RIBLE STATEMENT ON STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS

Assembly Republican Conference Leader David Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean, issued the following statement regarding Gov. Christie’s State of the State Address which he delivered to a Joint Session of the Legislature today:

“The most important issue facing our state is how to rebuild the lives of so many people affected by Hurricane Sandy. The recovery effort has a direct impact on jobs and our economy. Governor Christie’s pledge to keep this issue at the forefront of his agenda is reassuring to those whose spirits were bruised, but not broken.

“The residents of New Jersey are resilient and determined to rebound from this disaster. The governor has earned the trust of the people in this state as he has set an example of how to lead. The public is depending on its elected officials to assist them in overcoming the challenges they face. This is a critical time when we are called to unite and not divide.”

“One of government’s primary purposes is to protect people from threats. There is no better example than the threat posed by Hurricane Sandy. The road to recovery may be long, but not impossible. It starts with working together, not rooting for failure.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile
