N.J. Dem lawmakers try to force Christie’s resignation, but we have a better idea everyone in Trenton should forced to resign

Lets face it the State is run like crap, roads arnt paved , bridges are falling down, pension go unfunded and yet we suffer the highest taxes in the land 
Its time for everyone involved in state government to just step down TRENTON — Democratic state lawmakers will soon introduce legislation that would force Gov. Chris Christie to resign from office because he is running for president, NJ Advance Media has learned.State Sens. Raymond Lesniak (D-Union) and Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen), who are expected to co-sponsor the bill, said they are fed up with Christie’s frequent absences from New Jersey this year in the run-up to last week’s announcement that he’s running for the White House. The bill would require Christie and any future governor to resign in order to run for president.

“He’s not doing the state any good by spending the bulk of his time out of state,” Lesniak said. “And even when he’s in-state, he’s focusing on what he has to do to get elected president — which often runs contrary to what he ought to do for the state.”

  1. Wonderful idea.

  2. They want him out because he does what he can to block their business-as-usual crap. The crap that used to pass through that got this State into the financial predicament that it’s in.

  3. Could he be thrown out even if he didn’t run? Please?

  4. “Christie has been out of state for more than a third of his second term and more than half of this year.” Can you do that your job?

  5. Just like the President who goes on a lot of golf trips, the office goes wherever he goes. The same information and decisions can be made from anywhere. Me? I can work from home whenever I like if I don’t want to go into the office. Technology is a wonderful thing.

  6. Just like the Council Women who cast her vote from Africa. Just phone it in right Declan? Then why does he have to travel all over the US just use Technology to run for office. If it work for running the sate then it should work for running for president.

  7. Opinion: When Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer sent a letter to all employees rescinding their right to work from home, gasps of shock were heard across the world—from Washington’s Bureau of Labor Statistics to Necker Island, Caribbean home office of Virgin boss Richard Branson.

    The Yahoo decision brought teleworking back into the spotlight for organizations and their staff. Towering above the should-they-shouldn’t-they debate was this unasked question:

    Why Not?
    Why don’t we all work from home? After all, this is the age of hyperconnectivity, always-on devices, and high bandwidth connections:

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that one in four of U.S. workers works from home, at least some of the time.
    In the period 2005—2011, U.S. teleworking grew 73%.
    The Telework Research Network reports that teleworking programs increase productivity and employee satisfaction,

    Yet company bosses are busy renting more office space. Why?

    Command And Control
    The intuitive answer would be that many companies worry about losing control of their employees. Teleworkers frequently back this perception by citing difficulties in performance reviews, when compared to their office-based peers.

    There may be some truth to these, but neither is the full story.

    Yes, remote workers may indeed be more carefree, happier and productive, but that doesn’t mean they’re good for their companies. A company is more than just the work that needs to be done, plus the workers who are there to do it.

    A healthy organization has a culture that allows the sharing of values and ideas, the formation of a corporate identity, and the sense of competitive urgency that allows a company to be agile and innovative.

    However, working from home can fail to fire up remote workers in the same way as a shared company environment. As a result, companies suffer—despite the increases in productivity and staff morale that come with teleworking.

    The Case Against Teleworking
    While Yahoo raised eyebrows with its decision, resistance to teleworking comes from companies that would normally be expected to support it.

    Google workers, for instance, are brought into Mountain View on a free wi-fi enabled bus, and they’re encouraged to spend up to 20% of their time on projects other than their own work. Yet when it comes to working from home, the company line is to keep it to the barest minimum, unless it involves putting in extra hours after leaving the office.

    When even hyperconnected tech companies that want you to take time off work, at work, frown on working remotely, the suggestion that it’s all about controlling employees seems to stand on shaky ground.

    Creativity And Institutional Memory
    Ultimately a company is only as good as its people. The value of each worker centers on the knowledge they have and the knowledge they can gain.

    In work environments that see co-workers mingle and shoot the breeze around the water cooler, some real learning gets done. A lot of information exchange takes place, which allows the very same workers to increase their value to the organization. They’re able to tap into this undocumented flow of information and knowledge.

    Marissa Mayer’s oft-cited letter to Yahoo employees stated:

    We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home.

    (Emphasis mine.) She wasn’t referring so much to the quality of work done as to the qualities that employees bring to a company when they get together around the water cooler and talk shop.

    She probably learned this while at Google. It’s a sentiment echoed by Google’s CFO, Patrick Pichette. In an interview with Australian journalist Ben Grubb, he explained Google’s counterintuitive anti-teleworking stance:

    There is something magical about sharing meals. There is something magical about spending the time together, about noodling on ideas, about asking, “What do you think of this?”

    Magical or not, the fact remains that teleworking generally doesn’t work well, because corporations still haven’t solved the issues of remote learning, knowledge sharing, or firing up ideas. If that “magic” is to happen, you still need office face-time.

    The Bottom Line
    As technological change accelerates and marketplace pressures intensify, companies need to become ever more agile and innovative, just to keep up.

    Paradoxically, the very technology that made teleworking a real option is now conspiring to keep workers in the office.
