We were there to talk about the New Jersey governor's race and the fast-approaching election on Nov. 7. But the residents of Hillside Terrace had little to say about Republican Kim Guadagno and Democrat Phil Murphy."Everyone is talking about Trump, I don't think anyone is talking about the governor's race," said Phyllis Salowe-Kaye, our party hostess and the executive director of the group Citizen Action. She pointed to a recent poll that found only 43 percent of voters said they knew enough about Murphy to form an opinion of him; it's even lower for Guadagno. Despite the tensions over Trump, everyone at the block party could agree on one thing: they would cast a ballot in November. It was even suggested they launch a voter registration project in the neighborhood.
