Christie’s “Hold me accountable” moment?

Gov. Chris Christie assured NJ101.5 host Eric Scott on his Ask the Governor program Wednesday that once his cap takes effect, property taxes will not rise more than 2 percent.

Here is the exchange:

Scott: “So you’re convinced that we are going to see in this next budget cycle property taxes generally not increase more than 2 percent.”

Christie: “Yeah, not the property tax bills you are about to get this August.”

Scott: “Right, but next Year.”

Christie: “But next year, yes.”

Scott: “There’s a lot of people out there governor that hope you are right.”

Christie: “Listen, I know I’m going to be right.”

Christie went on to explain that municipalities will be forced to cut services when costs of contracts rise above the 2 percent cap.
