by Bayonne Now

Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that he met this week with Assemblyman Louis D. Greenwald, chair of the NJ General Assembly Budget Committee.

Smith said, 'I sought this meeting with Assemblyman Lou Greenwald to make him aware of Bayonne's needs during this time of economic difficulty. As Mayor, I know that Bayonne depends on a positive relationship with state officials to get the policies and assistance we need to move forward.'

Smith continued, 'Lou Greenwald has had a distinguished record as Budget Chairman and as a sponsor of important legislation. I look forward to continuing to work with him on issues of concern to Bayonne.'

The mayor added, 'Assemblyman Greenwald will be helpful in the coming days as Bayonne seeks partners to assist with the redevelopment of the Peninsula and other important projects.'

Smith said that Greenwald would be returning to Bayonne in the near future.
Greenwald has sponsored legislation to lower auto insurance rates, and a bill to extend eligibility requirements for veterans to receive the Distinguished Service Medal.

Greenwald was the author of legislation creating the Amber Alert system, through which reports of abducted children are broadcast quickly on television and radio. He sponsored a law revising the state's charity care formula to provide greater reimbursement to hospitals. Greenwald also led the effort to establish a nationally designated cancer center in southern New Jersey.
Greenwald is serving his seventh term in the Assembly."
