The AP has reported the following story below.  It’s also been covered at the Jersey Journal but somehow they left out the other side of the story, re: how the incoming Governor feels about the millions being doled out to select towns.  (He takes office in a week.)  Gov. Christie has talked about the reality facing New Jersey and the state’s deficit of approximately $7-8 billion.  Unlike the Federal government, there is no ability for the state to carry a deficit. Hey, at least they didn’t call it a stimulus.
