The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office is concerned that a Middletown con man may have fleeced far more people than they already have identified.

If Governor Chris Christie’s presidential prospects have been damaged by the Bridgegate scandal and associated investigations, you wouldn’t know it by the amount of television cameras at the Town Hall Meeting in Port Monmouth this morning. Middletown officials estimate the crowd was about 500 people. There was easily 50 members of the media including reporters, photographers and videographers.
There was no swagger from the Governor today. No fist pumps, no snazzy introductory video, no in your face insults to hostile questioners. Christie dodged the only hostile question he heard. The Youtube moment came not from an idiot or thin skinned reporter, but from a three year old girl who said her house is still broken.
Bridgegate, the controversy over the September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge that has spurred investigations by the U.S. Attorney and a Special Legislative Committee never came up. The people who came to today’s meeting would gladly trade places with the Bergen County residents who were inconvenienced by traffic jams for four days. They been without their homes for 16 months.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Presidential Politics, Chris Christie, RREM, Superstorm Sandy | Tags: 2016 Presidential politics, Chris Christie, Christie Town Hall Meeting, Media, Middletown, Port Monmouth, Reconstruction Rehabilitation Elevation and Mitigation, RREM, Sea Bright, Tom Largey | Comments Off on A New Christie For A New Normal

The Town Hall scheduled for Tuesday February 18th at the VFW Hall in Port Monmouth in postponed due to anticipated inclement weather.
Details of the rescheduled meeting will be released on Tuesday, the governor’s office said in a press release.
Additionally, the governor announced that a delayed opening of 11 am for all state offices on Tuesday to allow for ample time for roads, parking lots and sidewalks to be cleared and made safe for travel.
“Tonight’s winter storm is expected to last through tomorrow morning, bringing additional snow and creating hazardous travel conditions for the morning commute,” said Christie. “I strongly encourage all New Jerseyans to drive slowly and exercise caution on the roads tonight and tomorrow morning. I thank our state’s transportation crews and first responders for their tireless efforts to keep our residents safe.”Posted: February 17th, 2014 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Christie, Superstorm Sandy | Tags: Chris Christie, Christie Town Hall Meeting, Middletown, Port Monmouth, Town Hall Postponed due to weather, VFW Post 2179 | Comments Off on Christie’s Town Hall Postponed Due To Weather
Christie Town Hall tomorrow expected to be “A cross between the Jerry Springer and Maury Povich shows”
Governor Chris Christie will likely be tan and relaxed after a holiday weekend in Puerto Rico when he arrives in Middletown for his first Town Hall Meeting since last June tomorrow.
He should be ready for bear.
Christie could get RREM’d tomorrow.
Bayshore residents who overwhelmingly voted for Christie in 2009 and again last November are ready to give up on giving Christie the benefit of the doubt. The politically connected feel he’s taken Republican Monmouth and Ocean Counties for granted. Those still suffering from the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy feel like Christie has ridden their suffering to national prominence while neglecting his self professed “mission” to rebuild the shore.
The powder keg of frustration with Christie was building before the election and certainly before Bridgegate. Sandy victims brutalized by the storm feel further violated by the red tape and false starts peddled by all levels of government, banks and insurance companies.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Bridgegate, Chris Christie, Middletown, Monmouth County, RREM, Superstorm Sandy | Tags: Bridgegate, Chris Chirisite, Middletown, Monmouth County, Port Monmouth, Reconstruction Rehabilitation Elevation and Mitigation, RREM, Superstorm Sandy, Town Hall, VFW Post 2179 | 4 Comments »
