Newark resident Donna Jackson testified before the Assembly Budget Committee at the panel’s second public hearing on Governor Jon Corzine’s FY 2010 State Budget proposal. She testified all right. A snippet of sound from Jackson’s testimony will be on the New Jersey 101.5 FM website tomorrow morning (3/27) shortly after 5am. It is a must-listen. This is my 8th budget cycle and Jackson’s testimony is, by far, the most compelling I’ve ever heard. She articulately and seamlessly critiques Governor Jon Corzine, Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and north Jersey political powerbroker Steve Adubato. You will not listen to this sound file just once. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve listened to it. This is what public testimony is all about.

To hear Jackson, log onto and scroll down to the box that reads “The Clips; Taking A Look Under the Gold Dome”
