DiVincenzo honors Christie’s chief counsel with Irishman of the Year Award

The unabashed love continues between powerful Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo and Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

Days after not lending his presence to an Essex County Democratic Party rally in honor of state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), DiVincenzo today honored Charles McKenna as the county’s 2013 Irishman of the Year.

McKenna is chief counsel to Christie.

Buono is the Democrats’ presumptive gubernatorial challenger. 

"The possible 2017 contender for the governorship shouldered Thanksgiving birds alongside Stack, who took the insanity of his annual turkey drive to another level this year, launching a 20,000-bird door-to-door offensive."
