Governor Christie on New Jersey Supreme Court’s Abbott Ruling – 844-292-1318 New Jersey legal aid

May 24, 2011: Governor Christie issued this statement regarding today’s Supreme Court’s Abbott District Ruling.

FULL TRANSCRIPT:

Today’s ruling by the State Supreme Court is disappointing, but not unexpected.

There are several reasons why I believe this decision represents everything that’s wrong with how Trenton has historically operated and everything that I am here fighting to change.

First, as a fundamental principle, I do not believe that it is the role of the State Supreme Court to determine what programs the State should and should not be funding, and to what amount.

The Court should not be dictating how taxpayer dollars are spent and prioritizing certain programs over others. The Supreme Court is not the Legislature; it should not dictate policy, it should not be in the business of discussing specific taxes to be raised and it should not have any business deciding how tax dollars are spent. A number of the members of the current Supreme Court agreed with that very position in today’s decision.

Those responsible for making decisions regarding how money is raised through taxes and how it is spent by government are those elected by the people and ultimately held accountable by the people.

Secondly, I believe the Court’s decision is based on a failed legal and educational theory that incorrectly reasons the key to establishing a thorough and efficient system of education is to throw more money at failing schools.

Let me be clear, I do believe funding education is critically important to New Jersey’s future. Even before today’s Court decision, we increased education aid by 0 million to every school district in this year’s proposed budget.

But, we must also acknowledge that money does not equal quality results. And there is now nearly 30 years of evidence that just throwing money at the problem is not the answer.

We should be getting better results with the taxpayer money we already spend and we aren’t which means changing the educational system goes beyond dollars and cents.

However, as Governor of New Jersey, I realize that regardless of my personal beliefs, I must comply with the New Jersey Constitution as interpreted by the New Jersey Supreme Court. In February, I submitted my budget to the Legislature for review and consideration. That is my constitutional obligation. Now the legislature has until June 30th to fulfill its constitutional obligation to pass a final budget.

In the light of the court’s ruling, it is now up to the Legislature to determine how the State is best able to fund the additional 0 million in aid to the Abbott districts specifically ordered in footnote 23 by the Court’s majority while also meeting the State’s other funding priorities as I proposed them. I have complete confidence that the Legislature understands its unique constitutional obligation to send a balance budget to me by June 30th. I am also confident that the Legislature understands its independent constitutional obligation to comply with the Supreme Court’s order in whatever budget they send to me for my consideration by the June 30th deadline.

I fully expect the Legislature will send me in a timely manner for my review and consideration a constitutionally balanced budget that includes how the Court’s order will be met.

My principles remain the same. New Jersey has some of the highest taxes in America. New Jerseyans are already incredibly overtaxed. Therefore, as I have repeatedly stated, I do not believe raising taxes is the answer. That has not changed.

I stand ready to execute my constitutional duties and consider what the Legislature submits as its final budget to me by June 30th.

Merck & Co., Inc. Pro Bono Program – 844-292-1318 New Jersey legal aid

Kenneth C. Frazier, CEO; Bruce N. Kuhlik, General Counsel, Whitehouse Station, NJ

Recipient of the 2015 PLAN Excellence Award
March 24, 2015

Merck & Co., Inc., Pro Bono Program — Kenneth C. Frazier Esq., Chairman of the Board, President & Chief Executive Officer & Bruce N. Kuhlik, Esq., Executive Vice President & General Counsel have championed pro bono service to the poor and empowered Merck’s attorneys to meet their professional obligation to ensure access to justice through pro bono representation of the poor and disadvantaged. Merck’s Pro Bono Program began in 1994 when a small group of Merck attorneys and support staff piloted a pro bono project at the Merck facility in Rahway, New Jersey in response to a challenge from former senior Vice President and General Counsel to company attorneys. Today, Merck’s Pro Bono Program has grown to more than 175 attorneys, paralegals and administrative associates from offices across ten countries helping expand access to justice for clients who have nowhere else to turn for help.

Kenneth C. Frazier, Esq. is a true friend and strong supporter of equal access to justice programs here in Pennsylvania and nationally. He has been the leader of NLADA’s national corporate counsel campaign to provide support for NLADA’s efforts and repeatedly champions the importance of civil legal aid. Mr. Frazier was recently the keynote speaker at the Philadelphia Bar Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Gala. He showed his concrete support of legal aid by providing a leadership gift to CLS’ capital campaign to build a new office building at Broad and Erie in Philadelphia, just a few blocks from where he grew up. Mr. Frazier joined Governor Rendell at the ribbon cutting for the new building.

Bruce N. Kuhlik, Esq. is Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Merck & Co., Inc. Bruce is responsible for the Office of General Counsel and the Global Communications, Public Policy, Corporate Responsibility and Security functions. He is also a member of Merck’s Executive Committee, the senior management group that oversees the Company’s strategic direction. Bruce joined Merck as Vice President and Associate General Counsel in 2005, with responsibility for product liability and other litigation and regulatory and commercial law. He was promoted to General Counsel in 2007, succeeding Ken Frazier. He has worked to expand the company’s rich tradition of pro bono service. In 2013, Mr. Kuhlik and Merck were honored by the Pro Bono Institute with the Laurie D. Zelon Pro Bono Award.
