Governor Richard J. Codey

Not many people express how proud they are of their hometowns quite like Governor Richard J. Codey.  The Orange, New Jersey native and the Garden State’s 53rd governor sat down with HipNJ’s  Lisa Marie Latino to give her a “slice” of his home town.

In his 30 plus years in the legislature, Governor Codey has become one of New Jersey’s fiercest mental health advocates, spearheading countless improvements that have led to better mental health care throughout the state of New Jersey.  He also passed the the Smoke-free Air Act, which banned the use of tobacco products indoors.  

When he’s not busy fighting for the rights of New Jersey’s citizens, he’s running his family’s funeral home, with locations in Caldwell and Boonton.  You can also find him coaching sports and relaxing with his beloved family.

Governor Codey entertained us at his favorite Orange hangout, Star Tavern “World Famous” Pizzeria.   Find out now how growin’ up Jersey helped shape him into the man he is today.

Burnett Plastic Surgery

Let’s be real for a minute and admit we have all considered plastic surgery at some point.  If your prime decision factor comes down to finding the right surgeon, look no further than Burnett Plastic Surgery of Westfield, New Jersey.

HipNJ’s Melisa LaTour sat down with Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos G. Burnett, to find out why he is considered one of the best in the country.

Dr. Burnett has experience with all skin, ethnic and body types, male and female. He and his faithful clients consider him to be a perfectionist, a quality anyone would want their plastic surgeon to have.  Not only is his work flawless, but he really takes the time out to get to know each patient as an individual.

Dr. Burnett demonstrates his commitment to perfection starting with each patient’s first meeting: “I want to find out what’s bothering each patient. I need to make sure I understand each new patient well enough to give her what she really wants”.

Burnett Plastic Surgery has adapted to new technology that is safer and more effective in skin tightening, making the decision to get that tummy tuck you have always wanted a lot sooner. When you have one of the nations best plastic surgeons in your own back yard, what could possibly be stopping you from getting the work done you have always wanted?
