Ocean County Democrats this morning declared their support of Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for Governor at their County Committee meeting and Celebration Breakfast in Toms River.

New Jersey, it’s time to fix the New Jersey economy and rebuild," said County Chairman Wyatt Earp. "We have the opportunity to elect the first Democratic woman governor in the history of New Jersey. We here in Ocean County look forward to working hard for her, not just now, but also going forward.
Buono spoke to county committee members and guests.
"Governor Christie has been a disaster for New Jersey, plain and simple," Buono said. "Under his watch, New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation and the fourth worst unemployment rate. That’s failure."

"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- The Bergen Record
