Christie & Adubato leaning hard on Senators to reject NJN veto resolution

We are hearing from multiple sources that Gov. Chris Chris Christie and North Jersey Democratic political boss Steve Adubato were making calls all day yesterday to pressure Senators to vote against the NJN veto resolution. Is that OK with you?

Concurrent Resolutions to stop the deal – Early this week Sen. Loretta Weinberg and Asm. Patrick Diegnan introduced concurrent resolutions in each of their houses disapproving the handover contract negotiated by NJ Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff. The Assembly voted Thursday night 45-30 on the Diegnan resolution to block the NJN handover.

Hot seat – On the same day, Sidamon-Eristoff was on the hot seat for more than 2 hours in the Senate Budget Committee. And it was clear from the Senators’ persistent questions – and his often minimal answers –  that they weren’t getting anywhere with him.

Senate – Loretta Weinberg is the sponsor of the Senate resolution, which is expected to come up for a vote Monday.

Payback? Tracking what appears to be a flawed, and maybe suspicious, bidding and selection process in the Christie plan, leads to questions concerning what Adubato’s son, Steve Adubato, Jr., would potentially gain from the deal. And if it’s political payback going on, there’s plenty to be concerned about.

    Some of Christie’s pro-Christiecrat doings:

    Adubato’s charter schools encroach faster and further into Newark, with hedge fund managers wanting in on the action. Adubato wants control of NJN bad, as stated here by Rosi (love that name).

    Sweeney pulls legislative levers for Norcross, and helps his real boss get pension and benefits reform to their benefit. Norcross enters the NJ education business with “Transformation Schools” plan, “a small pilot program that would permit private companies to take over the management of select poorly performing public schools”.  

    Christie gives Elizabeth NJ Board of Ed their school budget although it was voted down by the taxpayers. No mention of charter schools in Elizabeth, but it was chosen as one of the 10 sites for a new ‘Academic Magnet High School’. Elizabeth also receives highest percentage of court ordered Abbott funds at $82 million:

    Meanwhile Republicans are heavily targeting Codey (2nd to last paragraph)… wonder why???:

    OUT with Sweeney a.k.a Norcross, and Oliver a.k.a Joe D. a.k.a Adubato, and IN with Codey/Weinberg/Buono/Cryan a.k.a. REAL Democrats. Unions, public workers, and Dems can put the pressure on for the real Dems to control the legislature, and turn their backs on the back-stabbing political bosses and their puppets.

    but it looks like my reps in Camden County don’t listen to a word we say.

    I’m sick over this.

    The crooked boss wants his smooth, slimy son to get his kick.

    They can target Codey all they want, but they nominated a wacko who won’t win.  Gordon is a different story.
