Thigpen’s due diligence

Essex County Democratic Committee Chairman Phil Thigpen has called a meeting of the party faithful, scheduled for tomorrow night.

At the meeting, the party municipal chairs are expected to formally get behind state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor.

"This meeting is entirely off the record. Until somebody leaks it."
