Corzine asks 500 state employees for resignation

Newly inaugurated governor Jon Corzine’s administration has asked nearly 500 appointed state workers to hand in their letters of resignation.

Corzine said that some will keep their jobs and some can be replaced by new workers.

Although it is not unusual for a new governor to ask officials appointed by their predecessors to step down, Corzine’s initiative is part of his promise to cut 800 state jobs as part of his plan to help the state’s ailing economy.
