STATEMENT FROM ASSEMBLYMAN JOHN S. WISNIEWSKI ON GOVERNOR CHRISTIE’S SAYREVILLE TOWN MEETING

(19th LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT) – Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement today concerning Gov. Christie’s town meeting in Sayreville.

“I want to welcome Governor Christie to my hometown of Sayreville for his town meeting today. It is always an honor to host a Governor, regardless of party.

“While he’s here, I hope the Governor explains to the hard working men and women of Sayreville why, since coming to office, he chose to reduce their property tax rebates, reduce municipal aid to Sayreville by $2,290,033, and reduce education aid to Sayreville public schools by $2,252,464, while cutting taxes for New Jersey’s millionaires.

“Sayreville residents could have spent that money on pressing needs, and given our economy a boost. Meanwhile, millionaires simply stash the cash in their bank accounts. I believe it reflects misplaced priorities as, I suspect, do most residents of Sayreville.”
