Gov. Christie Holds Town Hall Meeting in Freehold [VIDEO]

Here are video clips from the governor's Q & A session at the National Guard Armory in Freehold on Tuesday.

The National Guard Armory in Freehold was packed to capacity for the with Gov. Chris Christie on May 8. 

The session provide residents with an opportunity to ask the governor about subjects ranging from the effects of flooding after Tropical Storm Irene, the New Jersey Supreme Court and various national issues. One boy in the crowd asked whether or not the governor would run for another 4-year term. Christie said he was still considering that.

Christie told the audience that he decided to host town hall style meetings when he became governor because he felt it was the only way to truly speak directly with state residents.

“When I was first elected to governor, I told my staff we've got to come up with a way to communicate with the people in a way that isn’t filtered... So we decided to do this,” he said.

Gov. Christie is a sham and a farce. He is ignoring the most critical of failing public schools in NJ---Lakewood, because he owes allegiance not to the goal of better education, but to the Rabbi Hertz and the Orthodox community of Lakewood, whose votes are critical to his re-election. Hertz tells his community how to vote, and they do it. And Christie, Sen. Singer, and Congressman Chris Smith turn a blind eye to the needs of thousands of poor and minority group children in return for the powerful Orthodox votes! That's what it is...down and dirty. It is immoral and a slap in the face of democracy. The power of any one influential group should be destroyed and the sleezy politicians who yield to their intimidation must be voted out, as they are not fit to govern. And BTW, ditto for the homeless situation in Lakewood, being ignored while the Orthodox community hoards all the Section 8 housing, driving the less scheming and clever poor and homeless into the wood at the Tent City Camp.
