McGUCKIN: GOVERNOR HAS PRIORITIES RIGHT
Assemblyman Greg McGuckin, who represents Ocean County which bore the brunt of Super Storm Sandy, issued the statement below today following Governor Christie’s State of the State address to a Joint Session of the Legislature:
“Sandy is long gone, but the daunting task of rebuilding remains. Lives have been lost while others have been drastically altered, local economies have been decimated and our way of life at the Jersey Shore has been forever changed. The governor clearly understands that our state’s economic health is directly tied to our rebuilding efforts. Once again, his priorities put New Jerseyans first – whether they are struggling to recover from Sandy or are taxpayers struggling to make ends meet.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
