Teacher outraged at Christie’s tactics

TRENTON – Marie Corfield of Hunterdon County, the teacher who confronted Gov. Chris Christie at a town hall meeting earlier and who is seeking a 16th legislative district Assembly seat, said she is “outraged” at the negative tone Gov. Chris Christie has used against public employees, particularly teachers, portraying them as greedy and selfish.

“I am outraged, I am shocked, I am disgusted.”

She urged the union members at today’s labor rally here to vote in November, because elections have consequences.

“If we are not at the table, we will be on the menu,” she said. “We cannot let this continue. We are the engine that drives this state.”

Corfield is running against Assemblyman Pete Biondi (R-16) and Somerset County Freeholder Jack Ciattarelli.
