OPINION: Christie Appearance In Belmar - What You Won't Hear

Governor Chris Christie is coming back to Monmouth County for a Town Hall Meeting in Belmar next Tuesday, March 25.

The meeting will be held in the Borough Gymnasium, 601 Main Street, at 11:00 a.m.  Doors will open at 9:30 am and seating is first come first served.

Christie’s office asks that you RSVP at  TownHall.Belmar@gov.state.nj.us to ensure adequate seating.

Following the Town Hall, a Christie Administration Mobile Cabinet will remain on site to meet with affected residents and answer questions related to the available Sandy recovery housing and business assistance programs. 

No bags of any kind are permitted in the venue and all personal items are subject to search. Due to safety requirements, law enforcement officers will be in attendance and will wand all attendees.  Hopefully, law enforcement on the scene will adhere to the attorney general's rule about taping people who disagree with the governor.

If you want a civil response to your question, they should not include the following topics:

1) Bridgegate

2) Zimmergate

3) Sandy money being diverted elsewhere

4) Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno's professional experience.

All other questions may be asked.

Ask Christie why doesn't he ever use e-mail? He has said to confidantes in the past he doesn't like to put things down in writing.

Christie was good until he decided to run for Prez. Now he panders to the far right and has lost credibility. I don't like the platform he and Storm Sandy have given our egotistical Mayor either

Many Sandy victims have turned against him after seeing how he botched the recovery.

There were questions about the Abbot Districts. 31 school districts receive 67% of the State Money for Education. 500+ districts only get 37% of the budget. Look at the facilities in local Abott districts. They have wonderful facilities. I think this is great but maybe it's time to give some of it to the other 500+ districts that are struggling.
