Christie to New Yorkers: come to NJ

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - With a new mayor being sworn in as the next leader of New York City on January 1, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is telling New Yorkers to leave the Big Apple for the Garden State.

Christie told the Wall Street Journal CEO Council on Monday that New York is going in the "wrong direction" with taxes expected to go up when Bill de Blasio takes over.

The NY Post reported the story on Tuesday:

"You see taxes being increased there," Christie said. "You have a new mayor in New York who is aggressively talking about increasing taxes in New York City. While I feel badly for New Yorkers, come to New Jersey."

Christie is not the only politician encouraging New Yorkers to move out of state.

Tom Foley, the GOP candidate for governor in Connecticut, released ads this week encouraging New Yorkers to move to Connecticut.

"Connecticut next year will probably elect a new mayor. Enjoy one more year in your city and then come join us in Connecticut," Foley says in a TV spot.
