Buono Formally Launches Campaign For Governor


Today, Democratic State Senator Barbara Buono formally kicked off her campaign for Governor at New Brunswick High School.
At the standing room only event, Senator Buono was joined by fellow elected officials, community leaders and citizens from across New Jersey to begin a 21 county grassroots effort to bring new leadership to Trenton.

Senator Buono explained that her progressive values were shaped by her working class roots. While working her way through Montclair State and Rutgers Law School, Senator Buono learned that “if I worked hard, nothing could get in my way”.
She went on to describe her track record of working for the middle class, fighting corruption, and protecting New Jerseyans from massive tax hikes. Senator Buono outlined how her governing style will differ from Governor Christie. “We’re here today to put an end to a philosophy as tired as it is disproven – the notion that our economic problems can all be solved if only we ask the middle class and the working poor to sacrifice more so that the wealthy can become even richer,” said Buono.
She further explained that while Governor Christie has failed to bring down unemployment, tuition costs or property taxes, she would focus on creating new jobs, strengthening our schools, and reducing the property tax burden for hardworking New Jersey families.
“It’s time for leadership that puts New Jersey first, that sees our state as more than just a steppingstone and believes every child in every neighborhood deserves a state where they have the opportunity to defy expectations,” said Buono.
Congressman Frank Pallone emceed the event, which included remarks from State Senator Bob Smith, Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, and Reverend Ron Owens. According to a New Brunswick Public School official, more than 550 people attended the event.
