Assembly Judiciary Chairman John McKeon (D-27), who is co-leading the joint legislative inquiry into NJ Transit troubles, this morning shot a response back at Gov. Chris Christie, and in the process threw an elbow at Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11).
Frelinghuysen was the ultimate target, whom Christie had praised for federal work on the transit front.
“Gov. Chris Christie’s selfish political ambitions are the reason we’re not six months from a third tunnel, instead of 10 years away,” said McKeon. “The temerity to try and take a bow for funding that’s far from a certainty thanks to President [Donald] Trump is an outrage, but not a surprise.
“The next 10 years at least will be fraught with inconveniences to commuters, disrupting their family lives as a continued reminder of the Christie/Guadagno transportation legacy,” added the assemblyman from Essex County. As to Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, he has many more billions to go to make amends for his healthcare vote.”
McKeon continues to aggressively poke around on a 2018 challenge to Frelinghuysen.
