(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) released the following statement on Gov. Christie’s Tuesday visit to New Jersey:
“It’s always nice to see Gov. Christie visit New Jersey every once in a while, even if it’s just to remind New Jersey’s middle-class of scary ghost stories such as the soaring property taxes, skyrocketing unemployment and the sputtering economy he’s overseen.
“If Gov. Christie was interested in the middle-class, he would have signed the Democratic bill to triple their property tax relief credits.
“If Gov. Christie was interested in the middle-class, he wouldn’t have recklessly rejected many of the Democratic job creations bills.
“If Gov. Christie was interested in the middle-class, he would spend time rebuilding an economy that ranks 47th in the nation in economic growth, rather than gallivanting around the nation on behalf of anti-working class Republicans.
“Gov. Christie words – no matter how loudly spoken – cannot make up for his weak efforts on behalf of New Jersey’s middle-class suffering under his property tax hikes and unemployment.”
