My dad had a McIntosh stereo system and shelves of records. The pictures and designs of each were so fascinating to me but when he freed them from their colorful covers, carefully sliding them out naked and black, when he lay them down with delicate care and set the needle with a surgeon’s skill my childhood went from silent movie to a soul sourced soundtrack. My home was jazz and gospel; it was funk and R&B, it was the blues and Motown. The sounds of music were continuous from the home to the family car to our church to visits with other relatives. As a growing child though, I would spend more and more time with friends. And it was my friends who introduced me to rock and roll. I can remember when Sang Lee 1st handed me a Walkman, and for the 1st time I covered my ears with cushy foam headphones and heard the music of Queen - I was almost overwhelmed. I remember Chris Magarro, introducing me to The Police, Led Zeplin and so much more. I still remember the day Chris and I biked to Flip Side Records in Closter, NJ next to his dad’s photography store and I bought a Supertramp album. And what I wouldn’t give for the incredible mix tapes that Lee Cho used to make for us, from The Rolling Stones to Cat Stevens, his musical tours took me on journeys of discovery that are among my most precious memories. And now no matter where I am on earth, I can hear a song, from Bon Jovi to Billy Joel and find myself transported back to some of the most meaningful moments of my life. Jimmy Donofrio pictured here (now and in the 80’s) gets full credit for introducing a 13 year old me to the music of Bruce Springsteen. He was more than a fan, he was a devotee and Jimmy’s love of Bruce was infectious. He gave me the gift of The Boss and like heat sears indelible marks into our skin, the light of this gift - (like my parents and brother who gifted me greats like Ray Charles, Alberta Hunter, Lena Horne, Stevie Wonder, not to mention Prince and Luther Vandross) - is a forever part of me. As a very small payback for the decades joy Jimmy gave me through his Bruce introduction, I took him to see Springsteen on Broadway last night. For these two Jersey Boys, It was epic.

This Executive Order is yet another example of President Trump working relentlessly to sabotage the Affordable Care Act. By weakening coverage requirements on some plans, called association health plans, this order will destabilize health care markets and drive up insurance costs, particularly for older Americans and people with pre-existing conditions. Before the consumer protection measures guaranteed by the ACA, association health plans ripped off consumers and left hundreds of thousands of Americans with unpaid medical bills. This Executive Order will also permit insurance companies to move to expand the kind of short-term junk plans that don’t provide critical care for people when they need it most. If he’s really serious about ensuring great, affordable health care for all Americans, the President should work across party lines to improve the Affordable Care Act, not try to sabotage it.

President Trump wants Obamacare to fail and is actively trying to sabotage it -- doing everything from cutting the enrollment period in half to cutting the marketing budget by a whopping 90% so people don't know to sign up.

If you need health insurance, be sure to sign up at HealthCare.gov during the enrollment period starting on November 1 through December 15. Please spread the word—the more people who sign up, the more vibrant and stable our health insurance markets will be.

The Clean Power Plan was a major step forward in our effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change. Repealing the rule will be a major step backwards, and will result in more extreme weather events and greater costs to our economy in the long run. Unfortunately, this announcement is anything but surprising coming from an administration that thinks climate change is a hoax and an EPA chief who has spent his career fighting for big oil companies and railing against the agency he now leads. If we're serious about making sure we sustain this planet for our kids and grandkids, and making sure the jobs of the future are developed on American soil, we have to get serious about fighting climate change. Sticking our heads in the sand and acting like the problem doesn't exist is plainly dangerous and short-sighted.

In 2012 as mayor of Newark, we broke ground on Teachers Village. Today we cut the ribbon on the sixth and final building. This mixed use development has retail, residential, schools and daycare. 65% of the residents are teachers and educators creating a 24/7 learning environment with three different schools and daycare centers. It also has 65,000 SF of retail. It hosts Newark entrepreneurs, was built with significant local labor and even had apprenticeship programs for Newark youth in the construction trades. Today is the fruition of tremendous work. In 2012, when we broke ground on this project, it was part of a great year for development in Newark when I was in my 2nd to last year as mayor. Based on reported data from the 4th quarter of 2012, Newark was the hottest market for construction in the State of New Jersey. More than 30 percent of all commercial and multifamily development in the entire state was happening in Newark. For 2012, New Jersey had projects under construction totaling 3,306,551 square feet. Of that, Newark was responsible for projects totaling 1,168,793 square feet – or 35.3 percent of the state real estate development total. This development now continues under the visionary leadership of Mayor Ras Baraka. Mayor Baraka continues Newark’s incredible progress with his vision and he continues to attain great successes and expand opportunities for local residents. In addition to Mayor Baraka and me, Ron Beit is also in this picture. He is the tremendous developer who first approached me with this project more than a decade ago. His vision, tireless commitment and execution on projects with Mayor Baraka a continue to empower Newark in profound ways.

I have an amazing staff of tremendous public servants who do so much for so many and don’t often get the recognition they deserve. Every week they score wins for NJ from shaping legislation to winning for NJ residents on issues ranging from veteran benefits to social security issues to healthcare reimbursements. Today is one of my staff member’s birthdays. Pictured here is Adam Zipkin. I first met Adam in the 1990’s when I was a lawyer for low income tenants fighting horrible landlords. When I became a city councilman I needed someone to help pick up the legal work I was doing and Adam, a young lawyer, offered to help and then became a powerful force for tenants in Newark. When I was elected Mayor of Newark, Adam - a 4th generation Newaker - wanted to join the administration. He became the chief of staff to our head of economic development, Stefan Pryor, and in my second term, took over as the head of that agency. Under Adam’s leadership Newark saw its biggest economic development boom since the 1960’s, doubled our rate production of affordable housing, became NJ’s biggest urban farming city producing thousands of pounds of local produce, created the State’s first office of X-offender Reentry connecting hundreds and hundreds of men and women to employment opportunities, built our city’s largest parks expansion in over a century and so much more. In fact, in his tenure, though Newark has only 3% of the states population, fully one third of all residential units under construction throughout the state, were in Newark. And we built things the right way, including local labor, apprenticeship programs for our youth and affordable housing for our comminity. When I became a Senator, Adam joined my staff in Washington taking a significant pay cut and he leads my efforts on environmental issues, energy issues, animal welfare issues and more - helping me succeed in advancing significant measures in these areas. We have worked together for about 20 years - from fighting for tenants rights to now fighting for environment justice for NJ and all Americans - Happy Birthday Adam. Sorry I don’t have vegan cupcakes for you my fellow plant based eater.

The Trump administration is working relentlessly to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and undermine its protections for all Americans. Rolling back the requirement that birth control must be provided by insurance companies at no cost to women is the latest shameful example, and represents a pointed attack on the health and rights of women. Family planning decisions are the business of a woman and her doctor, period. Allowing employers to exempt themselves from the ACA’s birth control requirement puts them in the middle of these personal medical decisions and burdens women with additional costs. I will continue to stand against the Trump administration’s wrongheaded efforts and work to protect access to birth control and the Affordable Care Act.

Michael Dourson’s nomination to be head of the EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention is one of the more shocking nominations we’ve seen. The mission of this critically-important EPA role is to protect families and the environment from the potential risks from pesticides and toxic chemicals -- but Mr. Dourson’s career track record shows a clear pattern of working with corporations to advocate for higher chemical levels that are hundreds if not thousands times more dangerous than the standards we see other nations set. It’s like a scene out of some Disney movie where there are corporate villains that seek to do harm to our environment if it wasn’t for the heroic actions of others. Mr. Dourson is the wrong person for the job -- to say the least -- and should recuse himself from this role.

The ways in which Trump is trying to actively sabotage Obamacare grow by the day. But we can fight back and make sure his plan fails and America's health care system succeeds. If you need health insurance, be sure to sign up at HealthCare.gov during the enrollment period starting on November 1 through December 15. And spread the word—the more people who sign up, the more vibrant and stable our health insurance markets will be. Because that's what Trump is trying to sabotage—the stability of our health insurance markets. That's why he cut the enrollment period in half this year to only 45 days so people don't sign up. That's why he's taking down HealthCare.gov for "repairs" on Sundays during enrollment so people don't sign up. That's why he cut the marketing budget by 90 percent so people don't know to sign up. Trump wants Obamacare to fail, and hardworking Americans will suffer as a result. It's a level of villainy that we need to confront with our voices to get out the word: Sign up for health coverage at HealthCare.gov from November 1 to December 15.

The chair of the FCC must be committed to prioritizing the interests of consumers over those of corporations, to creating a level playing field by preserving an open internet and expanding access to information, and to encouraging innovation and competition. Mr. Pai’s record shows no such commitment. His backwards thinking on net neutrality threatens to stifle innovation, his refusal to crack down on the prison payphone industry could enable even worse price gouging for the most vulnerable and their families, and his tolerance for outsized corporate consolidation threatens the competition that our economy needs to thrive and grow.

We have an overall prison population in America that’s grown about 500% since 1980, which is alarming, but the number of women in prison has gone up over 700%, and is increasing at a faster rate than the male prison population. It’s this group of women that I, along with Senators Warren, Kamala Harris, and Dick Durbin, have specifically focused on in our bill introduced earlier this year called The Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act. Our bill includes commonsense reforms, for example, banning solitary confinement and shackling of pregnant women—two barbaric practices that violate our values and principles. In addition, while the vast majority of women are mothers, exorbitant prison phone fees often prevent them from calling their children—so our bill includes free calls and video conferencing in order to help them stay in contact. It’s basic reforms like these that will help these women maintain their basic dignity while doing their time in prison. Please call on your senators to support this urgent bill.

Peter Guarino It really isn't hard to stay out of prison. Most people do. Nor is prison meant to be pleasant.
Michael Cruger There is a reason they are in prison. They made a choice to break the law.
Tony Buero Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time
Charles Bevins That poor criminal!
