On a day when we remember the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, our guest on Record Talk Radio was Norma Manigan, a former senior public relations manager for the Port Authority.
Manigan, now a part-time assistant to Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan, talked about her experiences that day and of the importance or remembering the victims of those attacks.
At the Port Authority, Manigan worked on a program that enabled governments and uniformed police and fire agencies to use shards of the World Trade Center as part of their memorials to that day.
We also discussed the photo exhibit currently on display in the lobby of the County Administration Building in Hackensack, that shows the various memorials that were created in Bergen County's 70 towns. The exhibit will remain on display for the rest of September.
Join us Friday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. when the next edition of Record Talk Radio will focus on the Bergen County election campaign and Rutgers' entry into the Big 10.
This 30-minute will kick off a new feature, "Campaign 2014" a conversation with a Democratic and Republican commentator on the news of the week in the race for County Executive and Freeholder.

Born and raised in Mesquite, Nevada, Cresent Hardy has always worked hard to not only take care of himself and his family, but to give back to his community. His commitment to public service is clear – he has served as the Mesquite Public Works Director, a member of the Virgin Valley Water District, as a member of the Mesquite City Council, and has served two terms in the Nevada State Assembly. Cresent Hardy brings over two decades of distinguished public service experience to his campaign for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District.
A fifth-generation resident of Mesquite – his grandfather was the first baby born in the town – Hardy knows the importance of building a strong, safe community for families. He and his wife, Peri, have been married for 32 years, and are the parents of four wonderful children.
Cresent is proud to have helped in the Golf Fore Kids fundraising program, which has raised over $165,000 for needy children in Southern Nevada in only four short years. Hardy is also active in his church and community organizations such as Junior Livestock, 4H, and veterans groups.
Growing up in a farming community taught Cresent the value of hard work at a young age. Working with cattle, horses, and pigs on his father’s ranch as a young man instilled a valuable work ethic that he applies each and every day as a businessman. As a small business owner, Cresent Hardy knows what it takes to create jobs, make payroll, and meet a budget…something we desperately need more of in Washington!
The value of a hard day’s work and being self-reliant helped him to succeed in his career as a licensed contractor and small business owner.
