This morning (9/19) Governor Chris Christie called into Jim Gearhart's show to provide an update to a complaint brought up on the "Ask the Governor" program from a host of complaints over higher tax bills in Monroe Township even though there is a 2 percent property tax cap in place.

On air, Governor Christie announced that a Department of Community Affairs investigation found that Mayor Richard Pucci's budget violated the property tax cap by increasing more than 500,000 over the cap.

As a result, Christie says all Monroe property tax bills will be adjusted by November 1st.

Jim also asked the Governor whether or not any of the rumors of the Governor having a future as a political commentator were true. Governor Christie  absolutely denied those rumors and says he has not been approached by any network or received any offers to become a political analyst.

The Governor also stayed tight-lipped on his future as to whether or not he will run for re-election as Governor only saying that he will make the decision when the times comes.
