I received the following email in my inbox this morning from President Obama. The President is urging supporters to get behind the Corzine campaign and support the good work the Governor has done for New Jersey.
The President states that “Jon is a fighter for the middle class. He created a strong economic recovery plan designed to retain and attract business, instituted major reforms to ease unfair property tax burdens across the state, and made critical investments in schools and transportation infrastructure that will leave New Jersey stronger and more competitive in the years to come”
I think the President is right, Jon Corzine needs our support, read on:
Last Thursday, I visited Holmdel, NJ to stand with a great leader for New Jersey — your governor, Jon Corzine. Jon and I were joined by thousands of people like you who share our commitment to building a better future for New Jersey and our nation.
We live in challenging times. Now more than ever, we need leaders with the strength to make tough decisions and the courage to do the right thing — leaders who bring people together for a common purpose, and fight for the most vulnerable among us. Jon is one of those leaders.
I’m proud to have Jon as a partner as we all work to get our economy back on track, and I hope to work with him for years to come. But if I learned one thing from my campaign last year, it’s that none of us can do it alone. It will take thousands of people like you coming together and working as one to build a better future for New Jersey.
Today, I’m hoping you’ll stand with me to support a bold leader for New Jersey. Please volunteer for Jon’s campaign today.
The people of New Jersey know the cost of this economic crisis. The past months have not been easy, and weathering this storm has tested our spirit and required great sacrifice. But in Jon, you have a governor who has built consensus to help families get through it, while putting the state on a path to long-term prosperity.
In trying times, Jon is a fighter for the middle class. He created a strong economic recovery plan designed to retain and attract business, instituted major reforms to ease unfair property tax burdens across the state, and made critical investments in schools and transportation infrastructure that will leave New Jersey stronger and more competitive in the years to come.
I know Jon’s not done yet. We have a lot more work to do. Jon has set New Jersey in the right direction, and if you stand with him — and with me — the time and effort we invest today will pay off ten fold in the better New Jersey we’ll build together.
The stakes in this election are high, so I’m asking you to do your part — volunteer for Jon’s campaign today.
President Barack Obama
