WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-Somerset) issued the following statement today:
“Direct quotes in a Tuesday POLITICO NJ article seemingly demonstrate corrupted power by leadership of a Trenton special interest that represents over one hundred thousand honest, rank-and-file, middle-class teachers.
“If true, the quotes all but confirm a potentially criminal quid pro quo involving political contributions and public policy.
“Given New Jersey’s perilous fiscal situation, how can we possibly point our state on the right path forward with much-needed reforms – school funding, public employee benefits and property taxes – if special interests exert this kind of power and influence?
“I support Senate President Sweeney’s call for state and federal authorities to commence an investigation.”
