New Jersey Senator Gerald Cardinale (R-Bergen, Passaic) is renewing his call for Republican and Democratic Congressional leaders to break bread together to break the federal impasse. On Friday, Senator Cardinale sent pizzas in honor of National Pizza Month to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office to prompt leaders from both political parties to come together over something they have in common.

“Unfortunately, an opportunity to start negotiations on the right foot was squandered on Friday afternoon when no one answered in Harry Reid’s office to let in the pizza delivery man,” Cardinale noted.

Senator Cardinale then had the 15 pies — five cheese, five pepperoni and five vegetarian — delivered to the interfaith, community-based organization SOME (So Others Might Eat), to feed many of D.C.’s homeless and poor people.

“Today, I’m writing Sen. Reid to let him know my offer to provide pizza remains on the table to urge leaders in Congress to come together over this historic and unanimously beloved food,” Cardinale said. “All options should be on the table to initiate reasonable negotiations in Washington.”

“We keep reading reports and hearing from constituents about how this federal shut down is hurting more and more in its second week,” Cardinale concluded. “Our federal representatives should be doing everything together, around the clock to reach a compromise and get government working for the people again.”
