At 6 P.M., the association will host a cocktail hour followed by dinner at “The View” Restaurant in Lincoln Park. During the dinner former Governor McGreevey, a Jersey City native, will address the attendees. Before being elected governor, he was an assemblyman, state senator and mayor of Woodbridge, New Jersey.
