February 24, 2015

Trenton, NJ – New Jersey Republican State Committee Chairman Samuel Raia issued the below statement following Governor Chris Christie’s FY2016 Budget Address in Trenton earlier today:

“Once again, Governor Christie has demonstrated the true meaning of strong, Republican leadership. For the sixth year in a row, the Governor has kept fiscal discipline a top priority by proposing a budget that is responsible, balanced, and requires no new taxes for the hardworking people of our state. In stark contrast to the partisanship that paralyzes D.C., the Governor today took bold steps to address our challenges head on and deliver the type of bipartisan solutions that New Jerseyans need and deserve. I applaud Governor Christie’s commitment to making the tough, yet necessary choices for our state and I strongly urge Democrats in Trenton to support his ongoing efforts to keep New Jersey moving in the right direction.”
