DeCROCE STATEMENT ON STATE OF STATE ADDRESS
Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce, R-Morris, Essex and Passaic, issued the following statement regarding Gov. Christie’s State of the State Address which he delivered to a Joint Session of the Legislature today:
“New Jersey is regrouping from a natural disaster the likes of which we have never before experienced. In the immediate aftermath, everyone acted with a common purpose and worked toward the common goal of getting our state back and running. However, as the governor pointed out, our job of helping people recover by rebuilding their communities is just beginning. As a society of compassion, we need to maintain our focus on finishing the job.
“We must use our collective voices and keep up the pressure on the federal government to deliver on the funding our state desperately needs. The governor is right on point when he says we can accomplish much more for the people of this state by working together instead of partisan bickering.”
“Governor Christie has successfully addressed significant issues during his first three years in office, and the people of New Jersey believe he is more than capable of leading our state as we rebuild lives and restore hope.”

"Enlisting Fox is another reminder of how much Christie has truly relied on insiders, including Democrats, to bolster his agenda or bail him out of trouble. Not long after arriving in Trenton in 2009, Christie began collaborating with George Norcross, the deeply entrenched Democratic Party kingmaker, to help him cut deals with a Democratic-controlled Legislature.
When his close ally David Samson resigned as chairman of the Port Authority over conflict-of-interest questions earlier this year, Christie replaced Samson with John Degnan, a pillar of the Democratic Party establishment. And now, confronted with a crisis, Christie has turned to “Jamie,’’ as Fox has been known throughout political circles since he began as an aide in the Democratic Senate in the 1980s." - columnist Charles Stile
