The Republican Governors Association launched a new television advertisement today outlining why Jon Corzine has the worst environmental record in New Jersey history.
The RGA also began airing a Spanish-language radio advertisement today reminding New Jersey Latinos that under Jon Corzine’s leadership their taxes have skyrocketed, unemployment has nearly doubled, and public corruption remains rampant.
“Jon Corzine has let down all the citizens of New Jersey,” said RGA communications director Mike Schrimpf. “His multi-billion dollar tax hikes have driven thousands upon thousands of jobs from the state and made it harder for families to make ends meet.”
“Voters recognize that Jon Corzine has been a complete failure on the economy, jobs, taxes, and balancing the state budget,” Schrimpf said. “What´s less well known, but equally clear, is Corzine´s failure to protect New Jersey´s environment.”
In fact, a Sierra Club report says Corzine has overseen a “wholesale dismantling of environmental protections” in New Jersey.
“You just can’t trust Jon Corzine,” Schrimpf concluded.

Are things in New Jersey better or worse under Governor Jon Corzine’s leadership?
Most people in the Latino community say they’re worse. In New Jersey, good jobs are hard to find. Jon Corzine told us his Wall Street experience would bring jobs, but unemployment is up ninety percent.
Corzine told us he would cut taxes. But New Jersey pays the highest taxes in America, and Corzine just raised them even higher.
Corzine told us he would run a clean state government. But his political cronies were just arrested, and Corzine’s own cabinet member had his house raided by the F.B.I.
The hard working taxpayers in New Jersey’s Latino community, and all of New Jersey, deserve better.
