What's Christie's Favorite Thing About Being NJ Governor? [VIDEO]

Crowd laughs as second grade Montville resident's question is answered.

Audrey, a second grader from Montville, grabbed hold of the microphone during a town hall meeting in her town Wednesday to ask Gov. Chris Christie the question on most of the minds of people her age: "What's your favorite thing about being governor?"

Christie first answered seriously, but then gave his "fun answer."

Check out the video above to see what he had to say.

Ojo Rojo, The vast majority of property owners in Northern NJ do contribute their "fair share" to the true costs of running municipalities. Rather, even with the current "high" taxes rates, most towns only collect about 60% of operating costs through revenue alone. They consistently rely on state bailouts - such as the Local Government Aid progam and the like. Building towns zoned for 95% single family homes was the worst fiscal decision we ever made as a democracy. The revenue return per sq. foot is downright abysmal compared with more traditional types of town construction. (they exist is almost every town too - they were all built with private money, and private analysis on return on investment before the massive gov't interference in the housing industry Post-WWII)

Scott Garrett will be voted out next election with his new district. Adam Gussen, a local politician with no publicity and almost non-existent fundraising somehow managed to get nearly 43% of the vote. I'd call that a close race. With a strong contender, Garrett would certainly lose with 75% of the district in Democratic Bergen County.
