During the first Session day held since the Legislature recessed for the summer, Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove was sworn in today filling a vacancy seat in the 9th District Assembly for the remainder of the current Session. In January, Gove will be sworn in to serve her first full term following her victory on Election Day.

Assemblywoman Gove made the following remarks:

“First and foremost, I would like to thank the good people of the 9th Legislative District for their confidence and support. As a member of the State Assembly, I will not forget my roots in public service as a small town mayor and commissioner. I fully recognize that there is a lot to be done – and undone – in Trenton to begin the very difficult process of returning our state to economic prosperity.

“While serving in local government, I learned very quickly the need for working in a bipartisan manner, approaching problems from a practical rather than political standpoint. Tasked with closing an estimated $10 billion budget shortfall looming for the next fiscal year, the Legislature, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office, must make the appropriate spending reductions needed to balance the budget and place our state on sound fiscal footing. Moving forward, it is critical to recognize that restructuring our state’s government bureaucracy offers the promise of significant savings while, at the same time, making New Jersey more attractive to businesses that were scared off in the past by over-regulation and over-taxation.

“Sharing a consolidated legislative office with Senator Connors and Assemblyman Rumpf will offer me the unique opportunity to continue the 9th District Delegation’s commitment to constituent services. This is an issue close to my heart. After taking care of my mother for a number of years, I understand the critical importance of raising awareness of services, including those designated for seniors, so those qualifying individuals can get the assistance they need when they need it.

“In all, I know serving in the Legislature over the next few years will be challenging given the mounting problems our state is faced with. Regardless, I intend to approach my duties with a positive outlook knowing that there are corrective measures which can be taken by the state to improve the lives of residents.”
