Buono Statement on Codey Announcement

Here is Senator Buono's statement following the announcement by Senator Dick Codey will not seek his party's nomination for Governor:  

"Governor Codey's life has been defined by his strong affinity for public service.  As an Assemblyman, as a Senator, and as Governor, he has led the charge in the fight for New Jersey's middle class taxpayers.

Governor Codey's legacy has always been that of someone willing to take on those tough fights with grace and humility and I am proud to have served with him in the Senate just as I am proud to call him a friend.  

Under Governor Christie, New Jersey's working and middle class has suffered from the highest unemployment rate in three decades, soaring property taxes, and a troubling lack of educational opportunity.  The only way to change direction is to change our leader.

I'm proud of the support that our campaign has generated these past few weeks.  As we march towards Election Day, we'll continue to move around the state and talk to everyday families about our plan for getting New Jersey back to work and giving our kids the education they deserve."
