TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg on Wednesday challenged the Christie Administration’s defense of a contract with AshBritt to perform storm-recovery work in New Jersey with the following statement and questions:
“The belated claim by the Christie Administration that their deal with AshBritt to perform emergency recovery work after Hurricane Sandy isn’t really a no-bid contract when it clearly wasn’t bid in New Jersey is hardly the straightforward explanation from a governor who claims to be a straight talker. Further, the administration’s defensive reaction to questions about the selection process and ultimate cost of AshBritt’s work that has been characterized as far more expensive than others only fuels the growing concerns about an arrangement that may profit AshBritt at the state’s expense.
