Governor Christie Gives Final State of the State Address

Governor Christie Gives Final State of the State Address

"We need to look at comprehensive tax reform".

"We needed tough and plain-spoken leadership to deal with these problems", he said. When Christie started his first term in 2010, the state's unemployment rate was at over 10 percent but had dipped to 4.9 percent as of October, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The New Jersey Assembly approved a bill to allow a handful of public officials to re-enroll in the pension system after being kicked off when elected to a new office.

In a almost 90-minute speech, the Republican governor took a victory lap for everything from creating jobs to vetoing tax hikes, working to revitalize Camden and all but eliminating cash bail. "I vetoed corporate tax increases", he said.

The brash Republican will turn the state over to Democrats next Tuesday. State law requires that there is an even distribution between Republicans and Democrats on our Superior Court.

His popularity and job approval felll sharply, particularly after the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal in which three of his allies were convicted in a political retribution scheme. Justice is available to all in every county.

"This did not have to be Gov. Christie's legacy", Ashley Koning, assistant research professor and director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, said in a prepared statement. "Governor Christie will be remembered as the most successful governor this state has had this century", Bucco said.

Christie also highlighted his efforts to help rebuild Atlantic City and Camden, bail reform and the growing opioid epidemic.

"I've never been one of the biggest fans of tax incentives, but when we can have so many jobs in the state of New Jersey, it will be great".

"I can only tell you who ultimately executed on it and that was [Steve] Bannon, [Reince] Priebus, and [Jared] Kushner", he told NJ.com. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will.

Other numbers that cast a dim light on Christie included only 18 percent of those polled believing he is leaving New Jersey in better shape than when he took office, while 40 percent said he is leaving the Garden State in worse shape than he found it. "For that and so much more, I thank you".

Just four years ago, Christie was a national political phenomenon, winning 60 percent of the vote in a blue state, and performing well among minorities.

Murphy will replace Christie as Governor next week.

"You're probably not going to be happy because we're not going to fight as much", at least not publicly, Sweeney told reporters. This was believed to have been done to punish the mayor of Fort Lee, New Jersey, for not supporting Christie's 2013 reelection. "None of the things the governor talked about would've happened without Democratic support".
