Jeanette in Woodbridge - What does Christie think about readdressing the school funding formula to have the funds come through income tax?
Daniel in East Windsor - Why were 2014 property tax rebates never sent out?
Joe in Freehold - Does Christie think it's time to put the Homestead Rebate back in place, and end the Millionaire's Tax?
Christina in Elizabeth - Why are we spending $108 million to pay Pearson (publisher of PARCC Exam), and $93 million to NJ SMART (data transferring company)? Where is all of this money coming from?
Sid in Princeton - Why can't we cut road costs instead of raising the gas tax?
Andrew in Bayhead - Why are we accepting fracking waste and who is profiting from it?
Anthony in Edison - What does Christie think about making more low income housing opportunties?

Steven in Brick - What does Christie plan on doing about illegal immigration in New Jersey and in the US?
Roger in High Bridge - Why do we have to pay an exit tax when we move out of New Jersey?
John in South Brunswick - Where does the funding from DUI Surcharges go? Would we be able to use that to fix the roads?

Bobby on the Parkway - Does Christie have any plans to rebuild New Jersey after the many closings that have happened in Atlantic City, and the closing of the Izod Center?
