Governor Chris Christie will be back on Monmouth County on Monday morning.

At 7 am, the governor is scheduled to appear on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Show which will be broadcast live from the Five Ave Pavilion in Asbury Park.

At 11am, Christie and U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan  are scheduled to visit businesses and greet patrons along Bay Avenue in Highlands, starting from The Memoria Project in Veterans’ Park.  At 11:45, he will hold a press conference at Moby’s, 2 South Bay Ave.

Christie is expected to announce federal approval of $1.8 billion in relief funds for housing, infrastructure and business recovery activities, according to a report in The Star Ledger.
