Parsippany is sure being good to the governor

At least in terms of giving him fodder on which to comment. Last year, Chris Christie used Parsippany superintendent of schools Lee Seitz as the “poster boy” for greedy educators after the board gave Seitz a new contract far in excess of the state’s pending cap on super’s salaries.

And just this week, the governor was talking about Parsippany again. This time it was to highlight hundreds of thousands of dollars paid to retiring cops in unused sick and vacation time. The governor was stressing the need for benefit reform.

  1. Former Tea Party voter says:

    I saw the video on you web site. His comment that the problem today is not the public employees problem , but all the elected officials who came before himi who let this happen THe truth hurts but at least he is truthful.

  2. Dan Grant says:

    That may be what he says now but his actions say different. He has named particular people and attacked the recipients of these pensions and salaries. He has demonized Teachers, Police and any public workers since the day he got into office. If he had stuck a finger in someones chest in a bar room debate the way he did at that town meeting he would have left with a fat lip.
