HOBOKEN - Add 4th Ward City Council Candidate Tim Occhipinti to those who oppose Gov. Christopher Christie’s plan to scrap the ARC mass transit tunnel project.
“The governor is right when he says that this was not a perfect project,” Occhipinti said in a press release. “But the appropriate response is to use the power of the governor’s office to bring all the parties together to fix it. Scrapping the entire plan is like taking your marbles home when the game isn’t going your way.”
Occhipinti called on Christie to “stay at the table” to help work out the problems, and not walk away from $3 billion in federal transportation assistance.
“The ARC tunnel is not so terribly flawed that it should be scrapped entirely,” Occhipinti said.
