(TRENTON) - Assembly Democrat Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) released the following statement on Wednesday in response to the governor's State of the State address:
"The governor has been preoccupied with Sandy and rightfully so, but this does not excuse his silence on other pressing matters. Our unemployment rate is stubbornly high, but we have yet to hear how the governor plans to reverse this. Violence continues to mar our urban cities and our children in urban districts are being taught in dilapidated school buildings under the governor's watch with no solution in sight. The governor's office has been equally quiet on the minimum wage increase, and the ongoing affordable housing and foreclosure crisis which left many residents homeless well before Sandy. These issues have repercussions which will only worsen if not addressed. Residents struggling to find work or a suitable place to live or who are afraid to let their children out to play because of ongoing violence in their communities deserve a plan from the governor."
