who’s paying for it, I think it’s an onslaught of people just attacking Christie so I think eventually they will try and attack Christie with this which is ridiculous,” she said.

    There are countless treasures to be found along the Long Beach Island shoreline. Sand dollars, conch shells and even ten thousand year-old arrowheads! That's exactly what happened last week to 10-year old Noah Cordle who was walking along the beach and stumbled over the ancient artifact. “I thought it was a mussel shell, but it looked kind of too pointy to be a mussel shell and so I picked it up and it was an arrowhead,” Cordle explained.
