CHAIRMAN CURRIE STATEMENT ON CONGRESSMAN ROB ANDREWS’ RESIGNATION ANNOUNCEMENT

 

(Trenton) — John Currie, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, reacted to Congressman Rob Andrews’ announcement that he plans to resign later this month:

 

“For nearly a quarter of a century, Congressman Rob Andrews has worked to improve educational opportunities for New Jersey students, to grow the economy responsibly, and to ensure a strong national defense. Although I am confident in the prospects for Democrats to win his seat, he leaves a lasting legacy. No doubt, Congressman Andrews’ presence in Washington, fighting on behalf of the people of the first congressional district, will be missed. I wish he and his family well as he begins a new endeavor.”

 

 

CURRIE STATEMENT ON CHRISTIE’S ASK THE GOVERNOR RADIO BROADCAST

Tonight, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee John Currie reacted to Governor Chris Christie’s “Ask the Governor” radio broadcast on New Jersey 101.5 FM noting that, as predicted, the governor was not interested in answering the pressing questions that New Jerseyans have about the serious failures and potential illegalities of his administration. And, unfortunately, now there are more new questions.

 

(Trenton) — Tonight, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee John Currie issued the following statement on Governor Chris Christie’s “Ask the Governor” radio broadcast on New Jersey 101.5 FM:

 

“Sadly, as predicted, Governor Christie was not interested in answering the pressing questions that New Jerseyans have about the serious failures and potential illegalities of his administration. And, unfortunately, now there are more new questions.”

 

“Was Superstorm Sandy funding used inappropriately? How could George Washington Bridge access bridge lanes have been closed by Christie’s top lieutenants without his knowledge, awareness, or even curiosity? And why does he always make state governance an issue about him, personally, not the people of New Jersey?”

 

“After an hour of screened questions, the only thing we really learned is that Governor Christie thinks the frustrating breakdown of his administration is just a distraction brewed up by others. His continual denial of the scandalous allegations confronting him, not to mention their impact on New Jerseyans, is truly appalling.”
