Bret Schundler - NJ education commissioner in Hoboken

New Jersey Education Commissioner Bret Schundler pictured at the Hoboken Republican Club Lincoln Dinner last night.

The event was the fifth consecutive for the Hoboken group.

Although Commissioner Schundler was not appearing in his official capacity, he spoke at length about education and his remarks were detailed on New Jersey's fiscal challenges along with the educational objectives.

We'll have more later on the speech.

Lincoln Dinner with Bret Schundler in pictures

Can't have an annual Lincoln Dinner with the education commissioner in attendance without the local education folks in attendance and they showed up.  The dinner a sold out affair is the signature event for the Hoboken Republican Club, now in its fifth consecutive year.

The Real Results team for the Board of Education was in attendance.

The Kids First team was also in attendance with a table in the front too.

Nathan Brinkman co-host of the event with Peter Morgan, pictured with Frank Raia.

The ever elegant Sean Connelly and a friend, the Corporation Counsel for the former mayor Bret Schundler of Jersey City made some news.  He announced over dinner to Da Horsey he intends to run for mayor in Jersey City.  Ever the gentleman, he kept offering his seat to late arrivals.  We finally convinced him they would find enough seats.

More on the speech to come.
