TRENTON – After clashing with Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-34) of East Orange throughout the afternoon, Assemblyman Vince Polistina (R-2) of Egg Harbor Twp. clubbed back at the rostrum-bound Oliver with a firm rebuke.
“I respectfully disagree that you have given both sides latitude today,” Polistina told the speaker.
The assemblyman is in a competitive election this year, as he challenges state Sen. Jim Whelan (D-2) of Atlantic City.
“We are spending money we do not have,” said Polistina, objecting to the Democrats’ budget.
