13 Sep You Talking To Me??
Two weeks ago Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey made the mistake of calling our very own Governor Brown a “old retread” reffering to Governor Brown’s age. In what looked like a big brother stepping in an elementrary school fight Speaker John Perez called out Christie stating on Sacramento’s KXTV “ Chris Christie should pick on someone his own size, and I’m right here if he wants to do that”. Brown also quickly responded by challenging the New Jersey Governor to a fitness challenge entailing a three-mile race, a push up and chin-up contest. The confident Governor of California stated “ Whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome”.
After what some Californians would consider one of the most productive legislative sessions in years, Gov. Brown looked to make an example out of Christie and show him not only how to run a state, but how run 3 consecutive miles.
Since the challenge was not accepted by the New Jersey Governor, Gov. Brown has no choice but to funnel his energy on signing/vetoing bills.
