Chris Christie Aims Salty Language at Dune Opponents

Gov. Chris Christie has a word for opposition by some New Jersey shore homeowners to protective dunes — and it’s a not a nice one.

The governor used an expletive Tuesday during a town hall meeting on Long Beach Island, where Superstorm Sandy caused heavy damage.

He calls the opposition BS, though he used the full word.

Christie was referring to the expressed fears of some dune opponents that boardwalks, bathrooms or amusement rides would be built near their beachfront properties.

The Republican governor says he soon will “call out” stubborn homeowners by name if they continue to refuse to sign easements permitting a beach replenishment project with dunes.

The federal government Monday approved the state’s plan to spend $1.83 billion to help homeowners and businesses get back on their feet.
