Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno is speaking her own mind and getting establishing independence from Governor Chris Christie.
Guadagno went onto Bill Spadea’s morning radio show at NJ 101.5 and agreed with Spadea that voters should reject ballot question 2, the provision that would dedicate the new gas tax revenues to transportation projects. Spadea and Guadagno are arguing that the dedication of the revenue will allow Trenton to borrow billions of dollars to fund the projects.
Before Guadagno completed her segment on the show, Christie’s spokesman Brian Murray issued the following statement:
“The Governor supports ballot question 2 because it will ensure that all gas tax revenues can only be spent on roads, bridges and mass transit. This protects taxpayers from future wasteful spending by Democrat legislators. The Governor finds it hard to believe that the Lieutenant Governor supports giving an unguarded pot of money to the Democrat-controlled legislature, rather than on needed infrastructure projects. It must be a misunderstanding.”
