For a man who did not choose to be Governor of the state of NJ, Richard Codey certainly has the mantle thrust upon him often enough! You’ll remember a couple of years back when our then Governor Jim McGreevy decided to leave office, Dick Codey took over, as we have no lieutenant Governor in our state. Yesterday, following a serious car crash, our current governor Jon Corzine was air lifted to Cooper Hospital, and due to the seriousness of his condition, a stunt double needed to fill in. Enter Dick Codey, the former new acting governor.
Maybe we should get a better system in place?
