Sokolich said that he would just like to look after the town of Fort Lee and stay out of the fray while the controversy surrounding the governor plays out.

"I'm a Jersey guy. I don't appreciate the political jokes. I signed up to build little league fields and lower taxes. I don't want to be the brunt of a joke, so again, I taking him at his word," he said.
