#HipNJ scored an exclusive invite to Governor Chris Christie‘s Town Hall Meeting in Hanover Township, and we learned about the latest in the Garden State political scene!
Governor Christie, who is still mulling over a presidential run, did not shy away from the hot button issues affecting #HipNJ citizens. From pension and healthcare reform, to gun rights, mental health and balancing the budget, nothing was off the table as our highlight reel shows.
No matter your political party, there’s no doubting the passion Governor Christie has for his job and the well-being of New Jersey.
“I was born here, I was raised here, and I love this state. This is where I raise my children, and this is where I hope they raise their children.”
There were some lighter moments too. Governor Christie’s classmates from Livingston High School were on hand, and we learned that despite his high profile, he would be attending his 35th high school reunion celebration in April. We also learned that his son is a baseball player for Princeton University, and that after the meeting he and his wife Mary Pat were going to cheer on the Tigers‘ game at Seton Hall University.
It’s hip to stay informed and get involved. For more on Governor Christie, stay connected to State.NJ.US/Governor.
