Former Gov. Chris Christie has raised close to $800,000 in committed funding for a nonprofit he started with his wife that gives $3,000 forgivable loans to small businesses struggling to remain open amid the coronavirus outbreak, the couple said Tuesday.
Christie and former First Lady Mary Pat Christie say they’ve received more than 3,000 applications from small businesses since they launched the nonprofit last month. The group, the New Jersey 30-Day Fund, has approved funding for 120 businesses from the more than 3,000 they’ve received, they said.
Today, it is virtually impossible for any member of the public — and even some members of the New Jersey Legislature — to know how or even if the state is spending more than $5 billion received so far from the federal government to deal with COVID-19.

We need more thinkers like David in our politics. I send my deepest condolences to his family at this awful time. May his memory be a blessing to them.”

of the pleadings filed on Friday in State v Mayor John Moor and Asbury Park,
docket number C-56-20, shows that Governor Murphy filed a complaint against the
City and sought an emergent preliminary injunction. The purpose was to restrain Asbury Park from
enforcing their resolution of last Wednesday, where they tried to allow Asbury
Park restaurants to conduct indoor dining.
