Foreclosure hearing by Sen. Menendez at BUF this morning

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez will hold a hearing in Plainfield this morning.
Plainfield's BUF Center will be the venue for a hearing on saving neighborhoods from foreclosures being conducted by US Sen. Robert Menendez later this morning.

  • Dr. DeForest (Buster) Soaries, CEO, Central Jersey CDC
