GOV. CHRISTIE KICKS OFF ‘NO PAIN NO GAIN’ SUMMER TOUR DISCUSSING PENSION & BENEFIT REFORM IN LBI —
Governor Chris Christie headed to LBI Township on Tuesday to hold the first summer shore conversation of his “No Pain. No Gain.” tour to talk with New Jerseyans about the urgent need for pension and benefit reform. As Governor Christie warned in his 2014 State of the State address, New Jersey’s pension and benefit system is on track to overwhelm the state budget unless further reforms are made to control the unsustainable costs of our entitlement system. Watch Governor Christie explain why it is time to make tough choices in order to protect New Jersey’s fiscal health:
During Tuesday’s shore conversation, Governor Christie had an honest and thoughtful conversation with a 73-year-old retired police chief, Larry Parker. The Governor’s discussion with Larry underscores how pension and benefit reform is an important issue for all New Jerseyans, and is one that we must overcome together:
