    You expressed outrage in what happened with governmental abuse of its citizens during Bridgegate. You had kids crapping their pants because they were stuck in traffic created by your friend CC’s unqualified appointments at the PA.

    You had emergency response vehicles that would have had difficulty navigating the gridlock throughout Fort Lee.

    You ORIGINALLY voted for reform through Senator Gordon’s Bill—and now you fail to support and defend your original vote??? Your a failure and disgrace. It’s time for you to go. You have supported Christie and his corruption on this matter and said screw you to the taxpayers and residents of this state.

    I watched the 6 minute video and Senator Kyrillos provides a detailed and thoughtful explanation for his decision to support Governor Christie on the veto of the Port Authority legislation.

    Basically the bill has to get through two houses in both NY and NJ and both Cuomo and Christie vetoed the same bill. So there will be another bill no matter what. Hopefully this vote will result in and improved bill.

    Senator Kyrillos is calling for a compromise bill which incorporates portions of both Senator Gordon and Senator Kean ideas with the premise that NY Ds & Rs in the Senate, Assemby and Gov will also need to agree.

    Mike, the original bill passed both houses in two states unanimously! Not one legislator, Democrat or Republican, voted against the bill.

    There was no need to comprise as Sen. Kean proposed. It would have been a watered down version of the original bill, and controlled by a committee that the governors put in place. Can you believe it? The very same people who were responsible for the bad behavior of their respective appointees.

    You have to rid the governors of anything to do with the PA. They look at the PA as one big piggy bank, to dump their unqualified high school friends in six-figure positions.

    Bob Ingle had an excellent editorial about this very same subject in todays APP. I will post it later.

    Senator Kryillos offered clear reasoning for his decision. His candid assessment is on point and a far cry from partisan Democrats who simply want to score points.
