Meet the Leaders host Jeff Henig welcomes freshman Assemblywoman Joann Downey from Monmouth County’s 11th legislative district for a discussion on her decision to pursue a career in law rather than becoming a New Jersey State Trooper. Assemblywoman Downey reacts to Governor Christie’s proposed state budget and talks of her disappointment in the amount of funding shore communities in New Jersey have received in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
