(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore Jerry Green (D-Union/Middlesex/Somerset) released the following statement on Monday:
“Let’s get this straight, folks – this governor is no hero to middle-class New Jerseyans and the poor.
“He can pose all he wants in front of the TV cameras, but the mean-spirited vetoes of property tax relief for the middle-class and senior citizens and income tax relief for the working poor are what really matter. Not to mention his opposition to affordable housing, women’s health care and legal services for working class New Jerseyans.
“Facts are facts, and the fact is this governor has failed repeatedly when it comes to providing tax relief for the middle-class.”
