Christie explains his Youtube persona (Video)

IMG_5240 (640x545)Governor Chris Christie came to national prominence in large measure through his unorthodox “Jersey style” of giving as good as he gets from citizens at his Town Hall meetings and reporters back in the early days of his administration when he talked to the New Jersey press corp.   Calling a reporter “thin skinned” and telling him “you should see me when I’m really pissed,” calling a reporter and a former Navy seal an “idiot,” telling former Asbury Park Councilman Jim Keady to “sit down and shut up,” and many other “Youtube moments” have contributed to Christie’s national appeal and also been a cause for concern for many about his temperament should he become President of the United States.

On Tuesday afternoon at a Town Hall meeting at Old Bridge High School, Cheryl Meyer, a kindergarten teacher in Woodbridge, asked Christie to explain.

MATAWAN, FAIR HAVEN MAYORS ANNOUNCE FRIENDLY WAGER ON SATURDAY’S CJ GROUP 2 CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL GAME

Proceeds to benefit local food bank of the winner’s choice

Matawan Mayor Paul Buccellato and Fair Haven Mayor Mike Halfacre announced today that they, along with the council members in both boroughs, have engaged in a friendly wager on the upcoming Central Jersey Group 2 high school football championship game between the Matawan Huskies and the Rumson-Fair Haven Bulldogs.

The Mayors and Councils of the two municipalities have agreed that the losers of the wager will donate $200 worth of food to the foodbank of the winner’s choice.

The game will take place Saturday December 4th at 3pm at Kean University.

“In the spirit of friendly competition, I asked Mayor Bucellato to join me in this friendly wager and I’m glad he accepted,” said Halfacre. “Due to the difficult economic conditions, food banks are being hit with a double whammy: less people donating and more people who need help. If we can have some fun with this and at the same time raise awareness and make a nice donation, I think it’s a win for everyone.”

Buccellato agreed, stating “that economy has had an impact on numerous families in the area” and the two municipalities wanted to do something that would benefit the community. “There is a critical need among the local and regional food banks as they are experiencing unprecedented food shortages,” Buccellato said. “We believe that we can help this need and at the same time support our football teams.”

If Rumson-Fair Haven wins, the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties will receive a donation of food. In Matawan wins, the donation will go to the St. Mark’s Food Kitchen at Trinity Episcopal Church in Matawan.

Anyone wishing to make a donation of food to the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean can call 732-918-2600 or email [email protected] Donations to St. Mark’s Food Kitchen can be arranged by calling 732-591-9210 or emailing [email protected]
