Did anyone else think up projects that would better improve the lives of Trentonians? and aren't these the same projects the Mayor said Council wouldn't take $5M from the state for? I feel bamboozled.

Rep. Watson Coleman Announces $3.9 Million in Investments in Trenton Infrastructure

Ewing, NJ (July 16, 2021) – Today, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12) announced the passage of two targeted infrastructure projects for the City of Trenton through the House Appropriations Committee. Along with the previously passed Route 29 Tunnel Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) project these initiatives constitute significant infrastructure improvements.



This year, the Appropriations and T&I Committees accepted funding requests from House members for district specific local projects. Rep. Watson Coleman worked with local leaders in the 12th District to identify and submit important improvement projects.

The projects include:

$2.4 million to make necessary safety and ventilation improvements to the Route 29 Tunnel to allow for its use by commercial trucks that are currently forced to reroute through nearby residential neighborhoods.
$500 thousand for public safety and beautification improvements – including lighting and murals – along the heavily utilized pedestrian and bicycle passage between the Trenton Transit Center and downtown Trenton providing important safety improvements to this heavily utilized walkway.
$1 million for flood mitigation and restoration at the historic Trenton Fishing Wharf Park and reestablish riverfront access points. Improvements include green stormwater management systems to mitigate flooding and the rehabilitation of the surrounding public park.


“Providing the 12th District with the resources it needs to flourish is one of my greatest responsibilities as our representative in Congress,” said Rep. Watson Coleman. “These projects, as well as others secured for the district, are an important part of the Biden Administration’s push to Build Back Better. Together with our local leaders we’re setting Trenton and the 12th District on a path to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and forge ahead stronger than ever.”



“Between flood mitigation, public safety improvements and other critical infrastructure projects, we are beyond grateful for the hard work of our congresswoman in securing these funds for our capital city,” said Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes. “These projects will improve the quality of life for countless Trentonians and set Mercer County as a whole on a secure path toward the future.”



"Trenton families deserve to live without the hazards and nuisance of heavy trucks and the air pollution that comes with the truck traffic," said State Senator Shirley Turner (D-Mercer/Hunterdon). "The Route 29 tunnel was heralded as the solution to get heavy trucks off of local roads, but because of its design failure, trucks are restricted from using the tunnel. I am grateful that our Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman has accomplished this important first step to fix the problem and answered our call to get the traffic off of local roads and address an issue of environmental justice that is affecting the quality of life of our residents. I am looking forward to working with our federal delegation to secure the funding."



“The transformative projects that our congresswoman secured will help put the Capital City in a better place,” said Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. “Combined they will divert heavy trucks out of our residential streets, bolster flood protection by restoring a centerpiece of our historic waterfront and make our transit center neighborhood safer and more welcoming for the thousands of commuters who travel in and out of Trenton every day. I have no doubt that this funding will fundamentally improve the quality of life for one of New Jersey’s most diverse and economically challenged communities.”

These projects now head to the House Floor and are expected to pass during the week of July 26th. In addition to the previously passed projects under the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee’s H.R. 3684 INVEST in America Act, these bills head to the Senate where they await further consideration.

Rep. Watson Coleman Expresses Disappointment with Biden Administration Decision to Return To Prison Inmates on Home Confinement

Washington, DC (July 20, 2021) – Today, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12) issued a statement following reporting that the Biden administration has approved the return of thousands of federal convicts who were previously released to home confinement to reduce the spread of Covid-19 after the official state of emergency ends. The decision upholds a last-minute Trump administration memo ordering those released back to prison.
“This is an extremely disappointing decision,” said Watson Coleman. “It directly conflicts with President Biden’s commitments to criminal justice reform and the overall reduction of our prison population. In order to accomplish those goals we have to prioritize alternatives to incarceration and replace it with other strategies wherever possible. The unanticipated reprieve brought on by Covid-19 proved it is possible to safely reduce the prison population. Meanwhile, these inmates have shown to be contributing members of society, improving the wellbeing of their families and communities.
“The United States incarcerates more people than any other country, negatively impacting our moral standing in the world. It is a sign of a deeply unhealthy society to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars a year on incarceration while over 10 million children live in poverty, 1.4 million veterans are at risk of homelessness, and nearly 30 million Americans are underinsured. Today’s decision by the Biden administration is a failure to address the overpopulation crisis in a way that does not require Congress or the Courts. In this respect, this action is both cruel and unnecessary.”

On April 8th and May 27th of this year Congresswoman Watson Coleman sent bipartisan letters to President Biden and Attorney General Garland respectively, calling on them to officially rescind the Trump era memo noting:

…These individuals have not only shown that they can be contributing members of society, they've laid bare the fact that we are imprisoning far too many people in this country. Attorney General Garland should reverse the Justice Department Memo and give thousands of families the peace of mind of knowing their loved ones will not be taken away from them.

The decision of the Biden administration applies to about 4,000 nonviolent inmates.

Canadian policy on Venezuela, Haiti reveals hypocrisy that media ignores. February 19, 2019. Yves Engler. (SHARE).

Unlike Venezuela, Haiti is not divided. Basically, everyone wants the current “president” to go. While the slums have made that clear for months, important segments of the establishment (Reginald Boulos, Youri Latortue, Chamber of Commerce, etc) have turned on Jovenel Moïse. Reliable polling is limited, but it’s possible 9 in 10 Haitians want President Moïse to Resign....

We, I, ask that all pray for traveling mercies for the 250 + African Americans in flight to the Jamestown section of Accra Ghana. My Son, Diallo Sumbry, referred to it as the “Soul Plane” and added that hot sauce was mandatory lol I’m giving a special shoutout to the National NAACP, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated and personally most important to me the Adinkra Group (which my Son is the founder and CEO of). Jamestown2Jamestown, in my opinion, is the most “Mass African Diaspora International Interaction with the Continent of African” since the beginning of our “Maafa”(google it)❤️🖤💚 More than one week will be spent in Ghana networking, establishing long term relationships, touring and most importantly making spiritual connections with our Ancestors and people. Mr. Derrick Johnson, National President of the NAACP, OKOMFO (Priest) Diallo Sumbry and the ABSOLUTE most visionary President at this time on the entire CONTINENT OF AFRICA, Nana Akufo-Addo the WORLD owes you all its gratitude and respect. GOD AND THE ANCESTORS ARE SURELY PLEASED🙏🏿💯🙏🏿🧠
