Is Bramnick Taking a Page out of Christie’s Play Book?

To the editor:

Last evening Assemblyman Jon Bramnick, Westfield resident and Republican incumbent in Legislative District 21, demonstrated once and for all that he's stuck in the past. Assemblyman Bramnick held a campaign fundraiser at which the cost of admission was a whopping $5,200 — and the "special guest" was Governor Christie! While I realize that our neighbor and Assembly Republican leader has been firmly allied with Christie for years, does he really think his best chance for re-election is aligning himself with the least popular governor in state history?

Bramnick makes noise that he cares about our needs here in Westfield and in the towns of our district. But where has he been all this time? Where was he when Christie canceled the ARC tunnel? Why hasn't he spoken out on the transit issues that continue to plague commuters as a result of Christie’s disastrous decision? This fundraiser proves once again how chummy he is with Christie, and how much he is out of touch with his district.

Assemblyman Bramnick's name has been circulated as a contender for appointment to the U.S. Senate if Senator Bob Menendez’s term is cut short as a result of federal corruption charges. Christie alone has the power to appoint Bramnick if Menendez steps down or is removed prior to the November elections. So is Bramnick taking a page out of Christie’s play book? Christie abandoned New Jersey to pursue national ambitions and Bramnick appears to be following suit. Is he too looking to Washington instead of taking care of our business here at home?

Come November, I'll definitely be voting for Bramnick’s opponent Lacey Rzeszowski. It’s time to say goodbye to Christie and his cronies, and elect someone who actually cares about the people of New Jersey.
