12 Jul: Lesniak-Whelan-Cunningham Disappointed Republicans Failed To Support Valuable After-School Programs

TRENTON – Senators Raymond J. Lesniak, Jim Whelan and Sandra Bolden Cunningham expressed disbelief today that Senate Republicans voted in lock-step against resolutions designed to restore after-school programs for children in need throughout New Jersey.

“Governor Christie’s cutting After 3 school programs targets his wrath on working single parent mothers who struggle every day to make ends meet,” said Senator Lesniak, D-Union. “The After 3 program also protects at risk children from gangs, drugs and violence. Ending After 3 makes no sense, is irresponsible and cruel.”
