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.
On his first visit to South Carolina as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, Gov. Chris Christie stayed in "moderate Charleston, in contrast to other potential GOP candidates who made early visits to conservatives elsewhere," according to an ABC News report.Read More >
