MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) issued the following remarks about the State of the State:

“Governor Christie has consistently led us in a bipartisan fashion to accomplish landmark reforms, with a steadfast focus on accomplishing what the people elected us all to get done. Under his leadership, New Jersey is well on its way to recovering from its darkest days: Superstorm Sandy and the Great Recession.

“Clearly, this Governor is not the type of leader who will be paralyzed by any crisis. The people can expect him to propose and fight for the vital reforms that they want to move New Jersey forward and make it more competitive.

“In this new year, legislators must do much more than just conduct oversight and scrutiny of admitted problems. As so many Democrats promised voters to get re-elected, they must partner with the governor on an agenda for the people of this state.”
