CAMDEN – Gov. Chris Christie today brushed aside concerns over campaign ads by the teachers’ union.
The N.J. Education Association started airing ads that criticize the governor as he seeks re-election.
“It’s their money, it’s their business,’’ he said in dismissing concerns over one of his longtime antagonists.
In other issues during a press conference here in which Christie introduced the new superintendent of schools, he said he had not been aware that N.J. Transit – prior to Superstorm Sandy – had a hurricane plan that it did not follow.
If lawmakers want to hold hearings over the situation, then the head of N.J. Transit will appear and answer their questions, Christie said.
Regarding post-Sandy aid troubles, Christie said some towns have caused their own problems by not submitting paperwork correctly.
He said the state works continually with Marc Ferzan’s Sandy office to assist the rebuilding process. “There were some school districts that weren’t going to apply for loans with FEMA,’’ Christie said. “We’ve taken every aggressive step we can,’’ but some fault lies with FEMA, and some with individual municipalities.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
