South Jersey Democrats, including the entire legislative delegation and all seven county chairs, today announced their endorsement of state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor.
Buono has the proven track record to stand up for middle--‐class families and the most vulnerable, the Democrats said in a statement individually signed by all members.
"Barbara Buono has a distinguished record of service during the past decade in the New Jersey State Senate," the South Jerseyans said. "As Chairwoman of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, she fought to make government more fiscally responsible by cutting $4.5 billion from the state budget, while protecting critically needed resources for health care and our schools. In the most trying of economic times, Barbara Buono has been a strong voice for New Jersey families struggling with their own economic security to help spark job creation and eliminate corporate giveaways, along with special tax breaks for multi--‐millionaires.
"Four more years of Chris Christie would be four more years of protecting multi--‐millionaires, denying women access to critical life--‐saving healthcare services, rising unemployment, no relief for overburdened property taxpayers and the most vulnerable in society being trampled by failed policies. Not only is Barbara Buono uniquely qualified to serve as our next Governor, but also she has the vision and drive desperately needed to get New Jersey working again."
