Christie Should Stand By His Words on Sick Leave Payouts

Governor Chris Christie has repeatedly said that he wants to end sick leave payouts to retiring public employees.  Just last week he said, “Now, this is the kind of stuff that drives people crazy; it’s the kind of thing that makes New Jersey unaffordable.”

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, released the following statement:

“Governor Christie’s outrage over sick leave payouts means nothing unless he takes a stand on payouts going to people within his own party.  Governor Christie should stand by his own words and call upon Mastronardy to forgo his retirement payout before becoming the Ocean County Sheriff.”
