“The Two Joes” Coming To You, Live On Baristanet


In barely seven weeks, voters will decide if Essex County Executive, Joseph DiVincenzo, will continue in office for his second term, or if Cedar Grove Councilman Joseph Chiusolo, is a better guy for the job. Campaigning activities for the two Joes have been pretty quiet so far, but get ready to hear from each candidate directly. Baristanet has invited Joey D and political opponent Chiusolo (can we call him “Joey C”?) to join us for a live chat to field questions and comments from our readers.
Mark your calendars for both online chats:
Friday, October 6, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Joseph DiVincenzo
Thursday, October 12, 11:30 – 12:30 p.m. Joseph Chiusolo

Hopefully our online chat will get the party started. Instructions for logging in to the chat room will follow…

    The bnac forum was to include the district 28 assembly race but scheduling conflicts with candidates cancelled that debate.
