Guscoria Skipping Today’s Legislative Session

Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (LD15) says he’s not attending today’s special session.  Yesterday, he was locked out of the Senate chamber when the Governor gave his address.  Unable to gain entry since he didn’t have his credentials on him, he tried entering as a member of the public.

“Notwithstanding, myself and many others were refused access as public citizens to hear our Governor speak about a budget that impacts all of our lives in fundamental ways. This was in a building and during a proceeding that should have been open to the public,” Gusciora said in a release.

“I take issue with much of what Governor Christie has done during his time in office, but the last 72 hours definitively prove what many members of the Democratic caucus and I have been saying for years:  we are not dealing with a man who cares about the best interests of New Jersey, but rather with one whose primary goal is to bully us into accepting a radical, immoral agenda that serves to enrich his cronies. He and his legislative cohorts are holding our budget negotiations hostage and doing so away from the public eye in an attempt to obfuscate corrupt backroom deals.  Just as the public cannot, I will not attend Chris Christie’s session. If he has something significant to say, he can say it to everyone, or he can keep it to himself.”
