Gov. Chris Christie’s re-election campaign responded Friday to news of a Republican mayor’s endorsement of the governor’s likely Democratic challenger.
The campaign said Spotswood Mayor Nick Poliseno’s decision to back Sen. Barbara Buono for governor is a surprise in that “the mayor would back a candidate who has stood directly in the way of common sense reforms to lower the cost of government,” said campaign spokesman Kevin Roberts.
Buono’s campaign issued a statement earlier in the day saying Poliseno was backing her bid for governor in part because of the rising cost of property taxes under Christie’s tenure.
“She can grandstand all she wants, but Barbara Buono represents nothing but failed Corzine-era polices and higher taxes on New Jereyans,” Roberts said.
“Over and over she has stood in the way of toolkit reforms that would deliver relief to property taxpayers, including voting against historic, bipartisan pension and health benefit reforms that are saving Spotswood taxpayers $300,000 this year alone,” he said. “Senator Buono even opposes the Governor’s bipartisan plan to deliver immediate middle-class property tax relief.”
