Gov. Christie in Manasquan at 3 p.m. Today
Inlet first stop on 'Endless Summer Tax Relief Tour'
Gov. Chris Christie, who for months has been touting his income tax relief proposal for all New Jerseyans, will make an appearance Monday in Manasquan to do just that.
Christie is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. at the Pavilion at the Manasquan Inlet, 431 Beach Front, for the first stop in what's being called the governor's "Endless Summer Tax Relief Tour: A Conversation at the Jersey Shore."
"(Christie) will call for Corzine Democrats to stop holding tax relief hostage and urge the legislature to continue the New Jersey Comeback and provide bipartisan leadership by delivering tax relief to our citizens, making our state more competitive and allowing us to put more New Jerseyans back to work," according to a release from the governor's office.
Democrats in the Legislature, who recently sent Christie a budget that doesn't raise taxes, have promised to reconsider the governor's proposal if his revenue projections match collections.
The Republican governor on Tuesday will leave for a fundraising tour of five states and the District of Columbia for presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
