(Paterson, NJ) – Assembly Majority Conference Leader Shavonda Sumter (D-Bergen, Passaic) issued the following statement regarding the court’s pension ruling:
“It is unfortunate that the trust of New Jersey’s hardworking public workers continues to be shattered by the perpetual avoidance of this administration to fulfill its promise to fully fund the pension system.
“Democrats have worked hard to meet pension requirements set forth under the law. We will continue to do what is right by New Jersey’s public workers, taxpayers and the state’s economic future.
“We cannot afford any further dawdling on pension payments. In the coming months I hope to see a real effort on behalf of the Governor to meet the pensions requirements fully.”
