Christie to hold town hall event in Long Branch
LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is headed back to the Jersey shore for his latest in a series of summer town hall events.
The governor will speak to voters in Long Branch on Tuesday as part of his “No Pain, No Gain” tour where Christie has stressed the need to reform the state’s pension system.
Previous town hall events this summer have featured protests by retirees and political and labor groups. But last week’s town hall in Ocean City was dominated by casino workers who urged Christie to do more to help save their jobs.
