Paul Fishman left the event in Jersey City before Christie arrived Thursday.

Both are advocates of prisoner programs to reduce recidivism and trim costs.

The allegations that Christie’s aides created traffic jams in Fort Lee to punish the mayor sparked a criminal investigation led by Fishman.

Christie has denied advance knowledge of the plot that has enveloped his administration as he contemplates a 2016 run for president.

Both Fishman and Christie say too many leave federal and state prisons addicted to drugs, with little education and few opportunities for work.

Fishman says the ability to find work is directly correlated with staying out of jail.
