Less than a day after Gov. Chris Christie delivers on Tuesday his budget address for fiscal year 2015, he’ll be holding a town hall in his home county of Morris.
The governor’s office announced Christie will conduct his 111th town hall in Long Hill Township on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. Christie will highlight his budget and reform initiatives following the address, and answer questions from the audience.
Christie held his first town hall of 2014 on Thursday in Middletown, where the focus was on Superstorm Sandy recovery aid and the red tape New Jersey has had to fight through with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The topic of “Bridgegate” – a scandal surrounding the governor’s administration is regarding Fort Lee lane closures to the George Washington Bridge in September 2013 being handled as political retribution – was ignored by audience members.
Averaging more than 25 town hall sessions each year he’s been in gubernatorial offices, the meetings have become stages for the governor and New Jersey residents to interact less formally, often times bringing out Christie’s subtle and not-so-subtle side.
Doors open for the event at 9:30 a.m. and seating is on a first come, first served basis. No bags of any kind are permitted and all personal items are subject to a search.
The event will be held in the Long Hill Community Center at 1229 Valley Road and South Warren Avenue in Stirling. Residents are encouraged to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
