Lisa Jackson’s shot at Christie

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson, considered a potential Democratic gubernatorial candidate in 2013, used her speech at the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce dinner in Washington last week to criticize Republican Gov. Christopher Christie for skipping the event. “Folks, we can bring more change by sitting down at a table and having a meal here in DC, talking to each other, than we can yelling or editorializing about why we’re not here,” said Jackson, who served as Jon Corzine’s state Environmental Protection Commissioner, and briefly as his Chief of Staff. This was a clear shot at Christie, who skipped the chamber trip in a very public way, by the highest ranking New Jerseyan in the Obama administration.
