Gov Christie - Stop Wasting Our Tax Dollars to Promote Your Political Career

To be delivered to Governor Chris Christie

Petition Statement

You claim to place the highest priority on looking out for New Jersey's taxpayers, yet there are multiple examples of you using taxpayer dollars to promote your own political ambitions. You can't have it both ways, claiming to protect New Jersey's taxpayers while at the same time wasting our taxpayer dollars to promote your political career.

We, as New Jersey taxpayers, demand that you stop wasting our tax dollars to promote your political career.
There are currently 5,035 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

NJ Citizen Action is launching this petition to demand that Governor Christie stop wasting taxpayer dollars to promote his political ambitions.

Some of Gov Christie's most egregious tax-wasting hits include:

1. Spending over $1 million in legal fees, paid for by us, the New Jersey taxpayers, on an internal "investigation" exonerating him of all wrong doing in the Bridgegate scandal.
2. Mis-using 25 million in taxpayer dollars to fund the "Stronger than the Storm " ad campaign, featuring Gov Christie and his family, during an election year, when a bid from another firm which would not have featured Christie or his family, came in several million dollars cheaper.
3. Needlessly wasting 12 million in taxpayer dollars to fund a Special Senate Election, scheduled less than three weeks before the regularly scheduled November election, guaranteeing Governor Christie top billing on the November ballot.
