NJ.com reports on Essex County Executive Joe Divincenzo bragging about doing his job with our tax money:

Maplewood/Millburn – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. announced on Monday, Aug. 19, that Wyoming Ave. in Maplewood, Millburn and South Orange has been repaved. The roadway improvements were done after township officials shared concerns about the road with the County and are part of the DiVincenzo Administration’s ongoing initiative to modernize infrastructure to maximize safety for pedestrians and motorists, and to enhance the quality of life in Essex County.
“Essex residents and motorists rely on our intricate network of roads to get to work, go to school and carry out their daily errands. Our commitment is to make sure our infrastructure is in the most modern condition so that our daily lives are not interrupted,” DiVincenzo said. “We have a great relationship with our partners in municipal government. This is an example of how a need is identified on the local level and the county responds to correct it,” he added.
“I’m always pleased when a community approaches the county with a concern and we are able to respond quickly. Maintaining the infrastructure is an important responsibility and repaving Wyoming Avenue makes a tremendous difference,” Freeholder Vice President Patricia Sebold said.
“Once again, we thank the county for taking care of the infrastructure it has in Millburn – from its bridges, to intersections, to dams. These are excellent projects and contribute to our residents’ quality of life,” Millburn Mayor Sandra Haimoff said.
“Wyoming Avenue is a busy thoroughfare. Not only is there a lot of car traffic, but our residents get a lot of use from the road for biking, walking, pushing strollers. It’s a really great improvement that was done here,” Maplewood Mayor Victor DeLuca said.
The 2.2-mile length of Wyoming Avenue from South Orange Avenue to Glen Avenue was repaved. The project cost about $650,000 and was coordinated by the Essex County Department of Public Works. Tilcon repaving company from Wharton performed the milling and paving, and Denville Line Painting from Parsippany painted the roadway striping. The project was funded through the Essex County Capital Budget.
