Assemblyman Scott Rumana arrived in time to greet the members in attendance of the Taiwanese Association of America, New Jersey Chapter. He gave a vigorous speech addressing the economy and its affects, but first greeting them in their language. Dr. Huey-Jen Lee acted as the Master of Ceremonies and was able to adhere to the schedule of events fairly closely. While most of the speeches were in Taiwanese, the speakers also used the English language for the benefit of those who's non-language skills were predominant. Mayor Rich LaBarbiera apologized for not being able to attend and sent an emissary to address the people on his behalf. Both Rumana and LaBarbiera stated that they were open to the people who had problems.
