Christie: ‘Enough Is Enough’ In NJEA War Of Words

Gov. Chris Christie says it may be time to call a truce in the war of words between him and New Jersey’s teachers’ union.

But the call came after the governor leveled some pointed criticism at the union during a town hall event Monday.

The governor told a crowd at the Archdiocesan Youth Retreat Center Gym in Kearny that the New Jersey Education Association has a “political slush fund” that’s spent millions on ads attacking him, money that should be used for merit pay for teachers.

When a woman who said she is a second-grade teacher asked Christie to end the name-calling and personal attacks, the governor said he would if the union would.

A union spokesman says the group has attacked Christie’s policies but not him personally.
