Wildes says, "As a mayor of a small city myself, I know first-hand
that fighting terrorism knows no partisanship. Presidents, Governors and
Legislators must resist the temptation to politicize this. And from the
perspective of an attorney who has handled many high profile terrorism
cases, I understand the importance of being prepared to meet the challenge
of terrorism. We have not been battling terrorism for decades like the
state of Israel. We must prepare as our State faces unknown challenges.
I hope residents of the New Jersey/New York metro area will join us to
