“The Day of Reckoning” Has Arrived

12 Mar

Watch:  Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) delivered a stark message on February 24, 2010 to about 200 mayors at the Statehouse.

“We don’t have the money, so you need to prepare for what’s coming down the line,” he said in a speech at the New Jersey League of Municipalities 18th Annual Mayor’s Legislative Day. “You all know that these raises that are being given to public employees of all stripes, we can’t afford. You all know the state can’t continue to spend money it doesn’t have. And you all know that the appetite for tax increases among our constituents has come to an end.”

Hopefully, Gov. Christie is serious and sticks to his guns here.  If he can turn NJ’s fiscal situation around with a true Conservative approach, it will be great news for us all.  Who knows, maybe other politicians will find the courage to follow his lead!
