“In some ways, the story behind why [Christopher Cerf] is still only ‘acting’ makes him sound like a bad-ass,” said Joe Williams, executive director of Democrats for Education Reform in New York City. “For a guy who wants to break china and get things done, that’s not a terrible problem to have.”
From today’s NJ Spotlight, on why Cerf, a full year after his appointment by Gov. Christie for the top NJ DOE slot, has yet to be confirmed by the State Senate because Sen. Ronald Rice is exercising his “senatorial courtesy.” Reminiscent of recess in elementary school yards, the sort of “you’ve got the cooties” antics, no? Maybe Cerf can slap Rice with a Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying charge while Sen. Rice holds his breath until his face turns blue and make the whole Senate look infantile. No wonder people are fed up with government.
