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.”
