Candidate For Lt. Governor
They discuss an array of topics from her qualifications for office to gun control legislation to Governor Chris Christie’s political aspirations. Some quotes from the interview:
On her qualifications for Lt. Governor, and potentially Governor, Silva says: “I have street smarts in that I understand what it means to stand up for the people in your communities. I have book smarts in that I am a graduate of Columbia University and I understand how important it is that we invest in higher education… I have common sense, in that I understand that the working people need to have a strong economy.”
Regarding Governor Christie’s political aspirations, she comments, “Governor Christie has made decisions that are in a way to advantage what are his personal ambitions and not the people of New Jersey.”
