Gov. Chris Christie plans to hold his first town hall meeting of the year this week.

The forums are where many of the outspoken governor's YouTube moments have happened.

The question-and-answer portion is always free-flowing and often unpredictable. But Christie could have a new message in the scripted opening segment when he speaks in the southern New Jersey community of Voorhees on Wednesday.

The meeting takes place one day after the governor delivers his State of the State address in Trenton, laying out priorities for 2012.
