    C’mon Art, why do you think Angelini didn’t return a phone call? Do you think because her two running mates, O’Scanlon and Beck are willing to cross CC by voting to override his veto?

    All three of these legislators should be ashamed of themselves. They will directly benefit being in the same voting column as CC. I just hope he doesn’t come to their district to campaign for them–they’re not worthy of his support!

    O’Scanlon is not running with Angelini; however, CC should not campaign for him as well for the same reasons I suggested above.

    Sorry for the mistake.

    What’s wrong with Asmb. O’Scanlon and Sen. Beck voting their conscience (and the way the majority of their districts feel) on this issue? They support the Gov 90% of the time anyway.

    I doubt that the big guy feels very strongly about the issue anyway so many having a view that is opposite the Gov’s on this is nothing anyone is going to be thrown overboard over.

    I wish any one of them would make as strong of an effort to address my property taxes as they do to get gay marriage passed. I know, I know… blame the unions, blame the guy before, blame the urban areas, blame blame blame…. how about finally taking on the tough battle instead of kicking the can down the road, again?

    Exactly right- the unemployment rate, higher than the national rate, still stinks here, businesses and people are still leaving, taxes are way too high, there are too many regulations everywhere, the overpasses are rusty, the lawns don’t get cut, tolls are up, and they worry about this issue,which I for one, am so sick of, I could scream!..All this is, is a play to grab a few more lib votes, to make up for the coattails this gov. is not bringing,down ballot.. What a shame- when many of their local constituents,people in places like Union Beach or Sea Bright still have no help,or hope of any, THIS they grab headlines with- so, really, a pox on all of them!!
