New Jersey Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver released the following statement in response to the gubernatorial debate held tonight at William Paterson University:
“This evening, Senator Buono again showed the people of New Jersey that she is the leader best suited to move our state forward. While Governor Christie made it clear that he will continue to choose the wealthiest and large corporations – just as he has over the last four years – throughout the debate Senator Buono was steadfast in her conviction that restoring our economy will require putting middle-and working-class families first.
“On everything from the economy and education to women’s health and gun violence, Senator Buono unquestionably represents the values of the people of New Jersey best. In fact, she is the only candidate fighting for all of our residents rather than a privileged few.
“While Governor Christie seemed intent on discussing the past and ignoring a record of failure that has hurt New Jersey’s families, Senator Buono was commanding in her focus on our future. That’s why she won tonight’s debate, and that’s why I’m looking forward to her being our next governor.”
