(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan (D-Union) released the following statement Wednesday on Gov. Chris Christie’s personal attack against Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer):
“Does this governor have any sense of decency?
“Perhaps this tragedy never would have happened had the Christie administration properly supervised this parolee. Then again, the governor is never one to accept blame for anything.
“Is it coincidence that the governor’s attacks on Assemblywoman Watson Coleman follow Tuesday’s school construction in which her questions embarrassed the administration? I doubt it.
“Assemblywoman Watson Coleman has worked for years to improve the lives of New Jerseyans. She has helped countless New Jerseyans with policies geared toward helping the working class and those most vulnerable. It’s time for the governor to show this woman of strength and honor some respect, if he’s capable of such sentiment.”
