Dem Chair Currie: Gov.'S Priorities Are Seriously Out Of Whack

Christie Cancels Town Hall But Confirms New York City Fundraiser For National GOP

Today, New Jersey Democrats are questioning Governor Chris Christie's priorities after he postponed – for the second time – his first town hall meeting with New Jersey residents in months and confirmed plans to leave the state (after a long weekend in Puerto Rico) to attend a big money fundraiser for national Republicans in New York City.

"Although top aides in his inner circle abused power and put politics above public safety, and despite the administration's botched effort to assist countless survivors of Superstorm Sandy, Governor Christie believes skipping off to New York City to solicit funds takes precedence over accountability. His priorities are seriously out of whack," said New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman John Currie. "It’s clear what’s most important to Chris Christie is Chris Christie, not the welfare of New Jersey's middle class families families."
Both the Star-Ledger and the Asbury Park Press have called on Governor Christie to resign from his chairmanship at the Republican Governors Association to spend more time doing the job the taxpayers of New Jersey are paying him to do. And, as the Bergen Record highlighted, even "Republican strategists are advising Christie to return to governing."
Christie Will Attend A Fundraiser In New York City Benefiting The NRSC Despite Postponing His First Town Hall Since Bridgegate. “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s first town hall since the Bridgegate story exploded last month was postponed due to snow, but he will be fundraising this evening in New York City for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, another example of the possible 2016 presidential candidate trying to broaden his national message while he deals with the fallout from the scandal at home. ‘Governor Christie is speaking at the welcome reception for the Winter NRSC Majority Makers Policy Retreat,’ a Christie aide told ABC.” [ABC News, 2/18/14]
