TRENTON – Assemblyman John F. McKeon called the governor’s earlier criticism of him for not signing a dune easement “ignorant.”
McKeon, criticized Tuesday by Gov. Chris Christie for not signing an easement, responded that the easement will be signed, but first he needs information about exactly where dune lines will be drawn.
McKeon issued this response to the governor’s criticism:
“I’m 100 percent committed to an integrated dune system.
“After months of back and forth, the state and township still have not been able to tell us, with precision, where the dune lines will be drawn.
“There’s no question that my family will be signing off on the easement, but like many other families, all we are seeking is a basic ‘metes and bounds’ description, which tells us where the dune will be located on the property, rather than blindly signing off on an easement in perpetuity.
“To call my family, and by extension countless others, ‘greedy’ is completely ignorant on the Governor’s part.
“Now is not the time for flippant name calling or politics. We should be working together to help make this already difficult process easier for families that were impacted by Sandy.”
Christie, at a press conference in Long Branch, had said McKeon was putting his own financial interests ahead of constituents’ needs.

"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.
