    What are you doing about the employment situation?
    I’m a senior citizen and my taxes keep rising. So what exactly have you done?

  • Billy Capozzi

    Why is school funding being so severely cut? My tuition is rising, and my family is in a pinch because they pay for both my tuition as well as my sisters. How will the state support higher education?

  • James Cicatelli

    Governor Christie please don’t stop the seniors tax freeze we need all the help we can get to stay in the state of NJ. iI am 81 years old an my wife is also over 80 years old.

    Gov Christie;

    You implemented a large tax cut for the wealthy while cutting income for public workers through benefit cuts and layoffs. The purpose being to stimulate the economy and create jobs.

    In Feb 2010 NJ’s unemployment rate stood at 9.7%, this past April it stood at 9.3%, an improvement of 4% . Meanwhile, during that same period, NY’s unemployment rate dropped from =8.8 to 7.9 a 10% drop, and DE’s dropped from 8.7 to 8.2 for a 5.7% drop.

    With the lowest improvement of the three states, do you still see your economic policy as a success?

  • Michael W. Cavalla

    Governor Christie;

    Why doesn’t the State of New Jersey negotiate with the Insurance Companies for the best and cheapest rates, use New Jersey’s clout , if you want to sell health care products in N.J. and benefit for doing business in New Jersey , give us the best cost for our buck.

    Thank you

    It’s none of our business why Christie does not send his kids to public schools but cuts aid to public schools? What he misses is we’re not so interested why he choose private schools but how it looks for the govenor of all the people to cut aid to all the people’s schools while being rich enough to avoid them. And that is an acceptable way for a public servant who works for us to speak? Well, how about this, it also is not your business, meaning State business for you to tell us you don’t think it is wrong to use State funds and helicopter to go to a family function like his kids baseball game. C’mon if he can’t tell that is wrong, its just one more example of his poor judgment and arrogance. He can be a devoted father without asking the taxpayers to fund his trips to his kid’s B-ball games.

    Governor, what would make the Adoptees Birthright Bill acceptable to you?
    (called in to Christie on the Line, tonight, and got three call-backs. Never got the web address of where to continue the discussion.

    He kept himself together almost like a respectable person until the very last caller, Gail, when he unleashed an unreasonable and grotesque “IT’S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS” attack that was needlessly hostile. The woman asked a simple question, like everyone else did. I can’t take anything this guy says as anything other than a personal attack on the middle-class, let alone seriously.

  • Earle

    Well, it IS none of her business as to why ANY citizen chooses a religous education for their children. It’s not government business. He’s a Governor, and ALSO a private citizen.
