She Says: 'I Wouldn't Be Sitting On The Beach'

Day #3 is here, Save Jerseyans, and while Governor Chris Christie worked on his tan at the taxpayer-subsidized Island Beach State Park getaway, a stone’s throw down the road, Lt.  Governor Kim Guadagno spent Monday afternoon huddled with local business owners impacted by the state-wide government shutdown precipitated by the Governor’s scheme to tax Horzion’s ratepayers:
This shutdown is bad for business. @BumRogersTavern at the entrance to Island Beach State Park would be full right now if IBSP was open.
Owners in the vicinity of the popular tourist attraction reported significantly diminish retail salesthis holiday weekend.
“If I were governor, I sure wouldn’t be sitting on the beach if taxpayers didn’t have access to state beaches. It’s beyond words,” Guadagno said in a separate statement released via social media. “We need to end the shutdown now. It’s hurting small businesses and ordinary New Jerseyans. Instead of political games, Governor Christie, Speaker Prieto and Senate President Sweeney should pass a budget that delivers property tax relief and puts taxpayers first.”

On Sunday, Guadagno (the GOP’s 2017 gubernatorial nominee) called on all factions to shelve the Horizon legislation and  compromise on sick leave payout reform.
