Christie applauds judge’s decision in pension suit case

Gov. Chris Christie issued a statement in response to Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson’s ruling in his favor this afternoon.

“This was one of the hard choices the people of New Jersey expect me to make, and I am pleased the court recognized the necessity and urgency of this decision so that we can provide key funding for our schools, our colleges, our hospitals and other essential services,” Christie said. “For our state’s families who are already overburdened by high taxes, raising taxes even further would not solve a problem created by decades of neglect and irresponsibility.”
