Walking the walk: NJ Gov. Chris Christie to cut 1,200 public sector jobs

Governor Chris Christie is the kind of new Politician who we need more of in our Capitals...He is a no nonsense guy who calls out those who have been gouging the Taxpayers for years...Of course that makes him a target for Unions and their Public Employee membership....

As far as I'm concerned, all I can say is, YOU GO GOVERNOR ! I don't live in New Jersey but you are my kind of Politician and maybe, just maybe, you can be an example how others can change the landscape so the rest of us can stop getting gouged by state & local employees who have set themselves up as a privileged class.
Now some of them can get an idea what the rest of us have been dealing with for the past few years...a little perspective is a good thing.

He will also be on Meet the Press this Sunday 11/07/10...

Walking the walk: NJ Gov. Chris Christie to cut 1,200 public sector jobs

Since assuming office, Chris Christie has been relentlessly hammering home the message that New Jersey’s state government, which is badly in the red, must live within its means. But he’s also not afraid to make the tough decisions either. Whereas the previous governor, Jon Corzine, struck a deal to prevent layoffs in the public sector at a time when private sector workers were unemployed in record numbers, here comes Christie taking on the public sector unions:

State government is on track to shed at least 1,200 jobs in January, Gov. Chris Christie said today.
“Whether it will grow beyond that, I don’t know,” he said at a Statehouse press conference. “That’s very much going to be dependent on what the revenue outlook looks like for the state.”

The job cuts include layoffs and attrition, spokesman Michael Drewniak said.

How much do you think unions are going to spend to take Christie out when he runs for reelection? Sky’s the limit, I bet.
