Quijano Statement on Christie Campaigning in New Hampshire as Blizzard & Coastal Flooding Looms

“No one should put political ambition above public safety.”

(TRENTON) – New Jersey Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Chairwoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) released the following statement Friday as Gov. Christie campaigned in New Hampshire as New Jersey faced a potential blizzard and coastal flooding:

“If Gov. Christie doesn’t return to New Jersey to oversee the state’s response to a blizzard and coastal flooding, then what’s the point of him even being governor anymore?
“Staying in New Hampshire would mean Gov. Christie has quit on the people of New Jersey. There is no such thing as phoning it in when you’re a governor and your state is being hit by a blizzard and coastal flooding.
“No one should put political ambition above public safety.”
“Hopefully Gov. Christie ultimately does the right thing.”
