Called an “unusually strong chairman.” He’s overseeing infrastructure updates — including preparing the port to handle the larger ships, which will be a game-changer in the coming years. “I think the Department of Community Affairs and the Port Authority are the top public entities that will have the most impact in New Jersey real estate in the upcoming years,” one insider said. And count on Samson being involved as long as Christie is running the show. “He’s the governor’s No. 1 attorney friend,” the insider said. “It’s hard to get much more powerful.”
