I agree with Chris Christie’s position in 2009 when he refused to hold a special election because “no responsible governor at this point would call for a special election that cost ten million dollars.” And I am disappointed in the appellate court’s decision yesterday to reject our challenge to the Governor’s timing of the special election to fill the late Senator Frank Lautenberg’s seat.
Governor Christie has a responsibility to the taxpayers of this state. One need only look at the devastating effects of his budget cuts over the past four years to see where and how $12 million could help New Jersey’s taxpayers.
Remember this when you go to the polls first in August… and then in October… and again in November. Think about this when you read about the governor’s calls for ‘shared sacrifice’ and know that our property tax bills are too high, rebate checks too low, houses are going into foreclosure, unemployment is at a record high, police forces are being reduced, fire houses are closing, school budgets are slashed, and some elected officials are unresponsive.
The list is endless, the abuse of taxpayer dollars blatant, and the ambition of the governor’s reelection naked.
Today, let’s resolve to “remember in November.”
